The newest exhibit in EPCOT’s Innoventions was subjected to attacks from various groups for presenting the subject matter in a rude and offensive manner. That exhibit is Habit Heroes, an attraction that aimed to teach kids and their parents new habits that would leave to healthier living. Unfortunately, the characters used for the ‘Bad Habits’ (aka the villains) Disney chose to focus on really did border on the offensive.
Now LaughingPlace.com is reporting that Disney will close Habit Heroes for for a retooling of its message. Disney officially says it’s closing just for some renovation work after a period of soft opening, but it sounds like this is something much more serious.
What do you think? Is Disney bowing to critical pressure or is this a change that needed to happen.
