Disney is No Longer Family Safe or Oriented to the Good

A Disturbing Trend at Disney | Reasonable Faith Podcast

"Dr. Craig is troubled by developments at Disney corporation." from video introduction

Long gone is the Disney of my youth when Walt Disney was alive. Our world and the American culture was different, there actually was virtue and family values.

Today Disney is a giant corporation centered on profits. Values and virtue are now passe and the focus is pandering to the social constructs that will make profits down the road. - Andy

Lost Magic: The Decline of Walt Disney World

Video from Matt Graham

"With the recent departure of The Walt Disney Company's CEO Bob Iger, and more importantly the installment of their new CEO, Bob Chapek, Walt Disney World has seen a very disappointing decline since the pandemic began in 2020. What first appeared to be calculated health and safety precautions quickly turned into a very obvious money-grab." from video introduction

The Decline and Fall of Disneyland

"AT THE BASE of the flagpole that marks the beginning of Disneyland's Main Street in Anaheim, California, rests an unobtrusive plaque. It reads: "Disneyland is youth land. Here age relives fond memories of the past and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals and the dreams and the hard facts that have created America with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world. July 17, 1955." These are the words with which Walt Disney opened his remarkable experiment in entertainment almost half a century ago. Today it's more than a bit dizzying to turn around and trudge back across the ticket plaza to the new resort Michael Eisner has built in what was the old Disneyland's parking lot. Walt's Magic Kingdom now shares the block with Eisner's California Adventure, and the distance between the two is much further than the seventy yards between them would suggest. Like Disneyland, Eisner's park is divided into theme areas. Furthest from the entrance, and dominating the park's skyline, is "Paradise Pier." There's a roller coaster called "California Screamin'," a Ferris wheel, a boardwalk, and some carnival thrill rides. A raft ride, marking the middle of the "Golden State" section, gets you wet cascading down the slopes of a Sierra Nevada peak reminiscent of the grizzly bear on the California state flag. There's a mini-section with a big-screen flight simulator that wings you over bits of California scenery (the innovation here is aromatic: Over forests and orchards we get bits of appropriate orange or pine scent). "Pacific Wharf" is a food court complete with a microbrewery and patio for wine tasting. The "Hollywood Pictures Backlot" is a street of 1930s-style false fronts with theaters for stage shows and films and more places to get hot dogs. Abutting the park on the west is the new Grand Californian Hotel and a half-mile shopping mall called "Downtown Disney." The expanded Disney empire in Anaheim has been long in coming. Ever since the opening of Disneyland in the 1950s, Walt and Roy Disney resented the dozens of hotels--of various grades of cheesiness--that grew on the park's perimeter, and they resolved not to repeat their mistake of buying too little land when Disney World was planned in Orlando. Meanwhile, back in California, the Disney brothers negotiated with the city of Long Beach for an Epcot-like park on the city's waterfront (where they already owned the Queen Mary and the Spruce Goose), but nothing.." from the article: The Decline and Fall of Disneyland
