    just because you are both white does not mean you cannot be racially descriminated against. Am I reading this wrong?

    I'm guessing he meant he was white and so was the person taking the ticket.

    My children and I waited for 30+ minutes to meet Tiger and Poo. We were next in line and suddenly Poo walked away. We were told Christopher Robbin needed him....did I cry and whine and make my kids long for Poo.....no we hopped on over to take pics with Tiger...should I sue because there was no Poo?

    It's a shame how sue-happy this country has become. In a park with 25,000 people, Donald snubbed my toddler, so I sue. Then when he goes to kindergarten, only the kids who color in the lines get a star? So I sue. Then when he's 17,he doesn't make the college of his choice, I should sue.....
    I know it's a stretch? But it seems we are headed that way. Life is sometimes unfair, how me handle that builds character. Suing is not the way to build character.

    If I was Disney, I would hire nothing but African Americans to dress as the characters,
    1- because when these other African American families continue to sue by claiming racism, they will look like complete morons
    2- I don't think I have ever heard of a caucasian family suing by claiming racism

    Ha. Then the employees (or potential employees) would sue for racial discrimination.

    I hate to jump to conclusions, but it sounds to me like these people are just out to see what they can get.

    just an aside. IT was propbably not a guy in either costume. Men are usually too tall to be donald or the white rabbit. I have seen handlers for certain characters at disneyland but they were usually assigned to characters that had costume issues and it was difficult for the character to see or hear.

    I could be wrong, I am not looking at the Black Family (eh em, to avoid a lawsuit over racism, I mean the family with the name Black), but the direct quote from the kid looks identical to the other kids quote about how the child felt afterwards. At the very least, some very serious amount of coaching involved.

    Looks like our ticket prices are going up to pay for the lawsuits.

    We really don't know what that poster meant.

    That's because all they said was their experience with a ticket turnstile CM was an "unpleasant interaction." :confused: That obtuse reference could have been anything from a hostile/insulting attitude...to bad breath. Short of more details, one can't judge whether their complaint to Disney supported the insinuation that there are "rogue" CMs and that the actions that resulted in these lawsuits were perhaps (as they put it) "not so innocent."

    Line jumpers or parents who try to find their way to just kinda push there kid on through a crowd. Just think of parades at MK. You have to literally sit hours ahead of time and you decide to sit not to impose on anyone's view, confine yourself to a small space. Them people will go n dump there kids and strollers directly in front of you when there may not have been any room in front of you on the first place. It keeps happening. People are ignorant and selfish.

    US law needs to change. If you sue someone (or a business/corporation) then the maximum amount you can receive should be based on the amount you have potentially 'lost out' on - in other words the plaintifs do not receive the Punative side of the settlement. That could go towards the cost of running the Court system, or healthcare!

    ie in this instance the maximum amount the families could claim would be the value of one day entry into the park for the family - say $200-300.

    Cases like this are about profiteering. Plain and simple. Legal firms grow rich every day from them.
