Bob Chapek Confirms Disney Will Overhaul Epcot

SEC filings are infallible? Good info. Let me go tell the execs at Enron, Global Crossing, Madoff Securities, WaMu, Lehman Bros., etc., etc., etc......

Also, SEC definitely doesn't have a problem with false filings or anything:
Fake Warren Buffett filings shows the SEC still has a problem
Fake Avon filing puts spotlight on SEC
Former finance chief for Washington company charged with falsified SEC filings

The SEC puts an incredible amount of trust in the companies to report their numbers correctly. And even they don't catch every instance of false info.

Not saying DIS is, or is not, filing improperly, just pointing out the fact that relying on SEC filings for much of anything could potentially be a fool's errand. They are very, very much, "buyer beware."

The big problem with this story is that it doesn’t really make sense. Siemens does not, nor have theymake an ALWEG-style monorail. Why would he larger company be so aggressive about building, for the first time, a somewhat niche product?
You got me. Like I said, this is all second-hand info. Maybe Siemens wanted a deal for something more substantial, like bringing the monorail system up to whatever their current flagship tech is? I could see that being a legit point of disagreement. Siemens wants a big showpiece installation. Disney wants something cheaper or less dramatic. Maybe it's all just internal gossip that has traveled way too far.

Regardless, at this point, I'm just speculating about stuff that's off-topic anyway. Probably not much point carrying this thread any further.

Many of whom faced legal trouble because of the false filings. It's illegal to report false information to the SEC. And yes, people break the law. But I put more credence in an SEC filing than a marketing blog post, for example. Generally you have to assume that they are accurate unless evidence dictates otherwise. It is a bit more than buyer beware.

Sure. But those things tend to be caught pretty quickly. And aren't from the companies themselves.

I thought this was a project to fix the issue of the monorail exit dumping you into the unsecure area and making you go back through security to enter EPCOT. So I am guessing a support for either a bridge from the monorail platform over the ticket booths into the secure area or ramp down there and a segregated path into the secure area.

Could be that too. Martin did say they had a solution for the monorail but he hasn't said if this is work is related. It's just not knowing what they're doing and so far all we have is a small hole after 4 months is the puzzling bit.

I'd pay for a "Smash a Legacy" experience. I've hated the tombstones since the day they were put in.

I don't mind the nets that much but I still want them gone.
I’m the opposite, I’ve never minded Leave a Legacy too much, at least they’re aesthetically pleasing despite the location. The nets are just thrown in there though.

Either way, I’m just ready for a change, and for them to get going on something already.

As an owner of a leave a legacy photo, I dr o not want them moved. However, if they do move them, they should move them to Disney Springs and guarantee they stay another 25 years. Put them where the bus stop is.

True, just wanted to point out SEC filings are not the end-all, be-all of financial filings. I agree that SEC filings are almost certainly more useful than a marketing blog post.

Also, you must have not read the last article I linked, as the gentleman was still working as CFO for the company in question. Company settled for $1.5 Million, Controller for $20,000, CEO paid back bonuses of $20,800.

I wonder if the Bob will ever have to pay back bonuses. Personally, I think $1 Million for each year the Yeti has been in the Disco is incredibly fair. :hilarious:

I just want the entrance to look somewhat decent again. We all know it won't look like this in today's age.
