Here's where I first heard of the story, on a link from Headwaters News.
To me, the most interesting paragraph was:
The trips are part of a trial phase, so there will be no official business launch or advertising. The entertainment corporation is marketing the trips to families who previously have taken Disney vacations, and will charge between $5,600 and $7,800 for a family of four, excluding airfare. Groups will be no larger than 35 tourists at a time, Haines said.
Here's a take on the business perspective -- why Disney will probably succeed.
This AP story ran all over the country. I believe it originated in the Fla. Sun-Sentinel, on Feb. 19, a story by Sean Mussenden.
What exactly is ecotourism? I find it a hopelessly vague word, but here's an intriguing article that goes into more detail.
Finally, here's the best book on Disney's transformation of the New Urbanist frontier in Celebration, Florida.
