I tried to get some gentle warnings out, I really did. It went south anyway, partly due to fangirls’ ingrained talent for enabling and reassuring each other that it’s all cool and okay.
I have a friend at DCA City Hall who has informed me that 14 written complaints have come in over the last 3…
First off, in order for those people complaining that these girls are there everything, those complainers would have to be there every night to know they’re there every night, so it sounds like a bunch of angry people who don’t have the sense to get there early for a show. There’s nothing wrong with camping out for it just like there’s nothing wrong camping out for Fantasmic. If these girls are getting abusive and possessive, then that’s not cool, but what also isn’t cool is for your friend who works for Guest Relations at the Chamber of Commerce (DCA’s GR isn’t called City Hall) to give information like this to a friend and have that friend post this information on the Internet, ESPECIALLY when that information includes park management calling guests “creepers.” It’s also not so great when they could probably narrow down who works at the Chamber of Commerce and punish those work there for this information getting out when it paints such a poor light on the park.
Actually I’m totally with the post right above me.
Being from Guest Relations, I’m rather curious who is telling their friends about information like this. Those statements, be they concerns or compliments, cannot leave the security of the office. I’m not going to say I stay squeaky clean about keeping my mouth shut at work… I love indulging my friends about interesting guest concerns, but I make sure to have trustworthy friends that understand that if they post anything about my job on the internet, it could get me fired.
Guests come in and leave concerns about EVERYTHING, every little detail. But to every concern, there are also compliments.
And being a huge company, policies are always changing. They may have to do with these concerns, they may not.
Point of the matter is… please don’t get your friend in trouble. It may be someone I know in my department.
I’m not an avid fan of the MTP, but I have a good number of friends who I can usually find among the fans that camp out, some people that I have worked with and gone to school with. I usually find them when I’m wandering around as a park ambassador, and you know what I find them doing most of the time?
Sitting around. Chatting. Joking. Laughing. Drawing. Having a good time, like you should be doing at the Disneyland Resort. I have yet to witness anything along the lines of being rude and inconsiderate to others, and I trust these fans enough to know that if they respect the place, the people, and it’s guests, they will call out anyone who is.
