As far as dealing with other guest who may be rude. It's true you can't control another person's behavior or attitude, but you can control your own & how you choose to deal with the situation.
Kindness is Kool!
YES! Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you! This is by far the best post I've ever read. :) Smiles and manners get you the best service, always.
One of the things we like to do the most is just go to a park and people watch. Take in an attraction, grab a treat, a bench, and just watch. It's also a great time to get a wide angle view of your surroundings and just enjoy the beautiful architecture.
I can get with this at the Disney and Orlando parks. I would agree with this for Busch Gardens VA also. But this is definitely not the experience at the Six Flags in suburban DC. Not in the least happy or friendly - either the employees or most people attending.
