I'm very anxious to see what Matt Ouimet's first 'original' mark on DLR will be. Matt has been (rightfully) praised for preparing DL for it's 50th and getting some momentum built for the future. So far, however, I would argue that all the work has been to 'clean up' the slide from the Pressler/Harriss era. (Please don't flame me for any mis-spellings.)
First up was the repainting and refurb of a park gone darkly neglected in this area. We all remember Al's postings of dinged up garbage cans, right? Space Mountain refurb was in the works, if not accelrated. Buzz? On the drawing boards, and even then to correct a 'Ooops' with the TL 98. Even the Finding Nemo redo of the subs goes to correct a transgression by the recent managment team.
Over at DCA? Any work there goes towards correcting the mistakes and miscalculations made when that park was conceived and birthed.
I know that when you want to build something, you have to start with a strong foundation. So far, I see MO building a solid foundation, clearing out the wreckage that was made before him and starting back with what made DL strong in the first place. Which brings me back to my original statement: 'I'm very anxious to see what Matt Ouimet's first 'original' mark on DLR will be.'
