Exactly! What we need here in the land of the free is a news media that only puts out government approved stories. Or at least Disney approved ones!

I believe they practiced that once upon a time in Germany. I don't think that worked out well for them.


anyways, I can't think of a better place to die.
I don't blame them.

I totally agree that it is soooooo frustrating! :headache: I mean, honestly, millions of people go to WDW every year. :crowded: I do not think that it is strange that 4/1,000,000,000+ people tragically die from explained/unexplained health reasons. It isn't Disney's fault!!!! :earseek:

So, I am terrified of flying, and I was talking about it with my MIL. She says "I wouldn't be afraid of flying as much as I would going on the rides in the parks!" :badpc: :badpc:

AHHHHHH! The terrible news people are tainting the minds of people everywhere!

I agree. Just because someone becomes severely ill while visiting a Disney park does not equate to Disney being at fault. Sometimes people choose to ignore warnings and decide to experience an attraction anyway. More than once I've seen people with neck braces riding thrill rides at Disney. Just imagine all the people who ride with non-visible ailments.

If you think about how many MILLIONS of people visit a Disney Park every year, someone is going to have problems there. Doesn't necessarily mean that Disney is at fault, just the timing.

For example the last couple of deaths have had NOTHING to do with the parks! People just unexplicably pass out, have heart attacks and die.

While I am very sorry for this happening to these people, I think these tragedies would probably occured at the same time no matter where they were.

I think that considering the amount of guests, the amount of deaths is incredibly low! Just my thoughts

Not sure what these stories have to do with the media being "liberal", but certainly there has been nothing other than coincidence of time to link these stories, and it would be nice if the reports could at least say so.

Obviously the events need to be reported, and the incidents need to be investigated, but it would seem more fair to follow "this is the Xth incident in Y months at WDW" with "There is no evidence to suggest that the incidents are related in any way."

Further evidence that people in the midwest just don't understand sarcasm. :earboy2:

To comment on the above posters message, when the Mission:Space thing happened I DID hear one report that mentioned that something like 8.6 million people had ridden the attraction since it opened. Information like that puts things in perspective rather quickly.

The girl who recently died is from where I live, and to tell you the truth, the media hasn't gotten out of hand. From what i have seen, nobody was blowing things way out of proportion and blaming it on Disney. I obviously don't know what its like everywhere, but thought i'd throw in my two cents!

kellyf2626
08-18-2005, 11:40 AM
I just hate that when that poor girl died at TL, when the news broadcasted it around here, they did the intro with "another death at Disney"....and then in the broadcast, relayed all the deaths at Disney in the last 10 years! Why???

annie1995
08-18-2005, 11:57 AM
I agree with everybody. The media is over killing these poor peoples deaths, and people are blaming Disney without any factual evidence. If someone drops dead pushing a grocery cart in the store, will that someday become the stores fault??!! Things tend to get way out of hand where the media goes.

I must live under a rock...I haven't heard about any deaths other than the 4 yr old on MSpace and never did hear what they determined happened.

Was this death of a girl at Typhoon Lagoon recent?

I've really got to get out more!

My DS was 4 1/2 last year while we were at WDW and Mission Space was one of his favorite rides--the other was TOT! Please don't assume it was the age---the height requirement is what matters for safety, not age.
Lots of 4 yr olds have been on that ride with no problems.

I will agree that itís tough in written form.

Donít mean to offend anyone in the MidwestÖ just picking on you (hey, Iím from Jersey, we get our fair share of abuse too!). Itís just a cultural thing Iíve noticed. DH is from Pittsburgh and heís just now (after 7 years of dating/being married to me) starting to "get it" let alone use it. And now he understands my frustration when he says something to his mom and it just goes right over her head or she takes it completely wrong. :rotfl:

Talking about the millions who visit Disney every year.... Don't think that gives the right picture of the real situation. Instead, think of the average daily attendance of the parks. I think a coservative estimate of that is 35,000. Now, think of a community of 35,000 and tell me, how many deaths do they have a year? How many of those deaths are normally caused by the environment without any help from the victim? And what if every death that happened to a community of that size was covered as national news?

A girl that died of probable heat/dehydration what does that have to do with a child that died several miles away in Mission Space? And yet, what news report covering her death didn't meantion his?

They should change the name from The Happiest Place on Earth to The Safest Place on Earth.

Unfortuantely, certain people, companies, places etc., will always be targets for negative publicity, as opposed to all the good they may do, it's what the media does. It sucks, but you have to realize it's never going to change.

Well I for one am planning to SUE! No where was there a WARNING just how addictive WDW vacations could become. Now I am totally obsessed, and spend all my free time, and most of my spare money planning Disney trips. Disney should be ashamed. The website and planning materials should come with a warning label! ::yes:: ::yes::

....but seriously.... I do feel for and pray for the family members of those that passed away, but in no way whatsoever do I feel WDW is responsible. And I also think that the incidents have been blown out of proportion.

Right you are, but rather than blame the "media" for reporting what happens, how about putting some responsibility for intelligent thought on the people who read these articles to arrive at the same conclusions you did? No media report I've seen or read indicated that people were dropping like flies at WDW. That's only a conclusion people here on the DIS are worrying that those who aren't as "smart" as they are will jump to.

It's never a bad thing to report what happens, only to not report it.

I agree. Besides, it wouldn't be news if it happened every day, and I think most (intelligent) people realize that if it's made the headlines, that means it's an unusual occurrence. I think it more states and draws attention to how safe WDW really is.
