  • Would he be proud or be disappointed? Please give an explanation.

    • Disappointed, there are so many terrible shows on Disney Junior today. Like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, and Jake and the Neverland Pirates.

    • Yeah, and I'm extremely doubtful he would have approved of the film Maleficent, or the Gay Days at Disney World event Eisner started, or GCB, or the Cinderella sequels, or some of the more progressive messes started by Eisner and Iger.

    • Now that I saw the first images of Descendants, I think Walt would change his last name.

    • Maybe Walt would be proud of movies or shows more than others. He's most likely be proud of films like Beauty and the Beast or Toy Story, but probably dissaprove of Hannah Montana. Besides, even Walt did have problems with the studio, like that animators' strike back in 1941 I think, or the racist controversey with Dumbo and Peter Pan, despite their successes. I don't think he'd dissaprove of Frozen.

    • Personally I think Walt would be proud of his Disney movie franchise, I mean he would be very proud to know Frozen is the first Disney movie to make $1 billion dollars and is currently the highest grossing film of all time, and I'm sure he would be proud of all the other recent disney movies as well. Infact, he would probably be very happy to know that he was going somewhere with "The Snow Queen" storyline and that it became successful. Not only Frozen, but I believe movies from the Disney Renaissance, Pixar and the movies Wreck-it Ralph, Princess and The Frog would Walt be proud of

      However, I think he would be dissapointed in the Disney Channel program. Honestly, it's so bad and I think he would not have thought of that in the first place.

    • If Maleficent the movie, Gay Days at Walt Disney World, heck, even the censoring and suppressing of Path to 9/11 for purely partisan reasons is not enough for Disney to be sickened by the way his company is being run, this most certainly will sicken him to the core if he ever found out about it.

      Is it mean-spirited to tell the truth? If so, I don't see any reason to not be mean-spirited as long as I'm at least honest about my convictions. Besides, what's the issue with commenting about how bad Gay Days was? In case you've forgotten, Disney having that bit was indeed a bad decision on their part. I even know at least one person who has a gay friend who specifically advised against Gay Days specifically because it disturbed him. It's not like I advocated genocide or that the gays should commit suicide or anything.

      Besides, I do know Walt Disney definitely would not have approved of Maleficent the movie or the Cinderella sequels, because he specifically mentioned they not make another villain like Maleficent, being the most evil character they had ever created, and he specifically stated he had no plans for any sequels to his films.

      Read Disney War, and you'll see he was pretty much as bad as Eisner was. And besides, considering he was responsible for flops like John Carter and the Lone Ranger remake, and he was also responsible for that anti-Christian show known as GCB, not to mention some really anti-Christian stuff he was pushing on ESPN and ABC (something even one of his own shareholders called him out for, BTW), he's ruining Disney anyways. And they ARE warranted as they took the reins of Disney's company, and Roy and Diane Disney were sickened by how they were treating Walt's company. Heck, if it weren't for the fact that Roy died, Iger would have been thrown out as well and never ascended to power. Just read Disney War. And being a business means not pandering to political groups, and when Iger actually submits to the Clintons and the Democrat Party's request to not only cut bits out of Path to 9/11 that were critical of Clinton, but bury the film to such an extent that they aren't even allowed to sell the rights to another company, basically burying a large part of the truth just so the Democrats don't sue him, yes, that is something that is definitely cowardly and contemptible, especially when Americans deserved to learn the truth, the full truth, nothing but the truth so swear to God.

      Everything you say is discriminatory, racist, homophobic and accusatory!

      Last time I checked, I never said ANYTHING that would remotely qualify a such. Did I ask for them to bring blacks over to a tree and hang them? Did I say the KKK is the best thing since sliced bread? Heck, did I advocate that we round up Jewish people and homosexuals to death camps? No, absolutely not, on all counts. Heck, I frankly would be very disgusted if ANYONE advocated that. I only said that Walt Disney would not have approved of Gay Days at Disney World, which, BTW, even quite a few gays were very disturbed by the actions done in the park and even advised them to not go to the park, so if even gays state it should not be there, you know its a bad idea. If gays want to do things, while I won't approve of what they are doing, it's ultimately my problem as I don't have any of God's powers to stop them from doing it. However, they should at least try to keep it within their houses instead of doing it in public, especially in front of visiting families with very young children. I'd ask the very same for people who are heterosexual couples, that they not make out and have sex in public at all. And the "accusatory" statements are actually backed up by various sources, so no, they're facts, not simply accusations. If anything, YOU'RE the one being accusatory.

      And haven't you heard of the old saying that evil only succeeds if good people keep quiet? Besides, the stuff I said isn't even close to being mean-spirited. I've seen and heard of far worse things on the World Wide Web, and in history, and if even a gay person agrees that Gay Days is a terrible idea, you know it's a bad idea (and believe me, I have heard of at least one gay person objecting to it. I know someone from PJMedia, a libertarian type who doesn't mind gay marriage, who pointed out that one of his friends, who is gay and about to get married, actually told him that he shouldn't go to Gay Days specifically because the patrons' actions disturbed even a gay person like himself.). Now, had I been saying that all Gays should go to Hell in my posts, and I was doing the whole Westboro Baptist schtick, I can see your point, but I wasn't. I'm honestly not sure how saying Gay Days being a bad idea is even close to being mean-spirited. Had I intended to be the things Duke described me as, I would have been a lot more explicit, like, I don't know, actually proposing the same things Hitler and Stalin proposed involving mass-murder.

      You do realize that the company is a testament to his vision, right? And when he made very clear what his viewpoints are, it's not even up to debate, regardless of whether he's dead or not. Heck, his own nephew and daughter made very clear that some of the stuff Eisner and Iger are doing are definitely not what Walt would have ever wanted, and they know him far more than anyone else besides himself.

      Fine. I'm still not sure how what I said comes across as being "mean spirited" in any way, though. They'd have a point if I was using a lot of derogatory terms for gays or anyone else, or preaching the Westboro Baptist line or even promoting outright extermination of various peoples, but as far as I or anyone else should be able to tell, I never said anything that deserved the kind of treatment that's being subjected to me right now by Duke Remington. Still, if you're going to silence me, I guess I'll be silent.

      Either way, I'm pretty sure Walt never would have advocated for most of the stuff being churned out right now by Disney.

    • I think Walt Disney would be proud of the movies and all, but I don't think he would approve of, Disney Channel or Disney XD. Maybe he would just be happy of the AWESOME movies that are making lots of money. If they were to have TV shows, they should make them good enough that Walt Disney, or his brother, would approve.

    • Walt would certainly love the movies of the Renaissance, the more recent movies, the Pixar movies, and the Marvel and Lucasfilm properties. He would, however, be disgusted with how Disney has turned into a cheap, money-grubbing corporation caring more about pandering to today's hot demographics (IE Disney Channel and Disney XD), and would be very disappointed his dream city was never built.

      First thing he'd probably do is immediately shut down Disneyland for a MAJOR reworking. First order of business: put the PeopleMover, Carousel of Progress, Mine Train, Motor Boat Cruise, and Skyway back in, regardless of cost. He'd also reacquire the Retlaw One coaches, eliminate the movie stuff from PotC, love Haunted Mansion, reinstate the Keel Boats, have the Pirate's Lair overlay on Tom Sawyer Island removed, re-ignite the Settler's Cabin, and completely shut down Mickey's Toontown for being "cheap and tacky", replacing it with something new.

      At Walt Disney World, he would probably have no problems with Magic Kingdom, but would have the Skyway re-installed. Epcot's World Showcase would entice him, but Future World would receive a major reworking, eliminating Mission: SPACE (replacing it with a new, more tame attraction), reinstalling the original Journey Into Imagination (with Dreamfinder), reinstating live guides on The Land boat ride, and reopening Wonders of Life. Disney-Hollywood Studios would probably be completely shuttered after Walt hears the park was created to compete with Universal Studios, then commence construction of a completely new park: a park themed around a futuristic city called Progress City, featuring peoplemovers, monorails, moving sidewalks, and various other future-based attractions. He would definitely have no problem with Animal Kingdom, due to his love for nature, but would probably have the Wildlife Express locomotives swapped out with real steam locomotives.

      In Tokyo Disneyland, he would have a big fight with the Japanese government to obtain a waiver to have the Western River Railroad replaced with a traditional Disneyland Railroad. But otherwise, he'd have no problem with the park. He'd also like Tokyo DisneySea. He'd probably also have a monorail built.

      Disneyland Paris would be a point of contention for him. He'd like the railroad, but would be disgusted by the lack of the Jungle Cruise. Like in Florida, he would shut down Walt Disney Studios Paris and replace it with a new park.

      Hong Kong Disneyland would see Walt demanding the steam-outline locomotives (diesels made up to look like steam locomotives) be swapped out for actual steam locomotives. Otherwise, no problem.

      Shanghai Disneyland would see Walt DEMANDING the construction of a railroad, as it was not in the plans. To Walt, a Disneyland without a railroad encircling it is not a Disneyland.

    • As a Disney fan I both agree and disagree with how Walt Disney would react. I know he'd be proud in the Disney Princess Movie Franchises weather they're in 2-D Animation or 3-D Computer Animation. He'd love how many different people visit his park. He'd also love that his parks still sell the same Disney products they've been selling since the company was founded. He'd love how much money they've made over the past 51 years since his death. Here's what he'd disagree with: Star Wars Land, Star Wars Movies, Animation Studios shutting down, the death of Magic Of Animation Attraction, The demolition of Sky Way, The demolition of Frontier Land Ranch, The demolition of Disney Land Train Ride, The shutting Down of Tom Sewyer Island, The Shutting Down Of Mark Twain River Boat, The Shutting Down Of The Main Street Electric Parade.
