Re: Happiest Place on Earth?
I'm torn between agreeing with parts of this post and wanting to pinch you real hard.

I've done the math and I can't imagine if Disney was his primary job that he could have his own apartment (had enough of the roommate thing in college) buy a car, have a wife or let alone someday have children and send them to college. I believe he would have to be very careful always and save for a long time to do anything out of the ordinary.

Will he ever completely leave? I doubt it.
