Unpopular Disney Opinions: MOW Edition - MOW #179  

For today’s Hub, we present a topic that was inspired by the MOWicans on our Facebook page: Unpopular Disney Opinions. This time the four of us present our unpopular opinions and the MOWican Nation gets to comment on our opinions much like we commented on their opinions on MOW #178.

The way this Facebook post worked is that someone would post a unpopular Disney opinion and all you could do to respond was to write “agree” or “disagree” without arguing. This time we posted our opinions as we were recording the show and we got immediate feedback from the MOWicans. It was a great time and we hope you can be part of the next one.

It was fun to hear what the MOWicans thought about our unpopular opinions. If you want to be a part of the next Facebook activity, like and follow our Facebook page and become an active member of the MOWican Nation.

Unpopular Disney Opinions: MOWican Edition - MOW #178  

For today’s Hub, we present a topic that comes straight from our Facebook page: Unpopular Disney Opinions: MOWican Edition. We discuss the opinions that were submitted by the MOWican Nation.

The way this Facebook activity worked is that someone would post a unpopular Disney opinion and all you could do to respond was to write “agree” or “disagree” without arguing. The MOWican Nation did an incredible job with this. We got some incredible opinions such as Disneyland princess were much better looking and better actresses than Walt Disney World princesses, Hollywood Studios is still the number two park, World Showcase can be boring, and much, much more.

It was fun checking out what was presented. If you want to part of the next Facebook activity, like and follow our Facebook page and become an active member of the MOWican Nation.
