    Good point. A lot of people want to ignore the good he did, focus on what he did wrong, and conclude that he was 100% bad for the company.

    He overstayed his welcome for sure, but the Disney company and theme parks we know today may not have survived had it not been for him.

    Plenty to criticize, but let's give the man his due as well.

    I always envisioned a Dark Ride called "The Madness of King Michael," where animatronics would tell his story of being brought in by Roy, the hiring of Katzenberg and Wells, the rise of the studio again, before the power struggles, and the mantra during Eisner's last years of "Everything is marketable."

    maybe a scene of animatronic executives watching figures wheel out the old animation desks, crying out "Michael proclaims CG is where the money/future is at!"

    A person does have his/her sides. That is Michael Eisner. His dark side nearly ruined Disney. That overshadowed his accomplishments. So, no nothing for him.

    The Madness of King Michael sounds like one cool ride that I am sure that the majority of Imagineers would be gleeful to have the opportunity to work on, if they could. As I consider Michael more of a charicature than a real person. The ride would provide the general Disney park guest populace a repreve from the world beyond the berm that is dominated by empty suited ego-freaks.

    Well put. Eisner did produce some solid accomplishments. But they only occurred because he had tons of money to work with....even when Disney was in decline. Disney could have done far worse had Michael not been at the helm. However, I very much agree that his accomplishments were dwarfed by inept failures. He would have taken the company down, and it was time for him to go. The spirit of Walt towers over Eisnerd.

    I was speculating more on it, and you could also apply the 'Madness' storyline to:

    -the windows of the Emporium

    - work out ride vehicles on the old Peoplemover, and have the scenes play out in each of the different buildings.

    Very good/uniquely expressed point Mendez. The team of Eisner, Wells, Katzenberg, and Roy E are to be credited for turning the company around (taking the company out of the disastrous hands of Walt's son-in-law Ron Miller}. But still , it is CEO/Chairman of the Board dictator Eisner that became the new dysfunctional Miller. That said, I also agree wholeheartedly that it is creative, level headed people like Howard Ashman, Peter Schneider, Dick Cook and John Lasseter that represent the Disney Renaissance.

    ORWEN: Frank Wells, on the other hand, was wonderful! It's so sad he died so soon.
    Absolutely right sisters. Frank Wells kept Eisner's "soul-less flaws" side from dominating Disney into the abyss.

    Without Frank Wells at his side, Michael Eisner proved himself to be a detriment to the Walt Disney Company. Any good credited to Michael, really belongs to Roy and Frank.

    I wholeheartedly concur Aladdin. BTW, I love your avatar pic of Aladdin and Genie,,,,or is that Robin Williams turning blue because he missed out on munching down a Snickers bar?
