Building a fith gate would be as smart as America building new roads right next to the rotting crumbly ones they have now instead of fixing them. You want to doom DHS and Animal Kingdom? Build a fith gate. It's not going to happen. Not even the dunderheads in TDO would be dumb enough to think that they actually need a 5th gate (probably only because they don't actually want to spend any money).
Monorail plans have been "on the drawing board" since WDW was first being developed. It hasn't happened yet, it's not gonna happen ever IMO. Too expensive, unless government regulations make it more financially beneficial to take the buses off the streets.
Do I see the dunderheads at TDO building more Resorts? Yep most definetely because even if attendance is down they still think that hotels are a better investment than the parks. Can someone please tell them the reason that DLP failed?
