I was perusing the new "Disney War" book in my local bookshop and got the impression from what little i read that it takes liberties to make it's points. Don't believe everything you read friends.
i.e. Euro Disney- He makes the point they spent too much on the park. I won't disagree. But the reference he makes ot the Castle having to be of "real pink stone" instead of the "fiberglas one in Florida" is not really accurate. The Castle at EDL had no restaurant or apartment, was smaller in size and the dragon was a separate attraction. I was told in overall cost as it was mostly sculpted plaster and fiberglas, was less to build than the WDW one. FYI- EDL at it's opening had the lowest "cost per guest carried" of any MK meaing the overall cost of the rides against how many guests could enjoy them was lowest.
This book, while being accurate in a broad sense seems to me to be off the mark in the details and in my opinion (as an anonomous disneyphile) to be inaccurate as to who did what at the executive level. Blame is tossed like a sald here and the names seem to be bantied about on heresay. Reader beware.
