    Disney vs. Universal

    Now that WDI is gone along with Walt Disney Animation, we can compare Disney to Universal without much difference. They both have a major TV network and a few cable channels that are nothing special, they both dedicate their theme parks to their movies, neither have a traditional animation department or an in-house design team for their parks, and both rely on an outside source for computer animation (Universal's is DreamWorks, Disney's is Pixar).

    Now, ignoring anything Disney has done in the past 60 years (since Disney seems to ignore it), how exactly is Disney better than Universal? I guess when you're making tens of billions of dollars it doesn't matter to the company, but as far as any hope for the future, it's looking bleaker now than when Eisner was in charge. Roy has been paid for his silence, Iger is nothing more than a Eisner puppet, and Matt Ouimet is obsessed with Pixar to a point far beyond excess.

    I almost wish Disney were in dire straits like they were in the 1980's. It's ironic because its Disney's success that has become its undoing. As long as they are making a profit and keeping the shareholders happy, nothing will change unless Iger is replaced by a proactive CEO. Disney's transition has happened so gradually, no one really noticed it until it was too late. I want so badly to believe that Disney will get better, but the fact of the matter is, the executives at Disney are happy with the company and that's a very dangerous thing.

    Roy was never that good anyway, Iger hasn't even begun his term as CEO and you already seem to know his ins and outs, and what else has Ouimet got to be obsessed with, attraction inspiration-wise, that money-making execs would agree with?

    In case you haven't heard, Disney still makes Animated Films. Upcoming feature films include Chicken Little, American Dog, Wilbur Robinson & Repunzel Unbraided (which is animated to look like a traditional film). These are Disney films made by Disney.

    Iger is nothing more than a Eisner puppet
    Like Speedway said, Iger did not even become CEO yet and your critisizing him. Let me say that Iger is not an Eisner puppet. He has his very own way of doing things. A preview into future years is when he destroyed the Strategic Planning Department earlier this year (which was a very good decision).

    and Matt Ouimet is obsessed with Pixar to a point far beyond excess.
    You realize that you just dissed one of the most loved people in the Disney company. Are you blind to what he has done to Disneyland? Look at Disneyland under Pressler and Harriss & look at Disneyland today under Rasulo and Ouimet.

    Re: Disney vs. Universal

    Whoa man! Settle down! That is just way too much hatred for someone who supposedly loves Disneyland. Disney has seen it's share of hard times but it always ends up stronger than before. If there is stuff that you don't agree with, then oh well, life goes on. Plus they can never take away your memories.
