Is #Disneyland’s attendance falling? And if it did, would that be a bad thing?
The theme park industry’s annual attendance report came out last week, and it reported a nearly 2 percent attendance drop for Disneyland and nearly 1 percent decline at #Disney California Adventure in 2016.
That might seem hard to believe for many Disneyland fans that spent the past year crammed in pathways around Fantasy Faire or the Matterhorn on a Friday night. But remember that Disneyland was coming off the wildly popular Diamond Celebration last year. And, the closure of Big Thunder Trail, the Disneyland Railroad and the Rivers of America attractions for Star Wars land construction made the rest of the park seem more crowded even as fewer people might have been visiting.
