Robert - This topic has reminded of something I've been meaning to bring up for a while. I've been reading your website and visiting daily for a few years now. I don't comment too often but to read most of the comments. I use Yahoo as my home page and the most recent posts to Theme Park Insider are previewed on the Yahoo page before clicking through to the site. A tiny portion (about 1"X1") of the picture associated with the post is shown in the preview. I look forward to new posts so I can try to guess what that little picture, which is only a small part of the whole photo, is.
How about a regular post that is a photo or photos (really a portion of a photo) where we are to guess what it is. I'm sure with the library of photos you could make this pretty easy to really hard? Just a thought. I know you're busy and this is strictly for fun and doesn't add any educational value for the readers, but I think it would be fun none the less to try to figure out what the photos were.
I went universal until the castle. When I think of walking to both parks, universal popped into my head. I would be interested to see if there was a regional breakdown with the west coast going dlr and the east coast going uso.
Btw, dlp is also in this description (except movie theater)
As much as I love Walt Disney World, it's just too spread out for my tastes. I'm a city guy; I like to be able to be in one place and walk around, exploring without having to get into the car.
Don't get me wrong; I love the outdoors and the wilderness, too. What I don't like is the in between: suburban and exurban sprawl, where you've got to get on the highway and drive five miles to the grocery store, then another five miles to the school, etc.
For a place that was supposed to be a prototype community of tomorrow, the Walt Disney World Resort embodies the worst of 20th Century, car-centric, suburban sprawl, with far-flung attractions surrounded by their own immense parking lots. I much prefer the walkability of the Universal Orlando and Disneyland Resorts.
I will admit, I was also thinking, "Duh! It's Universal Orlando!" but I worked there for years so I was amazed and delighted to get to the bottom and realize the true answer.
Very interesting insight.
Now what do I win?
