    Ah, yes - I seem to recall some posts like that. Thanks for the clarification!

    Hey.
    Disney employees. Quit the browser program, and get back to AutoCad or Illustrator or Photoshop or whatever program you're paid to use in your job. Frontierland and Tomorrowland are in desperate need of your attention.
    Sincerely,
    The people who ultimately pay your rent.

    Power of the people!
    I was being silly about the subs and the walk through but after darkbeer published some pics of the Mark Twain's rotting wood floors, the refurbishment was scheduled.

    Coincidence? I don't think so.

    Well, its obvious, other companies forums (Merlin) are littered with readers, but they very rarely post...

    Re: Do you think any BIG names come on to the boards?

    Whether or not they read and whether or not posts on here have any sway are two entirely different subjects. While they could potentially be related it is entirely possible that threads and posts are disregarded entirely.

    If an individual is on here looking for support of a new show or attraction then chances are they will simply take the positive comments... just like Disney currently spins the various surveys.

    I will say that I, and other members on here, have been contacted in the past in regards to various posts. So individuals within Walt Disney Co do read various posts and threads... but I'm not sure if any of that perusing translates into actual swaying power.

    Some people that work at Disney have MiceChat accounts? Thats cool. But I guess they always have to ignore some ideas. Why can't everything be at Disneyland?

Wouldn't you be curious about what people are saying about your work in public? I would.

    Executives who don't have an emotional investment or particular interest in their product (or consumers) still tend to keep tabs on talk through employees (or even whole divisions) who surf the net for them. Increasingly, major companies are finding the talk on the net important enough not just to monitor but to influence the conversation.
    Those interested executive and managers, who don't have time, can have people provide relevant posts and threads. Even I don't have enough time to waste rummaging through all the posts on these boards (I don't see how some here are able to be productive elsewhere as it appears that they spend an inordinate amount of time posting here and/or "researching" at the parks). And I pretty much just skim just a few threads a day.

    As for actually posting here, I don't know that ANY executive would be doing that. It appears that there are some CM's that are able to provide some innocent posts without repercussions. I only know of one individual on another board who flaunted his access with some proprietary information. I don't believe he works for the company anymore.

    I always thought there was something funny about that Not_Steve_Martin guy...

    As long as they aren't breaking any rules here, that's fine with us. Each individual member of this site is fully able to sift through the info they read and decide what is true, what is false, and what is propaganda.
    Reeeeeaaaaaallly? Now that is interesting! I wonder if anyone in this thread is a Disney executive.

    For some reason I imagine Mike Eisner regularly visiting and crying quietly to himself listening to Evanescence.
