A lot of the talk of overcrowding focuses on how bad the lines get for the major "E" ticket attractions.
This is countered by many examples of how during those massive waits, many other rides are running radically under capacity.
It makes sense, really. You have no restriction beyond inconvenient wait times to restrict how many people can ride once they're through the gates, and the "E" tickets are designated that for a reason.
So, how about a return to ticket books? Let's grab that baby and get to tossing some bathwater.
Free park admission, free use of restaurants, shops and paid attractions (no, not free lunch, just not requiring a gate fee to shop/dine), tickets in the traditional A-E structure for everything else.
Thoughts? I can see how this would reduce the lines in the major crunch attractions while also increasing the utilization of the "lesser" rides.
