  1. Of course – cut back shows to create longer lines every where! Another step to save money, create crowds and longer lines. This will be a test for them to cut shows all the time. Making vacation more difficult for guests is their goal. See how much they can push. They are betting (with profits) that Walt’s dream will keep people coming – no matter how much they destroy the dream.
