Now they will have to finish Pop.
Yuck, do they have too?
another big yawn!
Oh goody, even more inadequately supervised teens! It'll be like Cheer and Pop Warner weeks on steroids!
1) It makes too much financial sense.
2) They get a partner to build the building, so little cost to WDW.
3) They they REQUIRE participants to stay on-site. *
4) It is BIG, BIG BUCKS.
* As an example, the contract with Pop Warner specifies that all contestants must stay on site, or they cannot participate. Other contests have the same requirements. (Cheerleaders do not have this contract clause, and can stay off-site if they wish.) That a huge revenue pool for WDW.
The best part is that we all know that this money that they will be making hand over fist on this deal(according to you) will be poured right back into the parks...and not used to prop up some crappy failing unit of the Disney media "empire". Gosh I can't wait for the Haunted Mansion II direct to DVD release.
Seriously, It will be twice the movie Norbit is. Eddie Murphy will be sure to get the Oscar for it.
I thought I remembered reading something a few months ago about how Disney was losing some of these comps, because of cost.
How does this "have to stay on site" work?
Do the various groups all get a "convention rate" or do individual families with kids participating have to book resorts with everyone else with a limited number of rooms for each kind of package or using code rates subject to availability?

Man, I'm with you on that!
A 70,000 square foot arena for the Wide World of Sports complex that no one goes to but nothing for popular EPCOT's 25th? That's not right to me.
