Re: Obama Delay Killed Foley

Whether its Bush on 9/11 or Obama in this case its to me very sad and almost very un-American imo to accuse a President of intentionally of betraying his country.

Re: C'mon, its time for some magical discounts!

I totally agree on Autopia. It was a cool ride in the late 50's, but today is just dated. And huge. Really huge. It's bigger than Fantasyland. I would love to see it yanked and and the land used for better attractions. Plus, the Boatopia loading [more]

Well you need to make it to Anaheim one of these days. Yes its much smaller but it doesn't have less stuff and while I love Orlando I like the more compact environment of Anaheim also. For example want to switch parks just exit one [more]

Re: Is Shangai Late and Over Budget?

Re: C'mon, its time for some magical discounts!

If they keep it up, there isn't going to be anything left of what was there when I was there in 63. The plastic house was torn down in 67, I remember pix of it in the newspaper, and the trouble they had breaking it up.

Re: C'mon, its time for some magical discounts!

Given that there is not really an off-season anymore at Disneyland, I think the correct play is to raise the prices on the various annual passes until the number sold starts to drop a bit. There is obviously pricing power here that isn't being [more]

Re: C'mon, its time for some magical discounts!

I agree that discounting during the slower seasons still occur and for good reason. But to me 30% room discount isn't really a sale as they can always just say whatever is the price and of course at any hotel the lower season prices are going to less [more]

Re: C'mon, its time for some magical discounts!

I'll have to go with Fuskie on this one. I don't know as much about Florida but I can tell you in Anaheim they for sure don't need any "real" discounting.

Re: Amazon Blocks the Captain

I am still a bit confused. Even though pre-sale messages were taken off, what about when the release date comes? Is Amazon refusing to stock the title if it doesn't get a certain price? Or, as one article points out, is Amazon merely denying the [more]

ESPN is a business model that a few deep pockets have tried to topple for years. So far, ESPN is still king. If the SEC investment can be turned into a money maker, the future earnings at ESPN will be only bigger than before.

Re: What's That Doing Here?

Then Disney would be slammed as a greedy corporate behemoth that has lost its way.

Hmm nobody said it to them during the "Lost" Auction. Nobody says it when they sell "Cells" from their cartoons.
