Disney is already fading. But for the sake of memories, I hope you are correct.

Why is everybody so anti-Chipotle? I thought they were a sensation. And no, Disney is going nowhere. Its been around since the 1930s, its an American icon. They just might have to change their formula a bit.

A sensation does not mean a lasting business model. Personally, I think they're gross and a rip off. But I never liked Mexican food much anyway.
