It's definately an unforgetable experience, but as many others have said or griped, yes the hours were really long, and yes we were paid weekly, very very weakly (yes I've used that line several times on my boats, and ment it) and yes, the guests could be unbearable at times (I have some of those stories too if you'd like to hear them) BUT (ok, this is gonna sound pretty cheesy and sappy) all that goes away the moment you become part of the 'magic' and watch it happen to the other guests. You can see them just light up and you get that warm and fuzzy feeling inside. I originally didn't want to work for Disney, but somehow I got the job and I'm glad that the Jungle was a great fit for me. I 'could' get away with not being the what I'd like to call "eerily creepy" Disney look with the fake wide grin and 'happy' tone in your voice as you grit your teeth. There's no way I could do that 24/7, and Jungle was a way for me to be fun and playful without being fake nice, and the great part was "I'm still in character!" If I would have been anywhere else in the parks, I'd probably be posting something different in this thread.
