    Apr. 1, 2012: Walt Disney World Renamed!

    I usually post a new article each Friday. However, the news here at Walt Disney World—or, more accurately, here at the FORMER Walt Disney World—is so big that I had to post it immediately.

    Please discuss it here.

    To be honest I think they blew it by calling all the different parks by the same name.
    Does that mean you can now get in for only one price????

    LOL Who cares what day it is. It's ironically and metaphorically accurate, IMO.

    Thank you for creating this. I found the photos to be very well done (not at all photoshop fakey). And of course not only is this a funny joke it is a REALLY good commentary on Disney's recent business practices!

    Outstanding!

    The Disney Parks logo on the final two images required no Photoshop editing at all.

    I hope that certain people see how ridiculous their plans are at their logical limits and stop their "Disney Parks"-ization of commodity goods and souvenirs.

    Love it. Just as fun will be booking a "Disney Cruise", and hoping for a good destination.

    Awesome article, well done. You forgot the new merchandise bags! Not only do they say "Disney Parks", but they have multiple castles on them, so you can never have to feel like you're having a unique experience again!

    Werner, now THAT'S funny! What's sad, however, is how much of this rings true. I think "One Park" is a big mistake....
