I’m not even talking about Bugs Land, you goof. lol You were talking about DL and how it had to change with the times. Good thing they replaced that old castle and mountain with something more hip and edgy.
LOL if they did that then obviously I would agree with you! C'mon. I didn't say ANY changes. I'm talking about changes that they think will be progress for the park. SWL is that example.
And everything is subjective, right. I will give you a great example and where I argued just like you are now. When IASW decided they wanted to add Disney characters to the ride, this was 10 years ago now (wow). I was livid over the idea! I wrote post after post how it was wrong, it went against what Walt Disney was portraying, Disney was just pushing more IPs, it was sacred, etc, etc, etc. I went on multiple rants about it for about a year lol. Many people agreed with me of course, but others were telling me its not a big deal, its just a way to get kids to identify with the attraction, blah, blah, blah. They honestly sounded like sell outs to me (I never said that though...I didn't want to get banned).
And you know what, they were right! I honestly thought (at the time) there would be so much outrage about it for so long that in time Disney would change it back to normal. It never happened of course and now when I take my kids and nephews they love it! All the old foogey's like me who was yelling and screaming its the end realized it worked because you never hear about it today. Ever. Believe me it was a big deal at the time. But people adapt and people like us here only look at things through a certain prism. I just don't do that anymore and I stopped doing it after that.
Now none of that means EVERYTHING they do is legit. But I now look at these things through my family eyes who don't spend a minute on the internet discussing theme parks. We were at DL for four days a few weeks ago, they loved it as much now as they always have. Not a single complaint about Pixar Pier. We had such a good time we all now have Aps after not having them for six years (since CL opened). But we only go to the park once a year and we live 25 mins away. Theses 'controversies' only live on the internet. My mother has been going to that park since the first year it opened. She loves all the changes. But she also loved DCA when it opened, so not the best judge of character there lol. In other words, I take these things a lot more in stride now. I guess I turned into my mother.
Now that said, if they replace the Castle for Stark Tower, that will probably rile up a few more people than just the internet.
