  • DLR Money

    I was thinking with all of DLR's money problems, why doesen't WDW just throw some money over this way? I highly doubt that WDW is struggling or anything, why doesent the disney family share with the other disney family. We could have our DLR as big as WDW if WDW would throw some greenback over our way.

    For many years this sort of thing was done all the time. WDW was built with DL money and both WDW and DL supported the studio through the 70s and early 80s, but after Eisner and Wells came in in '84 Disney was broken down into business units and each unit had to prove their worth independently. The theory goes...if the business is a worthwile venture it should make the money necessary for re-investment in that same business. Most large businesses are run this way today (not that that makes it right). All profits are turned over to corporate. It is then up to corporate to decide where profits are re-invested (or invest in new businesses, or give to the shareholders as dividens, or buy back Disney stock). The only way for DL to get profits from WDW or any other division is for corporate to give it to them after it is added to the overall pool of profit. Right now Wall Street (and Disney Co. follows the rules set by Wall Street) says theme parks are a bad investment...so Disney will not be reinvesting in the parks in a meaningful way for some thime. Expect profits to go to ABC, ESPN and International expansion. Current management will do nothing to upset Wall Street.

      I think it is a load of crap how disney is tied in with ABC, ESPN and other networks and companys who eat up Disneys money. They need to seperate that and get Disney focused back on Disney!

      Besides....nobody watchs ABC.....name one good show that became a phenomenon that ever originated from ABC.
      *BUZZ* Times Up! The answer is absolutly nothing!


      The other thing that kills me, if that is true about how DL helped fund WDW way back in time to help it become what it is today....then think about what DLR could become if WDW were to fund it now!

          umm, Desperate Housewives is on ABC. Huge hit. Not that it justifies ABC as a great network.

            One word: LOST.

            I also appreciated the US version of "Whose Line?'.

            Back on topic, I think the theme parks should have a higher level of priority when it comes to money and funding. :botox:

              Oh i'm sorry.....I thought I said a GOOD show.....not crap. :botox:

              I think that if a network like ABC is going to be associated with Disney, then it needs to be a wholesome channel full of family shows,....not fake wholesome like family channel or current disneychannel......more like older disneychannel from 10 years ago.

                    Step by Step? Family Matters? Full House? Boy Meets World? Home Improvement? I believe those were all also ABC television shows. Not to mention Desperate Housewvies, Lost, and Grey's Anatomy.

                    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.
