Agreed. I would say, however, that Disney’s goals don’t always pan out. I’m hoping this experiment fails, they adjust the tiering… and that this happens before late April 2020!
The problem with HS, even with all the new new content (or perhaps in a sense BECAUSE of the new content) is that it’s too many chiefs, not enough Indians. They’re now stocked with Space Mountains, but devoid of It’s a Small Worlds. At HS, the shows are it’s IASW… but many customers are ride-centric, and pass on the shows, which kills the sort of park dispersion we know Disney aims at (huge ride lines, under-utilized show capacity).
Disney knows, as we now do, that FPP changes customer behaviour. A customer who, left to their own devices, would never attend the Little Mermaid show, might do so now because they’re sitting there with a force-fed FPP in their MDE.
