    Cars 2 Money Grab....

    Or people are staying away because of the critics. Cars2 is a very good movie. Cars was my son and my favorite movie and my 9 year old step son loves both movies. There is nothing wrong with a movie for boys. The critics are narrow minded and a little ridiculous. One review I saw criticized...

    Would someone fill me in please?

    There is plenty that can and should be done. Mandate how many chaperones per # of kids. Then if the tour operator violates this or their groups are rowdy, disruptive, or cut it in line then penalize the tour company. I have had the unlucky experience of having them try and cut me in line...

    Bob Iger Video Interview

    If I remember correctly Lucas needed cash. He was going through a divorce and wanted to finance his own movies. Pixar and growing it was not part his plan. http://www.applematters.com/article/how_to_turn_10_million_into_7_billion_a_brief_history_of_pixar/

    Disneyworld Addresses Autism Bullying Incident...

    It's sad. We have experienced it. The key is bullies pick on kids that a lot of times are so much smaller that even fighting back is a joke to the bullies. The schools hands may be tied, but parents are not. It goes beyond who started it, it is how long has this kid been being tormented by...

    Disneyworld Addresses Autism Bullying Incident...

    The 2 employees represent Disney. Keep in mind one was a Commisary Manager and the other was responding to a specific complaint. This is their job and they should have known the policies surrounding the complaint or issue they were responding to. Disney as a company did not educate front line...

    Disneyworld Addresses Autism Bullying Incident...

    In school a child would have been encouraged to report it to an authority figure. In the case of bullying, kids are being taught get involved and not walk away leaving the person being bullied isolated. Walking away empowers the bullies. True, full blame for this falls upon the mother of these...

    Disneyworld Addresses Autism Bullying Incident...

    The family did address it, politely, with the teenagers. The result was an escalation of the noise directed at the child. They then addressed it again. Then the Commissary Manager spoke to the teenagers and subsequently their mother. Sorry, but Disney has a duty to maintain as...

    Disneyworld Addresses Autism Bullying Incident...

    No one said it was Disney's fault for the bullying, that falls onto the mother of the teenagers. However, the Commisary Manager's response and a subsequent email essentally saying, "well there is nothing we can do." falls on Disney's shoulders. Disney does have policies to deal with these...

    Disneyworld Addresses Autism Bullying Incident...

    I am going to assume that the writer of the article is familiar with what bullying means. In that context these teenagers went way beyond just blowing the horns in celebration. Per the blog ("It was 6 p.m., dinner hour, and a full SIX HOURS until midnight.") Based on what I read they did...

    Narnia Outshines Tron & Tangled at the Box Office

    Seems that using Narnia as an example without the caveat that Disney was partnered with Walden Media leaves out an important aspect in the decision making process for Disney.

    How did you surprise your kid, spouse, friend, etc with a trip to WDW???

    When my son was 7 I woke him up at 3 am and told him we were going to Star Wars Weekends at WDW. He was not happy when I first woke him up but when I mentioned WDW he went from asleep to wide awake with an enormous amount of energy adn a massive smile! This past May my wife and I picked up my...

    Using a Travel Agent?

    As a Project manager that is extremely organized and a little obsessive about details I am now booking my 7th (I think) trip with KK. So far they are 6 for 6 is complete satisfaction and since this trip has been a little more hectic than past one's Pam has already come thorugh for me. As for...

    Monster's Inc 2

    I read this blog everyday and Honor has been pretty accurate. I, for one, am excited about this. I think there are plenty of possibilities to explore in Monstropolis. http://blueskydisney.blogspot.com/ The rumors are true... It appears that Pete Docter has settled on his next directing...

    Big annoucement for WDW management today.

    My company has been going thru this every quarter for about 2 years now. Tommorrow is the next notification day for my group. Not fun. And yes, it is illegal to target those at retirment age for a forced layoff. The force comes into play after the buyout is offered. Then the company...
