True, so at least I feel good knowing that :)

The only two places I will ever need to be are Manhattan and Disney World.

Both, outside companies selling their food in the parks has been there since the start and saying that magic phrase seems to shut down any arguments against change with the fans. :D

I don't think the "Commercialization of the parks" is something to really be worried about- as far as I can remember and clearly beyond that the parks have always been super commercialized. Ever listen to the old CoP? "Well, thank the Heavens for those good people at GE!!! I can't live without my General Electric... and the General Electric....oh and did I tell you about my General Electric...?" And ironically one of my fave attractions as a kid was Delta's Dreamflight...which was a full ad for Delta.

There are logos emblazoned on every attraction and most restaurants. As long as they don't take a step back with the whole attraction being a total promo for something....
