I can't imagine that a petition with 100,000 or more signatures on it, politely requesting that the sorcerer hat be torn down, would be looked at lightly... particularly if the press were involved in it's presentation. Similarly a petition calling for a massive monorail expansion and returning EPCOT Center to some of it's core themes and values?

I'm just wondering if this has been tried is all. I took a look at *********** and there are a handful of petitions going over there right now, though they mostly have to do with programming on the Disney channel.

Thoughts?
I'd like to start a petition to end these types of petitions

I am sure that if you were to give The Powers That Be at Disney a petition signed by 100,000 people, they would smile and thank you for your interest and affection for WDW and tell you that it would receive all the attention that it deserves. And then promptly place it in the circular file holder. As they should. It is a major multinational corporation. It is answerable to its shareholders.

The OP reminds me a little bit of the poster last year who wanted to start an Occupy movement at WDW. If memory serves, that didn't fly either.

And why is this on the Resorts board?

Very shortly it will be on the Theme Parks board. Keep your hands and feet inside the ride vehicle.

The only thing that might sway Disney is fewer people coming to the parks. A petition isn't going to make any difference.

By the way, I wish that they would completely refurbish the monorails too. They are rather tacky and break down too often which is a shame for us because we consider them an attraction.

The Hat would be a wonderful addition to the Backlot Tour.

Awww come on - the OP was just throwing an idea out there, no need to crush her/him

Yes, maybe the OP is new to posting - I'd been reading the boards for over a year before I dared to post ... you're a tough crowd And probably with all the talk of how unhappy some are with napkins and the like, the OP thought maybe we should band together and start a rising. I can't join yet though .... brownies in the oven

That would be weird... so many hats it would blot out the sun. Hatland!

No honestly I've always liked the Hat and trying to get a big enough petition together for Disney to respond is like trying to get everybody not to buy gas for one day to affect the price of oil.

I don't want to get rid of the sorcerer hat. *intense stare*

Anyway, I think big petitions getting up to the CEO or whoever reads and manages that sort of stuff for the wonderful place known as WDW is just a crazy dream. Like getting rid of Global Warming or making sure that all the kids in the world are fed and loved. Something we'd like to think we can do, but really probably can't do.

And, just by the way, people are right; the programming on DC stinks. What happened to Kim Possible and Lizzie McGuire? Even Stevens and That's So Raven? Okay, maybe the last two weren't that impressive, but still....

If you want to start a petition for something, please do try. Just don't expect miraculous results. I'll be happen to sign if I agree with the issue.
