    New Dapper Dans To be recast...again

    yeah. auditons are in a month according to the disney website. I just got used to these guys. Disney truely has made the Dapper Dans just another park job. It used to be somethign special where you could count on seeing the same people for years and years till they retired or died.

    Hey, more jobs, more chances for people to gain some experience doing what they love. I support it.

    Do you have to know how to sing like a barbershop quartet or do they have equalizers?

    Sad to say, same. I guess I shouldn't say that I don't care, but I just know that it does no good to care.

    That's seems like an odd reason to support the recasting. Would you be okay with being let go so somebody else could just take a whack at your job?

    It may have to do with not wanting to pay those Cast Members more money...recasting it means beginning those performers back at the bottom of the pay scale as opposed to giving raises to those who have been in the same position for a long time.

    I SOOOO wish some of the old guys would reappear! I miss them, and their spontaneous routines.

    Maybe they are just increasing the number of Dapper Dans to handle two-shifts so they can be there for the entire operating hours of the park? Just trying to think optimistically.

    I think it's good to keep things fresh, it can get stale after a while.

    I was just about to post this. What in the world makes you think that they are going to get rid of the guys they have now? I've already seen several new faces, especially at the flag retreat ceremony which is much later in the day. Some of those guys will get other gigs or go back to school, etc....just like the carolers. Even the glorious "Old Dans" had alternates otherwise the entire quartet would go down everytime someone had a conflict or got sick.

    I've yet to hear a bad Dan's performance, so I'm not too stressed about auditioning for some new alternates.

    Oooo good point - well stated.
    I know I wouldn't like to be let go so someone else could take a whack at MY job.
