As a Annual Passholder.. We know the park well and have great insights on what to do and when to do it. I was wondering do you offer advice to other guests, so their visit will be more enjoyable? I did this yesterday and it felt great. Please read on..
Yesterday, I was standing in line to go through security. There was a family behind me who was talking among themselves. I heard them mention to someone on the phone that the rest of their family was waiting by the L. They almost left the line to walk towards Downtown Disney. I then turned to them and asked them, are you looking for the L? And she said yes.. I explained to them it was through security. She then said, oh its inside? I told her no.. This is security.. Then she said, oh this isn't for tickets? I was like oh no.. After that, they started talking among themselves again.. It was obvious it was their first visit to Disneyland. She then looked up and saw the 50th logo hanging on the tent. She then turned to the gentleman she was with and said, I wonder if this park is older than Disneyworld? Me being the Disney freak I am and hate the misconception between the two parks, I turned to her and said this was the original park. She was like, really? Wow.. She then said to me.. Disney should pay you money for giving this information, hehe.. I was like, oh no.. I need no money.. I have the privilege of visiting the park as much as I want and leaving with a smile each time, thats my payment. It was a great feeling giving helpful information to this family.
Then later that same day.. Boy, so much happened yesterday! I was waiting for the 2pm Laughing Stock, Co. show to start. I again, was ease dropping, hehe.. So bad! There was a Mom and Son pair.. They were looking at the schedule.. They were talking about watching Fantasmic. I then scooted myself over to her and said to her..If you want to see Fantasmic, get there early.. She was like, really? I then explained to her how people get there early to get places up front and then I showed her on the Rivers of America where the show would be. I then told her about my favorite spot above Pirates for being the best view of the show. She was happy I gave her this information. Okay, did my good deeds for the week! :)
I did do one bad thing though.. I told a lady the secret of Push.. When she first asked, I told her I don't like to give it away.. But she explained she was an Annual Passholder and has seen Push multiple times but she could never figure out how it was done.. So, I gave in and told her. I told her to not say anything to the kids.. She promised and played along with her girls who came out of the bathroom at that time. But, I think Push's 'friend' saw me though. He walked past me and glanced at me and I just smiled at him! Sorry, I promise, I won't do it again, hehe!! :eek:
So, what do you do? Do you help guests out when they need help?
