Disney's theme park boss says further development of their properties will happen around the existing parks. This method of expansion is designed to promote longer stays, use shared resources.

There is NoLimit when it comes to Roller Coasters
It is the logical strategy for Disney, as opposed to developing a bunch of smaller, regional parks throughout the country (as I have heard people suggest before). Anything that Disney does to their existing resorts will only make them more spectacular, drawing in more guests and bringing back older ones for something brand new.
Wont stop me from going to DLR or WDW though!

My family and I are going in October. Probaly going to hit BGT as well. Spend 2 or 3 days at IOA. Does anybody known how many days I should spend at IOA?
At least I dont call a vertical loop a "loopdie-loop"!
RememberIdora: In my opinion, one day is probably enough at IOA to hit all the biggies at least once. If I were you, I would spend the extra day at Sea World of Florida - it's a great park, and for its lack of a ton of coasters, really makes up for it with killer whales, dolphins, and other great wildlife. You could, alternatively, spend one day at IOA and the other at Universal Studios (they do sell combination tickets), but I still favor the change of pace over at Sea World, which is a great park in my opinion.
And yes, Disney has not one, but at least twenty, hotels on their 350+ acre Lake Buena Vista complex. Not to mention a private living community (called "Celebration") which is WELL WORTH a drive through (and it's free!). I think you'll be pleasantly amazed with it.
Busch Gardens Tampa is by ALL means worth the two hour hike to Tampa. Besides being an excellent coaster park, it boasts as being one of the top rated zoos in this country. Make sure the weather is nice when you go - if it isn't, you could spend the whole day in the brewery (which isn't that much fun despite the free beer samples).
And yes, I'll always remember Idora - I grew up 30 minutes from there - the Jack Rabbit was the first "major" coaster I ever rode.
