WDW Retail Must Be Hurting

14 Dec

I am having a fabulous time here at MouseFest! As I type this into my Crackberry, I am standing in a 25 minute wait for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, as I have an inexplicable need to look for that second picture of Toad giving Owl the deed to the property.

But one thing is really gnawing at me. WDW is running a sale at all its retail locations: 40% off all t-shirta’ and 50% off most Christmas stuff. While it is nice to get a bargain, I can’t help but see this as another sign of how troubled the economy is. Are future bookings so badly off that they’re resorting to this level of discounts?

But I shall put these grim thoughts out of my head. There is a picture of Toad and Owl to be found, and I am wearing the hot pink Mickey ears my BFF gave me this morning at our Haunted Mansion meet. Life is, in fact, very good.

    Keep on the sunny side of the street.

    And I hope you found the picture of Toad and Owl!

    Wow, you’ve been standing in Winnie-The-Queue for a long time. Didn’t you message me from that line on Friday?

    geoff, come to think of it, that wait did seem to be longer than the posted 25 minutes.
