Quoting 3 little monsters:" Yeah I wouldn't file a lawsuit either, I would have been happy with free passes if I ended up complaining ... [snip!] ... surprised at all if they blew the entire thing out of proportion because it's disney and figured they could get a big payout. "


That's exactly what I think. I mean... august to now?! It's 6 months later...
& Obviously it's about money & the fact that they want MORE, otherwise who wouldn't accept free disney passes?!

I think a lot of people jump to the 'racist' conclusion. The kid said he was pulling on the rabbits hand. Sounds like he was probably being pushy. And the kid said he felt angry and a little sad? Sounds coached to me.

Quoting 3 little monsters:" WHAT?! Have they raised the prices? We went to Disney World a few years back and an adult 1 day pass was only $250. "


Lmao no. 1 day pass is 89 bucks. But some of the annual passports are around 500. The one I got was 469.

Ohh an annual, I see. And I think $250 was with my daughters ticket too. Still California disney sounds more affordable, LOL.

Quoting Mrs. Reynolds:" The fact they got that much in passes kind of makes me think this isent the first time the park has gotten a complaint about this guy :-\"


yeah i can totally see that. i was thinking they asked him and he had something shitty to say or something that verified it.



idk though, still hard to say without the other side of the story. wonder if disney will ever comment...

Honestly, if I were in their position and I felt wronged by the employees at Disney I wouldn't accept the passes either. If I was that upset about it, I wouldn't go back period, so the passes would be irrelvant. And if I felt that wronged, and they wouldn't confirm if the person who wronged me was still working or not, I'd dang sure not go back because I wouldn't want to chance running into them again.



It could have taken six months, because they could have had a dialogue going back and forth. Etc, a few months between the passes being offered, the next letter coming, etc.



That aside, I don't think it was racism. I think it was probably a misunderstanding that snowballed. However, the fact that Disney wanted them to sign a confidential agreement bothers me.

I would also be interested to see what shakes out if they manage to pull the security video.

I don't quite buy it.
It says the kid was pullin on the tab boy's hand and stuff. Maybe he was trying to pull the character to try to make him walk through the park with him. The characters can't leave their posts if they are stationed somewhere, like at the front gate, and they can't talk, so the rabbit would have to try to use body language to say "no, I can't do that."



I'm not saying all of it is made up, but it sounds highly exaggerated.

Yes, exactly! The characters are never seated. I've been to Disney World a few times and they're always standing. The mom admitted that the rabbit gave them two pictures with the kids. That's good. I only got one picture with each character because so many people want pictures also.
It was very pushy of the mom to tell the rabbit her kid wants to sit in his lap. What was he suppose to do? Give a thumbs up and grab a chair?

I don't really know what to think. I go to Disney pretty often and I've never experienced a character that wasn't gracious. It is possible, you never know. I wouldn't sue, I would accept their apology, forgive and take the passes.
They tried to make it right & the only acceptable solution for these people was that the employee be fired.
The characters don't talk either, they gesture. Was this their first trip to Disney?

Quoting LeTs*StArT*a*RiOt!:" Yep, it was. She also expected the rabbit to allow her children to sit in his lap, which is not something they do while greeting at the park entrance. "


They were probably making him/her uncomfortable by asking for things it couldn't deliver, KWIM?

Quoting LeTs*StArT*a*RiOt!:" Exactly. I hate how everything HAS to be about race. And yanking on his hands and whatnot? I'd be kinda ... [snip!] ... be kinda annoyed if that was happening, and the parents not only allowed it, but ENCOURAGED it by telling the rabbit guy off. "


Wow, I didn't realize that.

Quoting LeTs*StArT*a*RiOt!:" She literally told the dude, "He wants to sit in your lap!" and if her attitude was anything like it was in the video, I'm sure she was pretty rude about it in real life when it happened. "

Oh, I'll have to watch the video!
