Since our our new poll is generally a popularity contest, I’ve decided to give my take on them. They suck. Yes, mainly because I’ve always been on the losing end of one, but in all fairness, they’re trouble.
Imagine how the other princesses would react if Alice in Wonderland was voted most popular. Have you ever seen a woman scorned? While Disney would like us to believe there would be hugs & kisses all around (moment to imagine please), Sleeping Beauty would be slipping Alice knock out drops, Snow White would be calling for an attack of woodland creatures, Cinderella would be hurling pumpkins and mice, Belle would hire Beast for a hit, and Tiana would pull the race card. Once the smoke cleared, we’d find a poor little girl crying next to her dead rabbit, wondering if it was the contest or that drunken grope-fest with Prince Charming.
Seriously though, what if Disney played favorites with their resorts & parks, like the popular kids at high school? You’d have some resorts receiving all the money doled out for upkeep, getting Contempo-Casual restaurants, while others were left with chipping paint on their giant speakers and dining forced to stay ”classic”. You’d also have parks that were already doing great, getting new rides & make-overs, while others were left like the red-headed stepchild, forced to make do with leftover guests that happened to wonder by. On occasion, there would be something “new”, but only because some animals got frisky a few months before. Wait, what? This is already happening? OK, from now on I promise to do my part and think of all princesses equally…during private time.
In fairness, resorts are priced differently, so it can be frustratingly understandable to see Deluxe Resorts get treated better than Value Resorts. Just like in real life, your gated community is going to be in better shape than the ghetto part of town, largely due to the cost of living in each area. Your corner pimp is replaced by a gate guard(though I’m sure he’s just as perverted), and housewives turn tricks by appointment instead of walking the streets. As far as maintenance, all resorts still should be treated equally, as I’m sure not even Disney would want an All-Star Resort launching a new CSI series.
