Question: Where does Walt Disney World miss the mark, and where does it hit a bullseye? I'm talking about the layout of Walt Disney World.
I'm talking about the layout of the parks. But also the hotels and other amenities. And their locations. And the distances between them, the choices made to put things where they are.
Because in my view certain aspects: The Magic Kingdom behind Seven Seas Lagoon, it's utiladors beneath the park and so forth, are a success. But it's sort of smashed into the corner, making development around the park impossible.
Would DisneyWorld have been better if the resort hotels were natural extensions of the park's lands, with for example: a WILDERNESS LODGE adjacent to Frontierland, or The Grand Floridian in front of the main gate, like Paris' Disneyland Hotel?
Because on the one hand, it seems like Walt Disney World was master planned, and on the other, it seems like they developed the property rather haphazardly, dropping hotels all around without really tying their themes into the parks nearby.
What works, what doesn't? And what would you do differently if you could pick everything up and put it back down on the ground again?
