    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I’m almost afraid to ask, but I’d love to know what qualifies as “clear unbiased numbers”.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    What?! What are you talking about? If that information is true, it is not in any way “good news”. To say that it is is absolutely absurd.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Because “it doesn’t pass the smell test” is just another way of dismissing the story and the account of those involved. Just call them liars, their account flies in the face of everything you’ve argued so far so it must be a lie, right? Otherwise, how exactly does it fail to pass your smell...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Fake news, right? I mean, you have no real idea what you’re talking about, but nevertheless it “doesn’t pass the smell test”. In other words, it disproves your argument but you can’t refute it with actual facts so you just cast wild aspersions because it’s easier to live in ignorance and denial.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I can’t decide whether this post is hilarious or terrifying.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Is “fake science” the new “fake news”? Because putting the word “fake” before things you don’t like makes them not true and is apparently how it’s done now.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I’m having real trouble understanding why some are trying so hard to minimise the seriousness of the situation in Florida. I understand looking for glimmers of hope or mitigating factors amidst all of the increasingly dire news, but no matter how it’s spun, the situation is escalating and with...

    News Walt Disney World's COVID-19 reopening plans announced - July 11

    A continued rise in infections in Florida over the next few weeks would likely affect the reopening plans, the link between WDW’s plan to reopen and COVID in the context of this discussion should be painfully obvious to everyone. The governor can say whatever he wants, he can’t force WDW to...

    News Walt Disney World's COVID-19 reopening plans announced - July 11

    The infection rates in Florida are rising, which could impact WDW. Therefore, the discussion is quite clearly relevant to Disney.

    You would hope so. But I’m not holding my breath.

    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.
