The broadcast really isn’t that bad...the studio is set up on the train station platform looking down mani st...kinda hard to see the castle bc of the sun but not bad...lots of people in town square sporting their teams gear

I think the word you're looking for is SyNeRGy! :cautious: :bored: :hilarious:

Well there goes that conspiracy theory out the window.🤪 As an aside...I don’t think I’m ready for college football and it’s promotion of slime bucket schools just yet. Ocean kayaking on deck

Shocker. The sportscasters are promoting the parks. “Favorite ride”. Walking through GE with Corso wearing a Mickey T-shirt. GE “opens Thursday.”

I do: $0 The NCAA doesn't sell any college football TV rights, the individual schools and conferences do.

Right “Disney World” = MK.

They also know the only chance they have to sell trips realistically is by selling the magic kingdom on tv to this demographic

It was...but it’s a great one, isn’t it??

JohnDAug 22, 2019

Because Disney owns ESPN and it’s a few days before SW:GE opening and will be a great opportunity to promote it. But why MK instead of HS for GameDay? Because MK is the essence of Disney and everyone recognizes Cinderella Castle.

“Bowel” LOL! Something tells me that isn’t a typo.

Ah! Understood, I guess I wasn’t looking at the two happening at the same time. It’s a win for me to college football back again and a little earlier, regardless.
