    Man Accused of Stealing Buzzy's Clothing from Disney World Arrested

    He has fans? That’s just sad. I only know about him because I listen to the Defunctland podcast and he was a “guest” on an episode, but I’ve never really understood his appeal. I’ve seen videos of people going into places like River Country and they can be interesting, but I can’t believe that...

    Man Accused of Stealing Buzzy's Clothing from Disney World Arrested

    That’s not blackmail. That’s Disney warning idiots on YouTube that they stand to suffer consequences if they continue to collaborate with a bigger idiot who seems to think that he needs to break the law in order to make a living. I’ve seen on Twitter that one of these idiots is actually a cast...

    Man Accused of Stealing Buzzy's Clothing from Disney World Arrested

    I’m not 100% sure I want to know the answer, but what fantasy has he contrived to arrive at the conclusion that he has somehow been blackmailed by Disney? Does a banning order constitute blackmail?

    Police Presence at Epcot Resort Area

    It’s been a bizarre, eventful few days. Didn’t think there’d be a more surreal incident than a Jungle Cruise boat full of guests sinking today, then you read about SWAT teams storming the Yacht & Beach Club...

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    And it could be someone with the exact same philosophy as Chapek. Hopefully this works out well for the parks and someone with some modicum of creativity and ambition gets the job; on the other hand, Chapek obviously feels that his way of running the parks does work so it’s very plausible that...

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    It's not. But it's still a higher bar than Bob Chapek has ever set. Chapek is cut from the same cloth as Jay Rasulo.

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    No, in large part because his MO was fixing everything that Eisner was perceived to have broken - rebuilding bridges with Pixar was a pretty promising step in the right direction in that regard.

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    Iger is creative?! He’s hidden that extremely well since he joined the company.

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    Make no mistake, this will go down as one of the biggest mistakes, and stupidest decisions, in the history of TWDC. There is no silver lining to this, no tiny sliver of hope to cling to that this will somehow defy any of our worst expectations and work out for the better. Chapek is a horrible...

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    Give Chapek a year and we’ll look back on Iger’s tenure as some kind of weird utopia.

    It might be less time consuming to ask what he’s done right.

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    I thought I’d be happy on the day that Chapek was removed from his position as head of the parks. Goes to show that you really should be careful what you wish for.

    Man Accused of Stealing Buzzy's Clothing from Disney World Arrested

    Putting a camera or two on Everest might be a worthwhile idea, evidently. Or is it really just that easy to stroll into popular attractions outside of park hours?

    Man Accused of Stealing Buzzy's Clothing from Disney World Arrested

    I’m not a lawyer so maybe I’m looking at this too simplistically, but he’s clearly violated the banning orders he was given and there is video evidence to prove that, so shouldn’t he be back in front of a judge now? I know he had been banned on two separate occasions from Disney property, one...

    Carelessly wandering into a backstage area you shouldn’t be in can be easy, I agree. Climbing to the top of Big Thunder Mountain shouldn’t be doable, let alone easy.
