Hopefully, the financial side of Disney will better and hopefully we will see some new E-ticket rides soon. Look at Disney Sea, when they have the money, they can still make wonderful rides/parks :)
Once again, I'm all for that Villains park for us big kids. :-)

I'm following the progress of Mission:Space, a ride that's been under development/construction for about 10 years now. It has even been daleyed to 2003. Probably money problems. ;)
