It’s Mickey’s world, and the rest of us are just living in it.

If you weren’t aware yet, with Florida and Miami kicking the season off in Orlando, ESPN’s College Game Day is taking itself to the Magic Kingdom because of that site’s rich college football tradition it’s a Disney property.  That should make for an interesting pregame venue.

No signs and a $100 entry fee.  Man, I bet those crazy college kids will be lining up for a piece of that sweet action.

When you think about it, it’s really a twisted metaphor on the future of college football.

    Yeah I’m not sure how big of a college crowd it will draw, but Magic Kingdom is usually swamped. We have season tickets and go a couple times a year to Disney World and that park is always packed to the gills.

    I went to Disneyland in Anaheim in 1966 wearing a “Pomona Drags” jacket and they made me turn it inside out because it violated their sign policy.

    Wow, that really is sad. Are they really forgetting the students, alumni, and fans? Having a tv show in front of thousands of people that are there for a completely different reason? Good plan.

    We got to the Rose Bowl at 4:30am to get our primo parking space (so we could go to the parade). There was a car load of guys who pulled in behind us and they we fired up. I talked to them and asked how come they were there so early. They had their signs all ready and said “we’re going to Game Day”. It wasn’t until late that night watching the end of the Sugar Bowl (after taking 2 hours to get out of that “promo parking lot” that I realized there was no Game Day atg the3 Rose Bowl, it was at the Sugar Bowl;!!

    Reminds me of the old joke about the reason Mickey Mouse was divorcing Minnie……

    Fucking Goofy!

    “Gameday” without signs is kind of like Vegas without gambling or titty bars. (Actually, now that I think about it, Disneyland is kind of like Vegas without gambling or titty bars.)

    That’s gonna be one sedate-ass crowd behind Rece, Kirk, and Lee. Can’t imagine that’s gonna make for good TV, but as long as Disney gets to hype its theme park, I guess it doesn’t matter.

    Well, I’m glad I no longer feel the need to watch Gameday. But this is exceptionally lame. Put this at the stadium and you’d have a great crowd (and probably a few fights). But Disney gets to promote Disney without actually paying themselves for the commercials. I’m sure the board is all over this idea.

    We are proud to announce that ESPN Gameday access for the Notre Dame game will be Silver Circle and Magill Society-only. Pre-approved signs and parking passes may be purchased at the Stegeman Coliseum ticket office during normal hours beginning on Monday, September 2nd.

      Signs aren’t included in membership??? And you’re going to make all those rich folk stand in line in this heat??? One thing no one could ever doubt is that our organization is run by a True Scotsman!


      • The Georgia Way

        Rest assured, we put a lot of work into our Gameday sign approval process and consider them a valuable add-on. So far, the following signs have been approved:

        “Hi Mom Send Money To The G”
        “Georgia – Have It Our Way”
        “A Georgia Crown for Every Achievement”
        “The Magill Society – Because You’re Worth It” and
        “Be Like Dan – Just Send It”

        Make your selections ahead of time and avoid the heat.

    If I was at Disney with my grands to go to the park this would make me angry. We spent a week there this summer and it is crowded enough without adding this. They have an area not inside their parks they could do this at and include signs. People will have to go through a major hassle to attend and they will be in the way of those who don’t care about football and paid to experience Disney. What a horrible idea.

      Absolutely, I commented earlier, but you bring up one of the many reasons I just laugh at how dumb the show is. This would be a nightmare for the normal people there trying to maximize their time with their loved ones. I truly cherish the Disney parks and I believe the organization does a lot of things really really well. But this? Mind blowing how stupid this is and how little the every day customers matter to the big business.

    Seems like they would just create a disney build a sign station for everyone and pump that disney+ streaming service and star wars/avengers.

    Build your own Florida HULK SMASH Miami signs. seems like a no brainer. Just dont bring your own sign.

    Great way to keep the Miami and gator trash out.

    Senator – I actually just looked and it is $125 plus tax for a one day ticket on the 24th. As a Disney vet, you can get a lot of ride in from 9am to noon. Haha.

    It’ll be interesting to see how Game Day looks. I don’t know that Cinderella Castle can complete with Myers on a game day.

    Corso can just do his silly bullshit from the Hall of Presidents. He’s been an automaton ever since he died a few years back anyway.

    I worked for Disney Imagineering for a short time in Buena Vista, CA in the 1990s. They treated their employees so well it was known as, Mouseschwitz.
