I've never been to dsneyland (nor do I want to, come to that in a min. ), (I have been to a couple of other parks) BUT,
WHERE were you standing, that you were sent away?
In the middle of the exit (or queue) of a ride?
Possibly you where blocking the place off or causing a hazard!
If that were the case, then no
you can't stand or sit where a stampede of people are coming!!!
And no, of course
you can't just lie or sit on the grass!
NEWSPAPERARTICLE year 2000(Disneyland Pairs): [...]break-even target of 27,000 people a
Now imagine they would all walk on the grass and let there children run around on it, I wonder what the pretty lawn would look like?
It would be EFFIN unrepairable on the first day!!!
I'll move on, VERY QUICKLY...
"Full of occult symbols"
Well have a look at the entertainment industry and I mean any
branch of it! That's the way it is. I will not comment on my opinion, but you
will alwys have those symbols in parks, that sell the most: and ATM a lot of occult stuff is there!
They only use things that 'the general public' want.
'nough said, post needs shortening
[...]Even the smiles on the employees faces were sterile.[...]
Have you got a fulltime job (standing all day, a bit of manual labour and possibly responsibility) where you have to smile all day?
Before anyone says, 'yes!', let me continue!
I did mention smiling ALL the time didn't I?
Oh and those minor things like
- having to put up with screaming kids (and adults *cough*) all day
- cleaning up trash and worse behind the same customers you are treating so well
as well as
- "only doing your job" and having people constantly speak back at you:
After the 27.000th time saying:
"I'm sorry you can't stand here because you would be blocking an emergency route, sir!"
"No you can't walk on the grass, because it would damage it, ma'am"
And then having some 'wierd nutters (PLEASE do NOT take it personally, I understand where you are coming from, but the poor worker doesn't!) ask
things about 'occult symbolism' and park design.
- Oh and I bet (I do NOT know) they don't get much more than minimum wage....
=> Hmm... I reckon my smile would also be nailed on, especially as my job hangs on that smile!
What about you? Fancy a new job???
I didn't really think so!
When I went to parks, I always made sure it was midweek outside school holidays, so that:
- I was sure I would not have to stand ANYWHERE for longer than 1/2 - 3/4 of an hour! (Average 15 min.!)
- The poor workers smile genuinely, because they aren't stressed out and they even have time to have a short chat with you.
- And to top it all: You can sometimes even have 'double rides'!
(You realize how unfit you are, if you want a second ride and have to run out of the building, around to the beginning of the 'queue-line', in the
other side of the building to catch up with the end of the queue again!
Ah, BTW: the reason I wouldn't go to disneyland Paris, is because I don't think you would have a chance of a nice 'peaceful' sunny day!
BTW, personally I don't go for the shows, but the last couple of times, we went on the rides the first day and after a nights camping on the second
we were so exhausted, the ladies got us into the 'boring shows'.
Oh... shows... I just remembered something: All parents will hate me for this, but for all of you that find shows boring:
Accept the following information as fact:
"Parents only explain the shows to their children, as and when they have understood them
Don't forget to tell that to your mates that are with you! We had so much fun! Everybody was wondering why we found the kid's jokes so funny! OMG,
Goodtimes! (Don't look at me like that: it was meant to be entertaining: it was entertaing!!
K, I think I'ld better stop
