Yesterday, Disney announced the Disney Genie suite of offerings to what can only be described as backlash from their fans. Disney certainly took a step into what they believe to be the future of their theme parks with the Disney Genie announcement, but Disney fans are notoriously resistant to change.
To explain the service, Disney put out three videos on their Disney Parks YouTube channel. Two shorter videos, and then a more than 14 minute full overview of the service that also included a 7 minute discussion with some “planDisney” panelists. Two shorter videos hit some of the highlights that the service will offer.
A little more than 24 hours later, those three videos are the most disliked videos on the Disney Parks YouTube channel according to data collected by BlogMickey.com. Each video barley registered a 30% positivity rating when considering the ratio of “likes” to “dislikes”. As a matter of fact, the roughly 30% positive reaction is more than 10% lower than the next closest video, which registered a 46% positivity rating.
Generally, Disney YouTube videos garner quite a bit of positive reactions. In the 2,400+ videos that Disney Parks have uploaded, only four videos have more dislikes than likes.
Here’s a look at the statistics for each video as of publish time. The “Digital Overview” video (first screenshot below), is currently the most disliked video on the Disney Parks YouTube channel, registering only a 28% positive reaction. The “Full Overview” is the next lowest with a 30% positivity rating. The “Coming This Fall” video rounds out the top 3 disliked videos with a 33% positivity rating.
Here are the videos for your viewing pleasure.
