  • [Rumor] Phil holmes fired! Hooray!!!!!!!

    Heard on the other Disney websites that Phil Holmes has been shown the door. Don't feel bad for him he helped ruin Walt Disney World particularly magic kingdom with his pressler-style cost cutting and not maintaning the park. He also lobbied against adding new attractions.

    Hopefully this means a push towards the Lassetter-style philosphy regarding the parks (i.e more attractions, more attractions like EE that are non-movie (character) specific.

          I hate to rain on your parade, but... this hasn't been confirmed yet.

          WDW1974 posted on the other magical forum that he's still chasing this down. So the celebration might be a bit premature.

            I have CM friends who saw Phil today. I highly doubt this is true.

              Individuals on another magical site has confirmed otherwise, but no one knows 100% sure.

              Use the "rumor" sign instead of the "news" one.

                I have definately not heard this. Seems like one of those things that if it were true, it would have spread to fast that there would be no doubt.

                  I don't understand why its so bad to have rides based on movie characters. Wasn't that what Disney was built on...characters?

                    It's not necessarily bad to have rides based on movie characters, but lately that's all Disney seems to be doing. Rides based on Disney characters also used to be solely in Fantasyland. Now character based attractions are littered throughout the entire resort, whether it fits the theme of the land (or park) or not. What many would consider the most memorable and quintessencial Disney attractions (Pirates, Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Space Mountain, BTMRR, etc) aren't based on established Disney properties.

                      I think people are more annoyed by his apparent lack of interest in caring for attractions, building new things (substantial things) and in general not running the park to certain CMs and guests expectations.

                      It could be that Phil was trying to please someone higher up like Meg or Jay who might care less about Pirates current shape or how old the afternoon parade is or how outdated Act 4 of CoP is etc.

                        Just because they may or may not be letting Phil go doesn't mean that there are changes coming to WDW or that it was for cause, they have been laying off a lot of management lately at WDW to cut overhead costs, he just may be the upper end of the management furlows...

                          I have no problem with that. In fact, just rode the new "Monsters Inc Ride & go Seek" ride at TDL today... and as expected, it's 1000 times a better attraction over the huge TV Monster show you all got at the MK.
                          Phil Holmes... fired or not, should be ashamed of himself.
