  • [Other] Those "Save a Stitch" banner ads

    Those banner ads for saving up 25% at a Disneyland hotel, what is with Stitch and why does the phrase say, "Save a Stitch"? I tried to look it up but found nothing, so what does it mean?
    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight
    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    I'm guessing just a ploy to get you to click on the ad.

    In my search, I did find "Save Lilo and Stitch" website.
    They are trying to save the show so it doesn't go off the air.

    To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.

      I'd assumed they meant the kind of obscure definition of "stitch" meaning something small or "a bit." stitch - definition of stitch by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia. Though "Save a little" is not the most compelling advertising slogan I've heard of. Or maybe a reference to "a stitch in time saves nine." I don't know; I don't really get it myself.

      Disney - Disney Cruise, Lilo & Stitch | Flickr - Photo Sharing! has a picture of a postcard that appears to have used a similar promotion for the Disney Cruise Line around 2006.

        A stitch in time saves nine is referencing the idea that doing/repairing something immediately will save you time in the future. Using clothing for example: fixing a small tear immediately will save you from a major patch job.

        Relating this to the disney banners, I would conclude that they are saying "take advantage of our savings deals now because it will only be more expensive in the future". Rather any interesting marketing campaign. Implying a future price increase to motivate people into taking an immediate vacation.
