Yes, they are very protective of the so-called "magic", hence the NO PHOTO rule when deviating thru the backstage areas of the park. Yet they are hipocrits at WDW since they charge a bundle of $$ on backstage tours of the property that kill the "magic" quite effectively. Nothing is sacred anymore.
Well, there are people like me who would pay the set prrice and more to see those areas.

You know... I don't think they were sending people backstage behind Main Street (and I hate*hate*hate it when they do that.)
Y'know, while I agree with you in theory, in practice a full house log jam of people can be pretty frustrating. On my last visit, I watched the fireworks from the bridge to Tomorrowland. After the show, getting from there, across the hub, and to the Coke Corner area took a full FORTY FIVE MINUTES! It was the most incredible gridlock I've ever seen. There were bodies as far as the eye could see, and for 5 or 6 minutes at a time none of them were moving even a baby step! This was a night when they should have opened the backstage route, but they were caught by surprise with the large crowds.
