<< Humm... you mean Disney might actually have to make Walt's EPCOT dream a reality and have a fully enclosed theme park? >>

In 1967, Walt Disney (after his death) presented on TV his original concept of what EPCOT (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) was to be and it in no way resembled what EPCOT is today. It was not to be a theme park, or more accurately a permanent World's Fair. Instead, it was actually a city with approximately 20,000 citizens. The central core/shopping/office district was to be inclosed by a dome, and the rest of the "city" extended away from it in a wagon wheel style of monorails and streets. I have this presentation on DVD from Disney's Treasures collection.
