That park attendance figure is misleading. At WDW, park attendance at MK had fallen to the 30's that first year of the recession. Hotel reservations had dropped 10-15% even with heavy, heavy discounting.

MK 2008 - 17,063,000 (46,575 avg per day)
MK 2016 - 20,500,000 (56,164 avg per day)

When you factor in that peak travel times, even during the recession, WDW draw large crowds. Which makes the per day average even worse during the slower times.

PS - The attendance numbers are an estimate because Disney does not release hard attendance numbers.
Love, Faith and Pixie dust!

I had just assumed that it would be a perfect time for foreigners to take advantage and flock to WDW because other currencies became stronger and they could afford more when the USD was weak. But this shows, yet again, that the economic struggle was a global one. We are all interconnected.

Such great insight! Thank you all for contributing!!
