Showing Scorn (and Disrespect) at Disney

There are some folks who prefer Universal Orlando (or whatever Central Florida park may be) over Walt Disney World, but a few of them actually abhor Walt Disney World. For example 1, there's a guy named Bobby Service, who tells those who are doing Disney  to "get a life." He criticizes the food (which to him looks "worse than poo-poo"), the advertising, the attractions (including Rock 'n' Roller Coaster), and whatever. He made a video about what he hates about the resort in the style of Disney's Sing Along Songs! (Guests must be 18 or older and be a YouTube member to view this.) Here's a note to Mr. Service: keep in mind that even teens and adults get the Disney knack, too!

Another Disney vacation-wrecker is Debbie Downer, who is with her family during the Magical Gatherings campaign. In their Saturday Night Live skit, they are having what a typical family vacationing at and around Disney has: a good old-fashioned Disney Character breakfast. Debbie Downer is displeased with the idea - she talks about mad cow disease, the train explosion in North Korea, and other taboo subjects. She even turns off Pluto about his work at Walt Disney World too, because she thinks that his job as meetable character is to fear terrorist attacks and that he's going to suffer heatstroke in his costume. Of course, my male cousin (let's say he's one of the people who has the Universal-over-Disney attitude) never acted like that when I took him to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, and even Eeyore would think her pessimism is too over the top. I wouldn't encounter her at Disney, even on queue for a ride - she ruins the magic for me.

Oh, and today is "Spread the Word to End the Word," and if I hear that word "retard" one more time...
