    News 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    I know the focus has been on WDW and DL proper in terms of these layoffs, but I still cannot stop thinking of all the second degree and indirect losses from a DL shutdown/WDW Orlando slowdown. All of the industries and workers that are reliant on the WDW and DL economic activity. The bus drivers...

    that, and there may be a legitimate concern over the use of wind instruments and singers. If many can’t perform while wearing a mask, and there’s a famous study of that inside choir that social distanced where everyone still got sick.

    News 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    There’s another dimension to this: many cities/counties/states have imposed eviction moratoriums. Again, not saying I disagree with that policy per se, but there is something fundamentally unjust about a government making a business incapable of collecting revenue (from their tenants, or from...

    Not all of them. While the Parks are losing vital performers, entertainers, and front-line Cast Members, there are still people employed within the company to re-theme Splash Mountain and insert Inclusion within the Four Keys.

    Honest question, how does Iger stay on the governor’s task force when his company issues a statement like this? https://www.google.com/amp/s/abc7news.com/amp/bob-iger-gavin-newsom-california-task-force/6111859/

    On layoffs, very bad attendance, and Iger's legacy being one of disgrace

    I get Iger may desire to preserve political capital for his future, but he’s been awfully silent throughout this notwithstanding having an important place at the table. https://www.google.com/amp/s/abc7news.com/amp/bob-iger-gavin-newsom-california-task-force/6111859/

    Rumor Selfies with Mando

    Seems like the idea that Galaxy’s Edge is fixed in time to a specific point between The Last Jedi and Rise of Skywalker is becoming discretionary within WDI?

    News Disney updates its legendary Four Keys model to include a fifth key

    My earlier posts have been moved by I wanted to thank @_caleb for his sincerity and ability to converse meaningfully. We may approach some of these issues from different perspectives but I appreciate the gracious way he engaged me. We could all use a bit more grace with one another!

    News Disney updates its legendary Four Keys model to include a fifth key

    I haven’t rode Splash in decades and don’t have any personal nostalgia for the ride, but it’s a favorite of many and hate to see it go away for that reason. It hasn’t affected my vacations in the slightest. But, I think it’s wildly hypocritical of a company to do things like this, while turning...

    News Disney updates its legendary Four Keys model to include a fifth key

    Except when it results in negative changes to more than half a dozen beloved rides and attractions, and diminishing menu options so as to be inclusive to those that choose to be vegan. You’re right, absolutely no affect at all.

    News Disney updates its legendary Four Keys model to include a fifth key

    This new key for “cultural transformation” makes a lot of sense when you consider TWDC’s association with the PRC. Under the PRC and the folks Disney thanked in the Mulan credits, the Uighur culture is being transformed to nonexistence.

    Reservation system here to stay? Update from Josh D'Amaro

    Speaking of Josh... did anyone else find the rest of the presentation yesterday (from what’s been gleaned from reports) a little odd? I feel like there had been some behind-the-scenes cajoling by Disney to get Disneyland opened again. It seems that’s been unsuccessful so this amounted to a...

    News ESPN plans to move college basketball events to ESPN Wide World of Sports

    It looks like these are those preseason invitationals they have. Usually a few days, maybe a week tops. Often over holidays (Thanksgiving to early December)

    Kermit has been working with Bob Weis, hmmmm? (EDIT: AND JOE RHODE?!?!)

    Weird they went with Stephen Colbert (CBS) and not their own in-company late night host Jimmy Kimmel, but understandable given Kimmel’s history of misogynistic comedy and blackface routines.

    Kermit has been working with Bob Weis, hmmmm? (EDIT: AND JOE RHODE?!?!)

    I don't want to diminish the talents and abilities of the younger Bouza, who seems quite accomplished at her age. Perhaps she's part of the production side of things? But the other WDI'ers have each tagged both a Muppet and colleague, and Bouza tapped in her daughter. Maybe we're reading too...
