  • [Chat] Move the ugly memorials around Spaceship Earth, please.

    Move the ugly, horribly out-of-place memorials from under Spaceship Earth now, please.

    Eisner:
    "What would reflect the beautiful, optimistic tomorrow we're celebrating in Future World?
    Selling memorials to dead people and placing them where there should be flowers and fountains at the heart of EPCOT!
    "

    It was bad mistake, like the old wand and sign above the giant globe. Please relocate them ASAP.

    they have contracts with the people that bought into them. I agree it was a mistake but fact of the matter is nothing can be done until those contracts expire, nor would they be willing to do anything to them until that time, no reward from their perspective.

      When do the contracts expire?
      The reward would be a much more beautiful park.

          they don't care about that though. its not something that massively affects someones vacation enough for them to be angry at them and it has no effect on their bottom line (if anything removing or moving them would have an adverse affect on it), so therefore they have no incentive to make change. if im not mistaken they are 10 year contracts and the last of them were sold in 2010 so they wont be able to do anything until at least 2020.

            I don't mind them and am not sure returning the area to the old would be a big improvement. Perhaps nostalgia is fooling people.

              The contracts likely guarantee their display, not the design of the display.

                I can't comment on that as I have never seen the contract itself, however I'm sure there is something in it that stipulates a general area at the very least that it is going to be displayed. If they didn't have that legally they could start sticking them inside bathroom stalls or something like that. regardless this is kind of off topic. at the end of the day there are two truths: they have to display these things until the contracts are up and it would cost a substantial amount of money to remove them with no monetary gain in return for disney. therefore nothing will be done about it until the contract is up.

                  They were giving the buyers the impression that their photos would be displayed in that area in that particular manner for that length of time. I think it's not worth the hassle of the company to move them before the contracts are up.

                  They won't get rid of them till 2020. Most guests don't have a problem with them. Only this tiny amount of people do, so the company will have no interest in removing them for the time being.

                    I found a section of the contract in a blog post:

                    "the sculpture may be replaced or relocated within Walt Disney World at any time, and that the image may be permanently removed on or after the 20th anniversary of its installation."

                      Well done, Danlb_2000! Thank you!
                      So move them tomorrow. Maybe to a garden between the MK and the Grand Californian.

                          They could even dump them in the middle of a swamp somewhere on property and still in accordance with the contract.

                            They could have a twofer - take the slabs, put them somewhere unused Flamingo Crossings and stick the Big Hat over them.

                            They could even call it a "brand new exciting guest experience that's covered from the elements to enhance the enjoyment of the area".

                              Those slabs will never be moved... as previous poster said.. moving them is not going to cause more people to come.. having them does not make less people come.. there is ZERO incentive for them to be moved as far as business is concerned.
