    I just find it hilarious that Matt is being praised, even deified for doing his job.

    I wonder if the previous regime hadn't been so bad if Matt would still be getting all of this praise.

    Nothing against Matt, I'm sure he's a great guy, and I agree he has done some great things, but it's still too early to tell if this is just a show for the 50th or if good changes will be around to stay.

    I'm sorry, but for me, Matt is the closest thing I have seen to Walt because all I have known are Pressler and Harris ... I am not trying to deify him, I am just trying to show my support.

    Hellooo!! That's the whole point... DL needed rescuing! And he's done a superb job. But of course we Disneyphiles are a finicky bunch... we can turn on him in an instant if he starts screwing up!

    Those are great!!! I wasn't sure what i was going to think, but great job! Totally over the top.

    I'd love to know what CM Matt thinks. If I get one of these (and I plan to) my mission will be to have Matt sign it!

    While you do get him to sign something for me too. Like my new hire paperwork.

    Honestly, I bet he wouldn't be that into it. While I'm sure he's flattered... it does after all take away from DISNEYland and the logo would have people wondering WtF?? Especially in the parks. I think his frame of mind is, it's really all about Disneyland, and not himself.

    I'm sure he'd be happier if we thanked him in a much less publicly visible way!!

    But I think they are hilarous and I'm wearing one to the 50th!!

    Plus, like I've said before, I think most of what Matt is doing is begging higher-ups for money.

    I bet all these theming and maintenance enhancements are Greg Emmer's work, since Matt isn't really a theme park guy and Greg's been a CM since way back when. Although Matt's a bright guy, I don't think he'd really know the whole Tomorrowland legacy enough to make all the nostalgic changes that have being going on there lately.

    I think it's a matter of the new team at Disneyland coming in and going to management and pointing out how much of their revenue comes from the theme parks and that with the 50th Anniversary coming, they have a chance to put Disney center stage, that they'd better invest some money back into the parks to keep that revenue flowing.

    I think it's over the top, but I do appreciate that they have gotten positive changes done very quickly.

    I do not understand why some people are so slow to praise and quick to criticize. While I have to say that I was one of the ones who condemned Pressler and Harris, I am also going to freely praise Matt. He deserves it. Although some are questioning his intimate involvement in all the improvements in DL over the last year, I think it is his VISION that is key here. Without a vision of what DL could be, no true progress can be made. He also has produced results. Vision controls the outcome. Pressler's vision was a cheap shopping mall. He almost achieved it. Matt's vision looks to be a truly world renown amusement park. I will not hesitate to applaud him.

    I never criticized. I think Matt's doing a good job. It's just WAY over the top, and I'm sure Matt would agree.
