Before I say anymore and get slammed I want to make clear that I did enjoy going to the Disney parks and I found it to be a enjoyable experience, However I really think that Marketing is taking over the parks and the magic is getting lost.
The Magic of Disney World has been replaced with The Magic Kingdom of MARKETING. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Disney World has become one big out-door merchandising extravaganza with product placement standing proudly next to every entrance, every corner and every exit on every RIDE in the PARK!
Yes, it is sad that things change, however even Disney is hurting during these tough economic times. I for one would rather them stay open using aggressive marketing than have to close its doors. That would be a real shame.
Maybe, but I couldn't help be notice it since my daughter continually ask me to buy her this or that. Grant it I did tell her no on several occasions, but after a while and a long day at the park I did say yes. However I drew the line when my daughters wanted a balloon and I was told 8.00 please. At that point I really felt like I was being taken advantage by the magic of Disney.
