Coming to one little girl's rescue inside WDW's "Alien Encounter"
Okay. I know. Your head is swimming from all the negative stuff that you've been reading about Comcast and Eisner and Henson. I'm betting that you could use some good Disney-related news right about now. Well, here you go then. Read this letter from Kenny H. Who's writing in today NOT because he wants...

Okay. So maybe the glass IS half empty after all ...
Jeese, now I REALLY don't know what to think. For over a week now, we've been running these stories here at JimHillMedia.com that list various complaints that WDW cast members who work at "Kilimanjaro Safari" have about the attraction. Well, two more letters came rolling in. Both from Disney World vets...

So, you think that YOU'VE got it tough?
Man, who knew that one little story would strike such a nerve? A week ago today, JHM ran " Cast Members at DAK's Kilimanjaro Safari don't think that WDW management is being very fair-i to them ," an article that detailed how difficult how tough it was to work at DAK's "Kilimanjaro Safari" ride. Well...

"The cry babies who runs Kilimajaro Safari is complaining again? Well, cry me a Kali River ..."
Jeese, you think that you know someone. I mean, I had thought -- given that letter that JHM published here yesterday (the one that described -- in great detail -- how difficult it was to for WDW cast members to work at DAK's "Kilimanjaro Safari" attraction) sounded so arduous ... I thought for sure that...

Cast Members at DAK's Kilimanjaro Safari don't think that WDW management is being very fair-i to them
"Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable." That's what I honestly thought as I was reading the following letter. That someone could really work this hard at a job that sounded extremely stressful and incredibly hard to do ... yet only get paid $6.70 an hour! Don't believe me? Read on: Dear Jim: I am a...

Message in a Bottle
Normally, JimHillMedia.com doesn't run stories like these. Articles that complain about trash at the theme parks. Chipped paint on the park benches. Loose thatch on the roof of the "Enchanted Tiki Room." Stories like that? I tend to think of as more like the stuff that Al Lutz runs. (FYI: The above comment...

Another Monday Melange
Boy, it seems like the Walt Disney Company just can't win for losing these days. What do I mean? Well, just days after the Mouse had staged a pretty successful promotional event at this year's Tournament of Roses parade (I.E. Rolling out the tallest float in the parade's history as a way to promote Disney...

It's going to take more than just magic to pull off all of WDW's "Magical Gatherings" program
Okay. Quick show of hands. Who here watched the "Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade" on ABC last Thursday morning? (God, look who I'm asking. You're a Disney dweeb, right? So of course you watched this program ...) Well, I -- like you -- sat and watched this year's special. And just marveled at this...

A Waste of "Space"
As you might expect, I got a lot of e-mail yesterday, keying off of the fact that WKMG-TV in Orlando had used as me as a source for their "Mission: Space" story. This was the news report where Mike DeForest revealed that Disney -- having finally faced the fact that this Future World attraction's "protein...

A JHM Reader Challenge: The Epcot English Lesson
Last Friday night -- after a long, tortuously slow commute in and out of the city (We had to go into Logan Airport to pick up Michelle and Alice for my parent's 50th anniversary party) -- Nancy and I decided that we all needed a break. Which is why (later that same evening) we all found ourselves at...
