    You need more?

    This isn't a buffet Danny.

    You get what your server brings. You don't like it, you dine elsewhere. (though I do hope you're a pity tipper and will leave me 30% for mediocre service!)

    But since you're a pal, I'll tell you this comes from empoyees inside the company who have access to numbers on a regular (i.e. daily, weekly, monthly) basis.

    As to how they're inflated, I believe I told you the games that are played with everything from hard-ticket events and park-hopping to CM comps and even EMH.

    A lot of clicks that shouldn't count, do.

    And a lot of Chicago-style voting (or Florida these days) tends to happen as well.

      And it isn't TEA that comes up with the numbers, they hire ERA to come up with the actual numbers, who are experts at doing things like this. Heck, Walt Disney hired them to try and figure out where to build Disneyland in Southern California back in the early 50's. And I think they did a GREAT job in figuring out where the center of SoCal would be 50 years later!
      I seem to recall that Euro Disney SCA has also released some numbers in the past.


      I really don't find it hard to believe the numbers for the Magic Kingdom are padded. Five million people though seems to be a lot of padding.

        I didn't know Cedar Fair released their figures. Unless you have the stock I am not sure your going to see it.
