    I looove history, and I found the main part of the movie okay, but that MONTAGE!

    Re: Golden Dreams Official last show on March 22

    With all due respect, Walt Jr., I could not posssibly disagree with you more about this Disney 1990's era PC piece of garbage (yes, I know that DCA opened in 2001). I know this is not the debate lounge, but caucasians were responsible for California's growth too, despite the overt and subtle suggestions in the film that all my predecessors did was enslave and conquer. I saw it once, and to me it pretty much summed up the DCA experience in the early years. Good riddance.

    And if Eisner was interested in not offending anyone, he failed. The film was offensive to me.

    Re: Golden Dreams Official last show on March 22

    ^ You must have missed half of the movie. Golden Dreams is billed as the story of people, their culture, and their dreams that helped shape California.

    You really need to re-watch Golden Dreams, either that or you are just letting hatred for Eisner and DCA get in the way of enjoying the majestic piece of artistic imagery that it is, and I'll tell you why.

    Please try to tell me that the following scenes don't portray Caucasian people and their own struggles to bring their dreams to reality in California...

    1) The Gold Rush Scene, the tale of the miners coming with dreams of wealth and prosperity, a dream that was never fully realized.

    2)Yosemite, the story of John Muir's dream to turn Yosemite into a national park. A Scottish Immigrant, but "caucasian" none the less, won't you agree?

    3)Hollywood, the story of Eastern European Immigrants who wanted to bring a new medium of entertainment to California.

    4)Bringing the Water to California, the story of Bill Mullholand fulfilling his dream to find a way to get more water to the City of LA.

    5)The Great Depression, the story of all of the displaced farm families who traveled to California in search of better work and pay during the great depression and great dust bowl.

    6)50's/60's/70's. People of all different races are beginning to come together, the California dream is finally being realized, and the 70's bring an era with young people struggling for Peace.

    7) The Creation of Apple. Enough Said.

    All these different examples and you claim that Golden Dreams does nothing but say that caucasians only conquered and enslaved??? You must have been sleeping!

    Now for the rest of the movie, it portrays the tough moments migrants had to face when coming to California.But you can't whitewash history, to be angry at this movie for showing these segments is like saying them to completely erase them from California's History, but it was part of the challenges that people faced when fulfilling their dreams in California.

    All The scenes, the Chinese railroad workers, the Japanese Immigrants, the Spanish with the Native Americans. They all happened, don't be angry for it, it was a part of history, and it is being kept in the story, not left out. Because Golden Dreams is the movie about everyone's stories.

    And to those comments on the montage at the end. The song is extremely inspirational, it makes my family cry at the end. It is gorgeous.

    The negative comments towards this montage as a laughing, jokable part of the movie really shows your immaturity and downright blatant rudeness. I would like you all to go back and please find anything that should be laughed about in that montage, and please share it. Because you are laughing at a tribute to hundred's of people who have fulfilled their own dreams, please respect them.

    And please respect Golden Dreams, because regardless about what you say, there is no possible way to change the fact that it is a tough, but beautiful lesson about how far we have come today.

    ^^^ ^^^ ^^^

    Walt, I really respect your opinions above, very well stated and thought out.

    I'ts been almost seven years, so maybe I should see it again.

    I still don't agree with you about Golden Dreams at least as I remember it.

    If I was angry with anything, it was with the PC fever that swept Disney in the 90's, in its films and at the parks.

    I admire your passionate defense, and I am willing to admit that I probably should take another look. Since I won't be there before it closes, it'll have to be on DVD, I guess.

    ^ If it hopefully ever comes out on DVD, I'll really appreciate you giving it another chance. It really does have a heart, you just have to be open to it. =)
