Well, since you want to get pedantic….”roasted” makes it sound like you corrected the information in a scathing, hilarious manner. You did not. 4) Have you ever been to EPCOT in the dead of summer? With 95 degree temperatures and 87% humidity, the World Showcase is a fucking deathtrap. The first-aid station is strategically placed, I’m sure, because that area of the park gets NO shade. Hard to have a fun time when you’re sweaty and gross constantly. It kind of is Walt’s fault, too - man, who knew that wetlands in an area with A RAINY SEASON get muggy and hold water vapor, amirite? There’s a trashcan every 8 feet, but good luck with heat stroke, motherfucker! 9) is FALSE. The best days were when the attraction I worked next to went 101, because it meant, quite possibly, that the entire afternoon would be free to hang out with other cast members working the obligatory gift shop as well. And it happens A LOT. I don’t know what dream world you live in, but considering the wear and tear and traffic on the rides, no wonder they break down as much as they do. 14) Face characters are not “out in the open”. They don’t sit down and have conversations. You get a designated time and place for a meet and greet, and that attracts a line. The ONLY time quality character interaction really happens (more than a hug, autograph, and “move-it-along”) is during a holiday party or during the slow
season. You never get to run up and hug Cinderella like in the Disney commercials, and that’s the point the author is making. It’s not organic. It’s very much reminding you that this is an experience that you’ve planned and are going to grin and bear through because you have to if you want that picture with Mickey Mouse. Everyone knows, though, that the BEST characters were the random assortment that would get thrown out in front of DAK - no line. Launchpad McQuack and Teenage Max? Don’t mind if I do! 16) It ruins immersion, which is one of the reasons why it’s asked not to be done. Being tired of people too inconsiderate of others to read simple signage isn’t exactly worthy of criticism. Also, my main beef with your criticism is that you’re one of those cast members that apparently can’t take a joke at the Company’s expense. And frankly, those CMs are even below the creepy ones that try to be cheerful but come off as pedophiles.
