Weekend open thread: Who's the best theme park employee ever?
Since I've spent the better part of the week visiting doctor's offices after last week's, um, annoyances, instead of doing any actual reporting, I'm putting up this topic for Blog Flume discussion:
(Did I mention my allergic reaction to the antibiotics for the strep? Not good times. No, not good times.)
Who is the best employee (okay, cast member, for the Disney fans), you've even had the pleasure to encounter when visiting a theme park? Who has taken that extra step you needed to make a vacation even more special?
Please be as specific as you can about the park and location, date and time of the encounter and the name of the employee, if you remember it. Describe what the employee did that made him or her stand out, and how it helped.
Have a great weekend!
I have to say I find the most professional employee's at Disney theme parks. This one guy sticks out. We were at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and it was a buffet type place, with african treats, and lots of delicious food. Our waiter was the nicest, most attentive guy we've ever encountered, and he made our visit to this restaurant even better! I wish I could remember his name, but he worked his butt off. I remember he took a seat next to us and said, "Oh boy I am very tired, I'm just going to relax with you for a bit. How are you enjoying your stay?" He saw his boss and said, "Oops, I'm going to have to get back up." He was great.
Given her recent video on the internet, I'd have to say Minnie Mouse at the Paris Disneyland. She obviously bends over backwards to make the other employees happy. I can now understand why it's called the Happiest Place on Earth. ;)
When our oldest son was 3-years-old, we took him to the Magic Kingdom for the 1st time. (He's 16 now, so it was 13 years ago.) We got there at 10 AM and he had to go on Dumbo first thing. There was a red-headed female CM working the ride. She looked like a young, thin version of Sarah Ferguson, but with a heavy southern accent.
Don't know about best employee ever, but I currently give my nod to two of the chain saw carrying zombies at Universal Studios Orlando Halloween Horrow nights. One is a petite lady dressed up like Alice in Wonderland and the other is a non-descript crazy hiding at the exit of one of the mazes next to the Jaws attraction. Both deserve kudos for putting their all into scaring the guests.
Oooh yeah, that Alice chick is hot, considering she's covered in blood, etc..
i like to nomittee connie my marheting prof because she used to wark at disney as a cast member and she can teach as well as be a cast member
the best theme park worker would have to Tim Martian. He was the manger on duty at Disney's Carribean Beach. Unfornatuly we got to meet him beacuse of a accident but we has very prompt to getting there continued to call to make sure everybody was okay and made out experiance worth while.
