[QUOTE=WishUponAStar;992379]Even though the OC Register reported that Disney officials declined to release attendance numbers for the first D23 Expo, Bob Iger already declared the event a success!
Disney president calls expo a success, despite lack of numbers - Around Disney - OCRegister.com
What I don’t understand is if Disney wants to increase attendance for these events, & membership to D23, they really should have done it BEFORE children went back to school. I, for one, would have been there in a heartbeat. I actually really WANTED to go but there is no way in heck I could take off of work as a teacher two weeks after the children came back to school. Not to mention all the hardcore adult Disney fans out there that HAVE children and wouldn’t attend an event like this simply because of the timing.
Maybe it would have sold more tickets if the event was held in August or over Labor Day weekend at the latest? I know I would have been there.[/QUOTE]
I completely agree. I mean… aren’t a large majority of Disney fans families with school-age children? That just wasn’t very smart thinking.
