IMO, after two big-budget flicks based on Disneyland rides ("Pirates of the Carribean" and "The Haunted Mansion"), Disney must be stopped before they greenlight:

I'm not a big fan of Disney, but I don't see the big deal here. Sure, it's a looser privacy policy, but they do ask you to opt-in to it, right? And if you decline, they *say* they'll apply the old policy to your data. This doesn't seem as egregious as what other companies (like Yahoo) have done in the past.
