There are 10 kinds of people in the world-- those who understand the binary numbering system, and those who do not.

Really? If you don't want to debate, don't make comments on a discussion forum, and also don't refer to people as skunks simply because they have different opinions than yours.

And you complain about condescending!

Good idea. This way it is just your argument, not you, that stinks.

I'm a little late to the party here, but since when does having a business degree give you complete insight into a business? I have no idea what goes on internally at Disney, and I'm working on an MBA. Sure, I'd like stuff cheaper, but I'm still paying. And judging by the crowds when I visit the parks, other people are too.

You can argue all day as to why Disney is so crowded. I would imagine that there are as many reasons as there are opinions. That doesn't mean that a single person's perception of value is wrong. It is actually very correct for that person.

I guess that my point is that I don't see the point in going on about how successful Disney is and therefore that must mean that they are right and all of their critics are wrong. All of that is meaningless when it comes to Internet discussions.

Disney is certainly doing well and that is a good thing for them and their stockholders. I do keep wondering why so many people have so much money nowadays though. I guess that I'm just a wee bit envious.

I have to believe that part of it is the fact that so many families had to put off big vacations for the last several years and now they are finally able to go. That doesn't mean that these families a going to be back again in a year or they end up not being able to return for several more years. Time will tell.

How does Disney ensure fairness to ALL Guests with young children while still dealing with scammers, liars, and thieves?

It's unfortunate that honest people are suffering thanks to it, but this is the result in a change of society, and how Disney chooses to react to it.
How about showing proof of age like a bc? You should be traveling with it to get on the plane anyways....

You only need proof of age on a plane if you're traveling on an age specific fare (like a lap child or an infant fare). DD flew with us in March, but we just bought her a regular seat (we wanted her in a seat and the lowest fare happened to be one that was not age restricted). We did not have to show her birth certificate at any point.

I would be perfectly fine showing proof of age for my children. I don't want to lie in front of my children or encourage them to lie. But I know this is not the popular opinion other places. I am part of an online moms group and there was a poll recently about whether you would lie to get your child into things for free/cheaper price. Almost every single person said they had no problem lying as long as they thought they could get away with it.
