I don't know if it's just because I'm "old fashioned" but does anyone else think it slightly odd/wrong for there to be a bar and freaking mall right outside Disneyland?
I mean if the stores outside Disneyland, INSIDE DOWNTOWN DISNEY, were disney related I would have no problems, but they are these random surfing and fashion shops that have nothing to do with disney what so ever. And the cafes and such that are there are just as random as the shops. I mean can see how some of them relate to disneyland like the Rainforest Cafe *Jungle Book* but putting in a sports club is ridiculous! I go to Disneyland for DISNEY. If I wanted to watch football, I could have stayed home or watched that in my hotel room. AND if I wanted Lego's or surf items, I would go to the closest shopping mall. It also pisses me off that there is a bar where you can get drunk and waltz right back into Disneyland, ruining the family atmosphere. I guess what bugs me the most is that it seems as though the heads of Disney don't see those passing through the gates of Disneyland as guests or people. They see them as walking money bags. The emphasis of family has almost been wiped clean from the minds of those running the show. It's all about pleasing the stock holders and earning more green fiber. The once Holy Grail of my obsession has begun to rust from corruption of the basic principals that at one time made it stand above all other entertainment companies.*sigh*

::don't get me wrong, I do like some of the things the heads of disney have done, but those actions are far out weighed by the mistakes they continue to make::

Disney owns a lot of extraneous companies, a lot not entertainment related, and they are primarily interested in making money. I don't see the benifit of having a bar in the middle of a theme park, I guess they are trying to cash in on all those stressed out parents (bad mouse!).
