    Question Best Disneyland department

    Hello all! I was wondering, which department would (those of you who work, or worked at Disneyland) you say is the best department?

    I've narrowed my department list down to three: Attractions, Entertainment, and Guest Relations. Now this isn't about who gets paid the best (we all know that's custodial anyway), but the most fun, and enjoyable to work for.

    All three have their benefits and drawbacks. I'm in one of the above and adore it, but I've never done the other two, so I'll refrain from voting.

    Ive seen Guest Relations riding around on Segways all day. But if you aren't a people person I would strongly advise against that.

    I'm in attractions and so far I'm loving it. We do parades also. Its fun being able to shout something and everyone listens to you. The power! THE POWWERRRR!!!! =)

    The Hell you say!
    Everyone listens to me! Cus I'm a CM! They have to! Right? Right?....

    No but seriously, its great to yell "Anyone sitting on the street viewing the fireworks must stand up! Thank you!" And its like a giant wave all scrambling to get up. People tend to listen to you if you're nice.

    There's definitely good and bad with all those departments. It really depends on what you enjoy.

    Re: Best Disneyland department

    as said before, every department has its pros and cons. I'm from attractions and what i have to say about that is...it's a lot of fun, but also depends on what LAND you get and what ATTRACTION you get. Some attractions are fast paced and high energy while others can be very slow and not very exciting. So attractions depends a LOT on where you get placed.

    I love attractions. So much so, that I quit in 2001 and rehired last year to the same land. It's my home.

    Re: Best Disneyland department

    Attractions would be quite fun I'm certain, any particular lands? I personally think that Adventureland seems like it would be the most fun, you have Indy, Tiki, and JC; seems like a good lot of rides. Seems like a very high energy land.

    Any thoguhts?

    That's an Auditory Illusion.

    You actually only have to get the ones in front to stand up and the ones behind them have to follow suit to be able to see. You could get the first row(s) to stand up with a sign, hand signals, pantomine ...

    Are they the same area? If so, does New Orleans Square stand on its own feet, or is that part of another department?

    Better question, how are the areas broken up?

    New Orleans is with Critter Country, and basically the Rivers of America. Mark Twain, Canoes, Rafts, Columbia, etc.

    Adventureland, Frontier and Mainstreet are grouped.

    Re: Best Disneyland department

    yeah again, it all depends on what deparment you are familiar with. I am currently in attractions. There are times a hate it to death and there are times i love it. I finally got trained on a bigger attraction so i love it when i get to work there, but they also give me tons and tons of shifts at a smaller boring location that i hate. Plus it all depends on who your manangement team is. i love my management team they are awesome! but i did have a friend who worked in attractions in TL who hated is Management, he said that they were not nice people and never even tried to work with him when i had problems, not true with mine. But then again, i have never worked guest relations or entertainment, which i think i would prefer the two over attractions. I am a performer and that is what i love to do so i dont think i would mind entertainment at all. I wouldn't mind trying out guest relations as well. I am a people person and try to do the best i can when i am approached my a guest who is not having the best day. and normally they appreciate it.
