      Pixar retains its own branding for a reason, because it has a respect that the Disney name has lost over the past few years. The Walt Disney Company may own Pixar Animation Studios, but Pixar is not Disney, it's Pixar.

          Yeah people really hate "brands" here but personally i think the Pixar characters are some of the best out there and i love attractions that incorporate them.

              A few shared personelle do not change that there is an entirely different structure within each organization. Pixar also has a different culture than Disney, although many would say the Pixar culture has been infected by the Disney culture. And still, if Pixar IS Disney, then there is no need for the Pixar name to be retained. The continued use of the name has meaning, because it represents something that Disney does not and has its own legacy that is known in common, but also distinct from the Disney legacy.

                well i can agree with that but you cant ignore the fact that Pixar in a way, has saved DCA

                  Re: stop calling DCA Pixar land

                  When I go to DCA , the Pixar attractions (other than FFF) are what mainly scream "family" to me like Carsland, Turtle Talk, and TSMM. They may not fit the theme of their respective lands (like Monsters Inc), but don't forget that Disneyland is guilty for plopping Pixar rides in the wrong places as well (glares at FNSV)

                    Exactly. Pixar is Pixar in every creative sensibility and in its internal management structure. The fact that it was purchased by Disney doesn't make it "Disney" in any way except as a business entity. The fact that Disney customers are comfortable erasing the difference between the two studios is irrelevant to what they in fact are -- different studios with different histories, different heritages, different personnel, and different creative sensibilities.

                        Re: stop calling DCA Pixar land

                        There's no real problem with Pixar in the parks. Now it's quite obvious that DCA has the most Pixar influence out of all the other Disney parks in the world but despite that it works. Disney does own Pixar, yes. But the fact of the matter is that Pixar is not Disney and Disney is not Pixar. They may have a close connection to one another and one may own the other but they are two separate companies with two separate styles. Despite that they work very well together and because of that Pixar will always have a presence in the parks whether you like it or not. The only park without a Pixar-based attraction to my knowledge is Epcot...oh wait, Nemo and Friends...maybe DisneySea...oops, TSMM...DLP? Nope, forgot about Laser Blast...see my point? No matter what, each and every Disney theme park will have a Pixar-themed attraction/area. Pixar has become a part of the Disney legacy and as time goes by and the Pixar name gets even bigger and bigger, we'll be seeing a lot more of Woody and Buzz in the Happiest Place on Earth and her sisters.

                          How so? Before Toy Story Midway Mania! most of the Pixar additions were quite small in nature and part of the rather haphazard attempt at boosting the park's performance. Toy Story Midway Mania!, while popular, does not seem to have had a huge impact on the performance of the park. Cars Land is clearly very popular and may well help turn the fortunes of the park, but that is a single property, but I also think that had the Cars films never existed a similarly loving synthesis of Route 66 on a grand scale would also be well received.

                          Plenty of people also think that Don Bluth's animated films are Disney films. Same for the works of Dreamworks Animation.

                            What people think doesn't define the reality of which studio is which. When Fritz the Cat opened, Disney was deluged with angry mail from parents who took their kids to it thinking it was a Disney animated feature. Many continued to insist it was a Disney film, even after seeing the credits for another studio, and even after Disney disclaimed all ownership of it.

                            Ask the artists at Pixar if they're Disney, and ask the artists at Disney if they're Pixar. You'll get a resounding NO.

                            The fact that Pixar makes great animated films with great characters is irrelevant to the claim that "Pixar is Disney." Pixar is owned by Disney as a business entity, and Disney distributes their films -- but there the similarity ends.

                            Bingo.

                            The stories are legion of the number of artists at Emeyrville and Burbank whose uncles, aunts, grandparents and even parents routinely ask what they did on this film or that -- films that were done by another studio.

                            When it comes to animation, most people don't know which studio is which... and even fewer know to which era of animation history a given film belongs. (The numbers of Disney management who are even more ill-informed than the public on this score would make your jaw drop.)

                                A lot of PIXAR's founding members were mentored by some of the Nine Old Men. So there is a connection there. Regardless of how their companies are structured, PIXAR makes quality family entertainment. Just like Disney does. And PIXAR wouldn't be the success it is now without having their films distributed by Disney in the beginning.

                                        Winnie the Pooh in animation is Disney. The Disney Studio did the first animation adaptation from the Pooh books, back in the 1960s.

                                        The Muppets are Disney in business name only, because Disney bought the company. In soul and spirit, the Muppets are still Jim's, and always will be.
