    Where does he get all his info?

    I love his columns, but I'm curious where he gets his info. Is he a CM or a worker there?

    If he told you, he would have to kill you

    Seriously, he can't reveal his sources or they wouldn't be sources anymore, would they? They would be fired.

    you don't ask a magician to reveal how he did it do you? If the sources wanted to be known, I'm sure they'd be the ones writing a column about Disneyland.

    Re: Where does he get all his info?

    First off, Al Lutz does NOT work for the Walt Disney Company in any capacity.

    As for where his info comes from, well, he has friends in many places throughout the company, including some very highly placed individuals.

    The info is gathered from many sources, and then verified by comparing the info and talking to others.

    Of course, he can't say something like "The Project Manager told me that the project will be delayed due to problems.", because the Project Manager could get into trouble. So he cannot reveal the names and/or positions where the info comes from, but his track record speaks for itself.

    Don't think so. Since he is not a Disney employee in any way, Al is not covered by any confidentially agreement. He's a journalist, the only thing Disney can really do is claim libel. But in that case Al would have to be slanderously wrong in his columns, such as if Al came out pointed figures for incidences like the BTMR accidents and made unfounded accusations.

    This is who he gets all his information from:

    Spoiler
    Me.


    j/k j/k, I'm not sure exactly, but obviously from people who work for Disney.

    I didn't literally mean WHO I just meant kinda generally. I know he can't reveal specifics, that's obvious.

    Re: Where does he get all his info?

    Uh Al is not a "journalist", he's more a blogger. At least that's what all of the legit papers call him.

    And speaking of Al, his updates are getting few and far between. I think either his sources are drying up, or Disney is doing some thing right!

    And don't give me that "We do this site for free, how dare you be critical of ... blah blah blah." If you can't stand the heat, get outta the kitchen.

    Or Glendale has been in sort of a limbo while Lasseter was focusing on WDFA in Burbank.

    Things are picking up now, with John beginning to pay more attention to WDI and the parks. Al's updates will also pick up the pace, as a result.

    And Disney still needs lots-o-help in the 'doing something right' department. Jay Rasulo and his flying monkeys need to go on an extended sabbatical for a long, long time.
