    Bob Chapek's response to Florida's 'Don't Say Gay' bill

    To the casual observer, that might very well have been the case. However, it must be noted that Gen Z viewed Disney's acquisition of Fox negatively, and many people were beginning to lose trust after the Star Wars debacle. Disney has a habit of going through ten-year cycles where things will be...

    Bob Chapek's response to Florida's 'Don't Say Gay' bill

    I want to contribute my perspective as a gay man who was part of the last generation of folks to grow up pre-marriage legalization (I was in high school when the Obergefell decision was made). Growing up, I thought that gay people were abnormal, didn't exist near me, and were shunned members of...

    Bob Chapek's response to Florida's 'Don't Say Gay' bill

    As I pointed out yesterday before my comment was removed (not sure why?), the Florida legislature is considering repealing the 1967 Act, which created RCID. Here's a tweet posted this morning by a FL House Member: Like I've said previously, I don't care about politics. I'm a gay man, I'm not...

    Bob Chapek's response to Florida's 'Don't Say Gay' bill

    Weren't all the jobs Imagineering jobs? It doesn't make sense to move Imagineers to a state that does not have Disney Parks.

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    Exactly. It's crazy to see how Disney has manipulated and marketed itself towards my demographic. They play to the most base instincts, immaturity, and longing for nostalgia. This isn't so different from their marketing strategies in the past, but what is different is how Disney utilizes...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    I spent my childhood visiting the parks with my grandparents, while my boyfriend had never been until our trip this past week. Those childhood visits are what caused me to fall in love with the parks, architecture, storytelling, even urbanism, and history--the very interests that have shaped my...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    I have to give Bob Chapek credit. He finally made Epcot a park that kids will enjoy more than adults. I haven't been to WDW since June of 2008. I went this week to be there for and celebrate the 50th anniversary. I get that this anniversary was meant to be a celebration, but it feels more like...

    Walt Disney Studios Park: Fixing Eisner's Folly

    Hey. Yes! Sorry for the delay, all. I've been busy with finals and the ramping up of summer courses these past three weeks.

    The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Season 7: Fantasmic Journeys [CONCLUDED!]

    Oh boy, this map brings me back. Do you know what's crazy? I can remember the exact Jim Hill Podcast episodes I listened to while making this map.

    What If Disney: Disneyland Resort Builds an Better Second Gate

    Where did you find this image? I haven't seen this version of the DCA hub before. It's fascinating! Much better hub than what was ultimately built.

    Walt Lives: An Alternate History of the Walt Disney Company

    It ended up being a tie between options 2 and 3, so I decided to go with option 2 as it had a more "retro" look to me. Once this semester wraps up I'll have a few additions to this project. To hold you all off until then, here's a taste of what's in store:

    England Pavillion and Prince Philip

    Not what I said. And just ask Cromwell how well that worked out for him? The last time I checked, Cromwell's band of merry fools only lasted for 11 years. Parliament still receives its authority to govern from the Crown. Hence why the Prime Minister must be asked by the Crown to form a...

    England Pavillion and Prince Philip

    Elegant rebuttals, though still not entirely within the accurate scope of the available historical record. The injuries and usurpations outlined in both documents are all acts committed by Parliament. Parliament, of course, receives its power to govern from the monarch. The wording in both...
