    Re: Would you rather have no promotions or decorations?

    I didn't mind it, until those awful swirls were at the entrance tunnels ... that just went to far. Other then that I did enjoy some of the decorations ... especially the silhouettes on the lamps that line Main Street.

    Ditto. We go because it's DISNEYLAND, not because we want to see the latest promotion.

I also do not understand the concept of celebrating a year for 18 months... not great at Math but that number seems a little off. AND you don't turn 50 until you hit the date, I would love to get my paycheck 3 months early, or my tax return 3 months early, but I'm not holding my breath. To address the comment of the "park standing on it's own" it does, they call it "off season" when no one is around to see it. These days they feel everything needs a big promotion and to me it feels less like going to Disneyland and more like going to a used car lot! I love Christmas, but I don't love starring at a tree on NOV 1ST, what happened to Thanksgiving? We go from Halloween to Christmas. I think the only reason we even have Halloween is that people complained about having a tree up on Oct 31st! I do remember when the park was just the park and not dressed up every day of the year.
    well the spray paint worked and brought disney who knows how much money.

    Then they spraypainted everything blue, pretty soon it will be Red for Christmas, who knows it might be green next year for St Patty's... now THAT should be a mandatory month long holiday!

    I for one, enjoy the decorations. As for promotions, I think they're kind of fun. GoofyDaddy, you hit it right on the head--you're the man!

    Re: Would you rather have no promotions or decorations?

    It is not an either or - Either shut up about YOAMD or you will get NO promotions OR decorations.

    I do not object to promotions or decorations conceptually. It's what they are that make them enjoyable/distasteful for me. I enjoy the seasonal decorations (although HalloweenTime is starting to get to be a little TOO over the top) and have enjoyed past promotions. The problem is every once in a while, a stinker of a promotion or decoration slips through. YOAMD was ill-concieved, promoted badly, and didn't connect with the intended audience. Spin the wheel, and come up with a better one... learn from this one and move on.
