        over 30,000 in a 24 hour period, if it continues to track at that rate the stock holders will take notice, Especially if the internal struggle between Chepak and Iger has any merit.
        BGood! It's not just my motto its my name!

I know I'm probably in the minority of this, but I think the ship sailed once the company passed out of the hands of people who actually care about the parks and such and into the hands of your typical business person. You can't put the toothpaste back in the tube. If anything, we're lucky that the decline has been this slow, that so many great things still continue to exist, and that so many of the CMs are still trying to do what they can to keep Walt's original vision alive.

              You're right. The 'mindset' of the people who hired Chapek hasn't changed. Chances are he'd be replaced with someone with the same priorities. At this point I don't know what it would take to put the brakes on this runaway train.

                It won't. All it will do is get you possibly blacklisted by Disney if you plan to work for them. A quick internet search and your name pops up on it.

                Don't bother with useless petitions.

                  Rapidly approaching 40,000.

                  Regardless of its chances of accomplishing its stated goal, this petition has clearly tapped into something.

                    It's sort of pathetic to see disney parks media sites and figures push this kind of stuff. They're unhappy with the way things are, and for good reason, but everything they do all day every day just encourages people to give disney their money. If they really want change, they should all just tell people not to visit the parks until all of the most egregious problems are addressed. The same people will tell you to sign a petition to fire the CEO right after telling you where you can buy the latest holiday churro for $15. These guys basically prop up Chapek's Disney constantly only to take a three paragraph break to briefly mention how terrible it is, before go back to propping it up again as if they didn't just tell you how bad it is.

                    Put your money where your mouth is or shut your mouth.

                            When was the last time that any of you ran a multi billion dollar company? Or any company for that matter?
                            I’ll wager the answer is never.
                            Chapek answers to the shareholders period, and not to a bunch of internet tough guys.
                            I’m not saying it’s right or good, I’m just saying this is the new normal and a silly petition ain’t gonna change a dang thing

                              Everybody loves singing “Disney is a business” when they want to own the APs, but as soon as “Disney is a business” owns them too, they change their tune.

                                Thankfully I'm not the benchmark for what a great business leader looks like.

                                I agree that the petition won't do anything (except perhaps make more fans aware of the concerns) but I disagree that a consumer has no right to voice concerns when one is unhappy with a product. I'm certainly glad people didn't have that mentality during the "Promote Paul Pressler" era.

                                Also, while most petitions are moot, some can have an impact, as documented in this article.

                                  that has no relevance to this conversation. ​​​​​

                                    I will just state this fact, when shareholder ignore the public that provides their stock revenue they are often met with a lot less on their dividends. Will they make a decision on a petition no, should it raise the red flag of concern for the direction of the company then they are setting themselves up for having the shock of stock dividends plummeting. While it seems data driven Chapek is someone the Share holders would love, when the creative decisions are no longer innovative and creating products worth spending lots of money on than the return on that product will drop. It has happened before look at the dark days of Disney of the 80's There is a whole documentary on the return to creative excellence called Waking sleeping beauty. The problem you have here is the same problem that Bob has is you seen Disney like any other Multi-Billion dollar company when in fact it is very different and therefore needs to be run differently.
