WDW Fan Boys Podcast [Part 2]

Check out WDW Fanboys Podcast Episode #53 "Declining by Degrees with Lilly"

Hi Everyone!

You all may have recently listened to The WDW Fanboys podcast starring none other than Mitch. Well recently I got the chance to be a guest on an episode of the WDW Fanboys podcast. Check it out!

On this podcast, listen to a discussion between Tim, Brett and I talking about one of my favorite topics, park maintenance, why it's declining and why we think Disney should listen to what we have to say. It includes many of the back stage experiences I had while working at the parks and all the things I learned from the maintenance cast members there. Check out WDW Fan Boys Podcast Episode #053 12/12/10 - Declining by Degrees with Lilly.

And no, I'm not 22 even though I sound like it! Haha.

Great podcasts! I agree with your frustrations. I too have love the parks for decades and for that reason I find myself holding them to a higher standard. Now if we were to say the parks should be maintained better and they happened to have NEVER been well maintained in the past, you might be justified in calling us picky whiners. BUT the parks WERE so well maintained at one time so why cant' they STILL be that way?

For those who claim "there is just too much to take care of now. It was possible back when there were less things on property, but now there is too much to handle" I say "well don't expand so much that you can't take care of what you expand!"

Thanks again for a great set of podcasts.

Thanks Lilly!

It was great having you on as a guest. We've were getting a few comments on how we don't pull any punches when talking about the "Decline in Disney", and it was nice having someone from the "inside" back up some of our concerns. Disney will always be our favorite, which is why we can't sit idly by and let it fall apart.

Bottom line: Disney is not too big to keep up with itself, but it's greed of making a profit sometimes is. I have to believe if profits were cut back (not eliminated), they could easily keep all parks and resorts as they were decades ago.

$$$ should never be the excuse for poor maintenance. And don't create an "impossible to maintain" ride if it is only to become truly "impossible to maintain". Well said, guys.
