If Theme Parks Were Honest

I liked the video. I think it exemplifies some of the sentiment I have seen around Coasterbuzz, especially the articles and the Disney hates poor people sentiment. I also think the remarks about high priced food, the less than stellar pay employees receive and general disenchantment were not hilarious, but funny

As a former WDW Cast Member, it was a funny satire. I enjoyed it.

Maybe I'm too close to the subject, but the familiarity was exactly the reason I didn't like it. It didn't say anything that I haven't heard a million times and it didn't do it in a way that was particularly innovative or incisive.

Can we just go back to the days when sketch comedy was actually funny?

I'd argue that sketch has never been more vital, fun, or popular than it is today. You just have to look for it.

All the classic sketch actors / companies listed above are great, but survivor bias means that we only remember the occasional great sketch they put out and forget the multitude of crap ones they put out along with them. Same thing for the "Saturday Night Live is terrible now" chorus that's been singing since the 2nd season of the show aired.

Or was it just bad writing and acting all together?

That's good stuff. It's been more than a decade since my last visit to Crystal Palace, but I definitely remember telling my wife afterward that it was nothing more than an overpriced Golden Corral.

I don't know that the map is funny, per se, but it sure as hell is accurate.

Saw the map yesterday on FB and it's great. You can tell it's made by people who actually know Disney and love it, which is why the jokes land.
