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.
    Mike, you are right... and in some cases that is the reason some people are against the Disney brand... but i think in many cases people already have a hatred... and those people will probably never be caught dead in a Disney park... in those cases... i say leave em be...

    Re: Why do some people hate Disney?

    The inlaws tried it in the late 80s. Did two parks in a day and then said they didn't enjoy themselves. Really, can't imagine why!


    Had a coworker who went with me to a conference in Orlando. She didn't like to plan any meals. Would rather sleep in every day (one conference she didn't go to a single thing until we presented- the other one she kept leaving the meetings she did attempt to go with). Then she wanted to go places to drink. (I don't drink) So she expected me to be with her to watch her drink and "meet" people who I didn't know or cared to know. So she would bash me for going to the park while she drank. Ummmmm I don't see the big upset. She just wasn't a Disney fan and doesn't see any attraction. I am okay with that but she was such a hater toward me if I had Disney music playing softly in my office. I mean- there were plenty of things she does/did that I had no interest in but didn't bash her. That's the part of it that I just really don't get.

    You don't like it, fine. Just don't trash me or call me unprofessional (while you are falling down drunk....).

    Excellent idea.

    I think another reason a few may "hate" it is because they always wanted to go as a kid, but their parents for whatever reason never took them.

    Others may simply look into and see the huge dollar amounts involved and just assume there's no way it's worth it.

    Kind of like the way I used to feel about the iPod.

    I also think maybe they went too fast through the parks and missed all the little touches? Missed the theming as "extra" but not necessary because Six Flags doesn't have it? Not sure.


    Just glad WDW doesn't have the Six Flags smell of melted ice cream and asphalt.

    We still haven't done a Six Flags even though we've got one about an hour down the road. I've kind of avoided it because I don't think it will stack up...

    That said, we do want to visit Cedar Point in Ohio one of these days. With the coasters they have there, I won't be concerned with the rest of the park.

    Some people still won't like it even if you lead them through the park and show them how to have a good time. I think some of you refuse to comprehend that Disney is not everyone's idea of fun. It's not that they are hostile, uneducated, jaded, or evil...they just don't like it.

    That's the point im trying to make... It really does t matter what we do... Some propel just aren't going to like the idea, the company, the parks, or the films that the Disney company represents...

    oh the plus side- of they don't like it that means fewer people to fight in the parks!

    EXACTLY! Why try to convert everyone; so lines will be even longer?

    Fortunately, or unfortunately, it doesn't mean that at all...

    It's a nice dream, though!
