I went to Universal from my resort once. It was a long trip and a little expensive ride. The park tickets were expensive too. $300.00 (for both parks) for 2 people one day and they closed a 7:00 PM. For those who complain that WDW is expensive. I think that WDW is so much better it is...
It is all the little "extras" that got me hooked on WDW vacations. Like the entertainment. I look forward to seeing the Citizens of Hollywood, 4 for a Dollar (really miss them. I haven't been in that theater since), and the street entertainers of EPCOT (I actually got to be King Arthur once)...
I never heard about the plane propeller but I do remember the truck stunt going wrong and I believe someone was killed.
However, I would think that the propellers are not real and made from something that is soft and pliable in case an accident did occur.
I voted no. I haven't been to WDW since it opened but a vacation is supposed to be relaxing. One of the reasons we go to WDW is the "Once I board the plane I am taken care of" that Disney provides. I don't want any stress on my vacation.
