Look what happened when Harry Potter open at Universal Orlando. It was literally hours wait just to get in. Did Universal ever come up with a policy to contain the crowds? Did they ever come up with a attendance cap? Did they have some kind of fast pass system that limits people per day? The only thing I remember hearing was they had a system where people had a time to enter but that was only because the fire codes could only allow so many people in the space and they packed that sucker to every last body they could both legally and physically fit in for years. So no I don't think this is just Japan alone, they are simply more use to it but EVERYONE would do it if they could...and have.
I'm only saying this idea that Disneyland being extremely busy is A. Something Disney sees as a 'problem' is clearly false and B. That this is what most companies strive for. In fact opening day of the place, wasn't it like tens of thousands more than they thought would show up? Did they turn anyone away? I'm really asking because IIRC they had no problem letting as many in as they can squeeze in and that seem to have always been the policy literally since day one.
Now I'm not saying its not a problem on some levels. They can probably do a better job HANDLING the crowds, no doubt. And I think people have to remember DL is a 60 year old park. It was built with a much daily less attendance in mind when there were simply much less people living in the area and not everyone was hopping on airplanes as easily as today. Obviously thats part of the reason why DCA was built to find a way to balance out the crowds. And DCA is clearly a park that was built to handle bigger crowds from day one even if its a smaller capacity. Its amazing how when you go to DCA even if the place is jammed there is just a more freer feeling walking around because the walk ways are just bigger and there is a lot of flow areas DL just doesn't have. But thats 40 years of theme park building to go on.
So I'm not really disagreeing something probably should be done in terms of how crowds are handled at DL but I don't think DL remotely cares. Not at all. To them its just more bragging rights to their shareholders and end of the day I'm sorry people, if you simply feel the park is too busy then you have the choice not to go. In this day and age where we have so many tools to tell us how crowded these places get it makes our decision even easier.
