A stockholder letter to the Disney Corporation

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008
My daughter, Emily (11) wrote this letter to the Disney Company. I asked for permission to blog it. I think she touches on several very important points...

November 10, 2008

As a stockholder of the Disney Company (that means I own two shares of the Disney Company), I think we should:

       Bring back Disney magazines
       Lower prices on things
       Have Santa visit
       Put cotton candy in the candy store
       Make Fantasmic a little less violent
       Under the huge Christmas tree, put a stable with Mary, Jesus, and Joseph
       Bring back submarines and the Country Bear Jamboree

No response yet, but I look forward to seeing how they respond to this young stockholder.

Good for her! I would add one additional request:

Let Emily run the company!

She left out "re-release 'Condorman' on DVD." It's sick that it's going for $90-120 a copy.

re: A stockholder letter to the Disney Corporation

Country Bear Jamboree at Disneyland was replaced many years ago by an indoor Winnie the Pooh Adventure. It's OK but, as you can see, my children would prefer to have the country bears back. The country bears have been relocated to the splash mountain log ride. I do not know if this is the same for DisneyWorld.

The animals in Splash Mountain are from the America Sings attraction that used to be in Tomorrowland. It was put together for the bicentennial in 1976. The round rotating building is now the home to Tom Morrow and the Innoventions attraction. The Country Bear Jamboree characters are in storage as far as I know. My suggestion to the Walt Disney Company is to build them a home near the Grizzly Rapids in Disney's California Adventure. Makes sense, right?
