We're talking about a company that air conditions the outside air, flies 5 helicopters around all day long to monitor storms, has hundreds of boats and buses in continuous operation, etc.

If they try to take away my precious fireworks - pretending to care about the environment, but really just trying to save money - I will hunt down those responsible and beat them with paper straws.

Yes!



I'm tired of that BS corporate line as well.

Another alternative is to encourage pollution and accelerate the extinction of the human race which will be the ultimate benefit to the planet.

Oh, and it'll take care of the "problem" of Disney fireworks too.
Hah! I was going to post the same thing. Yes. All vacation should be hikes in natural parks where the air is pure and no damage can be done!!!

These National Parks Got an “F” in Air Pollution

I voted get rid of the automobile first.

They could easily reward the use of shared transportation or Disney transportation by waiving all fees (or giving guests a room discount) if they voluntarily let their car be booted or parked in a lot that is monitored to prevent early exits without charging the room.



I'm hard core. No more of this "let's get rid of fireworks because . . ." while insisting on our SUVs and car rentals until there is actually scientific data that says we need to do so.
