When I was in Disney a few weeks back, I saw this and almost fell over. Sad part is, they used one of our jokes: What's the mountain's brother's name? Cliff.
Now the bastards own it forever. There goes the toy line and the Macy's parade balloon I envisioned.
Disney lawyers enstupidize ride with dumb legal disclaimer

Louis sez, "The Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor in Walt Disney World lets you text in jokes to be used in the ride, a comedy club where CGI characters voiced and choreographed by castmembers backstage do standup and interact with the audience. Disney's lawyers shoehorned this lengthy, decidedly Un-Magic disclaimer into all the signage in the ride, letting you know that Mike Wyzowski, Monsters Inc and, now, your jokes are owned by Disney. Now go have fun, kids!" Link (Thanks, Louis!)
