and besides, if they did not use money on MB's that does not mean that they would try to fix that ol'busted show anyway, or even build another ride with it... don't understand people and the fixation with how much is spent on infrastructure. you most likely would not be saying anything since disney does not release numbers on things like computer upgrades. how much did they spend on asphalt sealer last year? how much on replacement towels that people steal? how much on the darn electric bill?

Just for perspective, the Walt Disney Company's most valued asset is ESPN, with it driving 42% of their operating income. The parks may make money, but they can't make anything near what cable makes.

I know that, but what I was saying was that it flipped back and forth between DEP and Spectro. One would run for a year or two while the other was being refurbed, then switch.

Aren't the photos of the floats being demolished in this thread? They were photographed, so they probably won't be coming back unless they decide to build exact replicas for some reason.
