Really, c'mon, Johnny Depp would be way too expensive. It would have to someone cheaper. Probably someone like Chris Rock or Kathy Griffin... :wink: :mrgreen:
Oh my goodness, Kathy Griffin narrating almost any ride would be enough for me to at least severely curtail my visits :shock: :roll:

Extreme greed in an already bad economy. I do appreciate the free Disney Dining Plan. That helps out a lot.

I agree that a lot of change has happened at the parks and will continue to happen. Walt Disney himself even stated that it will always be changing. The change is good as long as it meets the high standards and dream that Walt had for the parks. The day that Walt's dream is forgotten and ignored is the day I may stop going. For me DL is more than a place for rides and shows, it is an experience and state of mind when you pass through the gates.

As long as they don't raise admission prices by 40% or more., or if they somehow got rid of any of the "classic" rides like Pirates, Haunted Mansion, etc..

I suspect they'll have to raise admission higher than that to cover Avatarville over at DAK! :shock:

Considering the overcrowding problems they have now at DLR, they can raise it without problem.

I guess I'd have to finally stop going if the admission prices truly went through the roof or if as others have mentioned, the attractions started to be based on someone like Miley Cyrus or one of the other Disney Channel "stars"; the High School Musical Parade was bad enough and sent me zooming in the opposite direction, so pleez, leave those shows as parades, just never remove Peter Pan for Wizards of Waverly Place or something.

I'd stop going once Disney started throwing candidates into the political spectrum. I hate politics enough already.....
