I think the studio's role was a bit larger in that it helped make the entire WDW complex a longer term vacation spot. Instead of just going to WDW for a few days, the studio and subsequently Animal Kingdom, have made WDW a week-long destination. There is a certain amount of strategic (ie CEO level) thinking involved in the decision to green light these parks.MGM was saved by being part of WDW with all the ancillary visitors willing to accept a half-baked park.
