If it was not getting a free cart then your solution is not good... Nothing is free in life my friend.
Hey SouthCo, I really did not have a problem... I am normally happy to walk the campground. My thoughts were primarily business speculation. Disney spends a small fortune running busses through the campground that would be alleviated by providing the Golf Carts... So while nothing in life is free... Good business sense says if you can do something that offers greater convinience at a cheaper cost to the provider, you do it. I will point out, you say no campground will offer a golf cart for free... I am yet to stay anywhere other then Disney that offers on site shuttle service for free... They are pretty much an entity unto themselves so regular rules need not apply.
I do like the part where Disney would be able to control the size and speed of the carts. While I recognize Grumpy has a mountain more experience at Disney then me, and I am sure he is correct about the abuse of Disney carts... My taste of long weekend traffic was one in which locals brought in heavy fast moving carts that were more like compact cars and represented a significant increase in the potential for accidents/injuries.
