    Disney admits removing the dlh waterfall was a mistake! (April Fools Joke)

    Disney Spokesperson Mia Lize spoke at a recent conference -

    We regret to inform the public, that our decision to remove the Horeshoe Falls, that resided under the Wonder tower, was done entirely at our lack of judgment, and top executives who put more control into the hands of accountants, and less into the hands of creatives.

    We recognized there were some infrastructure needs that had to be addressed, and this hidden gem could have been totally re-worked to blend in with the "frontier" theming of the hotel tower above it. But at the end of the day - We didn't care, and we just didn't want to spend the money. We still echo, to some degree, the mantra once held by past executives, such as Paul Pressler and Michael Eisner. "Cheaper Quality is okay." "Downsize it baby!"

    We apologize for making up stories, like the falls take up more energy, when the reality is, the new slides with the retro look will spend just as much electricity, and water as the previous falls did. On a side note, we do find it entertaining so many people believe everything we tell them.

    We also apologize for the reason - It did not work into the renovation's more simplified format, for today's more simplified America. Our founder, Walt Disney, did point to one important philosophy of: Hidden Gems waiting to be discovered. One important motto we casually threw aside.

    But rest assured ... we are working on a compromise, at least - The "Natures Wonderland" geyser plan.

    We look forward to serving our loyal customers. For we do not wish to alienate them.
























    ........... oh well ........ nice thought anyway.

    LOL

    I'm probably one of the biggest proponents of those falls, around.


    For dramatic effect ... I put the topic header in caps ... but for some reason .. it went down into lower case. Oh well!

    Nope, I had a great day. I slipped on the wet stairs and fell the first time I saw them. Scratched my arm pretty bad.

    So I am content with them replacing the area with a tribute to Natures Wonderland.

    OUCH! That's not so nice! Sorry that happened. As you may remember .. one of my "bone of contentions" in our many discussions on this .... was that they could have used non-skid tiles. Or a non-skid surface that could have been sprayed on. And your slip would have easily been avoided. Again .. sorry to hear that.
