Things Disney Should Stop Doing

Disney is an awful company, and they suck to the point of getting hate.

The Top Ten

1 Buying Everything

There is a clear formulaic approach to how movies are done while under the guidance of Disney's hand. Risks are rarely taken, people rarely swears, and all movies are done for families or solely kids.

Well guess what. Grown-ups want to see movies too, and kids will one day become grown-ups and see those films as well. So every movie must not be kids friendly. Additionally, people are starting to become sick with being able to predict what will happen in every new scene. That is one of the major reasons why Game of Thrones has been such a success, the unpredictable story. But Disney-movies lack innovation and proper creativity in the story department, since the company does not really dare take risks. Sure it has paid off financially, but the art of film making has declined, as Disney has been a huge part of it.

@Maddox121-For MGM I was referring to the company that owns several Vegas casinos.

These guys even bought the happy birthday song

"I can't name one thing that Disney hasn't bought"

I can.

-Six Flags
-MGM Resorts International
-Caesars Entertainment

and the list goes on...

But they MIGHT buy them, who knows. (I seriously hope they don't.)

2 Being Greedy

Especially charging so much at their parks. At Disneyland:

$14 for a small plush toy
$100 for a 1 day park hopper ticket
$5 for Starbucks


They’re greedy alright, they want to buy everything and replace good T.V. shows and theme park attractions with garbage, and act like they’re gods.

That’s just silly and stupid, Disney focus’s too much on money and they’re extremely desparate for it, it’s just stupid. - Gregory

3 Remaking Classic Movies Into Live Action

Honestly, I think they're just out of ideas because they're too busy buying companies and when they do make live action movies, they just put famous actors just to get more recognized. And when they do the live action movies, they add in stuff that ruins the entire movie or remove stuff that makes the movie successful.

@Gregory-I actually like the Aladdin remake.

Worse, pander to SJWs with those remakes. Looking at you, Emma Watson Feminist Power Trip Disguised As Beauty and the Beast Remake and Black Ariel.

I think I've read somewhere that they only did this because Walt Disney wanted it to happen. - Misfire

4 Being Narcissistic

Disney, you are NOT Jesus Christ. Stop acting like you are the lord of the universe.

Even their attempts at self-deprecation (*cough*RalphBreakstheInternet*cough*) come off as narcissistic

They act like they care about themselves because they’re very selfish.
They think they’re better than anyone else when they’re not. - Gregory

5 Stereotyping Teenagers

Worse, projecting those teen stereotypes onto younger kids

Not all teenagers act like basic bitches who text 24/7. - shiftaltkey

On Many Disney Channel sitcoms these days, there are stereotypes in it.

The average girl, the dumb blonde, the twins, the boyfriend.
And they always get into some love triangle or something.

They even stereotype people of different languages and make fun of them.

Our world is no good these days. - Gregory

6 Being Lazy

They’re so lazy that they can’t be creative anymore, so they just recycle and rip off old elements, like good TV shows.

They used to make good shows and rides, but they’re garbage now and Disney can’t make anything good anymore, - Gregory

7 Owning Non-Original Stuff

They own Star Wars, Avatar, and Marvel.
What George Lucas did with Star Wars to Disney was the worst decision he’s ever made.

Ever since then, Star Wars has been going downhill, the only exceptions were Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One, but everything else is just downhill garbage.
The Force Awakens was one of the worst Star Wars Movies ever made for being unoriginal, and the next episode will only be worse.

While some people thought Star Wars would be better without George Lucas, their consequences was that Star Wars would be dead without him.
Disney owns non-original stuff now, and they’re even making movie lands at their parks, including Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, at Disneyland and Disney World.

They’re Screwed. - Gregory

8 Making Movies About Letting Go of Friends

Elsa's and/or Olaf's gonna stay in the enchanted forest or whatever while Anna goes back to Arendale in Frozen 2, I just know it.

They actually already did it a long time ago, with "The Fox and the Hound". We didn't need "Ralph Breaks the Internet" or "Toy Story 4" (or- granted it's DreamWorks- "How to Train Your Dragon 3" for that matter).

Disney, you leave Hiro and Baymax alone! Wait, let me rephrase that: don't you dare make a Big Hero 6 sequel where Hiro and Baymax are forced to separate- this time for good (and without even a backup disk or whatever)!

Hoping bolt never gets a sequel for this very reason (RBTI SUCKS)

9 Trying So Hard to Be Hip, Relevant, Trendy, Etc

You forgot "woke". They try too hard there, too.

Looking at you, Zootopia and especially Ralph Breaks the Internet (the latter also Disney "trying to 'atone' for their pre2010 princess movies")

10 Pandering to SJWS

Add live-action "The Little Mermaid" to the list. There's no need for Ariel and her father and sisters to be black other than Disney's fake woke act.

Zootopia, Ralph Breaks the Internet, the Star Wars sequels, live action Beauty and the Beast...

Zootopia - The entire movie
Ralph Breaks - "saved by a man" "What's up with that" - Girl who gets saved by Ralph (a man)
Star Wars - ask any SW fan
B&TB - Gay-ston - Maddox121

Darling (Lady's owner) and Ariel aren't supposed to black. Can't wait for the live action Brave with a black Merida who's also now 100% lesbian. </sarcasm>

The Contenders

11 Trying So Hard to "Atone" for the Pre-2010 Princesses

That includes continuing to merchandise the Princesses as they appeared in "Ralph Breaks the Internet" (or as they call them, the "comfy squad")

That's all that stupid Oh My Disney scene in Ralph Breaks the Internet with those vapid TWA teas I'm supposed to believe are the Disney Princesses is.

12 Closing Down Good Attractions

They closed downtown Disney and replaced it with a hotel they also closed down tower of terror for a Cardenas of the galaxy ride and same thing with the universe of energy and the closed down paradise pier and replaced it with Picard pier. Disney pleas stop closing down good rides and close bad ones down instead like riches great escape and they should bring back the good atractions.

I miss the original Journey Into Imagination. :(

When they stopped liv and maddie and all those great shows I was so pissed off, I wanted to flip over a table. Do you know how great those shows are? They are lazy and a disgrace to Disney channel. - LittleAria

Disney is doing very awful with their park attractions lately.

They close them down either to retheme them into garbage, or demolish them and replace them with garbage.

They’ve done it more to Disney World than to Disneyland.

They’ve closed down Sum of All Thrills.
They’ve closed down Sounds Dangerous.
They’ve closed down Journey to Imagination for Journey to Imagination with Figment.
They’ve closed down The ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter for Stitch’s Great Escape.
They’ve closed down Time Keeper for Monsters Inc Laugh Floor.
They’ve closed down Snow White’s Scary Adventures for a princess fairytale meet and greet.
They’ve closed down Pleasure Island for the Landing at Disney Springs(basically a set of alcohol bars).
They’ve closed down Maelstrom for Frozen Ever After.
Tney’ve Closed down the Earfell Tower at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
They’ve closed down Mickey’s Toontown Fair for the new Fantasyland ...more - Gregory

13 Charging So Much at Their Parks

Vegas is cheaper!

14 Being Racist

It's gone from the overt racism of the 1940s and 1950s to the subtle racism of Jessie. - shiftaltkey

Disney’s just making shows that disgrace racism, with racist characters.

They make fun of certain races, and Disney just goes overboard on them.

What kind of company who made such awesome delightful and magical stuff would do such a thing to people of certain races? - Gregory

15 Portraying Certain Animals as Evil
16 Making Horrible Video Games

Nintendo is better and more fun!

17 Making All the Villains Get Defeated in Movies

I want to see a Hercules spin off movie where Hades rules Olympus!

18 Making Sequels

The direct to home media sequels in the late 90s through the Aughties were bad enough, but then they started releasing subpar sequels (*cough&Ralph Breaks the Internet*cough*) THEATRICALLY.

19 Taking Cues from Buzzfeed and Tumblr
20 Keeping Disney World Inferior to Disneyland

If anything Disneyland is inferior to Disney World

Wait. How is Disney World inferior to Disneyland? - MegaSoulhero

I visited both and in my opinion Disney World is better. Here’s why:

-Closer: I live in Philadelphia. I flew 2 hrs to Orlando compared to 5 hrs to Anaheim.
-Weather: it rains a lot in Florida and none in CA. Both places are hot but due to the rain Florida is less humid. I got a bad sunburn at Disneyland while I hardly got burned at Disney World.
-More stuff to do: there’s horseback riding and water parks. Disneyland doesn’t have any of those. There are waterparks in SoCal (like Hurricane Harbor and Knotts Soak City) but they’re far and you need your own transportation to get there). Also WDW has 4 main theme parks while Disneyland has 2 (yes, I have visited all 6 of them)
-Disney World has a Mission Space ride while Disneyland doesn’t.
-It is the main park featured on the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade T.V. Special. (They do show Disneyland but it doesn’t get as much attention as the Magic Kingdom did)
-There is a stationary kiddie coin operated ...more

Disneyland is original and has all the neat stuff and not only that.
Their rides are better than many at Disney World.

They have a better Pirates of the Caribbean since it’s twice as long, has 2 big drops, and has a better atmosphere and a more befitting storyline, yet it’s original and Walt Disney’s last work before he died.
They have a better Small World since it’s not as loud, making it less likely to get stuck in your head.
They have a better Buzz Lightyear Ride, since the guns move and shoot better.
They have a better Autopia, since it’s more themed, Tomorrowland Speedway at DW is garbage.
They have a better Haunted Mansion since it’s original, has changing portraits, and has the holiday overlay every Halloween and Christmas, making it spookier and more festive and atmospheric than usual.
They have a better Big Thunder Mountain Railroad because of the dynamite effect at the 3rd life hill and the cave during the last drops.
They have a ...more - Gregory

21 Ripping Off Older Works
22 Making Princess Movies

Can we have just ONE animated movie not mentioning princesses at ALL?! - RoseWeasley

These days they only make them so the SJWs will shut up about the lack of "[insert ethnicity] princess"

There's too many of them! They're so girly!

23 Making Musicals

I'd like to watch a film that doesn't go into musical numbers!

@Misfire-Yeah, but Broadway's musicals are better.

Musicals are fine. - Misfire

24 Making Fun of Itself
25 Relying on the Disney Princesses

Why the [heck] else were they in "Ralph Breaks the Internet"?

26 Constantly Mentioning Frozen

I agree with you! I hate Frozen so much!


27 Toilet Humor

Nina needs to go

28 Creating Plot Holes
29 Not Taking Risks

Slaughter Race- everything about it- wasn't "taking a risk"? Or at least a feeble attempt at "taking a risk".

I remember when Disney was fine making their movies a bit dark, butnow they don't take any risks leaving it to the bare bone. - XxembermasterxX

30 Having "Surprise" Villains

Actually, given their way of trying to avoid this in "Ralph Breaks the Internet", I kinda wish they'd go back to doing it.

31 Sexualizing Children
32 Making Bad Movies
33 Stereotyping Animals
34 Creating and Rereleasing the Lion King
35 Making Lion King Spinoffs

*cough*The Lion Guard*cough*

36 Adding Good TV Shows Then Closing Them Down.
37 Not Listening to Fans
38 Character Appearances Outside of Disneyland/World

They appear at the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Parade, Las Vegas, and even Times Square. They obviously want to advertise for the Disney Parks and compete with other famous tourist attractions.

39 Keeping Hercules Inferior to All the Other Disney Animated Features

Hercules is an AWESOME movie! In fact, it’s my favorite Disney movie and T.V. show! Why do they constantly show older characters like Simba and Mulan but never Herc Meg, or the gods? That movie is so underrated! It deserves more acknowledgement and recognition!

40 Cancelling Good Shows

Like Hercules and House of Mouse!

41 Constantly Advertising Their Parks on ABC

You mean how almost every show on that network has an episode or two wherein the characters visit a Disney park? The CONNERS (back when their show was called "Roseanne") went there for chrissakes!

They show ads for Disneyland/ World during the Philadelphia Dunkin Donuts Thanksgiving Parade and their Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade T.V. special.

I get it, you want me to visit Disneyland and Disney World, but here are some things to keep in mind:

-I’m from Philadelphia. I live too far from you guys.
-I can’t afford to visit you guys every time you advertise on T.V..
-I’ve been to both parks in CA and FL. That doesn’t mean we won’t return one day. Don’t rush us and give us time to plan. We’ll return when the time is right for us. Now is just not the right time.

42 Constant Commercialism

I see Disney products advertised at least once a day...

43 Making Animated and Super Hero Movies

This is why disney is terrible.

44 Making Pixar sequels
45 Stop Making Disney Character's Parents Die in Movies or Missing One
46 Making Disney World Expensive

And Disneyland, too

47 Casting "Flavor of the Month" Celebrities as Voice Actors

"Bolt" with Miley Cyrus, "Ralph Breaks the Internet" with Gal Gadot...
