Why should Disney bother when they know they have the kid market covered... Honestly... NO LOCAL PARKS cater to TODDLERS and FAMILIES. On the radio this morning I overheard the DJ's talking about not taking a kid to Knott's and Universal unless they are around 12 or 13. Yeah some kids could be younger or older but would you really want a 5 year old walking though GhostTown during Haunt?

IMHO...No, they are not taking it too seriously. I think the Anaheim parks all have their demographic and are happy to stick with it. Knotts and Universal knows Disney will always win when it comes to drawing the "younger" crowd. Disney doesn't need to compete with two other parks for the teen to adult crowd so they let it go.
I don't see any of them changing that rather convienient situation. As far as what they all do in Florida, I have no idea and really don't worry about it. (shrug)
