So on Tuesday there wasn't much, just a meeting on the apartment complexes and the rules. The complexes , によって the way, are REALLY pretty, spacious and have a pool, テニス court, fitness center, and depending on the apartment complex あなた get, it has its own little resort.
The building on the left is a Chatham building, where I live. Those other 2 don't exist, it must be an old picture. All the buildings in Chatham look like the one on the left.
Today was the big day- Traditions. This is when they really drill into あなた the look of the park and how you're supposed to act. It's really long and really boring, although it's fun in some parts. We arrived at a building labeled ディズニー University.
They basically drilled in this message: "WE CREATE HAPPINESS" as the mantra for the cast members of the park. They then took us on a quick tour to Magic Kingdom. If あなた work in one area of the park, and have to get to another, あなた actually go through underground tunnels, including ones below Cinderella's castle, so as not to ruin the illusion for the guests. Remember, ディズニー is all about image. So we walked under a tunnel under Cinderella's castle. Here's a picture of what it looks like.
Under the castle, we passed シンデレラ walking through the utilidors!! Well, a girl playing her. She looked pretty tired & pissed off. If あなた work for Disney, remember some of the magic is ruined for あなた because あなた see the behind-the-scenes. I smiled at Cindy but she looked unhappy.
So, for example, if あなた need to get to the mainstreet of Magic Kingdom from Fantasyland, あなた cannot walk over in uniform out of a park out in the open. あなた HAVE to use the utilidors. In the park they had us remember to look for 4 "keys"- that they stress. FIRST & もっと見る IMPORTANT: Safety.
The lotto for that is "SafeD starts with me!" (the 'D' being written like the d from 'Disney') The 秒 most important is COURTESY. The third is 表示する (making sure あなた ALWAYS project the ディズニー image!) and the fourth is EFFICIENCY.
During this quick tour to Magic Kingdom we turned out of the utlidor into the park, and right as we turned, there was Cinderella's castle. I started tearing up & I was the only one who did so. It was the perfect moment; the 城 was in the middle of its princess show; the first 3 princesses were dancing with their princes. Mickey & Minnie were up there too. Minnie 発言しました she wasn't a princess like these girls, and Mickey 発言しました 'you're a princess to me.' and joined them in dancing. Then the 3 princesses song played, and 'A Dream is a Wish Your ハート, 心 Makes' ended just as we passed the castle, it was perfect. We also passed the Rapunzel meet and greet.
BTW, when a bus is out of service, it says 'Flynn Rider' on it so everyone knows not to board it. AHAHAH
When we got back we had もっと見る super boring presentations. The two leaders sounded super rehearsed but enthusiastic. Mickey came in (they 'pretended' the knock on the door was a ピザ delivery, but it was so obviously rehearsed) and delivered us our name tags. Here's a picture of mine!
We finally got one before we left. によって the end my feet were aching, and I just wanted to get out of the clothes- we had to wear nice work attire. If あなた didn't wear the perfect attire as specified in the handbook, they won't let あなた board the bus in the first place and WILL send あなた back to your apartment. You'll have to do traditions on ANOTHER 日 and it's not a good start.
Yesterday was fun- I went in the pool, it was FREEZING- today was exhausting and boring but at least I'm better prepared.
Tomorrow is my 日 off and I'll be spending it at ディズニー World, since today I got my employee card & now get into the parks for free!
