shocking development!

i am not quite sure when this happened, as i was in the world last january and had just recorded the entire “top seven with stacy” and – other than adding in “toy story midway mania” – all was right with the world.

imagine the shock and horror when, upon checking in on this last trip at ASMovies, i immediately clicked on the TV and saw THIS:

(only before i taped it, it was a whole lot less shaky…. in any event i realized quickly that holding a camera in front of the tv was not the way to go – but i HAD to bring the news out!!!)

OK. i am not sure what they have dome to and with my stacy. i am generally not a fan of writing negative things about peoples appearances – especially women – in the blog format or elsewhere for that matter (unless you are a sasquatch and you know who you are) but c’mon!!!!! stacy! you look like your own older, sadder sister! just dowdy and dreary! they’ve put her in frowsy outfits in the interspliced “talking head” sections, and she just looks tired!     our stacy is bouncy and energetic, not tired with unfortunate hair.

gone is “yummy! yummy! yummy! (insert yummies here)”. gone is “humunga cowabunga!”  gone is “love roller coasters!  love aerosmith! hellllooooo???!!!”!! even gone is the pent-ultimate stacy-ism: “look at all the lazy people in the lazy river”. UG.

i can sort of see why the change was made, and am hopeful that it is a temporary one. there is no mention of the triple mountain whammy (space mountain, as we geeks know, is down for a rehab for several months) – but would you call Dumbo/Splash Mountain/Small World the magic kingdom’s top must sees? some of the “original” footage is there, and there is some new “stacy in the parks” but even in that, she just doesn’t have the old stacy magic. and the little bippity boppity song is gone too. finally they YOMD footage is gone, some WWYC is in their, as well as, currently, mention of the epcot flower and garden festival.

some may be heartened that the complete show runs just over, say, 15 minutes – i’ve recorded the audio for future generations and will certainly feature it on the podcast at some point.

but my trip was just a little sadder at some moments, knowing i wouldn’t be ending my days with “let’s ride!”

    I don’t think I’m going to like…at all.

  2. What a total bummer. I loved starting my day and ending my day with the Top 7 Must Sees on the resort TV. Maybe if I watch this new one on the spanish channel it will add a little excitement.

  3. Maybe this is a good thing. Maybe now I won’t be so fixated on the Top 7 and will actually get my butt out to the parks!

    She does seem much less perkier than usual. Maybe they gave her a pay cut or something.

  4. Okay, this is sad. There is not much that can motivate you like Stacy. Again, this is sad.

    I miss my “lazy people on the lazy river…”!!! 😦

    That is horrible news. I started every day with my Stacey and her Stacey-isms. We would repeat them over and over in the parks.

    Now we are going to have to do it in memory of the most addicting show Disney every produced.
