The more people they back in the more credit they can bring to attracting guest and venders.

The jump in price has nothing to do with crowd control. The $10 price jump every years is to cover the slow rental increase but I bet that about 70% of that price increase is going straight to their pockets.
Well in the end it's demand of the product. If people are willing to pay that much for it and still go, Fan Expo unfortunately has every right to do it. It's a for profit con.

Last year I found there was LESS crowding issue because of the extended days. People didn't feel they needed to be there every hours of the day.
