View Full Version : FREE bedtime stories - Disney canceled - UPDATE (Post 1)

As you all know, Disney cancelled the bedtime stories on tv in the resorts.

On June 12, I emailed Disney at this email address:
wdw.Guest.communications@disneyworld.com

and politely said that we were unhappy about that. We used the bedtime stories A LOT to help get our kids to bed. That really made a nice ending to our day. And when going to DW on a budget, that was one of the nice freebies we enjoyed!

UPDATE:

Well today ( July 10), a representative just called me from DisneyWorld. She said they got my email. She said that previous surveys had indicated that people really weren't using those bedtime stories so much so they cancelled them . HOWEVER ----- she said she'd forward my email on to the office that decides that. She said anytime there is a change and people complain, Disney really HAS to take that into consideration and she said THEY DO. She said if anyone else was dis-pleased about not having the bedtime stories anymore and they complained, that complaint would also go to the office who decides.
She said Disney is one company that really does listen to what customers want.

So if you are dis-pleased about the bedtime stories being canceled, PLEASE send an email stating such to wdw.Guest.communications@disneyworld.com. They will listen and they are paying attention to how many people are not pleased. If enough people email........who knows. Maybe they will bring them back. (???)

Thanks.

I just sent off my email. My DS loves them and was really looking forward to them on our Oct./Nov. trip this year. I hope that they bring them back if they get enough complaints.

I emailed them also, We were in our room 1 time early enough for the bedtime stories, and we lost intrest in them when the fireworks started @ M.K. we had to sit on our balcony :cloud9: (CR) and watch them. but they are great for smaller children, so I asked them to restart the bedtime stories. :goodvibes

I emailed them as well. I think that this would be a good thread to put on the resort page as well. I would link it if I knew how but unfortuantly I do not.

Thanks for this I really hope they bring them back. They had them when we went to Disneyland this weekend as it was great. I enjoy these probably as much as my daughter.

I emailed a long time ago and got a call back within 3 days. The very nice CM told me the same thing, that it would be forwarded and they do listen...let's hope!

I just sent an email also. My 5 year old DD cried when we were there in April because there were no more "bednight stories." She has always called them that. Hopefully they will bring them back.

Please, oh please, let there be someone at the receiving end of our requests who has little ones!! They'll be able to feel our pain!

My children (now 5 and 3) fall asleep to those stories every night of our vacation. It's a great way for them to unwind after a day in the parks. They even watch the ones in Spanish!! :confused3

Thank you for starting this thread!!

Because of the stories my daugthers favorite movie is monsters inc!!

I would be very upset if they were not back for our Sept trip!!
I doesn't seem like it would cost anything for Disney to show them, so why would they be discontinued? Is there something to replace them?

If you use incredimail or any other email service that has backgrounds or pictures, it will be returned because they show up as attachments. Re-send the email using NO BACKGROUND and it should go through.

Bump.

I just realized they cancelled the bedtime stories, and we loved them! I sent my email - hope others do too!

Thanks for starting this Grumpy's Gal! (by the way, love your name - and I can relate:laughing: )

Drat!
I just told DD6 about the bedtime stories 2 days ago! We never knew about them before. Now she is looking forward to them for our trip in 3 weeks.
I doubt they will restart them that soon!:sad2:

Sent my email too!

Maybe you could take a little tape recorder and borrow a couple of the stories from the library?? If I remember them right, they were the same as the couple books on tape we have. It was a really nice way to end the evening! I can't imagine why they would have cancelled them:confused3

Yay! That's why I bumped it. Maybe they'll get swamped with our emails and bring them back just to shut us up!!;)
