When Steve Jobs passed away, Disney had all the flags at the Disney parks at half-staff. That includes the American flags as well as the "Disney" flags. However, they did not do this for Annette Funicello, an icon and Disney legend. Annette was like a daughter to Walt. She has done SO MUCH for this company and has been very very loyal. I think its a disgrace that Disney has never honored her with any type of tribute in the park (window on main st etc), I also think its a shame that she never even got the flags lowered to half-staff like billionaire executive Steve Jobs got.
Annette was a beautiful person inside and out, she loved Walt as well as the company he founded, she deserves to be honored at the park where she performed many times and actually contributed to the success of through the Mickey Mouse Club. I'll get off my soap box but I am just really upset that Disney seemingly forgot about this amazing legend that has done so much for them. It makes me seriously sick and sad.
Yes Bob Iger's comments in regards to her death were really touching and actually very nice. But it isnt enough (in my opinion) considering how much she has done.
