This story broke last week and quickly raced through the Walt Disney World fan community with nearly universal acceptance. I spent some time, over the weekend, and I am about to throw some cold water on that acceptance. I don’t think this is a good idea for the Walt Disney World resort. I think it is a case of short-term profit taking over the long-established traditions of the Magic Kingdom. Below I will lay out my case for why I think this is a bad idea.
I returned from Walt Disney World on Sunday and one of the highlights of the trip was my evening at Hollywood Studios. Hollywood Studios is undergoing a massive transformation with addition of Star Wars Land and the expansion Pixar Place. Even with this transformation, there are still enough attractions and events to keep people in the parks all day.
