Now they gotta pay 2 CEOs, time to cut staff and make hot dogs $11 again


JennJayBee t1_j4tpngt wrote

The hot dogs have been $12-15 since at least 2021.

That's the price BEFORE the markups begin.

Edit: You can get a plain or plant-based dog for about $10.

Ouch!! Haven't been to Disney World since 1/2020 and guess I didn't notice at Disney Land in October. Awful.

I'm going off of Casey's Corner prices at WDW. They might be different in California.


NYCinPGH t1_j4ts6oi wrote

This is why I don’t get fast food at WDW - if I’m going to get gouged, I at least want good food, and if possible, someone to bring it to me.


JennJayBee t1_j4tt27a wrote

The table service isn't always good, either. The better restaurants honestly are either at Disney Springs or the resorts.

But there are a few of the quick service locations that stood out.

The Buffalo chicken grilled cheese sandwich over at ABC Commissary was amazing, but I've learned how to make it at home for much cheaper.

Satu'li Canteen is pretty good, too.

If you want a hot dog, you leave the park and go to Portillo's. Chicago dog with the best damn onion rings and a slice of chocolate cake (or a cake shake)... It's well worth the calories.


NYCinPGH t1_j4tvivo wrote

That’s pretty much where we are. There are 1 or 2 Table Service in each park we like (and not always the popular ones), and we’ll do lunches there, but for dinners, we always go to a restaurant in a resort near the park we’ve been in all day, in the resort we’re staying, or at Disney Springs.


Powered_by_JetA t1_j4tv8c3 wrote

The hot dogs at B.B. Wolf's Sausage Co. at Disney Springs are phenomenal too and worth the price, plus they come with a bag of chips for free.


Fishfisherton t1_j4vel5c wrote

Had dinner with some family friends at the german biergarten and the table service was downright HOSTILE. Every 2-3 minutes the waiter would come over and ask "Anything I can get you? CHECK?" To try to get us out as fast as they could.


JennJayBee t1_j4vjxqw wrote

Yikes. Thankfully, I've never had an issue with bad service. It's just that the food/experience has typically been mediocre for the price, with a few rare exceptions. Cinderella's Royal Table, for example, only just brought back the princesses roaming the room. Previously, folks had been fighting over reservations and paying up to nearly $70/person just to have Cindy come out and occasionally wave. (And the food was Denny's quality.)

And that's been pretty much on brand for in park restaurants as a whole lately— underwhelming overpriced food. Places like Boathouse (Disney Springs) aren't cheap, but at least the food and overall experience is better.


dubBAU5 t1_j4wu955 wrote

Portillos is always the right choice.


JennJayBee t1_j4xh0ha wrote

I'm mostly there for the onion rings, honestly, but it's all good.

I think what we need is for investors to start lawsuits against the boards of these corporations.

A shareholder should be able to get a lot better return on investment by the company investing in new products, or the company, or acquisitions. Giving gigantic payouts to small groups of individuals cannot be a good return on value no matter what those individuals do.

Don't forget he's the CEO but all the other C-levels and board members are probably getting millions of dollars as well.

I want to follow the Jose Mourniho career path. Get a job, get a lot of praise, but after 2-3 years fall out with the boss and get fired with a multi-million payout. Then on the basis of the initial praise, get another job and do the same thing.


rtb001 t1_j4v45w1 wrote

Mourniho wasn't getting jobs just on the initial praise through. He was successful or better at each stop, winning league titles, UEFA Champions League, Europa league etc.

What you want is Doc Rivers. Luck into one championship when your GM creates one of NBA's earliest superteams for you, then ride the coattails of that one trophy for the next 15 years, blowing one playoff after another (damn near blew a 3-0 lead last year! ), sometimes throw your own players under the bus after those losses, yet never without a job, and somehow makes it onto the NBA's top 15 coaches of all time list, because the American basketball world loves to screw over Rudy T for some reason.

Wow, look at this guy, getting unused vacation paid to him. My company makes us accrue vacation time on a per hour worked basis over the course of the fiscal year and none of our time (sick, vacation, holiday) rolls over. Use it or lose it.


mejok t1_j4uyu72 wrote

Mine adds up. Well we don’t have anything like sick time. I mean you can sick but there is no limit. We have 25 Vacation days per year and unused days roll over, so like I I don’t use them I can use them the next year. After a certain period of time they get paid out. I didn’t use much vacation time during 2020 and 2021 so I had like 40 vacation days in 2022. Used all but 4 days. It was nice


TheKrytosVirus t1_j4xw5g5 wrote

I am insanely jealous. If I call out sick or to stay home with my sick kids without paid sick time available, I get 1 mark against me.

How much do I get?

The funny thing is... Those are almost all basically exaggerations of things Chapek did. (He never shut down the eggroll cart.)

The janitorial staff has definitely been cut, and he still hasn't managed to get trams back up and running. Food quality has dropped as prices continue to rise. He actually did switch out the ketchup packets from Heinz. Some merchandising/supply issues ended up with long lines stretching through parks and even a few fights, though this was at least not necessarily his fault. He cut passholder perks while raising prices and referred to them as "undesirable." And construction slowed on EPCOT projects despite having plenty of downtime to have worked on them— resulting in what guests refer to as "Wallcot."

workers not putting up with things as much, noticing how shitty the system is, almost like people are waking up a little

honestly think the main thing that needs to change is that the 60+ crowd needs to die off and let the next gen move in. values are different and i think will lead to a better workforce

I know, some "free market" fan boy will correct me soon and say that's what the market demands for execs but I would counter that C level execs are price fixing and artificially inflating their own salaries.


Hiddencamper t1_j4vzi9w wrote

Part of this issue, is laws meant to force CEO pay to be public has only resulted in the CEOs getting more negotiating power with each other. So their pay has skyrocketed.
