Ohh man! I so want to go back Disney. I don’t want to wait for kids either. I don’t think they’ll appreciate as much as I would. The last time I was there was in 1995, so its been eleven years since I’ve been there.
Check out what happened in the Magic Kingdom.
Disney’s Theme Park Biz Picks Up
The Walt Disney Co., which saw attendance at its theme parks plunge following the 9/11 attacks and only recently begin to rise again, got good news and bad on Wednesday. Crowds wanting to get into Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney-MGM Studios were so huge that officials at the three parks were forced to close each of them down at various times. The bad news: Those who couldn’t get in, many with crying kids in their cars, were understandably angered, and the last thing that Disney wants to contend with is angry visitors to its theme parks. Some of them waited out the closures by filing into Epcot, Disney’s least popular attraction at the Florida site and the only one that did not shut down. The Orlando Sentinel reported that it was not unusual for Magic Kingdom to be shut down because of huge crowds — it was forced to close for 55 minutes on Christmas day — but no one could recall the last time that three parts of Disney World had to limit access on the same day.
Craziness! I wonder where all the people came from? And why wasn’t Disney prepared for such an onslaught of people? Reminds me of the days when I used to love playing Roller coaster Tycoon. God I loved that game!
