    If Eisner was smart during the early 2000's he should of delayed DCA for a year or 2?

    People keep saying DCA was rushed and pretty cheap. If Eisner was smart during the construction of DCA he would of delayed it for a year or 2 so they could finish all the rides and scenery to the park instead of putting all the cheap scenery and a few rides in the park. But he didn't and thought DCA would make a profit since it's next to Disneyland? As a result it didn't turn out so good. Do you think Eisner should of DCA for an extra year or 2 or no?

    He should of. But unfortunately it's not that easy.

    Meh, the flaws were in the design and in the budget. They could have built the same park two years later or in a longer period of time, and it still would have been what it is - a park that's not bad, but certainly nowhere near the quality of Disneyland.

    Eisner was not smart in the early 2000's, he had long since lost his direction, since the death of Frank Wells

    Yeah - you used Eisner and Smart together. Eisner lost his brain when Wells passed on...

    the project was delayed ten years and just got worse. Delaying the project would not have increased DCA's budget instead it would had stayed the same and the cost of building it would had risen. Not only that but a two year delay would had probably killed the project completely for several more years since the tourism concerns of 2001 would had pushed the project back even further.

    The "rides" and "scenery" were completed. Eisner and Pressler thought that crowds would be packing DCA on a regular basis. They had the park running for special events at least a month or two before it opened. The critical errors in the DCA debacle are the fault of Eisner and Pressler, their "run on the cheap mentality" their "if it's good enough for 6 Flags" philosophy. DCA wasn't rushed in opening. The 2nd park for the DL resort took over 45 years to build.
