I'm talking about the expansion, which is still an ongoing project.Originally Posted by Jackdack
I'm not saying that nobody but locals are coming. What I am saying is that it's becoming less unique in the face of competition. Whereas some people have difficulty thinking of anything related to Florida other than Disney, DL is more and more becoming a part of a larger Southern California vacation. Plans that include Knotts, Legoland, other LA attractions, not so much Magic Mountain of course.Anyway,if you are going to take that attitude then allow me to remind you that many of the guests at Disneyland are from Australia, New Zealand and Japan which last time a checked qualified as tourists. The hotels at the resort have recently been at high capacity and just regional guests wouldn't fork over the money to stay over night.
DL is due for an E-Ticket real soon now, but the fact that the park is relying so heavily on seeing the same guests over and over again, who become "tired" of attractions because their close proximity allows them to go to Disneyland so much, that is part of the problem. That is what will quickly cheapen the resort into something concerned more with bringing in the next quick-fix attraction to keep the locals entertained rather than building the elegant, elaborate rides we saw in the 70s.He doesn't understand the needs of the Disneyland property the main one is variety and freshness. Since the majority of guests are locals there needs to be new draws often so the experience doesn't get stale, this also applies to the entertainment not just attractions.
Baloney. FL has been the flagship for decades, and right now that's a bad thing because it's not in nearly the condition it ought to be to wear that title.Don't play poo-poo on Disneyland, besides we all know WDW isn't the shining jewel in the crown of the Parks and Resorts division (though Rasulo wishes it was). The original Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney's Disneyland will always reign supreme.
Personally, I don't MIND the MK as it is, but I will see where people can dream for improvements, since the other cities do each aspect bettter. Tokyo has better service, Paris is prettier, Anaheim has a stellar attractions lineup. When you consider that the MK is the center of the Disney theme park universe (no matter how much you want to talk about where Walt walked), it seems depressing that it's not a superior park in any aspect.
