Okay, gang...I'm pretending that I'm the new president of Disneyland Resort. I'm gonna be a real stern one, like my favorite grade-school principal, who was an amazing combination of discipline and reward. And I think I can learn something from how the airlines operate for safety and comfort in a communal space.
Here are some of the new programs I'm implementing the first day on the job:
I have rules of conduct printed up in every language and passed out at the gates. Just point to the language you need. Just like in Walt's days, if you break rules, you are removed from the park. Walt was sooooo strict that way.
Back packs are banned. All carry-ins must be within a prescribed size. (I know this is okay, because I brought up twins and never used a backpack. In fact, in the early days, nobody would think of bringing a backpack to the park.)
Same with strollers. Just like there is airline-approved carry-on luggage, there would also be Disney-approved strollers. Think minimalist. Don't have one? Rent it in the park.
No photography of any kind allowed inside attractions. (Sorry, but have to sacrifice that part of the trip reports.)
And then the rewards for good behavior! Random Good Citizen buttons handed out by cast-members to guests who display their best manners. Random coupons for Mickey ice cream cones. Fast passes to RSR. Free admission tickets for the lucky few! The competition is on to be the very best possible citizen. We all know security is watching us while we ride attractions. Pull somebody off at the end and hand them that random reward.
Okay. That's my first day. Comments? Too Draconian? Do the mc'ers hate the new president? What would you do if you were president of DLR?
