    Question Ellen is promoting Uni Orlando - Huh?

    I doubt many people here watch Ellen Degeneres' daytime talk show, but Ms. Universe of Energy is promoting Islands of Adventure hard during today's show, and saying the show will actually be hosted at Uni Orlando next week. Everybody can go meet Dory at Universal instead of Disney, I suppose.

    Anybody know what the status is with Disney and Ellen? This seems odd coming after that long partnership and the Subs marketing due to start up at DL.

    Well, Ellen is on NBC here in LA and NBC owns Universal so I'm just putting 2 + 2 together.

    Ellen's show is syndicated. She's actually on the ABC affiliate in Vegas, which is partly why all this made my ears perk up. It's also produced by Warner Bros Television, so no Universal collusion there.

    Holy moly, she's not only talking up the place and showing videos of her friends on Doctor Doom, she's also doing a pop quiz between two contestants with the winner getting a free trip to Uni.

    Well, she did go to that theme park already last year so I guess it's a given she'll be going every year just like Regis & Kelly do with WDW and sometimes DLR.

    Heck, Whoopi is the host of Golden Dreams at DCA, and the USH Tram Tour...

    Nothing new, I presume Ellen is getting something from Universal for the promotion....

    Does Ellen have a "long partnership" with Disney?

It’s a cool place because it has three hotels and I like to stay in a different place every night and it’s got two theme parks with tons of rides.”

    I have emailed Ellen about riding her ride at Disney World. She has never rode it.

    Her show is owned by NBC which owns Universal so they have her do her show there. It's actually one of her more popular shows of the year. I loved watching her there last year and I hope to video it this year since I won't be able to see it. It was mucho fun. We're all hoping that they'll use her show to announce the replacement of BTTF since she'll be taping on its final day.
