    John Lasseter, yes. But I'm not sure about the other two. How about adding OLC into the mix?

    Yes, I know. It probably should have been "n'est-ce pas" instead.

    Eh what do I know. I took German in school, not French.

    This is one guy I KNOW FOR A FACT reads what I write, so I'm not all that concerned he won't take my thoughts seriously. Hell, this is a guy that planted a story in the Orlando Sentinel to make himself look good when I said he should do so here!

    The bottom line is I speak the truth. You know it ... and he does.

    And with the changing tide in Glendale and Burbank, his run the MK as lean-and-mean-and-unclean philosophy will either change or he'll wind up 'leaving the company for an opportunity I simply couldn't pass up.'

    There are also folks inside Disney who covet his position, so he really needs to start paying attention to quality or he'll find himself on the outside looking in.

    Rest assured, he's gotten the message ... just like he has in the past.
    Hey WDW1974
    the best part I liked about the Orlando Sentinel article was his greedy answer to this question from the reporter. The question was concerning when the MK was crowded and guests complained about the long waits for most of the rides which made it difficult to see all the rides in one day. His answer was they need to buy park hopper tickets and come back more than one day to plan for the crowds. Pretty sad when tickets are the price they are especially the $71 one day ticket.

    Why, so they can tell him to have more throwaway shows and more large oceans of concrete? I wouldn't mind them running the dining, but the park? No thanks.

    OLC's motto is basically that there's nothing you can't accomplish by throwing more money at it. And while that works, I don't think Phil Holmes controls the pursestrings as much as Rasulo does.

    Well, I guess we can kiss the idea of having flame throwers on MK's castle good-bye forever now. As well as the chance to retrofit one of the Epcot boats with water cannons to help cool off park guests during the summer, or the much-wanted Haunted Mansion Holiday.

    Well, I won't miss the first and I can't help but think not having the second is a good thing. I've never been hit with one of those water cannons but every time I hear about them I think of some guest who didn't want to get drenched getting hit with one.

    Why gush water all over the main thoroughfare of world showcase when you could use blowing mist or something instead? Then the liquid would be in places where you have to deliberately want a cooldown to get one. The water cannons look about as much fun as standing in front of one of the water shooting spigots at the service stops that line Florida's freeways.

    The Leaky Tikis are pretty much the same thing, if you ask me.

    Besides, they dont' actually aim those cannons at people. It's more like aiming for the area above their general location to cause a showering, which is about two levels up from a misting and less damaging than a full on water bomb from above.

    But you will always have someone who will complain that their $2,000 purse was damaged due to the moisture...

    You took my joke far too seriously.
