    I would accept the return of castlecake if the room inside looked like you were sleeping inside a giant cake.

    And yet another reason why Jay Rasulo needs to go work for WalMart!

    The man's clueless.

    Gotta agree. CMs, not CMs, it is not a huge list. And just imagine the cheesy pick-up lines that could be associated with all of that.

    Ok, gonna hijack here for a minute.

    Why is everyone slamming this campaign before its even begun? Forget all the 'insider' rumors which are just rumors spread on these type forums as fact. What's the beef? It hasn't even started yet, and why would they annouce all the details 4 months before it even started? If you knew everything.. come Oct when it were to start.. you'd already be bored with it.

    Its obvious disney marketing is looking for continous campaigns to run now.. each to hold over until the next theme. That's why the tagline updates.. logos.. etc.

    Everyone moaning about the rumored number of 'prizes' and their value. Do you hear everyone whining when McDonalds does a promo (like Monopoly) and you get a free soda?

    Just like any prize promotion.. there are big winners.. and then many times more 'chump change' winners.

    I don't get all the whining. What.. no substance? Of course not, they are still in the 50th cele campaign! Granted they may have announced the NEXT campaign a bit early, but that wasn't kickoff day so what's the problem?

    Even if the execs annouce something before its completed.. that's an internal gripe.. why is everyone EXTERNALLY acting like the whole things a failure because some internal ruckus that may not influence the external delivery at all?

    You answered your own question. All we have is rumors, lousy ones at that. For the 50th we had hard facts of what they were doing. And they gave us that info a year before it started. We're 4 months away we know nothing and have just uninspiring rumors to go on.

    The 50th is a bit different of a special yearly marketing campaign tho.

    Unfortunatly not every year is going to be the golden anniversy of your first park, so I don't really consider that a fair comparison. The 50th was a global event including major attractions at multiple parks. That's not simply something you are going to do every year.

    What you are seeing is Disney marketing feeling like to have to have 'something' every year (which is not new.. they've been doing this for awhile) so they have these campaigns.

    What you are describing is simply coming off a sugar high.

    The Year of a Million Churr..I mean Dreams is all style and no substance.

    Disney itself doesn't even know how or what much of it is going to be.

    Disney parks should be about being enveloped in different environments that transport you worlds away from the every day ... in everything from the attractions to the dining to the live performers to the fireworks to your resort room (if you're staying there).

    When Disney resorts to things like 100 Years of Magic, Magical Gatherings, the Happiest Celebration and now this lame-a$$ one, what they are doing is saying 'we either can't come up with new reasons for guests to come or won't spend the money to create new experiences that will have guests calling their TAs, so we better come up with some marketing BS that the rubes will fall for.'

    It's pretty hard to argue it like that, 74, when the 50th marketing sure brought a lot of rubes to DL.
