they're really going to have to stretch to come up with good reasons ... and you'll be lucky if you get to ride 6 or 8 rides due to the length of lines.

You gave the reason right there. People with single day tickets would benefit from the ability to reserve/schedule ride times to maximize their time in the park.

What's more, destruction of hard drives means we have to buy new ones, which is going to cost us a lot of money, particular with prices being so high.

It should have been part of the contract negotiations that the cost of the HDDs is paid for by the government. If it wasn't your company should still have padded their fee to include this cost. If it wasn't, someone should be fired. You can then destroy the drives as required by the contract and use the salary savings to pay for new drives.

The next logical step is a higher frame rate. 24FPS for movies is way too slow. ... Movies should be at least 48FPS, and maybe 72FPS.

The Hobbit is being "filmed" at 48fps. http://insidemovies.ew.com/2011/04/12/the-hobbit-48-frames-peter-jackson/
