Perhaps, but as a Disney stockholder, I'm happy to see sponsorships to increase the bottom line. Remember, it wasn't too long ago that Disney stock prices were down, and there was a rumor Comcast was waiting in the wings to buy Disney. Everyone kind of pooh-poohed the idea that a cable company would want to get in the theme park business...but now Comcast owns Universal Studios.

theme parks are a pretty small component of disney stock performance.

True, but in the CEO battle a few years ago, many were using words like "lost the magic" as the reason for the stagnant performance and the parks surely contribute more to the bottom line than "magic" contributes.
