That's the corporate Disney spirit for you.
Sounds like someone is needs to get their facts straight. You need to read and understand the full story before you come to ignorant conclusions. They only place that children are not allowed at WDW is the Victoria & Alberts restaurant, a 5 Diamond fine dining restaurant that caters to adults seeking a luxurious and exclusive dining experience at Disney's flagship deluxe resort. I dont see anything wrong with that, especially when the rest of WDW is fully dedicated to children and families.

In reponse to "Walt turning over in his grave", has anyone seen www.waltopia.com ? Walt's vision of Epcot was far from what it ended up being. He envisioned a central work district with single- and multi-family housing surrounding it. Granted, I don't think he saw multi-million dollar mansions. In fact, in his vision, there were no home owners, all renters. And all adults worked, no matter what age. If Disney could follow Walt's true vision, they would probably make more money in the long run by renting to their employees, all 50,000+ of them!

Nobody's making you work there, which is why most of the half-way intelligent American employees have left and left the area too. We notice that most of the English speaking American employees still there are physically or mentally handicaped folks, the rest are the local Kissimmee dregs.
It truly is "The Happiest Place on Earth". Profits and attendance at record highs,(you can't even move around the parks or get on rides anymore because it's so over crowded all year long) ticket prices going up every 8 months, prices for everything on property going up, and quality of service, food, and employees steadily declining... Boy, somebody's making a lot of money somewhere. I wonder what Walt would say.
It's ironic that a company who sponsors religious events like "Nights of Joy" and "The Candlelight Precessional" also now openly sponsor "Gay Days" events on property too. It's all about the money baby. Guest comfort, value, and quality of services doesn't matter at Disney anymore.
Hmmm, my CM connection seems to have done very well even with her disability( she has allergies).
Apparently , you haven't attended a major sporting event, a Broadway play or major music event. The price of those events hour for hour are more expensive then a one day at Disney.
Many of those who have issues with the price at Disney are the same folks who drive gas guzzling SUVs.Cable TV is pretty costly as well, how about the weekly cost for the Starbucks addiction or a countyclub membership.Disney yearly memberships are less then the swimteam membership I paid for my CM.
