ANGELS GET PERMISSION TO LEAVE DISNEY'S SMALL WORLD
Published March 24, 1998
The Angels "have received a special dispensation" from the Walt Disney Co. to "dump DisneySpeak," according to Marla Jo Fisher of the ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER. Last year, in "becoming part of the Disney empire," managers were "pressured to adopt the corporate culture, including the use of catchwords and phrases," such as "cast member" for employee, "On stage" for public areas, "Backstage" for nonpublic areas and "Guests" for fans. Fisher called the "dispute over language" a "clash of two distinct entertainment cultures" (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 3/23).
