Article: As Disney World turns 40, its strategy shifts

From the Orlando Sentinel. Thought it was interesting.

The general plan seems to be to squeeze as much as possible from the guests they have rather than trying to attract more guests.

I'm a little nervous about having to reserve your ride time. Does this mean the end of the Fast Pass?

I really don't think that is ever going to happen!

I don't like having to reserve ride times either. I'm a planner by nature and profession, but even I can't know when I'm going to want to ride a ride. That's just ridiculous!

As far as I am concerned I don't even know what I want for dinner tomorrow evening, never mind 180 days from now, much less what ride I am going to want to ride, at what time, and what park I will want to be at. I am much too spontaneous for that.
