    How would Walt feel if he saw the park today?

    Sometimes when I stroll around Disneyland admiring the little details, I happen to spot the not so admirable details, such as chipped paint, burnt out bulbs, rotting wood (e.g. the Mark Twain) and I'm always reminded that went Walt was walking around the part he'd make sure everything was painted, all burnt out bulbs would be replaced right away..and there's no way he'd let anything go into decay!Granted the park has been put into better shape for the 50th but these are things that should be enforced every single day!

    I mean this was a man that would spend that extra dollar to make something happen, like he put a second mortgage on his house and did all sorts of crazy financial moves to make Disneyland happen...and he built the WHOLE place in a YEAR..now attractions take years with mediocre entertainment (Pooh ride) So now I ask, what do you people think Walt would do/say about his beloved park? I'd think the pooh is gonna fly!

    That is a tough one. The only one who really knows is Walt.

    He probably wouldn't be too pleased about the secret bathroom.

    Re: How would Walt feel if he saw the park today?

    I think he'd be happy that imagination is still alive, and that there are things moving forward in the park. I also think he'd be sad if he saw the chipped paint, etc. that was mentioned.

    Oh yea, not to mention the removal of the skyway that was one of his best ideas for the park...

    Re: How would Walt feel if he saw the park today?

    I've always wondered what Walt would have thought about all of this speculation over what he would have thought...

    What?

    I thought it was..I mean it takes you from when end of the park to the other, saving you walking time, it gives you a great view, it went THROUGH the matterhorn mountain an innovative idea Walt came up with which was received with much shock and skeptism, and during fireworks shows, you got a view like no other..i heard this one story of a guy proposing to his girl in the skyway cabin AS the fireworks were going off..i would LOVE to perform a proposal like that!

    Re: How would Walt feel if he saw the park today?

    I think he'd either hate Heely's or really love them and have a pair for himself..........

    Really though, I think the park would be a lot different if Walt were still alive.

    I live 2 miles away from Disneyland if Walt would've built it at Riverside and Buena Vista.

    Re: How would Walt feel if he saw the park today?

    Ah yes, the old "WWWD(OT)" - What Would Walt Do (Or Think)...

    Here's a theory that I don't often see:

    Maybe he wouldn't really care that much about the park(s). In the same way that he lost interest in animated films while building Disneyland, many reports have stated that toward the end of his life he was losing interest in DL as he became more consumed with his (original vision for) EPCOT.

    When discussing his Project X (aka WDW), sure he was gonna have a theme park just like DL, but what he was really excited about was his experimental city.

    So maybe he wouldn't be overly concerned with his theme park(s). He mighta been too busy building cities.

    Re: How would Walt feel if he saw the park today?

    Being 106 years old...I'd bet he'd be feeling pretty crappy.



    I think this question comes up a couple times a month here.

    Seriously though...I think the "What would Walt" questions can be valid ones. Though mainly only for "fun" purposes.

    But I think you have to be more specific with the question. I think you need to specify:

    - What would Walt think of "X" today if he were brought back with the same 1966 mindset he had as when he died?

    Or

    - What would Walt think of "X" today if he had lived and his perspectives and opinions would have likely changed over the years just like most people's do?

    On some basic issues, such as letting the Park get run down and dirty...I don't personally think there's any debate or question at all: He wouldn't like it.
