What do you think?
That’s my thing. I have no issues with the cost. Of course, it’d be nicer if it were cheaper. But no business has any obligation to make anything affordable for me or any certain group. But I do think he would be appalled at the lack of quality. I think it will ultimately be the demise of the company. I don’t necessarily think it’ll happen soon or even in my lifetime, but eventually it won’t be any different than any other theme park.I think he'd be angry about the persistent grubby and less than up to show standards of many facets of the parks and the fact that it is simply considered the way things are done today. Filth in monorails, Small World, Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin are three very grungy areas that spring to mind first.
I'd love to see the decision makers responsible attempt to explain to him taking a wonderful concept of attraction and character of Figment in the Imagination pavilion and reducing it to something where the big finish is a flatulence joke.
As long as he had the best business minded person beside him, I think all would still exist!! Walt did not worry where the money came from. It's impossible to say what he would have concluded (decisions) with the worldwide billion dollar corporation it is today. I'd like to think he'd see that the average Joe is getting priced out, of late and not have that happen.If he were alive the Walt Disney company would have ceased to exist and gone out of business years ago.
He was a visionary but not a good business man.
How sad this is his legacy and they should have his family have inputWell, I never personally knew Walt Disney, but I do know his daughters selected San Francisco for the location of the Walt Disney Family Museum because of their dislike for what the Walt Disney Company has become. The refused to put it anywhere near any of the Disney parks of studios.
Low income people have always been priced out of Disney vacations.I feel like Walt would disapprove of the way lower income people are being priced out of Disney vacations. I know he would have disapproved of all those crummy, low-budget straight-to-video animated movies in the '90s!
He'd love some things and be disgusted by others. The rides are pretty solid I must say. The amount and variety of resorts is nice. The Disney brand growth around the world has probably gone beyond what even Walt dreamed.What do you think?
Disneyland admission was $1 in 1955. Rides cost 10-30 cents. Maybe 9x that to account for inflation. I remember even as far back as the 1980s we always thought of visiting as relatively affordable.Low income people have always been priced out of Disney vacations.
Even with $1 admission, there were low income families that couldn't afford that WANT.Disneyland admission was $1 in 1955. Rides cost 10-30 cents. Maybe 9x that to account for inflation. I remember even as far back as the 1980s we always thought of visiting as relatively affordable.
