Go woke, go broke: Disney World experiences massive attendance drop

Disney World experienced a massive drop in attendance over Independence Day weekend as its social changes may now be impacting Disney's theme parks.

A new report noted large differences in wait times compared with previous years.

The change

"The average posted wait time at the Magic Kingdom park in Florida—which has a special fireworks display on July 4—was 27 minutes this year for the holiday, down from 31 minutes in 2022 and 47 minutes in 2019, the Touring Plans analysis shows," the Wall Street Journal reported.

“It’s something that nobody would have predicted—just unfathomable,” says Len Testa, a computer scientist who runs Touring Plans. Testa says wait times rose in the following days, according to the report.

The reasons

"Could it be that other factors are hurting Disney World attendance? Perhaps the fact that Disney has openly embraced grooming is a factor. Perhaps Disney sexualizing everything aimed at kids is a factor. Perhaps turning its theme parks into a joyless, Woke Dystopia might have something to do with this," Breitbart News wrote.

"Perhaps, decent parents no longer feel it’s safe to expose their impressionable, innocent children to a company desperate to destroy that innocence by way of drag queens, transsexuals, and transvestites?" it added.

Values Change

"No, it’s not all politics. But many American families are now seeing the Walt Disney Company as being hostile to their values," PJ Media noted.

"And they’re letting the company know this by staying away from their properties and refusing to attend their 'family films' that have been the mainstay of the company’s image for 100 years," it continued.

Economic issues are certainly a factor, with inflation hitting families in numerous ways that make Disney trips more difficult than in the past. But that hasn't stopped Americans from traveling at levels higher than before the pandemic.

Other theme parks, such as family-friendly Dollywood in Tennessee, continue to expand and grow, too. There's something more than money involved.

Disney may finally be reaping the consequences of its decisions when it comes to a go woke, go broke approach that will need a quick change to avoid future damage to the once-great company.
