We all know the story of how Disneyland Paris (EuroDisney back then) struggled during its first years of operations. Being in marketing, I was very interested in learning more thoroughly about this (sad) period DLP faced. I rented a book from my university's business school which covered the whole case, and I read a fact I had never heard before. It stated that during the early years, cast members who loaded guests into the rides would charge them extra money before letting them into their ride cars. Has anyone else ever heard this? I couldn't imagine the management nightmare it must have been for Disney, but then again, Europeans have for a long time been used to fairs where you pay a (low) entry price and then pay for each attraction individually, so I guess some "clever" CM's took advantage of this to squeeze some extra money in for themselves if this was true.
