What do you think about Walt Disney World's new TV commercial?
Lots of folks in Florida are talking about this TV commercial from Walt Disney World, promoting the resort's $99 four-day, four-park ticket for Florida residents:
The debate is open, in the comments....
Somewhere in Missouri, someone (had BETTER be) standing and applauding.
Do want to note that Disney's running the same commercial, with a tweaked script, in California in support of the 2fer deal at Disneyland Resort, and some folks don't like the dupe. Thoughts?
I like the idea behind it, but I hope it's just the first of a series featuring different attractions. Imagine ones featuring Pirates, Haunted Mansion, Test Track etc.
I loved it! It made me laugh quite a bit at some parts. I don't see anything wrong with it at all!
I don't know about the rest of the Missouri folks, but this one wishes the actual attraction looked even half as good as this video! Should Disney be sued for false advertising? =)
I nearly caffeinated the Tivo the first time I saw it! It made me LOL out loud! I really do think that Disney has a terrific advertising agency when it comes to their park/resort ads. I haven't been too impressed with their radio spots as a whole, and their casting ads left a lot to be desired, but their resort/ticket/park TV spots have been terrific.
Memo to Mr. Jeffs: With the exception of Pirates, that's a great idea.
Now the rest of the world knows how it feels to be a cast member, stuck in the Jungle rotation for four hours-plus, when the hallucinations kick in....
Being surround by Disney World stuff all day long, it is rare that I get excited about Disney commercials. I love this new Florida Resident commercial. It is really creative!
I am bias but....
I hate to kill the buzz, but this was a big "meh". With that in mind, after seeing it multiple times I would probably hate it. Decent concept, good production, but the jokes could have been much better.
Somehow, the Disneyland commercial sounds soooo much better than the MK one. Wassupwitdat?
My heart? Ewwwww... that's gross!
The boats are not on a rail.
Disneyworld's boats run in a concrete trough, Disneyland's have a guide rail. Trough, track, or rail, what's the difference? Now you are just being grouchy.
From a larger perspective the commercial -- along with last year's release of Weird Al Yankovic's "Skipper Dan" -- solidifies the pop iconographic status of the attraction. Although the ad is aimed at Florida residents, it is an affirmation that the Jungle Cruise is not only one of the Walt Disney Company's signature theme park attractions, but it is so popular as to be recognizable -- and thus suitable fodder for an ad campaign.
And the kiddies love talking animals.
Pirates: $1 billion-plus global box office, plus fourth movie soon.
Actually, Mr. Niles, the correct assessment would have been A pirate movie + Depp = $1 billion-plus global.
FYI - The above totals are for all three Pirates blockbusters combined.
I heard the global receipts were actually only $2,681,667,527.
How can you be so sure of something and be so ------- wrong?!
What debate? That's a great commercial! Fast and funny.
