    As a Disney Resort fanatic, Eisner is a hero to me. His massive increase in hotel rooms on WDW property during the “Disney Decade” was amazing.

    I’ve also always been amused by the critics of the Graves’ Swan & Dolphin. They are amazing unique structures. A huge improvement over the previously planned “refrigerator boxes” Eisner referred to.

    I especially think the whining about being able to view them from within Epcot is ridiculous. The whole “I felt like I was in France until I saw the Swan or Dolphin argument”. Dumb…….just Dumb.

    Eisner has left a strange legacy behind. Most people dislike what he did and feel that he let the parks wither, which is true. On the other hand, he did open lots of great resorts and restaurants. While I think a more balanced approach would have been better, what he did was not all doom and gloom.

      Anthony, I’m not sure that I would agree that someone who opened half the current parks (HS and AK) “let the parks wither.”
