This is a really important, key observation, that unfortunately, a lot of Disney fans completely overlook.
In my opinion, I've already seen way too much commentary along the lines of "Why did they spend $4 billion on this, but instead of invest it in the parks", "If they can afford this, why are ticket prices going up", etc. A few years ago with the purchase of Marvel, there was a lot of the same (rather naive) grumbling.
