This thread is not about the removal of the Rainforest and the American Tribute. It isn't about the letter written by Marty, or the appropriateness of Disney Characters in IASW. This is a simple question.
One thing I enjoy about holiday overlays is that they are not permanent. For a couple months I have Jack in the HM, and Christmas in IASW, then it's back to normal. It provides a break from the norm, and when the old favorite comes back then it is seen in a new light with renewed interest. Thinking about this made me think about the upcoming unveiling of the "Disney" IASW. Per Al it is to be unveiled after the Holiday is over. Personally I wish it was part of the Holiday overlay. Literally part of it. I would love to see the characters be brought out on a temporary basis, specifically for the holiday season.
This would do several things. For those who wanted IASW minus the characters, it would give them the old IASW back (in a manner of speaking... miss the Rainforest). For those wanting the characters, it would allow the characters to be seen on a limited basis. Most important for those in TDA who feel the need to market Disney characters, it would be marketing them at the most opportune time to the largest audience. It would market the characters, around the holiday, to the holiday crowd who would likely be seeking souvenirs as presents!
So I pose this question to all of you. Would this be a middle ground? Would it be better if the characters were seen on a temporary basis, allowing for the best of both worlds? Hopefully the posts and opinions will focus on this, as there are plenty of other threads devoted to the tangents listed above.
