Thank you Disney, for doing the right thing. People can live without their "delicacy."

They should be as "socially responsible" with thier employee's screenings and paychecks as they are with the menu.

Even when Disney does something positive, they get no credit.
As far as your comments, this is a free market ecomony and no one is forced to work at Disney. They are free to pursue other careers.
The pay for customer service employees (especially, first line workers) is set by what the market will bear. Where is the union in trying to improve the workers wages?

i am a vegan, i used to eat meat. eating meat is not bad, just what they put into it that causes problems. i am against the mistreatment of animals in any way. i am not an activist, just that we should not be stuffing a metal pipe into the mouth of an animal to force feed. some of the things man does to monkeys, cattle, is deplorable. you can go hunt, kill the animal, prepare it and eat it, done.

This guy Bergan can't find foie gras at home? Disney vacations are the only times and places he can treat himself? What a load of rubbish. I'm surprised he didn't go one step further and claim that he would no longer go to Disney at all because of this.

I love foie gras, but I'm not torn up over this. Disney is trying to be politically correct. So what? No matter how good it is, I've never made a specific dining decision based on the availability of foie gras.(And I doubt this guy in the article will, either.) It's just one dish/ingredient.

I have always been amazed that they can track down idiots like Bergen who have a tale of woe directly related to the article. Oh no, now he's going to have to go all the way to Orlando to get his goose liver! If Disney has 10,000 items on its various menus, this may be the top item that I care the least about, and would never miss in 100 years.

I agree. There are millions of people out of work; Disney should replace lazy employees with new employees that will do more for less money. Maybe if Disney cracks down and stops over-paying its labor, than it can increase the salaries of executives and upper management.
Did you even read what I wrote? They need to be responsible with the background checks (re - pedophiles and thieves) and start paying the good people they have more than $9.00 an hour. Perhaps CUTTING the salaries of the executives by 25% would help alleviate a lot around here. You can't pay $8.00 an hour, expect top of the line employees and expect people to afford the surrounding housing at $1,400.00 a month for a two bedroom apt.

If you want Socialism then move to Cuba. Otherwise, get some skills, become an executive, and then YOU can make the big money.

I am sure that all of these Animal-Nazi hypocrites would. These people pick up 'pet' causes, pun intended, and then spew rhetoric that only about one one-thousandth of a percent of them ever live up to.
