    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I think it is my favorite plus'd monorail yet. Whimsical.

    Wish they hadn't put the banners on the side. Looks like the cheesy adverts you see on city buses...

    Indeed. Cute isn't enough, advertising on banners the overall purpose. Cute little Monsters not a strong enough message.

    Little is sacred at Disney anymore, Disney threw that out the window when they put up billboards in DHS, started turning their parades into vacation infomercials. Wouldn't be surprised to see cheesy buses wrapped soon and Disney can have a moving billboard in the parks if they slap advertising on the trains at the Magic Kingdom.

    The days are long gone of shutting the outside world out of the World, likely the endless marketing will be ramped up in the future.

    Kind of like Facebook, Microsoft, Google amongst others who know what WDW will do to use us for marketing, perhaps the new rfid system will play a role in data mining. It is unfortunate that it has to a large degree transformed from magic to marketing. But what can you do.

    Not a darn thing.

    I just saw this. Note the new pie doesn't have any cute characture on top, it too is stamped marketing on the food advertising Disney Boardwalk. Disney is getting very good at using everything as a marketing tool.

    I guess I'm just impervious to marketing, because I see nothing offensive there.

    Is the brownie good? That's all I care about.

    Besides, what's the difference between selling you a brownie at the Boardwalk, or selling you a keychain from there? Or putting your merchandise in a bag the has Boardwalk stamped on it?

    Or as you pointed out, a cheesy advertising banner on a monorail right?

    For Disney even a pie is a marketing tool. Offensive no, but I like your description, cheesy.

    If they want to pay me they can paint marketing on my shirt, my pants and my car if its the right price. I already provide enough free marketing for Disney.
