9. On the other threads you will hear folks who drink too much Disney kool-aid talk about Magic. Magic is just a well executed customer service strategy; however, they execute that strategy really well. In my - limited - experience the difference is noticeable.
Just curious, what didn't the staff do to carry it through? They usually call people muggles and such.

Also, I have to disagree a bit about the magic part. I think it is as much about atmosphere as it is about customer service. The most truly magical part of Disney (in my opinion), is Main Street in MK. The smells, the music, the scenery... it's just incredible. I also think that "magic" has a strong link to nostalgia. IOA/USF don't have that gooey homey nostalgic feel Disney manages to capture; Uni's atmosphere feels more energized and adventurous to me.
