Marty Sklar, a Disney employee since the 1950's and now the international ambassador for Walt Disney Imagineering, once said, "We're in the business of telling great stories, and great stories never grow old."
For Disney, it has always been about building experiences, not rides. Bob Rogers obviously agrees. And, FWIW, so do I.
It is good to hear someone talk about narrative, immersion, and theme. Without those ingredients, a ride is just a ride.
And I like how every thing has a story even though it might not be told to the public like the garbage cans, drinking fountains and restrooms!
These are the story's that keep me coming back to this site for the past 5 or 6 years know!
But we're fans, darn it. We want more, better and now! ;-) And we get really anxious at the thought we might not get it.
Still, I think just about every designer in the industry would prefer us to be anxious about getting more and better attractions than to see us apathetic and happy with whatever we got. Businesses with customers like that don't stay in business long.
(And to clarify, just in case anyone didn't see it as a metaphor: no free pretzels at the Heineken show. Sorry to disappoint anyone looking forward to that....)
