    Lesson number 1. You do not work in "rides", you work in Attractions. Knotts has "rides". Six Flags has "rides". Disneyland has "attractions".

    hehehe....I was just going to say that too. They'll learn the terminology in time.

    Anyway....just do your training, you'll be alright.

    Hey, just remember this. You can only be nervous if you really care. Anybody who really cares will do fantastic during training.
    Besides, I could be wrong (I don't work attractions) but the 1st day of on the job training is mostly going over the OG, basically lots of readings more so than operating the attraction, and you will be with a small group which makes things considerably less awkward. Good luck and have fun, your working at Disneyland.

    Some OTJT is just one day, atleast it was for me when I worked/trained at Millionare and Flicks Fun Fair, perhaps over at DL it is different and the rides require more then one day of training

    For less anal retentive people, Disneyland also has rides my friend.

    Training isn't hard at all. You'll be nervous but only because of the things you make up about it in your head. When you stop working at Disneyland eventually you'll look back on it as a piece of cake.
