    Wow have not seen you around in a while. Hope all is well. Miss your photo's.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    So I'll bite, what is the significance of 102? More than a play off of the 101 course level?

    There are many books out there titled "101" this and that, but since in Disneyspeak 101 is a bad thing, he decided to go with 102

    Started reading it today - thanks to a NJ "work from home snow day" - it's really well done. Lots of golden nuggets, beautiful pics and good tips inside. Plus a fun, easy read - not dry or too "listy" if you know what I mean.

    Re: So, what is 102?

    I guess there is a need for these types of books, under Iger it is getting more and more difficult for average families to visit as they once had.

    Wall Street is nervous with the Price Leveraging strategy employed by Disney over the last few years. It's one of the reasons they keep asking about MyMagic+; to see that WDW is doing anything to generate new revenue besides just raising prices.

    They've already seen the impact of higher prices (actually, less generous discounts) on hotel occupancy, dropping from 89% in 2008 to 79% last year. Keep in mind that WDW hotel occupancy was 76% in the 12 months immediately after 9/11, and that was an abysmal time for WDW.

    They know theme park prices can go up only so far until there will be an impact on attendance.
