    Yes, but it did give us great TV shows like MASH, All in the Family, Welcome Back kotter, Barney miller, and Sandford and Son. So it wasn't alll bad. Plus you got great rides like Thunder Mountain and Space Mountain.

    So true. Some of Lennon's best work. It was also when McCartney did all his stuff with Wings.

    Let's not be too smug here in the 2010's, have you seen the Missoni Collection at Target? It's selling out all over.

    Art, design, and music from the 1970's are amazing in how consistently bad they all were. I think Walt Disney World suffers from the tastes of the time, too. The drugs must have affected everyone's judgment.

    That being said, some aspects of the hotel as it looked in the 1970's appeal to me.

    Knowing that Lennon released Imagine and Instant Karma and McCartney had Maybe I'm Amazed and Band on the Run during that time, I don't see how someone can make that statement.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to defend the 70's. When I was a kid in the 60's, that meant dressing alike, same hair styles, and crappy music. In other words, don't stick out by expressing yourself.

    Now fast forward to late 60's early 70's and we now have anything goes! Just look at the patterns and vivid colors of the hotel. Color was IN! People were allowed to be and do whatever they wanted. Life was now an adventure! Music represented our new culture where it was hip to be different. Clothes reflected our different personalities and it was good that manufacturers got on board and offered new styles with no boundaries.

    And if it wasn't for the 70's pushing the envelope of creativity and self expression, we would be a nation of sheep. Drab unimaginative sheep! Nope, the 70's were not baaaaaad.
