Walt's foresight for the Florida resort resulted in massive tracts of undeveloped 'visual perimeter' land,
....which the Disney company itself is slowly destroying by building up WDW with hotel after hotel after hotel after trailer park hotels after uneeded Four Seasons hotel after cheesy "Value" resort hotel, after hotel after hotel after Disney's "Wide Waste of Space" after hotel after hotel ad nauseum....
I don't hate or love the idea of a super expensive, low capacity park. It could be extremely well done, or it could be poorly done.
I think Dusty is really on to something though. If for some reason you don't like rides with big drops and refuse to ride any of the roller coasters at DL plus Splash Mountain, you could still have a great day at the parks with the other 60+ attractions. On the other hand, if you go to a 'boutique' park with 5 rides and you don't like two of them, well, you're a little out of luck. That's one worry, but again this park is several years away so I'll reserve judgment until there are more details.
I wish there had been more in the article about the boat ride in the lagoon. I always thought a ride could start in the lagoon and float into a show building somewhere, but I guess we'll see. It'll be nice to have some motion in the lagoon, but if it's just a trip around the perimeter of the puddle then it's not going to be a popular ride.

This is a great quote, it's really rare in my experience for bloggers and other people who write online to be able to take criticism at all, much less this elegantly. Bravo!
I enjoyed reading how the Red Hot Chili Peppers where worried about losing their "street cred". Oh please, they lost that when they voiced themselves on "The Simpsons" back in 1993 on the episode "Krusty gets Kancelled".
They're not excatly the hip and cutting edge band they once were...lighten up already.
Looking forward to the improvements to Grizzly River Run. No news on the addition of a Grizzly River Railroad? My kids got excited when I told them that the old mine train through Nature's Wonderland might come back.
