Take these with a grain of salt. They could be completely wrong. So wrong, in fact, that your eyeballs may burst into flames simply by reading the next couple of paragraphs.
(1) We hear the current free dining offer (free dining for check-ins through December 17, 2009) will be extended from a PIN code to the general public in the near future.
(1b) The alternative offer we’re hearing about is the return of the “Buy-4-Get-7″ deal from earlier this year. That seems to have been another PIN code offer, albeit to a more limited audience.
(2) We expect ticket prices to increase around August 2. My guess is that it’ll be single-digit percentage increases for one-day tickets and double-digit percentage increases for multi-day tickets, especially those in the 3 to 7 day range. Probably higher for kids than adults.
(3) I would not be surprised to see that Disney’s park attendance levels have dropped, year-over-year, since the end of the first “Buy-4-Get-7″ offer in June, about 1% every week since then. Give or take. I’m just saying.
Just a hunch.
