It seems that whenever Disney does anything Micechatters just sit at their computers and complain (and yes- I know that I am a micechatter, and am not so much complaining, as I know many are going to think this is, but am asking a question: why?) Why is it that we are just never satisfied if they want to change something in the park. When they even just announce that they are going to- people rant and vent about how "it's a classic" "an icon of the park" and so on.
"Disneyland is a thing I can keep molding and shaping. It's a three-dimensional thing to play with."
"I just want to leave you with this thought, that it's just been sort of a dress rehearsal and we're just getting started. So if any of you start resting on your laurels, I mean just forget it, because we are just getting started."
"Disneyland is something that will never be finished. Something that I can keep developing, keep plussing and adding to. It's alive. It will be a live breathing thing that will need change. A picture is a thing, once you wrap it up and turn it to technicolor you're through. Snow White is a dead issue with me. A live picture I just finished, the one I wrapped up a few weeks ago, it's gone, I can't touch it. There's things in it I don't like; I can't do anything about it. I wanted something alive, something that can grow, something I can keep plussing with ideas; the park is that. Not only can I add things, but even the trees will keep growing. The things will get more beautiful each year."
"Disneyland will never be completed as long as there is imagination left in the world."
All of these quotes are from Walt Disney himself. He understood things needed to change over time. Plus if they (Disney) take something out- it's usually because of low (very low) attendance. I.E.- The Country Bears. Fantastic show! Am I sad it's gone- yes. But when I went to watch it when I was little I remember the house being pretty empty. In fact my family was one of the only people in there every time we saw it. So why not put something new in it's place to try to bring people into that area of the park?
Then there are the people who complain about trivial things like "who drinks out of the drinking fountains?" and how gross they are. And that Taste Pilot's Grill no longer serves Criss-cut fries. Were they good? Yes they were, but is it truly that important that it is going to ruin your entire day, then make you so mad that you have to go home and make a new thread about how you should call the park, and bombard City Hall with complaints about it. Think about it, it's not that important. I mean- if you really have nothing better to do with your life than to do what people say on a website about a park, then I truly feel sorry for you, and it's MCers who do these sort of things that give us all a bad name.
A lot of Mcers wont even give things a chance. When George was annouced as being named the new President of Disneyland people were bashing him and talking about how he looks like a stiff, no personality, Pressler-like nerd. He's already done more than Ed by just walking around the parks and letting cast members see him.
And what ever happened to the whole "Don't mention Cast Member's names on Micechat.com"? I see new threads daily that have the names of Disney Employees- both complaints and compliments. If you really liked that cast member- don't mention their name and you wont get them in trouble. That REALLY nice thing they did for you that made your day more magical- maybe they weren't supposed to do that.
To be completely honest- I don't care if you agree with me or not. And I am aware that not all MCers are this way, but there are enough to give us all a bum rap. I just hope that at least one of these people reads this, wakes up, and tries looking at things differently, and maybe give things a try before forming an opinion about them.
