There are a multitude of ways to tour WDW, from mad-dash, rope-drop, 14hr park day commandos to the sit by the pool for the day and maybe visit a park for a ride or two, plus everything in between. A flat statement saying "DDP is bad" is patently false, since it's only bad for those situations where it doesn't fit. Much the same is said for "DDP rocks!" as there are many cases where it does not rock.
This is pretty much why I don't bother with the debate, as both sides are right and both sides are wrong .
As far as the article... my problem with it is that he's doing a huge disservice to his readers, and from reading the first comment, he knows it. He knows that there are cases where it works, he just chooses to ignore those as it takes away from his "edgy" anti-Disney slant. His role as an author for a travel guide company is to guide his patrons into making the correct decision for their trips, but in this aspect, he's failing miserably (and the cynic inside me tells me, intentionally, to dive up hits to drive up ad revenue and exposure...after all, WE are all sitting here for over a week discussing it, aren't we?). Overall, it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth and making me hesitate before I use their service for any (non-Disney) travel plans.
