I have a question for you, though, about a trend in imagineering that I find discouraging, and that the more sycophantic podcasts don't address. I am excited about the new Star Wars land in DHS, but was somewhat crestfallen to read that the main attractions will be simulators, as will at least one in Avatar land. While I readily admit I am a motion-sickness sufferer and I know this fuels my opinion somewhat, I am worried that imagineering is losing it's magic as a profession by showing us movies while bouncing us around in a dark box. I think it's lazy. I know it is cheaper to design, build, and maintain than say, bringing Tony Baxter's Mary Poppins design to life. But it's disappointing. What are your thoughts? No one seems to be blogging or podcasting about it. Should I be worried?
