Sorry to be a whiner...wasn't meant to be. I just didn't get it....at first...
POC is easily my favorite Attraction, and I COMPLETELY loved the movie, hence the Pirate mickemoticons.
I thought I missed something somewhere. =)
|Okay, okay, here's a question for you. It is a favorite questions of Michelle Smith, aka Fabulous Disney Babe:|
"Where's the nearest bathroom?"
Or the favorite..."What time is the 3 o'clock parade?"
I think the funniest ones I got were "how can I get to Disneyland?"
Or, at the American Adventure, it was QUITE common to have people get adamant that we moved this attraction over from the Magic Kingdom.
dizneluver9: No problem. Being a newb, I guess I wasn't sure how playful everyone was....thought I just missed something.
Working for WDW, was, for the most part, a WONDERFUL experience. I got to do things I most likely never would've gotten to do, see things I probably would've never seen, and met people I'd probably never have met. The sort of stuff most people never have the chance to do.
I met tons of celebs....Michael Jackson (before he got too weird), Saw Princess Di once, Steven Tyler from Aerosmith, Dolph Lundgren, Bob Hope, Liza Minelli, Billy Dee Williams, Hilary Clinton, George Sr. (not W), Roseanne (pretty much that whole cast), John Stamos, Melissa Joan Hart, Jim Lovell, Gloria and Emelio Estefan, Pat Sajak and Vanna--the list goes on and on. Just regular people, for the most part (Except Michael Jackson---he looks as strange up close as on TV).
Helped out with all sorts of special events....filming, Radio Broadcasts, Holiday Celebrations, 3 marathons--
Plus the chance to try most every show and attraction before anyone else....
Mostly, though, it was really neat to be part of such a great organization. I was always proud to be a small part of "making the Magic" for so many people.
The Media Liason job was by far my favorite! It was always interesting....really got me interested in production. Plus allowed me to see how it all worked....and how hard some people work in it. Not sure where you fit into the industry, so I'll try to be kind....biggest challenge, usually, was making the wants and needs of the crew fit with the guests in the park. Some production crews wanted everything to themselves....shut down rides, limit access to areas, etc.---and we had to balance that with people on Vacation, expecting to ride certain things and see certain things...Biggest production I was involved in, though, was a 25th anniversary filming in Futureworld Plaza, on the Fountain Stage....Gloria Estefan did, I think, 3 numbers there, during park hours--it was HUGE!! I have a tape of it somewhere....with a little certificate on it....really nice.
Anyway, I've babbled enough. Sorry again to be a whiner.
