    I'm guessing it's the angle and the lens but the car park looks kind of small here.

    It's because of how high up Bio is... everything looks smaller. That's one big ass parking lot and about to get bigger.

    Mickey somewhat blends in to the crowd when you see the statue from a distance?

    Attended the park on Sunday and I’ve never seen so much trash on the ground and in flower beds, over flowing trash bins, and dirty as hell bathrooms at any Disney park. Management needs a refurbishment.

    It's the old Mickey saying...."As Buzzy goes, so goes the Magic Kingdom"....Taps and tears from a low morale workforce. ;)

    Between the cost of labor going up with all the CM raises and the under performance of SW, they've been cutting labor as much as they can. Labor is the single largest controllable coat for any business, and they (like all businesses) are always trying to do more with less, making the product suffer and killing the goose that lays the golden egg.

    For a company that is always asking "what would Walt think or do", they often forget:

    Maybe I haven't followed close enough for all these years, but my biggest gripe with current Disney, Parks, studios, etc, they're so blatantly greedy and are only in for profit. Which I get, every business is Im not stupid, but Disney doesn't seem to give a f about their blatant price increasing, movie cost cutting, parks cost cutting, I feel have the things they announce for the parks never come to fruition, idk its just a turn off. I can't really say much other than that, its just a turn off and makes me want to visit their parks and films less and less these days. I don't think its an age thing for me either as I'll always have a little kid in me, but the magic is wearing off a bit for me.

    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    I'm reminded of that comparison somebody made years ago:

    Walt Disney wanted to deliver a quality product, and make a buck in the process.
    Michael Eisner wanted to make a buck, and deliver a quality product in the process.
    Bob Iger wants to make a buck.

    Is that unfair? You bet. Is it too simplistic? Yes. Does it, fundamentally, sort of illuminate some truths that have some merit about how priorities have morphed over the years? I think so.

    Just saw this- that's how they paint it. They paint everything bright and then they paint over the whole thing again two more times for the finished product. It's a process- I'd bet it's fixed by now as it takes a few days to complete.

    Edit: Trying to find a recent pic on Twitter and not having much luck. Did see the new DHS sign though, which looks much better:

    I hope the Partners Statue isn’t a new Mandela Effect.

    Well, at least they are keeping in theme for the whole park.
