    Angry WHY is TDL being cared for more then The ORIGINAL DLR?

    WHY

    is TDL getting more care then the ORIGINAL DLR?? it seems like more then parades and entertainment, but also holiday celebrations/decorations, and overall quality.... im not BASHING our DL,because in comparison to umm lets see.. (insert non-disney park here), its MUCH better and ALOT more magical but what i AM saying is in comparison with each other, TDL seems better to some extent.

    I do have a dream of becoming the president of TDA, and completely upgrading the quality that is the DLR.(yes i acknowledge those of you who are giggling as reading that) but i do believe i am a VERY smart "kid" "child" "young man".

    enough with that but, what are your thoughts in the comparison between DLR and TDL

    it's America, we are pleased with anything we get.
    as for Tokyo, they are hard to please.

    tda may not be the best management, but they are getting better. 7 years ago, the probably wouldnt order 2 new e-tickets(if they happen[which I hope{PLEASE GOD LET THEM HAPPEN!}]). our management is a heck of a lot better than TDO. but were getting to the OLC level. slowly but surely

    Simple. The Oriental Land Company owns TDL, not Disney Parks. The OLC pours a lot of money into those parks, and they just have the Imagineers make the parks for them. OLC and Disney are two different companies, with different priorities, problems, and mindsets. Right?

    We may not get as many parades and new attractions, but the Disneyland Resort is taken care of VERY well. The constant refresh of attractions and overall park atmosphere in the past few years is wonderful. No complaints here.

    TDL isn't a Disney OWNED park. Disney only manages it.

    OLC puts their own money into everything.

    Re: WHY is TDL being cared for more then The ORIGINAL DLR?

    Some months back IIRC, MC'er WorldDisney posted a killer writeup on TDL vs. DLR -- a post that pretty much said it all IMO. (Danged if I can find it now, though.)

    "With the acquisition of Marvel and now of Lucasfilm,
    Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
    imagination or art. All you need is a brand."

    Ahhh no DCA bashing!

    And Thanks for letting me know TDL is owned by OLC not Disney, That does make sense, also i would agree Disneyland, the one, the only the original, is best up kept, just not as constantly new, plus we are short on space.. thats why i wish disney would auction off some old junk to Disney fanatics like us, get major bucks and buy more land around DLR, and expand. which i know is easier said than done, and would cost, ALOT but hey if i were president of TDA i'd take a pay cut for DLR to grow..

    As far as the Disney owned theme parks. DLR is the MOST cared for theme park (between HKDL, WDW, DLRP and DLR).

    Bingo!
    It's not owned by Disney Parks.
    Disney has the rights to it's characters etc
    but the maintenance and ride creations of the park is not done by Disney Company.

    To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.

    Different strokes for different folks. Japanese standards are much higher than American standard. Things have to be better.

    DL still blows TDL out of the water. Although, TDS compared to DCA...

    Re: WHY is TDL being cared for more then The ORIGINAL DLR?

    Alright, in short it is because TDL's management, the Oriental Land Company, is lightyears ahead of Disney management. They are willing to spend just about anything to get what they want.

    Also (and sadly) it is a difference in culture. The Japanese really do love their Disney park, and they are willing to do their part to keep it clean and maintained (as in not litter, grafitti).

    Not even. Tokyo Disney Resort has much better maintenance on everything they do. For example their Tomorrowland:


    From FlickR

    Tokyo Disneyland's Tomorrowland may look very, very outdated however, saying that, it is spotless and in pristine condition. For all we know, it could have opened yesterday it is so finely polished.

    But the same goes for everything at Tokyo Disney Resort. They have an incredible maintenance schedule! Everything usually goes down for a 3 month period every 3 or so years to make sure it is in its best shape. Not to mention the shorter annual, and sometimes semi-annual closures to keep the rides in their best shape.

    People in Tokyo like different things than people in America. That and the fact that OLC owns TDL. Plus, I don't see anything wrong with Disneyland in Anaheim. It's the original Disney park and it's being maintained pretty dang well in my opinion.
