    Sad No Reindeer Roundup?

    The latest buzz from Circle D is that Santa won't be bringing his reindeer along this year. What gives?? Could this could be the end of the Big Thunder Ranch Area as we know it? Is the BTR area doomed?

    That would be sad if it turned out to be true.

    This year they've been making huge strides in how they're using BTR, and guests ARE finding it. It's such a nice oasis from the rest of the park that it would be sad to see it eliminated.

    Maybe it has something to do with the other rumor that they will now be serving reindeer meat at Big Thunder BBQ.

    There are lots of ideas (some more realistic/likely than others) for park "expansion" in this area. So perhaps it is "doomed". Or destined for better things. To make an omelette, you gotta break some eggs ....

    From what I heard, it has to do with the continuing stricter safety enforcement. It was basically going to have to have been a fully enclosed pen (the fence was going to have to be rather high) to have the reindeer there. So rather than that ugly thing, they just went with no reindeer.

    If true, this would ........ eh, suck. At lease no one came up with idea to strap antlers onto the goats.

    I don't believe anything until I've heard from Disney directly.

    I hope Reindeer Roundup sticks around!
    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.

    They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based on… if something is new, I reject it immediately because it’s frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.
