    What Happens When an Atraction's Closed?

    I was at the park yesterday and noticed that a jungle skipper I really like was working the Tiki room. I know that CMs are cross-trained for the attractions in their land, and they work them when their attraction's down for refurb, etc., but it got me wondering... Doesn't that mess up schedules? Aren't the other attractions already well-staffed? Or do they just double up on CMs during that time? :confused:
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    This is just a guess on my part.

    I would guess they senior employees get sent to other attractions. Less senior employees at the closed attractions or who are bumped by the most senior employees get their hours cut.

    Again, this is just a guess.

    Just take a gander at CMs doing guest control at Fantasmic! and other events to see what CMs (low seniority that is) do. That, and those lovable 'group shifts' which means nothing, but that your "1st in line once a shift opens up" ie. you're on call.
    Glad I'm not in attractions. Stores don't close, and when they do- we go to another store. They're all pretty much the same, no special training needed.

    Not necessarily I have a few friends that have been at the resort for years and years that LOVE working fantasmic guest control shifts. That being said. . . generally CMs with high senority will bump those with lower senority to other shift locations and/or times. The problems come when CMs aren't cross trained or... all the attractions they are trained on are closed at once (this has happened) at these times, the CMs are slotted to Fantasyland Theater guest control, Fantasmic (thank God we have this show more than just in the summer now), or misc support (soon to be parade support for WDPOD).
