    The Spirit Takes the Fifth ...

    I'm not familiar with Avenue Q or The Book of Mormon, but I think the Lopezes have done a great job writing songs for Disney films. I thought all of the songs in Frozen and Winnie the Pooh were excellent and very memorable.

    The epic Marvel debate massive

    Now you're being ridiculous. The contract defines a specific geographic region over which Universal has exclusive Marvel theme park rights. It is not arbitrary. It's clear that you are not interested in dealing with facts - only half-baked analogies, wishful thinking, and conspiracy theories...

    The epic Marvel debate massive

    Your divorce analogy makes no sense. There is nothing that Comcast wants so badly from Disney that they would agree to end the current arrangement. You ascribe Disney's lack of desire to negotiate for the Florida Marvel rights to the failures of current management. What makes you think that...

    The epic Marvel debate massive

    It doesn't matter how much Disney paid for Marvel. It is not the right thing to do. I have already explained why; I won't waste time typing it again.

    Refer back to where I said that the two situations are not similar.

    The epic Marvel debate massive

    If Disney is worried about losing market share, Marvel is not the only answer. And there is no guarantee that Disney would do Marvel better than Universal has already done it as far as Florida is concerned.

    The epic Marvel debate massive

    The Marvel-Universal deal was made in the mid-90s. It was a good deal for both sides at the time. Disney acquired Marvel knowing full well that they would have to honor such arrangements. Disney paid a premium to obtain the distribution rights for the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. They are...

    The epic Marvel debate massive

    :confused: Wow, I just...I can't even...oh man.... Comcast doesn't have to play their hand for anything. As it stands right now, they have the Marvel rights for as long as they want, and during that time Marvel will continue collecting its yearly dues. There is nothing Comcast/Universal...

    In other words, your opinionated prediction is just wishful thinking. The two situations are not similar.

    The epic Marvel debate massive

    As a little thought exercise, just for the moment let's take this statement to be true. If Comcast does have some kind of vendetta against Disney, that doesn't seem compatible with your opinionated prediction about Comcast and Disney making a deal whereby Disney would get the Marvel rights for...

    Bad news, guys, I don't think we'll ever get an Incredibles ride in WDW:

    The epic Marvel debate massive

    How exactly does the Universal deal weaken the value of the theme park rights for any location outside of the region covered by the deal? As I understand it, the Marvel rights were a very good deal for Universal because Marvel was desperate for cash at the time that IOA was being planned. The...

    EPCOT Resorts Cancelled Monorail Loop

    The OP seems to spend a lot of energy trying to prove the existence of these footers and incorporate them into a comprehensive plan for monorail expansion, albeit one that does not exist on paper. The existence/nonexistence of these footers is not a make or break factor on the question of...

    The Dumbing down of WDW!

    By itself, the presence of cartoon characters doesn't represent a dumbing down. It depends on the execution. For instance, with regards to Nemo in the Living Seas, I think Disney missed a big opportunity to make the Clam-mobile ride more relevant to the theme of Epcot. They could have made Mr...

    Orange Bird Back at Sunshine Tree Terrace in the Magic Kingdom!

    The Orange Bird is a DISNEY character. None of the press surrounding the Orange Bird revival has mentioned the Anita Bryant connection. Why should Disney go looking for trouble by acknowledging something nobody seems to care about? Regardless of where you stand on this issue, there is a time...

    Orange Bird Back at Sunshine Tree Terrace in the Magic Kingdom!

    I like the Orange Bird, and, by itself, it's a nice thing to return the character to the park. It's also great that they have Richard Sherman involved in bringing back the songs. (What exactly is Disney planning to do with the music? Anybody know?) But I can't shake the feeling that it was done...
