Now THIS is really silly of Disney and their marketing dept. If they were smart they'd try to work with them as they represent a gold mine of marketing and advertising for them. I'm biased of course, I rather enjoy a lot of the different vloggers work.I know too Tm and Jenn have all along, since I started watching, clearly stated in their YouseDay mail vlogs I've seen that you DON'T have to send them anything, or buy them anything. They have also said they do not do meet and greets (answering questions/requests for this), because "Disney does not like them".
What leads you to doubt it? Or to think they'd be lying?I'm not convinced this is true to be honest, it could easily be a case of "I don't want to take selfies anymore, lets lame Disney"
It's just my personal feeling on the matter.What leads you to doubt it? Or to think they'd be lying?
Tim and Jen are not the first to have reported being asked not to do meet and greets with guests. Also, Disney's own site states:
While a YouTube personality is not technically "in costume", it's functionally the same thing. Disney does not want to have non-Disney-employees in any way appearing to represent them, for obvious liability reasons.
- All Guests may dress as their favorite character, but may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
I am pretty sure there was a vlog of it when it happened. Not the actual interaction with the guard but while he was in the park he said he had just been approached by management after being followed for a bit and then told.I'm not convinced this is true to be honest, it could easily be a case of "I don't want to take selfies anymore, lets lame Disney"
Tim doesn't come across as that type Sean, maybe I'm just limiting my scope to believing what he's actually saying. I would think he would address it differently if he didn't want to take the selfies than blame Disney for it.It's just my personal feeling on the matter.
Because any "celebrity" (or other recognizable person, even if they're not strictly celebrities) who is in the park, and doing meet-and-greets with guests, can be perceived as representing Disney. If the celebrity acts badly, that reflects on Disney and puts them in a position of liability.why does Disney or anyone care?
This what I hate about society today.. people basing their opinions on feelings instead of facts. You made a baseless accusation with nothing but your feeling to back it up. I hope you are more cautious in the future and resist passing judgment on others so easily.It's just my personal feeling on the matter.
The ev you're talking about is around 30-35k its not an expensive car by any means also means the payment is probably around $350-400 a month which again isn't a lot when you dont have kids he has a job outside YouTube and after seen some of the beaters theyve went through they deserved a good car, and the small vinyl fence also doesnt cost a ton on their small lot but someone seems jealous of seeing other upgrade their property little by little to make it more efficient, ive never heard of anyone doing that before lol. Why would they donate when they themselves were without power for over a week and ended up in a hotel?Since you posted this publicly, I'll chime in.
I have watched this vlogger team for well over a year. Over the course of that time, I've seen he and his wife add new vinyl fences, new EV/HEV vehicles being purchased and many other luxuries being discretely touted. In so much that even my beloved Fox 35 news has pulled them onto the set for a prime time interview (even though I asked for parity and for DU to share an equal spot).
With that being said, I very truly admire the ingenuity and artistic ability that once was prevalent with them, but has now been so saturated to the point of drowning. This has become so abundantly clear to me when I personally witnessed the many thousands of local families looking for some sort of assistance to help pay for their food damages during the hurricane that hit here (specifically Irma). Perhaps the local vloggers do donate beyond what is publicly declared?
This is not a case of sour grapes, but a perspective builder for me. I could no longer support an individual/entity/anomaly that capitalizes (or provides a "service") on a luxury expense for most (I raise my hand as well).
I guess that is why I see DU as a viable company; they have much more overhead and should/are looking at quarterly/monthly P/E reports. But, they are an incorporated entity armed with a solid business plan/model and, apparently, the credentials to justify my support.
Im sorry but this really chaps my hide. If I paid to enter the park and Tim Trackers paid to enter the park, why on earth am I not allowed to take a photo with him? Disney can't discriminate against one man. Or better yet what if I wanted to use my photo pass and have one of those guys take our photo? You can bet the farm that Disney World capitalizes on all this free publicity from all these bloggers.I just saw on Tim Trackers twitter Disney security advised him to not accept picture requests with guests. I'm not sure if the Dis Unplugged team has been contacted as well? The Dis team is out there visible on social media. They have a big following. Why single out Tim? There are other Disney vloggers out there too? I'm sure the Dis team gets asked for some photos when spotted in the parks. Could Disney be putting the hammer down now?
The compensation the mom bloggers get for all the work they do is a pittance and most of them are so desperate for any type of sponsorship they willingly work for it to be an official blogger for them.Im sorry but this really chaps my hide. If I paid to enter the park and Tim Trackers paid to enter the park, why on earth am I not allowed to take a photo with him? Disney can't discriminate against one man.

Its really a symbiotic relationship. Disney draws customers to visit the parks. Customers that long for more WDW in their life. Bloggers meet that disire by producing videos. The bloggers long to live the dream of getting paid to go to WDW. Disney draws even more customers because of all the promoting the bloggers do on you tube. Disney World makes billions off the entire process.
I would NEVER thought of going to Disneyland if Pete hadn't been raving about how good the weather, food and location was.
I thought I'd heard them say they'd taken pics with folks since then, but wasn't sure; Thanx very much for clarifying, Ryan!!Just so everyone is aware this was a one time thing. Tim and Jenn have said it must’ve been an angry CM because they’ve been allowed to do it since.
I got a picture with him during the EPCOT 35th anniversary.
I think they just would rather not it turn into a line/crowd of people situation. They're not gonna police people taking selfies with anyonePeople were taking pictures with him last week at the Magic Kingdom.
