i read a whole essay once on social stratification in theme parks. the main point of the essay stated that a theme park is a place where once one enters, they are supposed to be treated the same, whether they're poor and this may be the only visit they make in their lifetime, or if they are an annual passholder. it argued that vip treatment and front of the line passes create class issues within theme parks. it didn't really get on disneyland and their vip services; it's main argument was against universal studios' front of the line pass.
just a thought ...
Right, and if buying a VIP tour gave you FOTL passes, it would be equally wrong. I do feel the plaids with celebrities should do as much as possible to protect them, including using alternative entrances. It is not a "well, they are stars, so they get this treatment", but more of a safety issue for both the celeb and for the guests around them. If you have ever been at the park when a group spots a celeb, you know what I mean.
If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.
