    The Independant "Bye Bye Matt Ouimet?" Thread

    there are rumors fly fast and furious around the internet (on multiple sites) about Matt leaving DL to head up the WDW resort? What does everyone think? Rumor? An ounce of truth? Has anyone heard anything from a source other than the internet?

    (Please post no external links in this thread)

    Really? Like, who's saying stuff like that?
    (jk)

    (And I wonder if this will be allowed?)
    We have discussing this (and other topics) on the thread thread, but, as the OP requests, let's keep this thread about CM Matt and CM Greg.

    Also (my request), please don't post in the linked thread about CM Matt or CM Greg. It's possible that no one will ever read it, and that would be a shame.

    Answers in order of question (I took the liberty of numbering your questions, as well as creating a folder for each, put into hanging files):
    1. Yes, there are.
    2. I think he'll leave. The power of the family, combined with the power of the real estate market here, are too great. Expect much of his Florida group to leave as well. That might be a bigger hit than just CM Matt leaving.
    3. Yes, they're rumors.
    4. About a pound of truth.
    5. I haven't, but it's the internet. It's never wrong.

    The first part of Matt's last name is Oui. Oui is French for yes. Yes is what Matt will say when asked, Would you like to head our Florida division?

    How do I know this is true? The internets never lie. NEVAR!!!

    I think there is a lot of truth to this. Just in case anyone didn't read the article, the biggest one is on a website with a big fat guy named Jim and there is also a little section on a website that Al Lutz used to be on. This is a big opportunity and like Sediment said, his family is going to be a big influence on him.

    I dont want to be the obtuse one here, but you guys do realise that WDW needs somebody like Matt to fix the mamoth problems a hell of a lot more that DL does at the moment. The MK is looking horrible at the moment.

    Re: The Independant "Bye Bye Matt Ouimet?" Thread

    Gee, do people understand what "No External Links" are....

    As far as I understand, that means no links than to other MiceChat and MiceAge pages.

    If you included links, could you PLEASE remove them, and the mention of the other sites. Alas, there is an issue about said links, if you want to know more, go to the Community Outpost section thread that is linked in Post #2...

    Re: The Independant "Bye Bye Matt Ouimet?" Thread

    I have a funny feeling this thread is about to the merged thread #7...

    Anyway, there have been three Disney related websites (maybe more, but three I know of) that have mentioned it, the first site was first, but the second site came out shortly thereafter and stated they got the same basic info from a TOTALLY different source, and multiple people have stated that (go to the link in post #2 to read the info, or go back a couple of pages if this thread is already merged).

    As for Matt, yes he has done a lot of positive things in the last couple of years, and wouldn't be named President of WDW be a promotion with a payraise, and another step up the ladder??? If so, then isn't that the best move for Matt, and if WDW is having problems, and Matt has been a proven problem solver, then isn't it the best move for the company also?

    Once again, if you placed a link, or quoted a link to external sites, could you PLEASE remove it! TIA

    Re: The Independant "Bye Bye Matt Ouimet?" Thread

    It'll be interesting too see what Matt does at WDW. Nevertheless, it would be IMMENSELY disappointing for me since I live in California and take frequent trips to DLR and after my underwhelming trip to WDW this past summer I don't plan on going back.

    It's incredibly interesting that such a commotion is being caused by an article written by someone who is known to completely fabricate things and exaggerate things whenever possible. Sure, the author of the original column that started this rumor does have some truth in his columns, but how much is real here?

    I really don't know what to believe...

    I don't know Matt Ouimet's personal life or history, so if his family is really missing life back in Florida, then this rumor might just have some merit, however, who knows if Disney even wants to move him around again, after seeing the miracles he's worked at Disneyland and has started to work at DCA I have a feeling TDA would be reluctant to see him go. Nevertheless, I'm sure WDW wishes they could have him over there right now.

    It would definately be a hard blow to the DLR to see him go and we might get a standstill in creative development around the resort with his departure.

    Cant he just run both places? Please?

    Both links have been removed (although the mentions to the sites are still there). Feel free to still 'publically flog' me if you wish.
