    Maybe that was actually part of the anticipated show changes to KS.

    Is Disney Hippo Pond code for a Character meal/buffet?

    How dare you guys make fun of this. Let's thank the heavens this wasn't really serious and Tigger wasn't involved. You two must hate Disney. I have no idea why you would even waste your time on this board if you hate Disney so much. Why don't you go to a Six Flag's web site where you really belong troublemakers.

    It appears that this thread is quickly heading towards a closure! Please don't insult others. I certainly don't want to issue any warnings or infractions today.

    Who was insulted?:confused3

    I agree (with the Union) that this is exactly why Disney shouldn't be so gung ho to outsource everything in sight just to save a few bucks on the bottom line. Not that CM's have never had squabbles but I think Disney used to screen their hires and school them in the ways of being a CM...:sad2:

    Don't worry crazy4WDW, Cristen is just having a little fun with us.

    Its difficult to make a judgement based on one incidnent, but I agree in concept. There's a reason they are called cast members.

    The Orlando Sentinel is now reporting that the argument was over a card game that happened 2 weeks ago

    Yeah but look on the bright side.......since these folks are contractors they are much easier to get rid of then if they were unionized cast members. I would like to know where Disney buys it's magic pixie dust that changes humans into cast members though, I could use it around my place.

    Not pixie dust... its can just done through screening, training, management and corporate culture.

    So the really crabby CM's frying in the sun chocking on gas fumes from the little go carts at the Indy Speedway are the product of these same magical screening, training, management and corporate culture?
