The one time I visited Florida the tram spiels were, quite literally, a refreshingly short "here we go, hold on!"
Here in the land of the hyper-litigious, however, I will do absolutely anything to avoid the half-hour of disclaimers, rules and provisos that bleat over the tram's intercoms (besides, walking is good for you).
Given the extraordinary and absurd measures Disney goes to in order to accommodate the diminishing capacity of Southlanders' self-reliance, is it conceivable that the next measure taken in Disneyland to assuage the tyranny of the lowest common denominator might be to eliminate characters altogether to avoid further lawsuits?
It has practically become a pastime among those who file lawsuits for a living: incite one's offspring to behave belligerently towards a character in costume, capture their reaction with a camera, and then call whichever shyster catches one's fancy via daytime television advertisements.
The latest opportunist with dollar signs twinkling in his eyes is Manuel Carlos, who laughingly captured his daughters tugging on the arms of the White Rabbit and the character's reaction, fed the video to the network news and declared his intention to file suit. After all, who doesn't relish the chance to burnish their indignation and claim disenfranchisement?
I know that what I propose as Disney's potential, eventual reaction is a nightmarish, worst-case scenario, but who that has followed the Park's history hasn't seen an unending trend of curbing the fun for the majority to compensate for irresponsible, criminal, asinine or downright sociopathic behavior?
