will you have to wait between 9 and 1 in order to ride Space mountain????
They already do that. It's called "Fast Pass". If some of the more popular rides are backed up with long lines there's this Fast Pass system that issues you a card with a reservation time. This card will put you to the head of the line at during the time period listed on the card.
Universal Studios had it first with their Fast Track passes.

BTW the cast member that was killed yesterday was dressed in a Pluto costume. He slipped and fell in front of a large parade float. He was crushed. The accident happened back stage, not in front of the crowd.

Hi all!
Disney has been flat, I atribute that to poor management. Not to mention the healthy salary of one Michael Eisner. I think merger would be the best thing for the shareholder. Even the Board id trying to get Eisner packing. It is going to get interesting. I would like to see more bidders. Eisner could protect the company if he were to start selling off the profitable portins of the bus..ie ESPN etc.. I would love to see a bidding war.

Eisner is just another example of corporate greed... the guy a few years ago exercises a 600million dollar stock option... gives Michael Ovitz a 200 million dollar golden parachute... has to give Jeffery Katzenberg millions in a court settlement... but for the people that work for Disney it's the poorest paying studio here in Los Angeles... Disney's nick name here is "Mouseshwitz".. because they work their employees like concentration camp workers... and if you happen to contract work with Imagineering ( their special effects division) you can almost count on not getting paid the last ten percent of your job.. plus have to wait months to get paid... It is like they purposely try to put you out of business.
