      The more exposure they Disney parks have, the better. It doesn't matter what the slogan is.

        "WhereSpeak" sounds like something out of George Orwell's 1984 - definately not a happy place.

          I actually agree that Disney is "Where Dreams Come True" because there were times i went as a child, and things happened throughout the day that made me say "this isn't the happiest place on earth" I love the re-branding here.

            ORDDU: Actually, it DOES matter what a slogan is, when the particular slogan in question has been so closely identified with a particular park and the man who created it. A witch wouldn't expect a Disney apologist with Jay Rasulo-like visions for the future Disney theme parks to understand this concept, of course.

              I don't mind the "Where Dreams Come True" campaign as a whole for Disney parks. I just don't like the thought that "The Happiest Place on Earth" is being abandoned altogether.

                Change is a good thing, it truly is, but it seems like they are doing too many things at once and it's not making me happy.

                  Chernabog: "What was that?"

                  Gn2Dlnd (frowns): "WhereSpeak."

                  Chernabog: "WhereSpeak?"

                  Gn2Dlnd (points): "THERE Speak. THERE Castle!"

                  Chernabog: "Why are you talking like that?"

                  Gn2Dlnd: "I thought you wanted me to...."

                        This is what happens when Marketing folks break one of their own rules: know your
                        customers and your product.

                        And to tailor a message/product for those customers.

                        It's stupid to not be able to recognize the inherent differences between the park.
                        But this is what happens when you go to marketing folks who have not worked
                        AT THE PARKS!

                        If one doesn't know any difference between WDW, DLR, TDR, DLP, and HKDL
                        then you come with the assumption that you NEED a global messaging, then this
                        is exactly what you come up with.

                          I know another theme park company that tried something like this.

                          Six Flags.

                          They're doing just fabulous nowadays.

                            Where deep fried churros clog arteries.

                            Where "happiness" ends after 50 years.

                            I hate "WhereSpeak" - REC has used it for their marketing campaign for the last 10 years with "Where Fantasy Reins" Way to follow!

                              I assume that "WHERESPEAK" knows that Mr. Beckham will be portraying Prince Charming, rather than "Prince Philip", right?
