Busniess Centers in The Parks?

With an ever increasingly mobile work environment, do you think Disney should offer Business Services in the Parks? Would you ever use them?

Most of what I need to accomplish I can manage through my iPhone Apps. I can't think of why I personally would ever need to send/receive a fax or make copies while in the Parks. However I know that somethings poo-poo hits the fan and you have to get something done as fast as humanly possible. Right now, if you're in a Park and need a business center, these resorts may be your best bets.

If you are in the Magic Kingdom: Contemporary Resort (walk from the park to the resort)
If you are in Hollywood Studios: BoardWalk Inn (boat from the park to the resort)
If you are in Epcot: Beach Club Resort (walk from the World Showcase entrance to the resort)
If you are in the Animal Kingdom Park: Coronado Springs Resort (bus from the park to the resort)

I would a big fat NO for me because I personally like to disconnect from the world when we go, but my DH is always talking to work. When we went on our honeymoon, one day he spent a few hours in the business center responding to emails and taking care of things...that was a big bill...I told him this time he can forget doing that because this is all about us relaxing!

Same here. The Blackberry gets shut off and any crisis at work will just have to wait or otherwise be dealt with by someone else. Disney's my 100% away from it all place.

I would stay as far away from a business center as possible.

I got called from work while I was in WDW in November. It was in the morning before we left for the park of the day. I politely told them that I was on vacation and to email my team and someone would take care of it when they got in. I was not happy for two reasons: A - I had a note in the system that our data center uses to look up our contact information that I was on vacation and B - I got called for something that I shouldn't have been called for to begin with.

Unfortunately, as much as I would like to stay disconnected, I still have work to do when things come up. I just rely on my iPhone for things that come up during the day that need to be addressed ASAP - usually just emails. I would have no use for a business center, since most things I would need is on my laptop and can do it electronically. If there is something that requires the use of my laptop, it just waits until I get back to the room. Luckily, the times I go - in December - we are somewhat slow, so there is not too much that needs immediate attention.
