How does Disney deal with bad behavior in the parks?

Are there specific guidelines for how Disney employees should handle difficult patrons? I'm looking for responses to situations ranging from bratty kids all the way to hostage-taking. [more inside]

Spending time at Disneyland Vs Universal Studios

Our family of four is going to California in less than two weeks. Our mission is basically to see Disneyland and Harry Potter World/Universal Studios. We have 2 little girls, one in Kindergarten and the other a Fifth Grader. We have six days to spend between these parks. We are thinking about 4 days at Disney/California Adventure and 2 days at Universal/Harry Potter world. Does this seem like the right allocation of days in these parks? [more inside]

who HATES Pixar's `Inside Out` enough to organize against it?

I was tremendously moved by Pixar's Inside Out and went online to read reviews. While not taken as a pillar of the film community, I noticed on IMDB when you clicked on user reviews, you were greeted by a full page of 1-star reviews. This seemed... suspicious. Are there any groups that would perhaps see the film Inside Out as worthy of a targeted campaign to deter people via imdb? [more inside]

Seeking Woody in the Buzz Lightyear suit!

About four years ago, I visited one of the Disney Interactive offices in North Hollywood (the one on Lankershim) and they had one of the coolest things I had seen (and haven't seen since) - a poster? print? painting? of Woody from "Toy Story", wearing Buzz Lightyear's suit, around a campfire with the Aliens. Does this exist in the real/outside world, or was it a one-off? I want it!

High-speed think-on-your-feet logistical-planning vacation?

A friend and I take a trip once a year together. Usually it's been something like a national park, but last year we said "screw it, let's go to Disney World" - and had so much fun; not so much because "Disney" but because of the challenges of high-speed navigating a complex ecosystem of timing and logistics and transportation and reservations. What can we do next year that would scratch the same kind of itch? Anywhere in the world is fine. [more inside]

Please explain Disney World's new Fast Pass + to a former expert

We are visiting family in Orlando next week and would like to go to the Magic Kingdom and maybe Epcot. I have been to the MK at least a dozen times and used to know it like the back of my hand - I was a zen master of showing up early, grabbing fast passes on a need-to-ride basis, and basically winging it so we never felt rushed. This will be my first trip since they initiated the new FastPass+ system, and the more I read about how it works, the more discombobulated I get. [more inside]

What is like Winnie The Pooh and Fantasia 2000? (Kids tv)

I'd like to find more kid's shows or movies that are very, very, very placid and calming. The best exemplars I've found so far are Winnie The Pooh (original movie and 2011 follow up - not the ones in between) and Fantasia 2000.

Example of Japanese-speaker singing Disney song phonetically in English?

I've been digging for about a week and I can't find audio examples of a japanese-speaker singing Disney songs phonetically in English. I know it's a thing, because I think I remember being shown this sort of thing vis-a-vis The Circle of Life a few years back by someone who was bilingual, and I got the impression from the number of videos then that this was a common practice among Japanese (and maybe other Asian countries?) kids to do. Can someone find me a link? Or give me better search terms? [more inside]

Shopping for Disney shoes for August

A portmanteau for this man's poor toes:

    What exactly did Disney get when they acquired Lucasfilm?

    I'm trying to identify what assets were acquired in Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm. Since Disney is a publicly traded company, would this information be located in any type of detailed document? One area I'm particularly wondering about is movie props from the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films - does Disney own them or did Lucas keep them?
