    News Disney plans to include a black Santa Claus at Walt Disney World this year as the company continues its diversity and inclusion program

    Because when a child sees 2 different people that are both supposed to be the real Santa and they look wildly different, how is that possibly a sufficient response?

    News Disney plans to include a black Santa Claus at Walt Disney World this year as the company continues its diversity and inclusion program

    Thank you for clarifying, apologies for my assumption. I agree with that notion but I do think it could be confusing for kids who are taught to believe he is one, real person. I think removing him is better overall.

    News Disney plans to include a black Santa Claus at Walt Disney World this year as the company continues its diversity and inclusion program

    My only issue is it could be confusing for young kids who still believe in Santa. Many communities have a version of Santa in malls, etc. that are consistent with the Santas that kids are taught in their homes (that are consistent with their race). And they can go and visit those Santas at a...

    News Disney plans to include a black Santa Claus at Walt Disney World this year as the company continues its diversity and inclusion program

    I can sense the sarcasm in your response. I’m not suggesting they do this but if they are trying to be inclusive, that would be the way to do it.

    News Disney plans to include a black Santa Claus at Walt Disney World this year as the company continues its diversity and inclusion program

    Inclusive would be rotating Santa’s across a variety of races randomly each night. Not simply adding a Black version and deepening exclusion of other races.

    News Disney plans to include a black Santa Claus at Walt Disney World this year as the company continues its diversity and inclusion program

    I realize this is a joke but it raises a legitimate point. Inclusion efforts seem targeted towards a single point of inclusion rather than a breadth of inclusion. I have no issues with this, Black Santa has been widely featured/available in decorations and merch for decades. But Disney’s...

    News 'Disney Enchantment' coming to Magic Kingdom October 1 2021

    Part of me wishes they had the foresight to see what they had in their internal previews of HEA and held it back until the 50th anniversary. The tone right now would be very, very different.

    News 'Disney Enchantment' coming to Magic Kingdom October 1 2021

    After watching Disney Enchantment several times in person, I have some finalish thoughts: The intro is pretty good and has grown on me to the point where it excites me nearly as much as HEAs The pre-finale scene with Moana is really strong, not quite as strong as Go The Distance in HEA, but...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Medical advice? The contrary. I'm not advising anyone to do anything. Simply pointing out an egregious flaw in a member's understanding of a study. The only thing that's clear about WDWMagic is that its members have no understanding of even basic statistics. The CDC actually put out quite the...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Are you suggesting that people hospitalized for COVID-like illness is representative of the average previously infected American? And what the heck are you talking about? What does epidemiology have to do with understanding statistics? Where did you get your degree from? Please cite the...

    I assume you're referring to the CDC study regarding hospitalization data. If so, that absolutely does not prove anything regarding the general public. Literally nothing.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I know my posts may suggest I am against the vaccine, I am not. Nor do I recommend someone not get vaccinated. I am simply saying that the unvaccinated are not the entire picture and that we still would have a problem on our hands with even higher vaccination rates than we have right now, as...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I don't like anecdotal evidence as much as any of you but as someone in the NYC tristate area, I know more vaccinated people with breakthrough infections than those without. Perhaps areas of high transmission have different rates of breakthroughs, I would assume that would make sense.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Not sure where you live but where I am, it's the running joke around here. "Why get vaccinated, then you'd have COVID and a sore arm." No, I grasp it just fine. Another basic fact of virology, when infected with a virus, your immune system builds up antibodies to those viral particles. Or are...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    No. The unvaccinated are driving more of the spread. Not all of it. You're honestly sitting here suggesting that every vaccinated person that has a breakthrough infection (which seems to be virtually everyone at this point) was infected by an unvaccinated person?
