    What is the AP breakdown?

    Thanks for correcting my calculation.

    According to Al Lutz, the "vast majority" of APs are the Premium but I wonder what "vast majority" means. The difference in the park attendance after the local APs blackout was significant.

    Some of that AP revenue goes to the City of Anaheim which operates the parking garage.

    So it really whittles down quickly.

    The merchandising is a little over the top, IMHO. So many people walking around with those spinning light gizmos, swords, balls, glowing necklaces and other junk. That must add up to a chunk o' change.

    So does anybody reading this have an idea of the distribution of AP sales ?

    I'm curious, where did you get that information? I have never seen anaheim anything in the DLR structure.

    Trivia: Because engineers did not include the weight of parked cars when designing the Mickey and Friends parking structure's foundation, the structure is sinking into the ground at a such a high rate that a new story will have to be built every ten years unless Disney wants to end up with a completely underground parking structure!

    No problem. Simple mistake.

    ...
    That build-up of pressure needs a release. I don't think it would take too many (say, 50,000 or so Disney fanatics barred from their happy place for more than two months (without an additional $30)) to cause the attendance bump.

    Kevin Yee had an idea, long time ago. Things might have changed since then. There's no archive (hint, hint, nudge, nudge), so we'll just have make stuff up. Also, the higher the price, the more visits required to make up the price in order to get one's money's worth. So, if there are more PAP's than I think (or, more around what you think), I'll simply raise the average number of visits. So there! Ha! Math trickery!
