I was recently thinking...
We have two camps (generally speaking). One that would like that Disneyland never changed, or that only additions / upgrades were made.
The other one would like to see Disneyland evolve into something greater, bigger and better.
I'd say I fall into the former camp, although stuff like Indy makes me think twice about it.
But I fear that with Walt's passing, the accountants and marketing people taking their place have been harming DL with sub-par attractions, trying hard to please stockholders while ignoring the public.
That, and somehow I feel the really creative people left the company a long time ago. Mercifully, Lasseter seems to be doing some great things. We'll see.
Then again, DL is a classic. A gem that has no equal in the theme park business. How much longer can it stand marketing people and accountants draining the last blood out of its proverbial veins?
Look at the CMs. How badly they are paid, how they seem to be mistreated, and the personnel rotation numbers. Where's the charm in a place where people are paid less than in your usual fast food restaurant?
I know this is a reflection of the times we are living in. Maybe things will change for the better soon. Maybe not.
So, here's my question.
Would you be happy to see DL stay as a museum, in a semi-static state, where major changes were few and far between, but you could count on a friendly atmosphere, top notch rides, and Walt Disney's general vision for DL?
