    Matt Ouimet Overrated?

    Now, I'm somewhat new to MiceChat and I thought that I'd raise this question based on my observations of various threads. Clearly, Matt has done some tremendous work for the Disneyland Resort since he took control. The restoration of the park has been remarkable, and the change in direction that seems to be taking place is admirable and promising. Yet the "collective orgasm" over Matt that seems to be occurring on this board has me believing that maybe he is becoming a tad bit overrated. The thread where everyone made "Ouimetland" logos and "Thank You Matt" graphics. The comparison of Matt to Walt and the suggestion of Matt running the company. These all struck me over-congratulatory. Any thoughts?

    Yes, well, no. I mean, we can be silly no matter what the case, but I don't think Matt is overratted. The thing is, we finally have Management that cares about Disneyland and cares about us. You cant overrate that.

    Hes just done a fantastic job for Disneyland, especially since we had those other two devils in the past running things. If he has such a passion for his work, why NOT make him head of the company?

    He's not overrated, he just the DL fan's version of FDR. Disneyland's been in a Great Depression, and he's just the guy to give it the New Deal. Of course FDR also did have a hand in WWII, but we'll set that aside for this post.

    Because running Disneyland and running Disney are two very different jobs.

    You can say that again. Oh wait, you already did. I agree that the thread with the "Thank You Matt T-Shirts" is a WAY WAY WAY too much. Also, the "Cast Member Matt" babble irks me too. Don't get me wrong, I am impressed by what he has undertaken, but I am also not insane. I know that in the end, he is still a suit in a corperation and he's still my boss. So I take all this praise with a rather large grain of salt.

    At least he has done something positive for DL. He has my loyalty until he stops putting DL on the to-do list.

    I am just curious as to why you would say that he is overrated- to me, overrated means you have not done what everyone says you have, or you have not lived up to expectations. In my opinion, this does not describe Matt Ouimet at all.

    Maybe I chose the wrong word. I think that a certain amount of praise that is being heaped on him is excessive.

    I guess maybe we are a little over-enthusiastic because it looked like there was no hope for Disneyland. He seems to have provided this hope, but I will agree with you on the fact that it remains to be seen if he really is the savior we all give him credit for being. Time will tell and the way he administers the park after the 50th will speak volumes as to his legacy as the president of Disneyland.
