In some cases, I agree that theatricality and showmanship have suffered. In other cases, I disagree. The company's recent theme park offerings have been inconsistent -- sometimes great, sometimes good, sometimes just bad. I believe that they have the resources to be more consistent, at the very least by not handicapping the Imagineers with arbitrary budget cuts.
But inconsistency does not equal lousy. It does mean we get a mixed bag. Can the company do better? Yes. But does that mean the parks now suck? Hardly.
