Re: WDW neglected?
I was with "why would you" until 2004. We took 2 week family vacations to WDW and frankly with teens 4 nights in Universal and 7 in WDW including water parks seemed to be a good balance. Staying at Portofino gave my family unlimited free FP's onto their attractions that offered FP. One night they did Men in Black many times in a row jumping to the front of the line each time. We enjoyed their water rides too. Normally I don't like being soaked but we wore quick dry and hit all of them and a quick boat ride to hotel changed and back to the parks. At WDW if I rode the Rapids @ AK it would take me forever to get back to my hotel. So we found a good balance between the competing parks.

I like being able to enjoy adult beverages in the evening and getting on a bus instead of behind the wheel too. We take a town car from airport to Universal and to WDW and ME back to the airport on family trips.
True, it is counted as a re-entry if it the same park. Yet if you hit all four parks in one day on a hopper, each park receives a ding for attendance. I'm am sure that is why the attendance numbers are so high for DHS and AK, two half day parks for many yet the statistics get a little muddled. Because of the hopper DHS and AK are ahead of Islands, yet if it was possible to breakdown those numbers a little better at WDW I believe Islands DHS and AK are likely very close in annual attendance.

It isn't that the attraction is that popular by guests per day, it is because the guests per hour is so low. I fail to understand how Imagineers could get the loading at a respectable rate at Buzz and then blow it with TSM? The opposite you may forgive but how do you take basically the same exact experience and not get it right the second time?

My kids enjoyed Indy when tiny but it is antiquated and smelly. Likely one of the worst GREEN attractions. This is another attraction that looks to be popular yet in reality the line backs up because the load time is painfully slow.
