Disney would never be so callous as to do something like this. And the backlash from something like this would be just amazing that it would quickly be stopped.
May I say it again? Goddam greedy lawyers!
Let’s try to send some comments to Disney and see what happens.Who is with me?
One example was the closure of PI. I know many people who have written letters and there is actually a Save the Adv Club on facebook. They seem quite big on saving the AC so much so that they were verbally yelled at by the VP of the Downtown Disney Area for complaining/protesting. Here is the message I got from them:
Last night, several from this Facebook group reported DTD VP Kevin Lansberry showed up at the Adventurers Club last night and pulled people one by one out of the club who were suspected of passing out handbills with information about the petitions and groups working to save the Adventurers Club.
When Lansberry was later accosted by people who were pissed at hispresence, what he was doing, etc., he jumped on his Segway and zoomed off into the night only to return with even more security personnel, including a bodyguard-type who followed Lansberry throughout the Island.
Three separate guests reported to our program that there wereliterally dozens of Disney security personnel at the AC, alone, lastnight.
Also new last night:
*A new rumor has surfaced which suggests the Walt Disney Company hasnot signed a single contract for the venues it hopes to put up inplace of the AC and other Pleasure Island. FOR ANYONE WHO ONCESUGGESTED THIS EFFORT WAS FUTILE, think again. We have a huge asset in this news. Keep fighting.

(I took out the website so not to publicize them on this forum- Of course their claims might not be true)
A) I find it hard to believe that any of these suits that Lutz described would not be tossed swiftly once filed. Courts really don't stand for much of this stuff.
B) If any of these suits did make it to trial (I've not seen any press reports, and, trust me, these are cases that papers would eat up), I cannot believe that Disney wouldn't use California's malicious prosecution law to nail the lawyers who brought them.
Like I said, I can't wrap my head around this one.
Earlier this year, though, in response to an email I sent praising the service I received at one of the funnel cake shops, I got an actual postal letter in return. The second sentence of this letter is: "It is always a pleasure to hear from guests about their visits to our park."
Quite a difference in attitude, I'd say.
I've asked the nice folks at snopes.com to look into this. Hopefully, they will do so and get to the bottom line.
