Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the past month, you have probably noticed that in Orlando, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter has opened in Universal Islands of Adventure in Universal Orlando, trumping anything Disney has done in a while. The last things I can recall on this level of impressiveness are Expedition Everest and Indiana Jones (DLR). The sad thing is, Imagineers can beat this. They have proven to be the pioneers for new technology over the years, all starting with the Matterhorn, which broke ground for roller coaster technology today. But why can't the imagineers bring out a the HUrricane of immersiveness and magic that they have proven to be able to do over the years? Why must you (im a disneylander)guys be stuck with a bunch of meet and greets and a clone of something else?
I believe (as does everybody else) , that TDO is to blame. TDO is the perfect example of what Disney SHOULDN'T be. All about money. Disney was at its finest when money was not an issue. When Disney was a company known for creating magical moments and making people marvel at the technology they create, it was amazing. But now, it has proven to just be another company. Its all about the green for them, and for TDO, its all about saving the green. TDO is apparently too..hmmm how do i put this nicely? Too IGNORANTLY, REDUNDANTLY, STUPID!!!! They need to realize that when you spend enough money in something amazing, it all comes back to them. they just need to take 1 big risk, and then when they see how their investment comes back to them, they (TDO and the Corporate part of Disney that handles all the money) will probably (hopefully)be throwing money at the imagineers to come up with new, innovative, E-Tickets. And when this happens, the Imagineers can do what they do best. let their imaginations run wild. Create something the likes of which has not only never been seen before, and that thought to be impossible.
ok that last part was a little dreaming, but I can dream right?
Al reported that TDA told the imagineers to come up with 2 new E-Tickets. Whether this happens or not, it doesn't matter. TDA is also about money, but by this, you can tell its not as drastic as in TDO. they are handing over their money at Disneyland, which is awesome. But where it really needs to be is in Orlando. What does Disneynland have to compete with? Knott's? Cedar fair took care of that. Legoland? im laughing as I type. Universal? all there is to compete against is the new Transformers ride, but RSR racers will take care of that.
Disney, please realize that if you continue like this, your not gonna be the head honchos in the theme park industry. Universal has proven that they have what it takes. Imagineers, you have what it takes to beat Wizarding World. I know it. We (The Disney Fans) know it. you can do something that will be 5 steps ahead of Universal. All you need is that creative spark. TDO, stop being so cheap. DO invest in Disney World. DO something. But DON'T think that your fantasyland expansion will beat Universal. Because that, is just Wishful Thinking.
