No, I think I should help start a societal discussion about the plight of lower income families not being able to afford Disneyland tickets.

Perhaps I will call some radio phone in programs and also start some blogs about the issue.

Maybe Disneyland will start offering more subsidized tickets for the poor due to the bad publicity.

First, yes I think they put up ads in Canada. Universal Studios and Disney World advertise in China and that's a lot farther away. Second Sea World is in a lot of fucking movies and Shamu is a household name. It's like not knowing about the Statue of Liberty.

I'm down for subsidized internet and if that is the cheapest/easiest way to get them internet might as well toss the cable in along the way.

Or you could have networks that carry only children's programs. I think there is enough material around to manage that.

That would help some but not most. Either higher poor income or lower prices would work better. Though if the park does well at higher prices it is not likely that much will change seeing that the objective of the operation is to make money.

True, but the underlying problems are the same no matter where you look.

I concur with the subsidizing. Access to information is critical to success these days. The HAVES cannot control both ends of the information cycle (as the Producer of the information and the main Consumer).

Internet fees are outrageous. The prices are RIGGED but you'll never hear an FCC official say that.

This is major news because Disney has NEVER released any attendance figures for any of its parks.

The poor I know use their tax refunds to go to Disney; thats the refund they get tho they pay no income tax, cuz of all the child deductions and other credits.

Disney is a proud member of the welfare-industrial complex.

Well, I thought about that, but I didn't want to get into that level of complexity in this discussion.

You're right, though, it does seem like some lower income people seem to have no trouble paying high prices for entertainment, dining out, "cool" clothes, etc. I've wondered how they have money for all that stuff.

Of any company where they buy the product. Businesses pay no taxes. They pass those on to the consumers who pay them.

Let's try again. Since you're saying that "businesses don't pay taxes" they pass the cost onto their customers, do you support eliminating these taxes?

Let's try the whole thread again since none of it is accurate.

Nobody said they released anything. Attendance isn't a huge secret. It's tracked from the outside like almost everything else.

At best you might get an estimate.
