Those princesses could be Cinderella's step-sisters. No Fastpass joke?

Hey now, I authored one of those points. What does that say about *my* writing?

I'm actually watching Arrested Development right now. So good. On a side note what type of influence could Netflix have on theme parks.

A reminder to everyone that our Rules for Writers prohibit comments that attack or demean other writers on the site. I've been a bit lax about enforcing that aggressively against registered members, but it's crack-down time starting today. I've deleted several comments so far.

Thank you to everyone who abides by our rules for writers and helps to keep the conversations here informative, welcoming, and, on a good day, funny!

I made the mistake of actually reading through that whole list on the other website. How hateful and unfunny was that? Not even accurate. The so-called "construction" photo was actually of Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles - which had nothing whatsoever to do with ANY Disney park. The author googled images for Disney and construction, and that's what they came up with, I guess.

I enjoyed the TPI list MUCH better. You're right - if you're a Disney-hater, then stay the heck out of the parks and leave one more space for those of us who can appreciate a wholesome good time!

14. Because you don't have the extra 2 dollars to park this year...

'Bout time, Robert! I'm getting tired of having to defend everyone! ;)

The original list was perhaps the lamest ever put together. But if it keeps people away from DW, awesome. TPI's list was much better.

The rodent problem reminds me of a great Mickey Mouse Club satire in the early years of Saturday Night Live by Belushi & company. They were all dressed up in rat costumes singing a tune to M I C K E Y M O U S E, only their words were "R I C K E Y R A T, Why? Because we're rats".

Rob, I remember that so well that the last time my wife and I went to WDW we were singing it there (quietly to avoid getting the rodent police after us ;+) The lyrics we remember are:

"R-I-C...see you in the sewer, sucker!
K-E-Y...why? Because we're vermin!

And this is from an old guy who remembers the original Mickey Mouse Club, I mean the original black-and-white series on our black-and-white tv in the afternoon after school.

Yes, the original on black & white with Annette Funicello. A galaxy far far away. Glad to see the original words. I didn't recall them as well as you. I, too, sing the song at WDW as an ode to Bob Iger and the TDO team.

Yeah, my reason made it! (With a much edited, pithy and more elegant phraseology)

Was the original article a real article or something more than lines of sarcasm? Something about it makes me feel like its not real. Almost like it was written and posted The Onion.

I'll never understand why people who do not enjoy WDW continually bash it! If you don't like it,go find something else to do that you do enjoy. Life's short so please 'stand clear of the doors' and get out of my way!
