Share via emailSubmit to StumbleUponShare on TumblrSubmit to reddit

Walt Disney World has made SmarterTravel.com list of the top 10 most disappointing destinations list. (Of course the staff of LaughingPlace.com respectfully disagrees)  Here is what they had to say about the Resort:

Paying $99 per day to be trapped in a park surrounded by other peoples’ children and fully grown adults who like Disney? No thanks. Even a bottle of water will run you $2.50 once you’re within reach of the Mouse’s greedy grasp. And if you’re thinking about purchasing a “specialty” cocktail to numb the pain of being at Disney World, you’ll have to shell out $8.50 per drink.

The other “honorees” were:


Niagara Falls, New York

Temple Bar, Dublin

Hollywood, California

Nassau, Bahamas

Liberty Island, New York

Frankfurt, Germany

Casablanca, Morocco

Las Vegas, Nevada

Share via emailSubmit to StumbleUponShare on TumblrSubmit to reddit


Disney Interactive and RockYou have unveiled a plan whereby RockYou will assume operation of three Playdom games. The games include Gardens of Time and Words of Wonder on Facebook and mobile, and City Girl on Facebook.

This new relationship will allow RockYou, which maintains several top titles and runs one of the industry’s largest in-game video ad networks, to continue to serve the millions of people who enjoy playing these games each month.

Moving forward, Playdom will focus on creating new game experiences for its players, while RockYou will expand its publishing portfolio with some well-established games. Most importantly, we hope this relationship will allow fans to continue to enjoy these games into the foreseeable future.

The transition will occur over several months, and we’re aiming to minimize interruptions of the games, and we do not expect major impact to gameplay during this period. It’s our hope that players experience no inconvenience throughout the transition or beyond. Players should stay tuned for news and updates so they may continue to enjoy these games now and into the future.
