Yeah. He’s a little too anxious for his own good. When he started off the stuff was entertaining enough but now that he’s going for the ‘breaking news’ and opinion angle I don’t sense it will go well for him.
And I agree with the earlier poster who noted that he is getting a bit of a big head since moving to Orlando.
I've noticed all of this, too. His channel was really nice to watch for a while, because it was a Disney fan point of view, something that had the wonder and fun of visiting a Disney park.

But now it's once or twice (maybe more) a day, uploading videos of every time a trash can gets missed on Main Street for pickup.

He does a great job presenting material and covering many different and interesting subject matters/details concisely...but, he can be offputting (hence not often passing 50k views) with his unwarranted confidence of opinion. He shouldn't discuss things as if they are close to fact when they aren't.

And definitely don't make like you know better than Disney does about its choices, especially if you aren't directly involved and are 19.

But he hasn't always been. There are obviously fans of his who feed him some knowledge as much as they know. And so he gets some scoops. But we all know how reliable front line CMs are, and he at times parrots bad info.

He touted special info about SWL... but almost all of it was already revealed here by our insiders. The one thing that was unique to his source was that there were going to be shoulder- adopt-a-porgs. Which never came to be.

He also gets into wild guess territory, which, anyone with more complete knowledge of WDW wouldn't be guessing, e.g., a new World Showcase parade. That kind of thing is the vlogger version of clickbait.

If he participated more here and was more wary of other sources, he'd be much better at vetting the info he receives. But, he decided to storm off. Compare that to Jack of DSNY Newscast who started off like Brayden, but learned from here what sources can and can't be trusted. Jack doesn't try to break inside information like Brayden does, but he does do a slick job of graphically presenting good intel with appropriate sourcing.
That is quite possibly the best anyone has articulated the difference between many of these lifestylers/vloggers.

Not just ineffective, but actually worse in the case of a prolonged stoppage such as the topic of this thread. The gondolas would become greenhouses like a car in the parking lot if they had air conditioning on board. They would be much hotter and stuffier because there would be no movement of air.
one only need look at the gondola incident and nobody was really complaining how seriously hot it was. By comparison the monorail lost power a few weeks ago and consequently no A/C, at about the same time of night, people had to open emergency hatches.

Plus Jack has the accent thing going for him. 😍

It gives his vlogs a definite charm!

Beyond that, Jack tends to make his vlogs more inclusive, where someone like Brayden is morphing into a "I know this and you don't" mentality, which is becoming increasingly off-putting.
I love Brayden’s enthusiasm, and wow for a 20 (?) year old, he’s taking huge steps on his own; but for sure the tone of his YT videos has changed in the past month or so since he moved to Orlando ... and not changed for the better.

I have great hopes that he drops the macho tone, and goes back to being his former sweet self. Time will tell.

Watching Braydon's most recent video on this subject - he's quite correct on many issues.
I see no insanity.
Just follow him on Twitter. He’s wrong more than he is right (“you heard it here first! The gondola won’t be opening again without A/C!”). He has zero knowledge of how large corporations work (“they saved some money on automated turntables at the stations so they can get bigger bonuses!”) and takes information he likely got from front line CMs (“the castle will become rose gold!”) as gospel, all so he can seem legit and “break news.” He reports on these things with complete certainty. His ego has gotten the best of him, sadly, even as it relates to people who have been doing this way longer than him (“I won’t go to WDW Magic anymore! They don’t know anything!”)

My personal favorite is that he steals Disney merch designs and sells them as basically his, then gets mad when people call him on it.

True nightmare. With the demand I can’t believe they haven’t doubled the fleet by now.
They’re in the last cm who drive me said they are in the process of refreshing their fleet to 2019/20 vehicles but they aren’t expanding.

This is my problem. He's wrong 90% of the time and reports news from front line CMs like it's a fact from some "insider" source. It's all then covered in this over-confident veneer as if he knows better than anyone.
The solution is simple... ignore them into oblivion

Yet there are like a dozen people here all talking with first hand experience how awful he is. Unplug...
