Alice: I agree that every one- or two- or ten-share shareholder probably shouldn't get a perk like that. But at some point -- 1,000
shares? 5,000 shares? pick a number -- one would think that some benefits should kick in.

Hmm, I wonder where it would stop though. For 5,000 shares, you get what's behind curtain number 1. For 50,000 shares, you get what's behind curtain number 2. And for 50,000,000 you get this fabulous corporate shareholder junket...Yet that's and a friend will be basking in the lap of luxery at Disney's corporate getaway in Colorado. And you'll be flying in this...your own privately chartered Disney Jet!

Maybe that's how they keep the major shareholders voting their way.
