Ya know, that's a valid point you make about the fact that they aren't using the AP to track purchasing, only as proof in order to give the PAP discount. I'm suprised that Disney isn't using the technology available to them to track purchasing habits of their AP guests. Hmmmm, wonder why? (so much data, so little time to decipher it all)
But it is interesting that they are giving upgrades for frequent visits by AP holders. Very interesting... Maybe I should try staying on property more often.
We're supposed to be getting new touch screen cash registers sometime in the near future where I believe, we'll be scanning APs, etc. for discounts. Let the tracking begin!
The thing about Disneyland is people pay all this money to get a unique experience. Disneyland is the best themed park in my opinion. People will pay any amount because you cant go on "Disneyland" original style rides anywhere else. Six Flags, No. Universal Studios, No. Knott's Berry Farm, No, Seaworld, No.
