    Wow. Suddenly I'm really glad I started this spin-off, just by my agreeing with the anti-Beatles mention. But yes, time to let it simmer and move back to the topic at hand.

    Re: Why do some people hate Disney?

    i find it interesting now where people are finding ways to knock Disney... there is a major anti-Disney sentiment that i seem to hear about how the parks look right now with the construction... i have had conversations with people who say things like, "well when Universal did Harry Potter there wasnt so much boarded up and it wasnt noticeable... This makes Universal better..."

    really... you have to be kidding me... considering HP land was put in the back corner of the park literally forcing you to walk all of IoA to get there... oh and btw... Disney is trying to integrate what was previously in Fantasyland to the new part... so it doesnt look like it was just dropped in there... a crazy argument to have...

    Re: Why do some people hate Disney?

    Hating Disney was a counter-cultural idea in the 70's/80's. Some people are just too punk for Disney. That's A-OK for them.

    Judging by the initial sentiments in this thread, it's not the dislike people have for Disney, but more the putting down of it that some people seem to enjoy. I always have a hard time understanding people that seek to validate their own likes by stating that the things they dislike are not good. Those things are usually good to someone else, and when you express your distaste, you just bring everyone down. This is evidenced by three pages of "I like this band, but that band ****s because I don't like them" going on in this thread.

    Like what you like. Seek out people who like it too. Don't waste time disliking things. When you do, you just waste time.

    Then the question becomes, are we discussing people hating Disney parks? Disney the machine?

    I would agree that it is hating Disney the machine. Last semester, in my Film as Literature class, a girl said, and I quote, "I wish Pixar would take a year off so someone else can win [an Oscar] for once."

    Re: Why do some people hate Disney?

    Posting this type of question on a forum where everyone has come because they have at least one thing in common, a love of Disney, probably opens (or opened in this case) it up to being a war of words and opinions.

    The bottom line is, we are all open to like and dislike what we want, that's the beauty of being free thinking human beings. Why do people like some things and dislike others? Because they are free to do so. Everyone has their own opinions. To make it specific... do I understand why anyone could dislike a visit to Epcot? No... but I don't have to understand it, I just have to accept it.

    If the world was full of like minded people, who all agreed on what was fun and what wasn't, what was entertaining and what wasn't, etc. it'd be an awfully boring place!
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Because the haters secretly love it, they just don't want to admit it.

    Most people that i have talked to that hate Disney have never really been exposed to Disney. They have never been to the parks. They haven't watched many Disney movies. They really know nothing about Disney at all.

    Exactly.

    This was part of the point I was making earlier when the Crabapple brothers went on their anti-everythingtheyhate screed.

    I think it takes an incredibly small mind to claim you hate something you know nothing about.

    I would imagine that some people want a hassle-free vacation. And anyone who has ever planned a trip to Disney certainly knows that it's anything but hassle-free. Look at the boards... filled with posts about people who are booking dinner five monts in advance of their trips. It can get insane. Then when you get there, it's go-go-go all the time. Crowds, lines, heat. If I'm going to enjoy heat, it had better be on the white sands in front of crystal clear blue water. Vacations are about relaxing for many people.
