    Kinda like AT&T no longer sponsors Indiana Jones Adventure and yet they still have the sign that says "True Rewards await those who choose wisely". It's merely business and probably a lack of actual income to warrant the need for that sort of advertising. It's really just simple business practices that are unrelated to the actual attraction itself.

    This prob explains why the Energizer posters that lined the hallway when you exit the ride are come and back are the original posters that reature Star Wars destinations!

    Yay! Energizer's presence at Star Tours was easily the most obtrusive institutional patronship in Disneyland's history.

    For Disneyland, I have to agree.

    For WDW, it has to be the FedEx sponsorship of Space Mountain. How did they get Disney to agree to give up that much real estate?

    Would it not make sense that M&M's be the current Star Tours sponsor?

    M&M's was the predecessor to Energizer, but Disney formed a strategic alliance with Nestle, which was much more far-reaching than that, which M&M's/Mars could provide.

    One of the advantages to M&M's, though, is that it is a private company, so it doesn't have to subject itself to the same rigorous scrutiny public companies might.

    I don't think Lucas or ILM would make a good sponser. One of the advantages of sponsering is getting free advertising for your product, but what product does ILM have to offer to the public besides their movies. The general populace doesn't need special effects jobs.


    An M&M's sponsership would be great because of their already existing ties with Star Wars. They must have ties with Disney too, if they are putting out POTC M&M's toys.

    What do sponsers do and how do they benefit?
