I'd publish a SIMS city if it got me my own nuclear power plant.

I can see the argument both ways for Walt. It does seem to me he was pulling away from parks and films a bit and thinking of bigger things. I could see him trying for an EPCOT. I could also see him looking for the best way to get a toe-hold in Florida. The location was obviously chosen for year-round tourism, which speaks to entertainment . . .
