Hey flyerjab,Actually, I think that you are the type of poster that this board relishes and appreciates. These forums are filled with diehard Disney fans that like how the parks were approached in the past. I think it is a great forum for longtime fans to reminisce and speak to how things used to be.
It is ironic to me that you say this as I actually have also been contemplating leaving this forum. I am much newer to WDW (only the last decade) and have found my opinions to be...less popular than most others here. I am excited for what is coming and love finding out about things here well in advance of when they actually happen. That being said, the news from the last D23 and Destination D events have been roundly panned here. I am really in the minority at times from an opinion standpoint. As I like to also think of myself as a think for yourselfer, I might just be posting much less on here. I’ll always be checking in though. The best Disney news on the web has always been wdwmagic!
come try the trip report and trip planning forums. I find that the folks there are just much happier. We are a lot "newer" for lack of a better word to the parks so you don't have as much "living in the past" Disney and comparing every single thing to how it was back in the day. We have been accused of just "accepting" what ever Disney offers but that's cool, we don't mind. It's just a different vibe. here folks will post what they hated about their vacation (dirty trash cans, surely cm's, missing light bulbs on a ride) there folks will post what they loved about their vacations
I am NOT saying one is better than the other or any forum is right or wrong, just two different ways of looking at the vacations and wdw.
