Seriously, Carsland and RSR in particular are monster hits and Lasseter fought to keep the budget from getting the axe. Seems like the guy deserves a lot of credit for that, Carsland might be the most popular land in all of DLR. Personally, I hope that another Pixar property is turned into a highly themed land like Carsland, and I thought Brave was pretty good, and though I wasn't in love with the first Monsters Inc. film, the second one looks a lot better.
Midway Mania is a nice ride, don't see it as evidence of a major failure, though more dark ride scenes would be nice.
I think Iger is the most over-rated person working for Disney, a non-creative type at the top of the food chain, though he made the right call with Star Wars.
