All Things Disney...








The "All Things D" is an amazing place for dialing into what's relevant in geek techno...

They've had some extremely interesting, in depth discussions with people connected to the information age that is here, and the one just ahead.  If you want to see where things are going, for good or bad, then their talks are a must.  I've really enjoyed Walt Mossberg's interviews of Steve Jobs, and his talk with Bob Iger was subtly revealing as well.

Well, this year the Mouse came again in the form of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Tom Staggs.  One of a few people that are in line for the big job, Staggs is approachable, intelligent and focused in his back and forth with the hosts.  Take a look at the interview and see what he and the company have planned for the next few years in the parks and elsewhere.

If nothing else, watch Tom for a preview of who might be running the place in a couple of years...

It's official, even the head of Disney Parks doesn't know what MyMagic+ is supposed to be.

MagicBand sounds quite brilliant and more than a little potentially spooky if anyone running the program turns to the Dark Side...

He mostly talked about Magic Band, not about the company's future.

I wonder how much they spent on this? I heard rumors it was in the billions.
Maybe therein lies one of WDW's problems.

It doesn't seem to reduce stress as much as redistribute it over a much longer period of time (planning the vacation).

Anne Sweeney also did an interview with the Executive Producer of Pretty Little Liars. Some interesting comments on integrating Twitter to their TV shows to encourage live watching.
