    Re: Hannah Montana Make overs... TRUE!

    I think they need to include a Captain Jack wig at BBB for the boys! Except I fear they would get a lot of 19 year old guys coming in there...

    I'm a sap, but I love seeing the little girls all decked out with sparkly hair and princess dresses. It just makes the atmosphere that much more fun.

    You don't set out to create a classic. It just happens. Who knows why? There are of course certain consistent elements, such as broad appeal and non-dated refrences - but just because a product has those elements, does not mean it will become a classic.

    I think the biggest problem is the narrow appeal. These items could never be rereleased for DVD as they are far too centered on pop-tween culture.

    I personally think synergy is a good thing, no one does it better than Disney, and I think we should all pretend like the little girls are Hannah Montanna and ask for their autographs!
    The issue is not synergy or even the availability of merchandise. The problem is the unrestrained flooding of merchandise into all facets of the Disney retail operations. The modern thought is that Disney is Disney and that is all. It doesn't matter if it is the local Disney Store or Frontierland, it is a Disney retail operation and needs the latest fads. Does Pirates of the Caribbean really need to be sold at Innoventions? The whole design of Disneyland had individual areas about the different interests of Walt Disney. There was organization. I would be all for bringing Hannah Montana to Walt Disney World, but bring the franchise to a thoughtful location.

    I would say this is part of the problem too. It is all focused on today. By the time the episode limit is reached, the show has pretty much run its course. Another networks can have shows run for much longer and maintain an audience, and I do not see why Disney could not do the same.

    I totally agree with you on that statement. That is my biggest pet peeve with merchandising recently. It seems like every single store at every single location (park, Downtown Disney, resorts, local malls, restaurants, etc...) sell the exact same merchandise. I just don't get it. Well, I do. It's cheaper to buy more of the same item than less of many different items. But, to me at least, they're making the resort and the brand pretty generic and bland by doing so.

    Why don't they just build the same resorts all over the place, or completely duplicate the parks all over the world? It would definitely be cheaper that way. I think they may have forgotten that people payed more for the Disney experience because it was unique. The same would apply to merchandising I would assume. But, I guess I could be completely wrong too. I just miss the unique shops you used to be able to find all over WDW.

    why? I don't understand this anti-Hannah sentiment. This show isn't nearly as bad as some of the other dreck tweens and kids watch. Not by a long shot.

    I think they do have a pirate type makeover. And maybe even Peter pan. Granted, I think all the really do is get the costume. They do all have the "cool dude" hair do that they spike the hair and color it and put confetti stuff in it. They boys don't get equal treatment but at least they aren't totally left out.

    The haircuts at the Harmony Barber Shop are hair cuts and, if desired, some colored gel and "pixie dust". The costumes would have to be purchased elsewhere.

    I gotta agree with you on this one. My 6 year old loves it. My 9 year old can't stand it, because it's "cool" to not like it.

    I enjoy tormenting them both by walking around belting out "You get the best of both worlds" over and over again in a voice so off key you would think I have to work to get it that bad (nope, all natural talent I have for butchering songs)

    My brother does the same thing as well - must run in the family

    OMG... I just saw this on the news. The guy who was talking about it, said (afterwards) "America has become wrong."

    At least it is in Florida and not Cali .

    I believe you are correct about the costumes. But they do have the "cool dude" hair dos (not cuts) at the BBB!

    Yeah and in about 10 years later Disney will have Dr. Ludwick von Drakes psychotherapy salon for all the poor boys who's parents made them do it... Hope it works better than Donald's anger management institute...
