POST PHOTOS of burned-out lights, chipped paint, monorails taped together, or...
Thats the title of this thread. I reads to me that you are looking for/at as many bad/negative things as you can here. Others are "whats the worst park?" come on, really? I have the "character" to back it up, I just don't have the time.
I'm not defending "mediocrity", I'm more of a realist. You may care about whether families are having fun or not, but the majority..... vast majority of share holders couldn't care less. As long as people keep coming to the parks and buying Disney products they don't care if people have fun. It is the same the world over everyone works toward the bottom line. I'm sure you do it your self in your everyday life. You don't buy stuff on sale right? You don't use the big warehouse stores to save money? You don't do with out some things so that you can DO others like go to MiceChat meets?
It is the way of the world. That is what made Walt so special. He was more interested in the family side of things not the money. His brother got stuck with making the numbers work. Once Walt passed so did that mentality. Sure WDW could use a little paint here and there, a light bulb or two, but it is STILL the happiest place on earth. It still brings in millions of people a year.... who btw seem to be having a blast when I see them there.
WDW does what it can.... as their budgets allow.... to maintain the parks. Personally I'm ok with the job they are doing. They do far better than most companies out there. In my job I travel all over New England and see many company buildings, some very big names. Some do a good job of maintaining their property, others not so much. People like you who seem to think that pointing out every little flaw they can spot....or ask others to post for them.... will get the parks back to a fresh construction era are a bit out of touch. Budgets rule the day. You want to see clean perfect settings, be there when they open the Seven Dwarves Mine car. It will be pristine. Oh thats right, you don't go to WDW.
