    I believe that erosion has already happened to some extent ... it's why some 'fans' vehemently argue that standards weren't higher and the park wasn't better a decade or two or three ago than it is now.

    It's the WalMarting effect.

    People accept less and think they're getting more.

    While adding stars and prettying up Space Mountain is certainly welcome and needed rehab, this does nothing to combat the Harry Potter expansion in Universal.

    If the Disney folks who oversee WDW actually believe that this will be their main weapon, then they have clearly lost their brains.

    Actually, believe it or not, I synced the old Dick Dale soundtrack that use to be in DL's SM, and it worked perfectly. Everything was on sync. I'll post a video to prove this later.

    Actually, this was confirmed to be ONE of the main weapons towards the Universal HP add on. Again, this is NOT THE MAIN weapon, but one of many as the article states.

    I think it will be a welcome addition, but WDW will always draw crowds and so will universal as most families incorporate both parks when on vacation.

    Yeah ... but what bothers me is their habit of 'borrowing' rumors/facts from other sites, rejiggering it a bit and calling it news.

    I agree, getting rumors from the horse's mouth is much better and credible.
