Like this for example...They did an entire TV Special on the opening of The Living Seas....This special....Had Musical Numbers in it....Nothing is more confusing than this..

It's also called advertising. Universal did the same when they "whored" both WWHoP lands on NBC. Walt kind of "whored" his new rides too. It would be terribly foolish of Disney (or any company) not to use their resources to promote something they've sunk a billion dollars into. That's something I would criticize them for... for NOT advertising.

And showcased a Pandora food item on the chew.

I saw all of Monday's show and pieces of today and from what I saw it was obvious that they toned down the political stuff. ... I really don't need to see Whoopi (always Califia to me!) faking enthusiasm for Pandora. FWIW, Disney used ABC all week. I left the TV on in the family room last night and came back about 12:45 and ABC was on. Just as I was about to put James Corden on CBS on they said the next story was on Pandora and showed the reporter walking with James Cameron and Joe Rohde I watched the report. It was all PR. So, they have whored the project on GMA in early morning, The View in late morning and Nightline in late night.

I think s/he was responding to the people who complained that The View still talked about politics when broadcasting from WDW because people like to pretend the real world doesn't exist when they visit Disney. Tony made the pretty reasonable point that it would have been counterproductive to turn the show into an explicit Disney informercial for the week.

:cautious: I was too. I "taped" it on VHS and watched it in the evening to see the parks. :cautious:

At least Disney XD would be a perfect channel to do this since it's not filled with teen sitcoms but unfortunately not everybody has access to that channel.

I always thought that The Disney Channel or Disney XD could do that. Instead it's a lot of teen stuff, which I'm sure gets a lot of ratings. But I wish there were more nostalgic programming like WWOD. They could schedule that stuff for the evening hours.

Have those episodes of Bozo at WDW available online? I came across this article

I wish ABC brought back The Wonderful World Of Disney being aired during Friday nights (I could be wrong but didn't it used to air primetime on Friday or sometime during the weekends) since it actually felt special.

JohnDMar 10, 2017

I think you're arguing for the sake of arguing. I don't recall saying The View would use it's entire show but ABC, being owned by Disney, has vehicles to promote Disney parks. It's no different than The Chew broadcasting from Epcot during F&W Festival.

All of you must be delusional, as only the current TWDC administration does commercials and advertisements. They never used to do things like that in the past 60 years. :cautious:
