    Editor:

    Dr. Graham Walker's article “What Can EM Learn from Disney?” is a reprisal of the book we were tortured with by administration in 2004 when it first came out, If Disney Ran Your Hospital: 9½ Things You Would Do Differently by Fred Lee. (EMN. 2020;42[3]:19; http://bit.ly/2TfSSSV.)

    My answer to administration was it already did, evidenced by three-hour waits, Adventureland as the emergency department, Tomorrowland as diagnostic imaging, and Fantasyland as administration. I was removed from the working group for not being a team player.
