Re: Gas Prices and attendance?
Over the decades I've seen it happen. If people have to pay more for air transportation or gas they might stay at a cheaper hotel or stay less days. If they have a vacation budget something has to give if travel takes a bigger bite.
It will be interesting to see if Disney sticks to phasing out the discounts.
My humble opinion is attendance is up because many can afford just because there is the discount of kids stay and play, dining, or heavily discounted rooms. Take those choices away and add in higher transportation costs, Disney could be looking at a decline in attendance.
Time will tell.
