Walt Disney World what have they done to you?

Walt Disney World is FastPass losing its pixie dust magic.

I've always loved Walt Disney World. But I have to admit that greed is ruining the loved Disney vibe and what used to be a premium experience. 

Its sometimes hard for parents to realize it. There are so few places in the world where you feel safe. Also, the Disney corp has geniuses in their
public relations department.   If not, how could you explain a system that makes us work for what we have already paid for.  

Paying guests blame themselves  if they don't get it in on a favorite ride or a restaurant.  "I guess I did not book the FastPass in enough time, etc, etc."  Never mind the guest that does not want to have schedules when they are on vacation. We blame everything but the simple fact that Walt Disney World in Orlando might be overbooking.

The vision is no longer quality but quantity. Construction still continues hungrily along.  Never mind that now their customer service has deteriorated. 
Running the parks with the short sided view of hiring temporary, part-time college workers just does not work. 

They may try their best, but nothing beats an experienced employee that has a stake in the company.  Let's just say that what we have now is the antithesis of Walt Disney's idea of "Be my guest." 

Bog Eiger, CEO makes over $30 million a year. However tickets are going up. If you are even thinking of renting the new Bora Bora Bungalows at Disney's Polynesian Village bring a suitcase of gold.  They are expected to average $21,000 to $29,000 a night!   

Don't be surprised that one day you will see the Spaceship Earth ride replaced with even more shops. After all that is prime real estate and this is the way they are going. 
The rides are now an after thought.  No real magic.--There is no sense of history or even common sense. Epcot's essence was all about experiencing different countries and their culture.  Even Norway was upset about the new Frozen attraction plopped where Maelstrom used to be. Never mind that  Frozen is not from any particular country.

No wonder Magic Kingdom is still the most popular.  It still has authentic rides and meaning.  

So please Disney lovers, tell  the powers that be what you like and dislike.There is going to be a new CEO.  Disney is still magical but it needs more love sprinkled with fairy dust and less greed. We pay premium bucks.  Let's expect a premium experience!  

Meanwhile I hope they do not kill the goose that laid the golden eggs. Walt Disney World is turning into Six Flags and losing its charm.  All of us that love Walt Disney World are wishing on a star that they watch Walt Disney's movie about his life again. 'Cause right now they just don't get it.

Tired of hard-core sex scenes in every story?

 Humans instinctively feel a need for  privacy when sex is involved.  Hell, we don't even like to talk about it.  Maybe its due to our evolution.  We started with TV couples like Desi and Lucy sleeping in double beds to explicit sex on most films and TV series.

Most  find ourselves fast forwarding scene after scene. Poor actresses having to do this!  After all, they need the  job.

"The Sex Scene," Shut the damn door! Isn't imagination what movies are all about? Let's get to the story. Don't get me wrong, if the movie is "50 shades of  Grey" then I expect it.  But give me the option of choosing.  Don't add because you have 10 minutes to fill.

If you feel the same way then tell the movie companies. They have fallen into the "as many sex scenes as possible" syndrome.This over sexed hype has infected even Mr. Scorsese.   Not You Too Mr. Scorsese! Please don't go along with the herd!!

According to Wikipedia in “The Wolf of Wall Street," the F-word is used 506 times.   The sex scenes were also relentless in that picture. Its lazy writing. Please Mr. Scorsese, watch your masterpiece "Taxi Driver" again. It's also all about sex; but what a difference.
