I love what you wrote Trevor! Funny thing is they havent forgotten any of that...you just have to go to Japan and visit TDS to get it!
And to be honest, I never even HEARD of Meg Croften, so no opinions on her whatsoever! But I agree, as far as DLR is concerned, there is a HUGE upswing in the quality department compared to 10 years ago!
So I dont know what will change, if anything, but I do hope that they realize that people DO notice when things are good like they are with DLR and that should be the aim. I have not been to WDW in 8 years now, another reason why I cant comment on this thread, but I know the last few years havent been that great just based on what I been reading.
But one thing I do know is this stuff goes in cycles, like most things in life. These parks will have their good times and their bad, all depending on leadership, the economy, audience trends, etc. There is probably why after 60 years a Disney park has never closed, because just when they are screwing it up to the point people notice, they figure out how to get it on track again. So we'll just have to see. I'm pretty happy with things for the most part now and thats all I can base it on. If things really change for the worse, then I have LOTS of other places I can spend my time in worldwide and do!
But I'm a happy camper now and hope to stay that way for a long time!
