And we got to wear sunglasses.
Anyway, if I had to do a different job at WDW, it would be on a spieling attraction, since my fave part of my current role is speiling in Turtle Talk, and when I previously worked on the Friendship Boats, my favorite part of that was speiling as well....it would be awesome to get to spiel on Jungle Cruise or Kilimanjaro Safaris!
Character Performer (Fur or Face) would be a lot of fun too! I actually think Im going to audition to switch to that soon...I wanna be Peter Pan!! Im the right height and Ive been told I look the part
Honestly, despite the fact that I am a moderately successful project lead and software engineer in Kansas City, I would shovel the elephant sh-- at DAK for a chance to operate Expedition Everest.
Just as a few examples: The Grouse Mountain resort, in west Vancouver, BC, has a raptor show every summer. And let's not forget that the Great America parks, at one time, had dolphin shows at a couple of their locations. So did Magic Mountain (in fact, I was a volunteer there for a while).
Jumping over to Ohio, let's not forget Cedar Point. They've had a dolphin show for ages (assuming it's still there).
So, with that in mind -- If I could do something like that for a day, at my current rate of pay, I'd pick presenting a birds-of-prey show at Grouse. Gorgeous location!
Happy travels. Oh, and Happy Birthday Robert!
And, thank you. :-)

I'd agree with the post above and second "Jungle Cruise Skipper." any other job in the park would be pointless to me. It's JCS or nothing.
