Enough complaints and it will get heard in the ivory and gold (solid not paint or leaf) halls of Glendale

I actually prefer the 1x1x1 configuration of our space to DL's side-by-side. I dont know. DL's didn't blow my mind as much as I expected it to based off feedback. Yes, it's way better than ours, and it might be the best coaster at US Disney theme park. But that's about where it stops. If they're going to tear ours down, I'd hope for something unique again, not a DL clone or a DLP clone.

It looks like this refurb was cancelled.

I guess I'll have to use twitter ugh lol. Wouldn't I need to follow them as well? I actually would be hesitant to do so as I would like to work Animation for the company one day and wouldn't want to miss a chance due to "Bashing"

There is Something you can do. Mail WDW and TWDC complaints about the conditions in the parks. When at WDW and you see something subpar tweet it. There is nothing TWDC hates more that having the warts exposed

I wish there was something we could do, I actually sent Disney an email last year regarding WoL and UoE and received an email back from legal for an unsolicited idea and that they unfortunately cant use it. I understand why but I just wanted my voice to be heard.

This discussion has opened my eyes, I have been wearing rose tinted glasses for a while.

Not really. DAK in particular seems to have a revolving door for its upper management. There again, it's easier to sit tight and not rock the boat knowing you'll be moving elsewhere in a year or so. You'd want to move up not sideways or down depending on what you do. Or don't do. The Everest debacle lies higher.

Thanks! So we should blame Josh for the yeti? Any-hoo it seems like this refurb in April is gone as @jprieur said they were able to place fp+ on the requested dates

Doesn't corporate then give them less money to spend the following year as they didn't use up their budget? Also do the other parks have different VP's? I never knew there was a VP assigned to MK till yesterday.
