Congratulations to the Chicago Cubs for ending their 108-year championship drought! (And condolences to the fans of the Cleveland Indians. But look at it this way; you only have 40 years to go.)  So, with Chicago’s long wait over, following is a list of Disney related things we probably won’t see for 108 years.

  • An effective overall theme for DCA’s Hollywood Land
  • Someone in North America who cares about Duffy
  • No park admission price increase for one year
  • A 3rd gate for Anaheim
  • The release of Song of the South
  • Consumer Products finally gets rid of the last of the Lone Ranger merchandise
  • MagicBands eliminated as a “failed experiment”
  • Something done with the Rocket Rods/PeopleMover track
  • People forget there was ever anything called “The Black Hole”
  • Imagineering comes up with anyone who can design on the fly like Bob Gurr
  • The fans finally forgive Paul Pressler
  • Walt Disney studios goes one full year without releasing a sequel
  • Singing of “It’s a Small World” punishable by life in prison
  • The Venetian Resort opens at Disney World
  • A little girl says she is not sure she really likes Frozen
  • Antarctica Disney opens to ensure there is a Disney park on every continent
  • Contrary to Walt’s prediction, Disneyland is completed


  • Everyone acknowledges it will be at least another 108 years for the happiest place on earth to no longer make people happy

About mike Jacka

Mike lives in Phoenix, Arizona and has two claims to fame. The first is that he was born the day Disneyland opened. So, yes, he is old. The second is that he is the funniest internal auditor in the profession of internal auditing. Yes, a very low bar. Yes, this is akin to being the sanest person in the asylum. So why not combine those two great achievements? Why not combine that love for Disneyland with a slightly offbeat sense of humor? I guess we'll all find out.
