Top Ten Reasons Disney Should Worry You

The Top Ten
1 They're Buying Everything

If they buy the LVCVA (Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority), they'll put more Disney characters on the Strip. I saw Elsa and Olaf there on a recent Vegas trip. They could take over all the casinos and transform their attractions, such as turning the Bellagio fountains into World of Color!

They already own the rights to Marvel, ABC, The Muppets, ESPN, Star Wars, and even certain YouTube channels. Rumor has it they might be buying Hasbro or Nintendo next! DC Comics is also on their list.

I hope they won't buy any video game developers. That would be awful. Let non-Disney entities stay non-Disney.

2 They're Hiding the Incidents that Occurred on the Parks

The happiest place on Earth isn't so happy. Disney is trying to sweep deaths at their parks under the rug. It's been reported that over a dozen people have died at the Disney parks. Not to mention, several other people have been seriously injured as well.

There was even an incident where an employee was killed during the America Sings attraction, and it was completely swept under the rug.

3 Disney's Next Target Might Be the Video Game Industry

With the recent purchase of Maker Studios, Disney might be aiming for a younger or older audience. That means they might even take it a step further and buy video game companies like Nintendo, Activision, Square Enix, and Ubisoft.

Imagine Mario in Kingdom Hearts? Or Ezio and Cloud in Disney Infinity? Nope, I don't.

If they buy Ubisoft, Nintendo, Microsoft, Turn 10, Gameloft, BeamNG, Activision, 704 Games, Square Enix, or any other, I'm with weapons on my belt and with my brutal mode on to destroy them and never come back from full rage.

4 They Only Care About Money

Disney will keep urging you to buy new Cars toys or Princess dolls. The new Star Wars movie hasn't even come out yet, and they're already making toys. And if the movie turns out to be awful? Oh well, they can still sell you toys, clothes, and products. Also, why else would Disney World and Disneyland be so expensive?

They also charge too much for items at the parks. At a regular Starbucks, a frappuccino costs only about $3-4, but my sister paid $5 for one at Disneyland. Also, I paid $14 for a small Perry the Platypus plush at California Adventure. I could have gone to the mall and paid for the exact same thing for nearly 50-60% cheaper!

5 They're Shoving Marvel and Star Wars Down Our Throats

The title says it all. Tune in to Disney and tell me how during every commercial break they show either new Marvel shows or Star Wars episodes. Disney, we get it! You own Marvel and Star Wars! Stop promoting their products to death!

I can't even walk into Toys R Us or Kmart without seeing a whole section dedicated to Marvel Heroes or the new Star Wars movie!

There seems to be a new series released every week, and I'm waiting for more non-Star Wars and non-Marvel animated stuff.

6 Only Pixar and Marvel are Helping Disney with the Movie Industry

The only good "Disney" movies being made right now are by Pixar and Marvel. The only good movies Disney made recently were Frozen and Big Hero 6. If Marvel wasn't owned by Disney, who knows where they'd be now?

7 They Fail to Admit They Copied from Others

The Lion King, Cinderella, Snow White, and The Jungle Book were all books or folk tales that came first before the movie. Yet, Disney would always claim their movies were "original."

8 They Portray Certain Animals in a Negative Light
9 Their Ads are Everywhere

You can't even go to a mall without seeing a Disney store or billboards advertising Disney World/Land where they don't even have the park!

I constantly see ads on TV for Disney World/Land, and I live in Philadelphia! I've been to both parks but probably won't be going back for at least a while. So stop trying to force me or my family to go back again! We'll go back if we have the chance to do so.

10 They Might Buy Every Super Hero

With the success of Marvel movies and products, it wouldn't be a surprise if Disney tried to buy DC Comics, especially if their movies fail. You know what that means? We could see Superman team up with Iron Man or Batman fight Captain America.

While that may sound good, in reality, it wouldn't fit. Disney would lighten up DC, meaning the return of a prankster Joker (not the psychotic one we love), a more conservatively dressed Wonder Woman and Catwoman, a Tony Stark version of Lex Luthor, and even a "not so dark" Adam West Batman. How does that sound?

The Newcomers

? They Might Buy DC Comics
The Contenders
11 They Enforce False Stereotypes of Animals
12 Their TV Shows are Awful

Minus Gravity Falls, Disney is going downhill in the TV department. Most of their "reality" shows only last for one or two seasons before being canceled. I can only imagine how many views their shows have. Ten people every week? Not to mention, their shows are either highly predictable or reused over and over again.

Gravity Falls is the only good show of theirs.

13 They Might Take Over Retail Stores

We already have too much Disney merchandise on eBay and Amazon, as well as in stores like Target and Walmart.

14 They Made The Lion King
15 Their Next Target May Be the Casino Industry

If they buy the casino industry, then Disneyland will be the main competitor with the Vegas Strip. Both are only about 270 miles apart, so Disney may try to lure more people to visit Disneyland than Vegas.

If they buy the amusement park industry, then Knott's and Magic Mountain may have to downgrade all their rides to attract more families than teens and young adults. And don't get me started with the Disney characters walking around the theme parks. They already appear in Vegas.

16 They Stereotype Kids in High School and Middle School
17 They're Beginning to Form a Liberal Bias
18 They Treat Workers Poorly

Workers, especially in production facilities in other countries like Haiti, are extremely underpaid for their work. This is to such an extent that the workers cannot provide themselves with basic needs off of the pay they earn.

19 Their Next Target May Be Boardwalks

With the success of Disney's Boardwalk Resort in Florida, they might buy out all the boardwalk resorts in New Jersey and re-theme everything. They might take out all the stuff that makes the NJ boardwalk special and fun, such as the amusement piers and arcades, and turn them into something more adult-oriented, like Atlantic City.

They'll probably get rid of the good pizza shops like Manco and Manco's in Ocean City and replace them with fancy restaurants.

20 Their Next Target May Be the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade

With the success of the Olaf balloon in the 2017 parade, and having had many Disney character appearances over the years, it's no surprise that they may want to import floats from Disneyland or Disney World to NYC so they can sponsor the entire parade. Besides, Universal Orlando got balloons from the Macy's Parade to use in their holiday or Christmas parades.

21 They Might Buy Technology Companies
22 They are Still Talking About Frozen
23 They are Making a Frozen Sequel
24 They Might Take Over Broadway

Disney has already produced many successful musicals over the years. I won't be surprised if they buy all the theaters around Times Square. They already own one Broadway theater, the New Amsterdam, and could potentially cancel all the classic Broadway musicals, such as Phantom of the Opera.

25 They're Planning to Buy Activision
