I’m BACK! I have returned from Disney World and that name is no exaggeration. It is a whole world of it’s own. I cannot imagine how many people Disney employs around the world but I can imagine that all of their employees could easily populate a small country. It would be a nice country too, where service to others and politeness is paramount.
Before I go further, thank you neighbors for looking after my garden for me. My granddaughter will be so pleased when she comes next time. Everything she planted is doing great.
With the exception of Tropical Storm Andrea coming ashore at the tail end of our trip ( I guess even the Disney folks have not figured out how to control the weather but they have figured out how to sell lots of rain ponchos and umbrellas ), we had a good time and made great memories together.
Young people from around the globe come to Disney World to work for a year. I cannot imagine a better mechanism to foster global peace that what happens right there in Florida. Forget politicians. They will never accomplish what the vision of Disney has done. Sure – they (Disney) make money doing it, but they do it with respect and politeness, education and innovation, and FUN all at the same time.
My list of questions for Disney management is endless. I want to know how many credit card machines are in each park. Have too many transactions at once ever shut things down? How many different stations does each employee train for? How long do they stay at each station? How many children get lost each day on average? (I had a horrifying twenty seconds when I couldn’t find my granddaughter in a sea of young faces.) You get the point. Those bus rides to and from the parks each day gave me ample time to wonder about all this and more.
I went somewhere new and learned new things and did new things. That is my definition of a great vacation. Thanks Disney!
