But you can't take Disney home with you. You are doing exactly what he said. You buy 10 days now, you use 5 days and expect Disney to have 5 days available for you when you want them. You can't take them home, you can't put them in your freezer. The expectation is that Disney will be open, have the capacity and staffing at any time that you wish to arrive.

That does not allow Disney to plan for capacity; to know what adequate staffing is required.

Anyone care to guess how many unexpired tickets there are out there?

None of that holds water.

On the "buns" analogy, you aren't charged a premium to buy buns and freeze them later. Disney does charge for the no expiration option, and is free to raise that price if they feel it necessary, just like all their other prices.

But even more importantly, Disney sells all kinds of tickets online and over the phone, and they have no idea when you will actually come and activate them. They base staffing and other attendance related decisions on their attendance projections, not outstanding ticket projections.

Finally, the idea that Disney loses money if you hold your ticket is poppycock as well. Yes, their prices do go up over time, but if you don't use your ticket Disney also has access to your money until you do use it. Essentially, you are giving Disney an interest free loan until you use your ticket. Plus, you just might lose your ticket, or just forget about it. Then they keep your money for nothing
