How many families are going to US for a week or more each year? Not nearly as many as Disney and that doesn't even include the DVC members that are there all the time.
Good news that the profits are there. Please be assured that a goo chunk of those profits are needed and will be used to continue updating and expanding the options at the parks. I still think the cost is reasonable for what my family gets.
I agree, I'm happy Disney is doing well, because I know they will continue to deliver top notch vacations. You get what you pay for and I'm ok with paying a little more for continued quality!
