To Team Disney Infinity:
First of all, I just want to start out by saying thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, and again, thank you for such a great game. My identity and who I am is not significant right now, but I'll just say that my name is Rodrigo. Years ago, I had the opportunity to attend to the Disney's Approach to Customer Loyalty course at the Disney Institute located in Orlando, FL.
This opportunity literally changed my life, because I suddenly found joy in my life during a time of deep sadness. The source of that joy was the discovery of the business behind the magic of Disney during that three day course. What impressed me the most was when our seminar group had the opportunity to go behind the stage at the theater of Legend of the Lion King—a Magic Kingdom attraction—to see the team responsible for bringing that story to life.
To see such talented puppeteers working in such perfect harmony was really out of this world. And then to later see them after the show and to discover just how passionate and true to their hearts they were was truly touching. I mean, to see the real people responsible for the magic was quite literally, an experience of a lifetime—and one that I'll never forget.
After that spectacular visit, I had the opportunity to take my kids to see the show a few times in the years that followed. They were so excited to know and couldn't believe that I was actually behind the stage once, witnessing how a really small group of true artists took turns to give life to the characters on stage.
But when the attraction was cancelled I couldn't understand why. I mean, it took me a long time to get over it. I wondered about the talented people behind the scenes. But I thought to myself, "They definitely became part of the cast in the Broadway show."
Recently, this same feeling of deep regret came back to me when I read the news that Disney Infinity was going to be cancelled. On May 15th, I took my young boy to a local store to find the Spider-Man playset. A young employee at the store said, "The only stock we have remaining is over there, because the company that made the game closed down."
I was so mad, but at the same time, relieved, that my boy didn't hear that. So I immediately started a search in my phone's browser, and I found tens of links all saying the same thing that the store clerk just reported. I didn't tell my boy, and I still can't bring myself to do it. I'm optimistic, so we'll just keep playing for as long as the game allows us to.
In this case, regarding Disney Infinity, I don't know any of the talented people responsible for the masterpiece that has given me and my boy such joyful moments of play. But I would most sincerely like to thank them from my heart. Having had a previous experience where I had the opportunity to meet the real people behind the magic of Disney, I am positive that each and every person who worked behind the scenes of Disney Infinity was a true artist as well.
I insist that I do not know any of these people personally, and I don't know the specifics in regards to their behind the scenes work. But I figure, and can only imagine that it took perfectly harmonious team work to design and make the figures, design and produce the amazing graphics, record the music and the sound effects, develop the software, provide customer support, supply the stores, and to promote the game, etc.
As a recent but true fan of the game, I can only imagine the dedicated work that went into such a masterpiece by all of those truly talented artists. So, again, I would just like to sincerely thank the entire team responsible for Disney Infinity.
Additionally, I wrote this message, because I was recently in contact with friends of the Disney Infinity team, people that care so much for them. So I insist, my identity is not of importance, but if I can support these artists, they're welcome to contact me here.
Once, again, thank you team Disney Infinity.
