I apologise if this is in the wrong forum board.
Hi, this is my first post.
I am a proud Disneyphile, as I'm sure everyone else is here. I am not really affected as deeply as many other people like me by most things wrong with the Walt Disney Company, and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts because I have only ever visited Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort Paris - it seems most problems lie with the Disneyland Resort.
But I know quite a great deal about both parks in the Resort, despite never setting foot in either. And I don't think Disney's California Adventure should be given the honour of 'Disney park' status - especially when you take a look at the other side of the world and at Tokyo Disneysea. OK, so people say that DCA is so poor in terms of comparison with TDS because the Oriental Land Co. were willing to let the Imagineers have a much bigger budget - and they are absolutely correct. But it seems that people are forgetting that the Walt Disney Company are generating more pure net profit in a month than the Oriental Land Co. in quadruple that.
They have the talent (we have seen what the Imagineers can do when they have the right money), and they have too much money to know what to do with it. So why are they producing bog-standard showcases of imported Disney attractions? Sometimes I think we would be better off with the Walt Disney Company selling their parks and resorts to companies like the Oriental Land Co., who take the same look out on things as Walt Disney himself - who borrowed out his own life insurance to get Disneyland off the ground.
I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but it is a subject close to my heart and I wanted to talk to other Disneyphiles about it.
