    About SWGE, maybe it’s just me, but...

    I think it will all depend on how much of a fan of Star Wars you are. I didn't much care for Avatar, as I thought it was just preachy green weenie garbage so I never really cared for the Pandora part of AK... I can see people that aren't great fans of Star Wars feeling the same way. If it had...

    Disney World Low Attendance Paradox

    I wouldn't be surprised if they do a full on fall discount. There is some manager in Disney that will know his/her success or failure is tied to the attendance numbers and will be pushing to achieve higher numbers. In most corporations you'll find that for every metric that can be measured...

    Poll: Effect Of Disney Selling Majority/Complete Ownership of WDW

    Easily accomplished. Most likely way it would be done is by the Disney Company splitting up the company into different parts. It has been done with other companies in the past when it became apparent that the value of the companies as stand alones was greater than the value of the large...

    Selling Disney photos...sort of...

    Technically Disney could sue you if you started making money off photos you took of their parks.... but unless you decide to start selling thousands of calendars it isn't something I would ever worry about.

    Recommended Primes for the Parks?

    Last few trips were almost exclusively prime lenses... equivalent focal lengths of 24mm, 50mm and 80mm. I used to take a zoom or two to get pictures of things like animals until I finally convinced myself that it made more sense to focus on shots of my family since I can find a picture of any...

    OK, I'll Admit it...Disney Prices Are Out Of Control

    And it wouldn't surprise me if you have different managers making those decisions completely out of the minds of the other managers. I could really see some poor dolt that is in charge of food sales wondering why they have a sudden down turn during the after hours events.

    OK, I'll Admit it...Disney Prices Are Out Of Control

    I wouldn't expect them to hit any noticeable rough waters for at least 10 or 15 years. Only thing that will likely cause them to have issues sooner is Universal were to suddenly go after the toddler to pre-teen market. At the moment they are the most likely competition for WDW but have tended...

    OK, I'll Admit it...Disney Prices Are Out Of Control

    The reality is most companies that behave like Disney will face a future problem because of their focus on the quick return. Right now the fact is the population that can afford to go to Disney is growing fast enough that they can afford to drive away some percentage of their customers because...

    OK, I'll Admit it...Disney Prices Are Out Of Control

    The reason they behave this way and will continue to is really down to them being a publicly traded company. Shareholder look for fast short-term results and that leads to the types of things Disney does with the parks. If they were a private company like the Mars candy company then it would...

    Call me Elitist but how about some soap?

    I know what your talking about, when I used a fountain pen the trick was always make sure it is completely full when you fly or it will cause problems... but when your shampoo bottle has one of those push tops that opens it they don't tend to seal as well as you would like. Of course you also...

    Call me Elitist but how about some soap?

    Some things you get a the high end hotels put Disney to shame, much better bedding in a Four Seasons, you get an incredible down comforter and some of the best pillows I've ever slept on... Not the same at Disney. The only thing I will give Disney vs most every high end hotel I've ever stayed...

    Call me Elitist but how about some soap?

    Actually traveling with your own shampoo is just asking for a mess. We had out daughter do that on a trip because she thought she had to have her shampoo.... What happened? We ended up with shampoo all over all the clothes in the luggage that contained the shampoo. And yes, it was even packed...

    How many are priced out?

    Yes, I think the last time I bought the annual pass it was when it only took 10 days in the park to make it worth it. Never factored in the discounts as you could never depend on them happening. When we would get the annual passes back before maybe 2010 I think we could count on some decent...

    Technology is killing creativity

    But assume the law was never created, eventually as non-smoking worker got lung cancer and sued employers for providing them with an unsafe work environment, companies would have eliminated smoking on their own simply to avoid being bankrupted from litigation. Smoking in businesses would have...

    Technology is killing creativity

    I would agree that the second hand smoking is a problem, but the only people that it is really a problem for that have control over it are the children of smokers that can't simply choose to go somewhere else. As the Clear Air Act did nothing to eliminate smoking by parents around their...

    Technology is killing creativity

    We shouldn't have. Businesses should have been free to make their own decisions on whether to allow smoking or not. If more people didn't want smoking than wanted it business would have eliminated smoking on their own. And, no I'm not a smoker and never have been... I just believe governments...

    Technology is killing creativity

    No, it is irresponsible for one business to change when the change amounts to absolutely nothing compared the actions of others. It is just like all the carbon emission cutting being pushed by green weenies in the US... given the atmosphere is global and your fastest growing countries like...

    Technology is killing creativity

    Your analogy doesn't even make sense. My was simply if what you are doing is a drop in the bucket compared to what someone else is doing then your stopping does nothing to solve the problem. That is completely different from if someone jumps off a bridge then you should too. If you don't...

    Technology is killing creativity

    When countries like China that pump toxic waste into the atmosphere to the point that the people near their plants have to wear respirators just to walk outside stop pumping everything under the sun into the air, then I'll say maybe Disney should follow suit.... but the amount of pollution from...

    Technology is killing creativity

    I would say technology can often kill things creativity because it makes often creates an opportunity to become lazy and just throw things together. Kind of like microwaves and microwavable TV dinners has resulted in a pretty much inability for a lot of people to cook anything else. Sure you...
