Pass Go, collect $200.So a "needle drop" would be using commercial material (like the Frontierland BGM with the movie themes) as opposed to say, the Pirate area at DLRP which is particular to Disney and (presumably) recorded especially for that area?
Well, she has a point! I refuse to eat at the Rainforest Cafe at either of the US Disney parks....why, when it is at the local mall?I was chatting with Sharon Kurland (yes...I know...most people thought we were enemies) and she said "Disney doesn't want to be in the theme park business anymore...they want to be in the landlord business." Why should I go to Florida to eat at the Rainforest Cafe when I can do it at the Menlo Park Mall?
I am SOOOOOOO in agreement. I can't stand that Disney brings in outside franchises to run identical businesses. Now, I enjoy ALL of the places they bring in. But I'm not going to them while I'm there. Wait, not true. I did go to Cirque and Rainforest several years ago, when I stayed across from the old MARKET VILLAGE. Cirque is cool and doesn't have that show anywhere else, and at the time I thought Rainforest WAS a Disney restaurant. So, I am a semi-hypocrite. But I haven't forked over money to those establishments in a LONG time. And I don't go all the way to florida to do stuff I can do around my own home.But it's Disney's The Rainforest Cafe! and Disney's House of Blues and Disney's AMC theater and Disney's Planet Hollywood and Disney's Wolfgang Puck's and Disney's Cirque de Soleil and Disney's Virgin Megastore and Disney's McDonalds...so it's worth traveling to Florida.
