Well there you go, your basing most of your "angst" by what you've read.

How horrible it would be if it stagnated and never changed, attendance would drop and continue to until it was turned into a strip mall.
Comparisons between parks like traumwelt's
Re: Is Walt Disney World Overrated in 2012?
Yes. I think the Magic Kingdom is very, very dumbed down. You really don't see this clearly until you have been to many other Disney Parks (Paris, Hong Kong, Anaheim) and have something to compare it to. I don't go there anymore. I think it has become, well, sort of embarassing (this is coming from a HUGE Disney theme park fan).
PS I am not interested in defending or arguing my viewpoint. I just wanted to respond to the open question. Thank you."
drive me nuts! While they both have the "Disney" name they are very much different. Just due to locations they MUST be different. I'll never go over seas to any other park, and the odds are not very good that I'll ever make it to Disney Land even. I have no trouble with that. WDW itches that itch for me very well, and as long as they do I'll keep coming back. I find something new and different every time I go.
