If Disney ever get serious about a 5th gate, they should just make a 2nd Magic Kingdom park.
The current one is full, but the most popular park. Make a copy over the TTC and put multi storey parking lots with monorail access in.
They could close it in off season (if that ever happens), and...
AKL is a great hotel, has the Disney feel but is very relaxed being a little further away from the hustle and bustle of the parks.
It is a completely different setup being at the Epcot resorts. You are able to walk, get a boat (or Gondola?) to the parks, have shops and restaurants on the...
Nobody has to stay at any of the resorts. If you don"t like the look or the concept, choose one of the many other on site resorts to stay at.
It does feel like Disney is just catching up with 1960s Butlins in the UK ;-)
The strings of lights are one of the best indicators that we are supposed to feel toy sized in the Toy Story lands to my mind. A lot of the other stuff feels like they are giant objects, but the lights are really effective.

A lot of the structures in Pixar place don't look structural. I wonder if they could join enough bits there to build an Als Toy Barn frontage (at an angle across to Joffreys) and have a large merch store using the Pixar Place real estate?
It would bring the entrance to the land forward quite a...
It would be good if the new layout makes it feel like you have arrived at MK at that point, and you are now inside the magic from that point.
Maybe a food outlet with soda, popcorn, cookies etc, a DVC booth ;-), fastpass terminals etc. ?
r.e. bus provision once this is open.
Disney constantly messes with the bus offering, especially for the water parks.
Even if the routes are retained initially, they will be under review once they can see guest demand and judge those feedback forms. Bus returns from Epcot will retain some...
Why not make it completely fair, and start charging $6 for arrival and departure days, when those pesky guests want suitcases moving around if this is designed to cover labor costs?
The current arrangement means I am paying that $6 in a hidden fee every day, even if I don't use Bell Services...
