Much better :D--184.108.40.206 12:44, 7 May 2005 (UTC)
I think this is a great template to provide an at-a-glance summary of what the Parks and Resorts properties are at each location. I don't feel it's necessary for this template to list the Parks and Resorts executives, nor the "miscellaneous" properties such as Imagineering or the Oriental Land Company. I do, though, think it would be nice to list Downtown Disney and Ikspiari and the like. What do y'all think? - Brian Kendig 03:19, 2 October 2005 (UTC)
Well obviously I think the opposite so I am not going to get involved at the moment cos if it is just me and you we will argue, as we are at opposite ends of the spectrum.--Speedway 09:37, 2 October 2005 (UTC)
Actually, I have been thinking about this, and I think we should discuss this.
I do not feel it necessary to include areas of the resorts which are not as important as the main attractions (the parks), whereas you do not think it is necessary to include the executives and the company affiliates. That is fair enough, but as I think the main cause of wars on is stubbornous, I think we should compromise. With a lot more compromises, would be a lot more peaceful I think.
I like what you did with the rearranding of the actual template, it looks much better. The whole thing should be like that though, not just the resorts. I will agree with including the Downtown Disneys, Ikspiari and Disney Village (not Golf Disneyland though) if you leave the executives and affiliates as they are. The template is about Walt Disney Parks and Resorts as a company, not actual parks and resorts owned by Walt Disney if you know what I mean, so that is why I think we should include affliates like Imagineering, Creative Entertainment etc as especially those two companies make a big difference to what goes on in the parks, and are so important they are included in the Parks and Resorts corporate umbrella. What do you think? --Speedway 10:59, 2 October 2005 (UTC)
I know OLC isn't Disney, I did originally stated that the examples of Imagineering and CE were included under the umbrella. The OLC and EuroDisney SCA are not owned by Disney at all. I agree with you on the singular resorts, there are simply too many at WDWR. I consider the purpose of this template to link people to the various areas of the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts unit of the Walt Disney Company. This includes; the five resorts, the companies that are involved in the resorts, the executives who lead the resorts, the companies involved, and the unit itself, and the theme parks in each resort. I think I led it in more of a business-y direction with the corporate info and removing the 'extra' stuff at the resorts. --Speedway 20:02, 2 October 2005 (UTC)
Discussion hasn't gone anywhere on this recently, so I'm removing the "Miscellaneous" section for now because I still feel the five links in it are arbitrary - I don't understand why those were chosen instead of other links. If you feel there are other articles which should be linked from this template, then let's come up with something that states their purpose better than "Miscellaneous". - Brian Kendig 02:45, 7 October 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, the discussion hasn't gone anywhere because I've had more important things to do. I see compromises have gone out of the window - I stated previously Golf Disneyland should not return. Golf Disneyland is a golf course - WDWR has eight, and two crazy golf courses. I can't remember the last time someone who had just came back from DLRP and said they had a great time at the golf course. --Speedway 10:52, 9 October 2005 (UTC)
I mean really, look at it. It's huge! Do we really need to list the presidents of each resort? Couldn't that be on each of their respective pages? -james_anatidae 02:20, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
This template is now getting to the point where other Disney related things are being linked with it. It should be strictly for parks, and maybe for the cruise line, but nothing else. Suggestions? → J@red talk ubx 21:55, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
I'm all for the addition of the Downtown Disneys, as well as possibly adding DisneyQuest. --Comthought 04:32, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
I added Disney Regional Entertainment, ESPN Zone, Walt Disney Imagineering, and World of Disney because they are all part of Walt Disney Parks And Resorts. I didn't add anything unrelated to the division. Jonyyeh 19:34, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
Jonyyeh, I don't think that any of those should really be a part of the template. None of them are parks, park-like, or a resort specifically. They may be related, but here's my reasoning: ESPN Zone, a restaurant, has locations in the resorts but it is not a park itself. If ESPN Zone has an entry, then why not any other restaurant at the resorts? If World of Disney is on there, why not every other store in the resorts? If Imagineering, why not any other affiliated group? I vote to remove these because they just are not significantly under the general umbrella of the template. --Comthought 05:01, 9 April 2006 (UTC)
Well, World of Disney and ESPN Zone both have locations outside the resorts. ESPN Zone has most of its locations outside the Disney resorts. In fact, ESPN Zone is operated by Disney Regional Entertainment, which is part of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. Walt Disney Imagineering is the group that designs the Disney Parks, and they are also in the same division as the parks. Hey, the title of this template is Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, not Disney parks in general. I also suggest that you read the Jay Rasulo article. It basically lists all of the businesses that Jay oversees as chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. Jonyyeh 17:06, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
