    Why am I suddenly drooling profusely?

    Better yet, combine with Cousin Orville's idea - LucasFilm-Pixar Studios, a Disney Theme Park.

    Isn't it ironic that the Disney studios have become a facade, a front of a working studio who really doesn't do any filming anymore.

    Irony comes in the part that the gimmick of most attractions at Disney Studios use facades to bring in the viewer into simmulated reality(IE Catastrophe Canyon, the City facades, etc.). Now the Disney Studios try to portray the look of an actual working studio, when they are hardly anymore.

    That's an assumption that's been going on at least as far back as 1995-96.

    I still think Disney will pony up and pay to keep the name.

    They'd be better to spend some money on fixing that place up, starting with removing that hat. Maybe they can ebay it. If John Stamos has any $$$ left after his divorce, I bet he'd be interested.

    I would figure that soon the State of FLA will be changing the Interstate signs and sigsn they own on other roads... (Disney will spend a fortune on their signs... but it aint hard to remove it.. look at river country.. just peel it off overnight... then hope no one wants to go untill a few days later...)

    Disney is responsible for a lot of the I-4 Construction on Disney Property. The whole US 192 & I-4 Intersection should take about 1/3 of the time than say, the new bridges that were built in Lakeland. The reason for this is that Disney requires most construction projects to be completed under a certain time limit. Now, I know some you will say that I don't know what I'm talking about, but when you live near WDW or visit often, you learn to become amazed at how quickly new bridges and roads are built on Disney Property. And when you tie that into the record time on how quickly the place was built, it shows you that your normal state tax funded construction crew works slower than molasses. (No offense if you're a state funded road construction worker) Disney gets things done much more quickly. And all this about the signage changes... it's not as big as everyone thinks. The park's signs are what will take a long time, not the road signs. The road signs property wide can be done in about a week. I remember when they added Blizzard Beach to all the signs. It doesn't take long at all.

    Hmm.... So what you say is that the I-4 construction in lakeland moving faster than in Tampa is due to disney... (I still dont remember a time when I-4 wasn't under construction....)
