"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...

Seven Tips for Getting the Most out of this weekend's "ABC Super Soap" event at Disney-MGM
For football fans, it's the Super Bowl. For guys who collect comic books, it's San Diego's Comic-Con. And -- for Disney dweebs -- it's the National Fantasy Fan Club (THE club for Disneyana enthusiasts) 's annual convention. But -- if you're a serious ABC soap opera fan -- there's only one place that...

Debunking Big Thunder Rumors
It used to be something that theme park fans would consider a comical cliché. How you'd board a Disney theme park attraction and then ... Something would go horribly wrong!? I mean, think about it, people. Isn't this the exact same story point that drives the action in Disneyland's "Star Tours" and ...

When it comes to Disney, when is "good enough" good enough?
As you read this, 2000 journalists are in the process of being wined and dined at Walt Disney World. The Mouse has really rolled out the red carpet for these reporters. Treating them to after-hours parties at the Florida theme parks, which feature live performances by top name entertainers. (This year...
