Bruce: I'm sure after my bf mentioned this he had wished that he'd kept his mouth shut, because I immediately started thinking out loud for ten minutes, and it sounded a lot like what you said. basically it would be silly to buy SFMM and try to market it to people wanting to visit the DLR and be immersed in disney magic, because not only do you have to stray from the resort, but you have to stray FAR from the resort. but if there was a way to attract a different crowd, i.e. a comic book fan crowd, they could potentially build an entire new resort.
but there's one thing I'm still hung up on, and that's what they would do with all the current rides. how lame to just take all of the already built roller coasters, rename them and slap a little more theming on. yet what are the other options? bulldozing it and starting from scratch? not only would that be a huge waste of money but like others said on this thread, if they want to start from scratch they already have the space to do it, and if they wanted a new location they could find a hell of a lot better place than the side of that mountain.
