    Mr. Lasseter, next time you're in town, the wife and I would love to have you over for dinner and to hear all about the next big Disney animation project. Oh, yeah, feel free to bring Brad Bird along, too. If I could hear him do Edna Mode, in person, I think I'd literally ROFL.
    Well thank you for the offer. I might take you up on it......

    I mean, wouldn't that be cool if that "Lasseter" guy went to your house. Just out of curiosity, what are we having?

      Of course they read these boards. Do you know how much they pay people to get their opinion about Disneyland? And here they can get it for free. Sure, it's from uber-fans but it's still free research and big wigs love not having to pay for opinions.

        I recall a topic about a fire hydrant on Main Street that got some surprising responses, a while back.

        Artificial-Turfing, hahahaha, yeah, it's pretty easy to pick many of those out. They stick out like a really bad Disney Marketing promo or commercial.

        However, once in a while they do come up with something so blantantly artificial, like the Main Street Wedding Proposal, that is really is entertaining.

                Ah, yes - I seem to recall some posts like that. Thanks for the clarification! :thumbup:

                  Hey.
                  Disney employees. Quit the browser program, and get back to AutoCad or Illustrator or Photoshop or whatever program you're paid to use in your job. Frontierland and Tomorrowland are in desperate need of your attention.
                  Sincerely,
                  The people who ultimately pay your rent.

                    And while they are at it .. cancel the plan to demolish the waterfalls and koi ponds in the DLH.

                    Dear Peoplemover Fans, If you want to see a new attraction that at least mimics the 1967 Peoplemover in a future Tomorrowland remodel, you need to write to the powers-that-be, and let them know. If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

                        I was being silly about the subs and the walk through but after darkbeer published some pics of the Mark Twain's rotting wood floors, the refurbishment was scheduled.

                        Coincidence? I don't think so.

                            Well, its obvious, other companies forums (Merlin) are littered with readers, but they very rarely post...

                              Whether or not they read and whether or not posts on here have any sway are two entirely different subjects. While they could potentially be related it is entirely possible that threads and posts are disregarded entirely.

                              If an individual is on here looking for support of a new show or attraction then chances are they will simply take the positive comments... just like Disney currently spins the various surveys.

                              I will say that I, and other members on here, have been contacted in the past in regards to various posts. So individuals within Walt Disney Co do read various posts and threads... but I'm not sure if any of that perusing translates into actual swaying power.

                                Some people that work at Disney have MiceChat accounts? Thats cool. But I guess they always have to ignore some ideas. Why can't everything be at Disneyland?

                                  One could easily assume that every professional with a heavy emotional investment in their business (not just this business but any business) reads the most relevant boards on the net at least part of the time, particularly in very specific or narrow fields where the conversation is easily followed. Wouldn't you be curious about what people are saying about your work in public? I would.

                                  Executives who don't have an emotional investment or particular interest in their product (or consumers) still tend to keep tabs on talk through employees (or even whole divisions) who surf the net for them. Increasingly, major companies are finding the talk on the net important enough not just to monitor but to influence the conversation.
                                  Those interested executive and managers, who don't have time, can have people provide relevant posts and threads. Even I don't have enough time to waste rummaging through all the posts on these boards (I don't see how some here are able to be productive elsewhere as it appears that they spend an inordinate amount of time posting here and/or "researching" at the parks). And I pretty much just skim just a few threads a day.

                                  As for actually posting here, I don't know that ANY executive would be doing that. It appears that there are some CM's that are able to provide some innocent posts without repercussions. I only know of one individual on another board who flaunted his access with some proprietary information. I don't believe he works for the company anymore.

                                    Disney is a big company and have a vested interest in making sure that they control the message about their products and services. 1) They want to know what we and others are saying about them and 2) they have lots of people posting here to spin things the way they want.

                                    As long as they aren't breaking any rules here, that's fine with us. Each individual member of this site is fully able to sift through the info they read and decide what is true, what is false, and what is propaganda.
                                    Reeeeeaaaaaallly? Now that is interesting! I wonder if anyone in this thread is a Disney executive. :unsure:

                                      For some reason I imagine Mike Eisner regularly visiting and crying quietly to himself listening to Evanescence.
