All is not perfect in the world of Disney. It makes me said to present to you this complaint about the Disney Dream, written by an 8 year old and published by the Huffington Post last month. I sure hope Disney listens because for this one boy, Disney utterly failed in its mission.

From Ricky Brigante of Inside The Magic: Getting into Disneyland has become a bit of a hassle lately, as a result of ticket scams going around the area. Because discounted multi-day tickets have been unofficially rented out on a daily basis (against Disneyland policy), Disney has answered by checking the ticket of each and every person who approaches the turnstiles to see if they have single or multi-day tickets, sending them in different directions. Those with multi-day tickets are being photographed to match their faces with the tickets to ensure only one person uses each for admission. Cast members standing in front of the turnstiles are rather in-your-face about asking to see tickets, not the usual Disney friendliness and not the best way to start a day.

Is Home Improvement Disney's Money Pit?
The creative team behind Home Improvement has sued ABC parent company the Walt Disney Co. seeking millions of dollars in revenue for failing to properly exploit the hit 1990s sitcom. In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Wind Dancer Production Group, writer-producers Matt Williams, Carmen Finestra, Tam O'Shanter and David McFadzean claim that Disney sold Home Improvement into syndication in New York "for no monetary consideration" and failed to consult with them about how the Tim Allen show would be exploited. The plaintiffs also claim they haven't been paid their fair share of profits from a show that has generated $1.5 billion for Disney. They claim they are entitled to 75 percent of net profits generated by the show, an unusually high percentage.
