    Kodak pulling out of remaining sponsorships

    As of December 31, 2012 Kodak will pull out of their remaining sponsorships at WDW and DL. At WDW they are the PhilharMagic, Muppet 3D, Picture Spots, Camera Center at Epcot, Cover Story and Garden Gate Gifts.



    Signage will start to be removed early in 2013.

    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.

    This is Eastman's big chance to make a comeback. I hope they don't blow it.

    Film not likely. Memory cards for digital cameras, plenty.

    Bummer to lose a sponsor with such a long history with the company, perhaps they can turn Figment back to green now though.

    But to be honest, I'm impressed Kodak is still a functioning company.

    When they announced their bankrupcy earlier this year, they claimed they were going to focus on the digital age. Really Kodak? Good idea. Their decision came a bit late so I don't expect them to be around much longer. Unless the need for instamatic cameras ever resurges.

    Did you hear Marty Sklar busting on Kodak during his Epcot 30th speech?

    Not usually one to seek out speeches, though I might have to so I can listen for the jab.

    Re: Kodak pulling out of remaining sponsorships

    This was just a matter of time... When they filed bankruptcy I was surprised that they weren't forced to abandon the sponsorships then... I know the attractions will be fine... But what do hey do with the beginning ofthe Muppetvision preshow...? No more "Up Chuck"...?

    Oh that is one of my favorite parts, not so much him holding up the Kodak sign but the up chuck humor. Wonder if they will just leave it, or rework that tiny segment. They just cleaned up that whole preshow a year or so ago and still looks clean.

    I know... If I remember correctly they don't actually mention Kodak... Maybe they could just superimpose another logo over that one...

    Right, because it's just "up, Chuck" and nothing to do with Kodak.
