UPDATE: Click here for the latest 2013 theme park attendance figures!

Every June, the theme park executives pace up and down to see what they already know about their own gate attendance figures from the year before!  What they don’t know for certain are the attendance figures for their local rivals!

In an industry that’s much like any other, every dollar counts.  Orlando has a fairly unique challenge however, those airplanes have a limited supply of dollars in those passenger wallets, and it’s the job of every park exec to make sure it reaches their bottom line!
