Driver covered this pretty well. It's a coveted spot, so it allows more cast members the opportunity to do it. I'm sure part of the reason is that it also helps to keep the energy of the facilitators up- to make sure that they are still genuinely excited about doing it. I actually appreciate that they force the rotation- and have it open to pretty much every department. I had a couple of friends who got to do it, and it was neat just to know someone since for many it's the second introduction to the company they get (the first being the actual hiring process)Any idea why it’s only for a year?,Is that so you don’t get stale? Complacent? Give out out-dated information....
What was neat when I was there was that was one of the few areas where people "outside of the area" could sometimes get trained and work. I actually got trained as parade/ crowd control. I never picked up a shift, though I could have, but it made me much more useful to them as a photopass photographer out on the streets before parades and other events. There were a couple of the directors that appreciated that they could ask me to take care of something preparade and I would be able to do it without looking like a "suit."Be on Main Street before the parade and talk to people!!
I have the same goal! Well, to be honest I don't really care which route I worked, as long as it's out on the water. Only 4 more years to go!Skipper the Grand Floridian/Polynesian/Magic Kingdom launch. I hope they're still running in a couple of decades, since that's my semi-retirement job goal.
False. As long as you go full Gaston, I'm sure it would be just as entertaining! Gaston is a state of mind, really....Playing a face character is the best job in the parks. Sometimes I think playing Gaston would be so much fun, but I'm a girl so that would be awkward at best.
THESE!!!!! especially #2Any of these would be fine:
1. An idea man, not engineering or implementation, just concepts and ideas
2. A park ambassador that just wanders the grounds, answers simple questions, and greets guests
3. The person who picks the background music
4. Main Street horseless carriage driver
5. Train station platform worker
6. Teacher/trainer of the Disney 101 course that I've heard everyone had to take
