But, aside from the biases, that doesn't mean that the ideas that went into DCA were flawed or lacking quality. I'm sure you think so, and I'm sure that all the old Imagineers that got all huffy after being rejected think so too. But then there are still 6 million people a year going to DCA and it's still on the top ten of US parks. Obviously all those flawed concepts are appealing to someone.
All those Imagineers hate to admit that the park is still drawing people with all those half brained ideas. When it comes down to it, they can't see past their own egos.
I agree. Conformity is not a good thing, and Disney needs to break free from the ideas of the past by putting an end to the idea that every Disney park needs to look and feel like Disneyland.And, the internal culture of toxic politics and oppressive conformity fostered under Eisner has to change in order for Disney to succeed in the future.
The Imagineers of the past need to give way to a new generation that could actually build a new park, and not rely so much on what was done in the past.
