    Ya, but you can see how many even on the hotel strip, on Disney Property are struggling to stay afloat.
    Thinking if they still have not sold out a chunk of DVC's at several locations, they might want to ratchet back a bit. The only one I've agreed with lately was finishing Pop Phase 2 and making it for larger families, it was needed.

    Any how, the monorail is closed at the moment for its daily shut down. Ya, this works, Noon on a Monday.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Yes, I will likely never stay there, but the Art Of Animation Resort was most definitely a great decision. On that we definitely agree.

    Right now the lines with the monorail down, even with the buses running is out to the trams, crazy.

    Nope, I'm not staying at Animation either, not my kinda thing, neither is the Royal Rooms at POR and I love the Mansion side, just over the top and not at all peaceful.

    Must look like it did on Saturday mornings when people actually bought their tickets at the windows.

    At some point, whether it is on or off property, the hotel industry is going to reach the point of saturation. I know Disney would prefer guests to stay on-property, mainly because they realize that, with the free bus, fewer guests rent cars and will therefore more likely spend more money with the Disney company.

    As for DVC, Hilon Head was a disaster. Bay Lake did not sell out as quickly as they anticipated. I realize that there is only so much you can do with that view, but there were times when I was told that everything else was booked but they could offer me a parking lot view and I turned it down. Aulani was clearly meant to be used in tandum with Disneyland. But unless you're doing both CA and HI, it's pretty much a Hawaiian resort that happens to be run by Disney. Same reason HH suffered. If you WANT Disney, GO to Disney. Not to Virginia.

    you are right... i never understood the point of Hilton Head and even Vero Beach for that matter... Aulani might make a little sense to me at least as i know what I'm getting if i ever decide to go to Hawaii... i know Disney service and Disney flair... but i wouldn't wanna spend extra to stay in Hilton Head... a Holiday Inn would be sufficient...

    Yep you are right. I'm interested to see how Hawaii pans out. Middle of no where and not a whole lot to do at the resort. If you are into sitting on a beach and just chill'n maybe. But Lordie it is so much more expensive than the most upscale resorts in the heart of it all. Hilton a bust and Vero couldn't even be completed. Disney has had their successes and mega failures in their DVC choices. Bay Lake should have been perfect yet they really made some mega mistakes in the units. Oy.

    Sounds like there are a bunch of "right" people 'round here. If we're all so correct, maybe Disney should be calling on us before they make any more bone headed business decisions.

    And Dr. Samuel Johnson's right about Olsen Johnson being right.

    Re: Is it time for Disney to Bite the Bullet?

    Thank you, Joe. Was starting to feel a bit lonely here. Glad someone else gets quality humor when they read it. Good choice - one of my favorite lines from the film, right along with "... fought Dix."

    Re: Is it time for Disney to Bite the Bullet?

    Still don't get how that movie is a classic.

    In all fairness, I also don't get how Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a classic either. And I love that film. Like most guys my age I can still quote at least 50% of it and likely do no less than once a week.

    We usually quote Blazin' Saddles at least once a month. Usually right before our monthly supervosor's meeting someone, usually me, uses the "save our phoney-baloney jobs" line since our monthly meeting is mostly a "this is how you disappointed us" last month meeting.
