DVDave: Detinwolf: I'd like a girl in a Jasmine costume.  Mainly because that's just a hot woman in a belly dancing outfit.

I just want to go for a ride on Jasmine's magic carpet.


But does the carpet match the drapes?

fusillade762: Regarding Snow White:

The Walt Disney Company currently has a trademark application pending with the US Patent and Trademark Office, filed November 19, 2008, for the name "Snow White" that would cover all live and recorded movie, television, radio, stage, computer, Internet, news, and photographic entertainment uses, except literature works of fiction and nonfiction

How do you get a trademark for a character that's been public domain for 100+ years?


Mouse will find a way.

This is the shiat that Disney is an expert in doing.  They have an army of lawyers who do nothing but claim ownership of public domain stories and characters.  The copyright extension?  That should have been called "The Disney Act".  The major lobbiest (briber) was disney because their oldest works were at or near the end of copyright life.

Disney Plan of Evil

1. Claim ownership of public domain stories.
2. Extend copyright on their now owned public domain stories to effectively "forever".
3. Profit, biatch.

WienerButt: I worked at Disney during college and banged the girl who played Ariel.

Boy, was she a freak. She was exceptionally cool, however, as a lot of them were a bit snobby.

A lot of guys who work there, especially in that department, are super gay. Being straight and relatively good looking at Disney means you have a revolving door of cute girls.


Seconded. The Disney College Program was the best thing I've ever done.

I did an audition for the Lion King parade back in the mid 90s. I was the token straight guy in the audition.

I have tried to talk my 20 year old 1st cousin into going down to disneyworld and working a year or two.  The kid is incredibly straight (manwh*rish) and is a good dancer and actor.  I told him he could have his pick of the girls there because the vast majority of the guy workers we have seen on trips down there were gay.

Pocohontas at the animal kingdom was the hottest one I saw on our trips.  She was obviously a hispanic pocohontas which was right up my alley.

Yeah, Disney is probably more responsible for getting the length of copyrights extended out to ridiculous lengths of time, well beyond what they were ever intended to be.

mhd: dittybopper: They could make double that, easy, by wearing the costumes and make-up and charging for sex.

Relevant.


I was expecting a video interview of Jayden Cole... former Disney princess turned pr0n star.

A close friend was just fired from her job as a maid at Disneyland.  They have extremely strict attendance policies, and have no mercy on someone who makes very little and has their car break down, despite her having been a loyal employee for two years.

No surprise there.  Disney sees all employees as easily replaceable commodities.  They have no loyalty for the people who work for them, so they deserve no loyalty in return.

"Disney" is a corporation. Corporations cannot "see" anything.

The actual PERSON  at Disney in charge of the costume characters is absolutely nothing like you describe.

Mobius strip of human stupidity: Disney is in the process (at this very moment) of solving many of the issues that have come up with the walk around characters over the decades. Both face and costume. The results of that work will be seen in the new park currently under construction in Shanghai. Everything is going to be very different after that park opens.


And what would that entail?

ALL the characters will have unprecedented abilities to retain information and communicate well with the guests. That's about all I can say. But it's pretty cool stuff.


But most importantly Disney (like any successful company) places huge value on the employees who are the literally the FACE of the product. The notion these people are treated like galley slaves during this "carreer" only to be retired by Walt's ghost in a Sandman costume when they turn 27 is ludicrous.

The first thing you learn when you build a company is talented people are your most precious resource.

Ah yes the wrist bands...the RFID stuff.

I was just hoping they would resolve having two Goofys out at once like I saw the other day within 2minute walking distance of each other.

That's some awesome corporate babble you've got going on there.  If you say it enough times, I'm sure even you start believing it.  Look, no one wants to see a 45 year Jasmine with underarm flab waving at them so let's just say it's a safe assumption that those "faces of the product" pretty much have to call it quits sometime in their 20's, talented or no.  Doesn't mean Disney is running an antebellum plantation but nobody is going to make a career out of being a Disney princess.

While I am entirely unsure what you are saying in this post that contradicts mine I am happy to discuss it further. Just please understand my ability to comment on certain things is somewhat limited. I have spent the past four years visiting every Disney property on Earth and in meetings with the top brass to address this very situation. People get twitchy when you violate NDA's.

Oh yeah, all that tech they've been dropping bits and bytes about lately.  That is going to be equal parts awesome and paranoid.  Characters who know your kid's names, and really ingenious little tricks to involve the park attendees using provided info loaded into the wristband.  Like WestWorld, but without the android rebellion.

I always thought Westworld was one of the first bits of popular culture to use the computer virus as the justification for the rebellion. More like mans machines falling ill in human ways.

Which will go horribly wrong when someone fills in jokey/obscene names on the form/website.  Or when the character tries to figure out how to pronounce any of the creative ways people are spelling otherwise common names.

Yeah. It's impossible to imagine the people who invented theme parks and spawned them all over the world could ever be smart enough to figure that out.

Sorry. I was unnecessarily abrasive. Apologies. You made an excellent point. And I honestly have no idea how they are going to avoid that. But you can bet there are gonna be a bunch of giggling teen boys introducing their little sisters with a great deal of creativity. Make the princess curse is going to be an amusing game.
