This same story comes up every 3 months or so. Five million visitors sounds pretty good to me though...?

At least this article did not get itno the "peeing and pooping" in public as evidence of Disney's complete "local culture" ignorance. I wonder how they are dealing with that little (smelly) snafu?

With a population of a billion, they can stay open for 200 years and not see the same visitor twice...which would work if nobody spoke to each other. And hey, after two hundred years, they'd have a whole new set of people to "pee" off. ;)

If the problem is overcrowding, then the solution is pretty obvious, high capacity attractions. POTC with two tracks instead of one, Big Thunder Mt. as a racing coaster, etc.
