Re: Flamingo Bay

The idea that a fifth gate in Orlando would be a money tree is not guaranteed. I have yet to read an idea for a theme park that really stands out.

Re: Volcano Bay Coming?

Disney has the luxury of space to create a true resort feeling. Universal will be land constrained so its potential to challenge Disney will probably be limited. Still, it appears they want to create the opportunity to split a family vacation with [more]

Re: Things That Made Me Say Hmmmmm

Great report Fuskie, Thanks.

Re: "Into the Woods"

I worry a bit about this film also but at $40 million I guess I am OK. My concerns are different then esxokm however.

ESPN Dominating Digital Media

As we have been discussing ESPN and how it will do when the world goes streaming, I think this article shows how ESPN who not that long ago was just one in the pack in digital media is now dominating. This of course if very good news for the [more]

Re: $1.5 Billion or More for My Magic+

On Fuskie's comment - I think it is costing the company more then it expected (many sources have revealed this) but in the long haul it will probably pay off. However, the Disneyland is next talk has completely stopped so that's a sign the company [more]

Re: Post-Cable Era Here?

30 years ago, there was plenty of sports programming available free over the air, so why pay for it?

15 years ago, the Detroit hockey team's games were broadcast over the air. Now they are exclusively carried on cable and satellite

Re: Post-Cable Era Here?

Steve,

You are referring to the current model not the a la carte model. The current model came to be because a pay model failed in sports. In many cities in the early days of TV they tried to get people to pay an annual fee to get a teams [more]

Re: Post-Cable Era Here?

I think what a lot of people here are missing is demographics. Young people are not hooking up to cable at large rates while those over 50 stay tuned to cable at a 90% rate.

Re: Disney's Marshall Plan

Perhaps the park should be closed and the real estate sold. Does anyone know how much revenue the park brings in for Disney?

No but what I do know is Disney does not have the right to make that decision on their own.
