My brother-in-law worked there in the student program. Two things he told me were the worst.
1) This couple were trying to ride Space Mountain, and had a black duffelbag. He heard something come from the bag, so he asked them to open it. They refused. Security comes, forces them to open it. It was their 6 month old baby. ಠ_ಠ
2) I don’t remember what attraction it was for, but he said a little boy from Make-a-Wish got to go to the front of every line. This one lady saw it, and bitched so loud about how this little trash kid didn’t deserve to cut in lines and a bunch of other bullshit. He described the look on the boy’s parent’s faces as nothing but nightmarish heartbreaking shit. ಠ_ಠ
He told the lady to get out of line and stop being such a bitch, explained that the kid was with Make-A-Wish. She apparently didn’t care, and asked for a manager. Bitches to manager. She is banned from WDW. My brother-in-law almost lost his job right there due to all of the commotion that was caused. Luckily he didn’t.
I worked at Club Disney for the brief time it was open. We had codes we used on the radio headsets that were coordinated with character names. For instance, code Baloo meant there was blood that needed to be cleaned up immediately.
One day, I’m taking a stroll around the club to check on things when I spot a small boy about two years old taking a massive dump right in the middle of the play area. He sees me, starts to cry, and runs away with no clothing on the lower half of his body. I get on the radio and can’t think of what to say as we hadn’t discussed a code for “human feces in the play area and naked kid running around.” So I just called, “I have a code Pooh situation in the play area and Piglet’s on the loose.”
Screener at Disneyland here, if we see something you have that’s forbidden, we know you will just rehide it. We have people in front of us and behind us that are always watching and we can call them to follow you once we know you have something. It’s actually really fun to bust people lying like that. Some people flip their shit.
I used to be a cast member at the Disney store in my local mall. We were required to greet everyone within 10 seconds of them entering the store.There used to be a game online that kids would play about getting to the back of the store, grabbing a stuffed animal from the” plush mountain” and get back up front before getting greeted. I saw this one teenager run across the store and dove head first in the mountain of stuffed animals… only to quickly find out that they were on risers. He was taken away on a stretcher but ended up being fine. And yes, I greeted him while he was in mid air so he lost the game.
