    Outstanding!
    I respectfully disagree. I thought the photoshoppery was subpar at best.

    Ahh, but you missed the whole point! He didn't have to do ANY Photoshop Magic on any of the merchandise and clothing, or the paper plates, cups, napkins at all the restaurants, or the Popcorn Buckets, Pin Trader Folders...

    (Werner might have Shoppped one or two, but that would be because he didn't have the proper imagery needed on hand or easily available - Disney has slapped the Generic "Disney Parks" kludge name/logo on tons of different items - but they don't move nearly as well as the Park Specific items, and get sent to the Outlet Stores where they still don't sell...)

    The ONLY good thing about the generic paper goods is to have a backup stock on hand that they can send anywhere if there's a supply snag getting the properly themed goods for a certain park or area - and they don't want to use plain white or generic designs. Other than that, stop this nonsense.

    If they keep going with this "Disney Parks Initiative" they might as well do the name changes for real. Including the two Disney Parks in Anaheim, and the ones in France and Tokyo and Shanghai, and all the DVC resorts get the DPR title including the one in Hawaii...

    They already let the Brainiacs in Florida determine the projected attendance and the staffing levels necessary for Anaheim for the "One More Disney Day", and we can all look back and see how wonderfully that turned out. They shattered all time attendance levels, BUT...

    If not for the grace of all the Annual Passholders who realized what happened (the CM's were severely short-staffed and the park was over-stuffed before the Main Gate finally called a Hard Close) and made a supreme effort to NOT raise a stink about it to the CM's dealing with the crowds, it could have gotten very very ugly indeed.

    If they try something like that again -and this time they have all their ducks in a row - they could easily top that record again, and this time everyone (Cast and Guests alike) can have an unqualified blast while doing it.

    Werner, while I appreciate a good joke just like anyone else, you let the cat out of the bag way too early with your disclaimers. (Hey, haven't we had this discussion before?) Let the joke stand on its own, and let people figger out gradually that they've been taken for a ride. And if they never figure it out, well, what can you do with dumb people???

    Not only fun April Foolery, but brilliant satire to boot!

    The Disney Park with the castle - is that Cinderella Castle, or Disney Princess™ Castle?
