    Re: Do we overreact to much?

    Yeah, I guess the reaction really just depends on the person some are more passionate than others and I would commend you for that. I never visited the parks much at this point and while I LOVE Disney, I also love other theme parks, plus in an situation I'm a half glass full person. While I can't find much good for say the current version of Pirates I'm just happy these attractions are still here, I find it quite easy to "overlook" Sparrow.

      The media often referes to MiceChat as a "Disney watchdog group". You can interpret that however you wish.

            Actually, I'm impressed with how polite most people are on this forum, even with their passions. Although discussions sometimes do turn not so friendly, I also read appologies when someone is called on it, and most people disagree with respect.

            So, No, I don't think people here generally over react too much.

            But if you don't agree with me, you are WRONG!!!!!!

                These don't benefit anyone unless you consider the catharsis beneficial. Yelling doesn't fix the problem, nor does it give that person any credibility. Opponents of change don't have to and shouldn't keep quiet, but there's definitely a way to say what you want to say without sounding extremely loathing.
                Meaning no disrespect, I think that's completely backwards. The issue of "credibility" is Disney's responsibility, not their customers'. They're the multibillion dollar corporation who claim to have the #1 premium theme park product on the planet. They're the ones who charge (and upcharge) ever-higher prices. Disney's customers deserve to have Disney deliver on their own hype. And when they don't, the customers have every right to be furious. The idea that the Disney customer needs to avoid "overreacting" and that the Disney Corporation deserves to be treated with kid gloves because of a heritage that they themselves trash with every new upcharge is ludicrous and anti-consumer. It's not up to the customer to "fix the problem," it's up to Disney to deliver what their heritage, their hype, and their high prices promise.

                  Problem is, those "little things" always add up. We call it "decling by degrees" around here.

                  What you call "overreactions" are entirely legitimate criticisms from people who have seen the results of decline by degrees.

                      I think we react more with an appropriate passionate manner rather than overreact. Those who have overreacted have been dealt with. And there's gonna be more Disney news in which we react with passion. I can hardly wait for it.
                      I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                        Meh.
                        Some people think any reaction is an overreaction.

                        Take this thread, for example...

                          My OP might have shown that and maybe it was, I guess since my history teacher has my class doing some serious debates I figured it would be an interesting topic to talk about. Reading different posts and seeing others reactions I had my fair share in the duration take my Mission Space 2 post. As others said some are more passionate than others and maybe I'm a bit less than others, some have seen more changes than I did since I first became a Disney fan.

                            That's not over reacting. That's Bat Sh*t Crazy.
                            I have seen some of those posts & try to ignore them. There was one about a broken effect in a certain non original dark ride in Fantasyland. The poster was "postal" and the entry was very memorable & makes the above comment look mild. Every time we enjoy that attraction we always comment about that effect & the importance of it working.
                            Morticia & I always have a good laugh. Now when something goes awry in life, we just mention the name of that effect & it makes the problem less important.
                            Even the bat sh*t crazy posts can have a positive effect.

                              Yes, yes we do. We are fans. Fan is short for fanatic. That's just what fans do, they overreact. Nothing wrong with it. Some opinions might see a wee bit absurd to the casual Disney guest, that's understandable. Overreactions are always good for interesting conversations at least.

                                Yeah, it's all just nostalgia.

                                Nostalgia for imagination, creativity, originality, immersiveness, character, humor, beauty, style, setting, detail, interactivity and uniqueness. Those tired old concepts are so 1960s.

                                But who needs any of that anyway, when you have visceral thrills, million-dollar special effects and imported movies, characters, pop trends and theme park trends.

                                  I'd say, there's more over-dramatic critiques on here than anything.

                                    Not only do you overreact, but there is WAY too much complaining going on. If you keep in mind what P.T. Barnum said about being able to please some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time, just figure all of you will never always be happy all the time. That's life?

                                          Yes and no. Not everyone here has the same passions. But when we come together, it can seem like we are a screaming hive-mind of disney haters ). But that isn't the case.

                                          For example, I HATE the idea of next gen but dont mind movie tie-ins. Someone may be the complete opposite. Some may love both. Individually, I don't think any of us on this site really overreact. We each probably have a few different things we hate and eventually it seems that all of micechat hates everything disney.
                                          In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.
