They added a Western themed Jungle cruise type ride this year. They have been doing a lot to make it more family oriented. I kind of wish more people would give it a chance.I'm mostly thinking of stuff like the TGI Fridays and Famous Dave's and Subway being there instead of something original, but it's been a decade. I would not be surprised if it all improved under Ouimet.
You mean he hasn’t?Bob Chapek would wet his pants if he could get away with half of the craziness in terms of pricing they could think of.
Did it all of a sudden get good?Except for the biggest/new one.
I'm guessing you haven't been following what's been going on with Rise over these last few days.
Personally, I'd argue Bob is winning. The revenue may be the same but those churros, per unit, cost way more to make, store, transport and serve than the essentially free-at-scale Genie+ does.There's some validity to both perspectives.
Earlier at least one person said they'd pay for Genie+ but cut the equivalent elsewhere so "Bob doesn't win". I mean, if you pay for Genie+ but buy two fewer churros per day, Disney is getting the same revenue (or more once inflation of prices is taken into account). By all means, do what you have to do to make a trip work for your budget, but nothing will change as long as people keep going.
While I completely agree it's reasonable to criticize aspects of Disney but still go due to what value is still provided, it just feels like most people are really really unwilling to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to displeasure with Disney.
Well, there you go. We’re coming at this from different angles and I understand yours. While I got my enjoyment of Disney from my mom, my dad has for years jokingly said, “Y’all know it’s the same mouse, right?”It's why it's hard for me to understand the emotional attachment. I don't have that family attachment that a lot of you have for Disney either. The only thing in my life I can equate it to is how much I was blown away my first time visiting Cedar Point. Seeing that skyline of those massive steel coasters I was in awe.
I would say it’s the opposite. The quick serve is probably better than the traditional and the table is way more expensive and less variety/quality than in the pastDisagree on the food aspect. If all you do is quick service then yeah it is a bit of a let down. The table service has always been good.
If people are buying this without recognizing where it’s going? Then he is definitely winning.Personally, I'd argue Bob is winning. The revenue may be the same but those churros per unit, cost more to make, store, transport and serve than the essentially free-at-scale Genie+ does.
That sword cuts both ways. If one is a self-professed social justice warrior, why would you support a company that deliberately prices out the under privileged? Perhaps they privately prefer not to associate with the very people for whom they publicly claim to have such compassion.It does have be an either of proposition. If you hate what it's become why continue to support it? My guess is you're addicted to the pixie dust and can't stay away.
Table service has seen a massive decline in quality. There are some bright spots, but overall, for the Disney owned and operated, it's just become overpriced and low quality.Disagree on the food aspect. If all you do is quick service then yeah it is a bit of a let down. The table service has always been good.
My expectations aren't super high.…ohhh…
i still can’t quite wrap my brain around it
Woah…woah…woah…That sword cuts both ways. If one is a self-professed social justice warrior, why would you support a company that deliberately prices out the under privileged? Perhaps they privately prefer not to associate with the very people for whom they publicly claim to have such compassion.
