Oh yes, George admired Disney for sure and was at Disneyland either on opening or close to opening as a kid as evidenced in the recent Jones bio.
The foundation was laid with Star Tours, Captain EO and the SW licencing at the parks. Everyone involved should have realized this was not the same kind of deal. It killed me enough that Disney sold SW like crazy in the parks back then but now its just soulless.
VADER!? WHERE THE HELL IS MY MOCHA LATTE? -Palpy on a very bad day.
