Does Disney World Need More Resorts?

It's been a few years now since Art of Animation has opened. The Disney hotels run at an extremely high occupancy rate, and even though the Parks had a slower summer, Disney Resort occupancy was up 3%. In that time DVC has added new villas to existing Resorts but we haven't gotten a new property. While it's nice for members that DVC is adding on, I feel like when they just add to an existing resort they're kind of phoning it in. I mean Grand Floridian Villas are sitting way out there on their own and the only addition that the Resort got when they went in was a splash pad for kids at the Beach Pool. I think they did a better job with the Polynesian expansion when it came to refurbishing the overall resort.

Personally, I would like to see the development of an entirely new resort. Do you think that Disney could use a new Resort Property? What category would you like to see it in? What sort of theme would you enjoy?
