Why would you expect WDW to antagonize an entire industry, and perhaps millions of people who enjoy that delicacy, or otherwise are employed in producing, distributing, selling it when they can remain somewhat neutral and accomplish their goal of eliminating it from their very limited offering at the park, making a subtle statement, and avoiding becoming a protagonist in a very delicate situation that they, WDW, are very wise and prudent to avoid at all costs. It's done, over with, and any grandiose, preachy statements by WDW would just spark further news splashes and a retort from the other side of the issue and on and on it would go. Be content with what you got and shut up for a change.

I have no expectations of Disney other than that they would do whatever serves their bottom line, as most businesses do. In fact, I didn't even have an expectation that Catalyst would have thought to include a question mark at the end of his(?) lengthy interrogative tirade. I mean, after 76 words, who can focus on punctuation?
I'm still baffled that the very idea of making compassionate choices can inspire such vehemence in people.
The above commenter makes the assumption that a statement from Disney might bring further conversation on these matters. I just can't see how that might be a bad thing. If we live in denial and ignore that which goes on around us, that doesn't make it go away. In fact, it makes things worse.
If I'm uncomfortable with a conversation I'm hearing, I make the mature choice and leave the room rather than putting my fingers in my ears and telling the participants to "shut up".
No one is asking anyone to "antagonize" anyone else, but rather to help CEASE antagonizing, torturing and murdering defenseless creatures by shedding light on the dark truth of the meat and dairy industries. Again, I just can't see how that might be a bad thing.
