I'm not sure what to think, Brian. As an amusement park enthusiast, a trip to Orlando has no bearing whatsoever on how many times I visit my local parks, so perhaps I'm not qualified to answer that question based upon this being a hobby of mine. However, I can relate this to other things. I have always wanted to rent a Waverunner and go parasailing while vacationing in Wildwood every summer, yet after having done both on other vacations that cost me a hell of a lot more money, I have since decided to skip on both here in NJ. I'm not sure if it's exactly the same, but I know that things that cost me time, money and effort elsewhere influenced another decision of mine.

With the exception of the Disneyland/Magic Kingdom parks that lack genuine thrill rides, Disney parks have all bases covered.
And this may just be a matter of perspective. While MK may certainly lack (and really, with attendance like that, why should they care?) DL does have Indy and Space Mountain. Of course, compared to X, Space Mountain is a weenie ride, but I'd suspect that for much of the GP, a major coaster is a major coaster. They get lumped together although "Does it go upside down?" seems to be a pretty prominent decider for who's willing to ride and who isn't.
Sorry, I'm rambling. In other words, the "thrill" rides at your typical Disney park may be more similar to the thrill rides at SFMM to the GP than to enthusiasts who obviously know better.
Although water conservation *might* have something to do with it, I think this landscaping is fairly drought tolerant.
