well, all of you know by now that Disneyland just recently held a Dream, Create & Imagine event that offered people who bought tickets to the event get a chance to purchase or bid on items that were displayed at Disneyland's 50th anniversary celebration right? well some guy from Florida bought all the crowns that adorned Sleeping Beauty Castle and guess where they are at now? EBAY! Yes it seems that this clever genius whomever he is (he's probably a mice chatter) cut the crown into pieces and is now selling auctioning them off! There's also the lamp post 50th signs that adorned the flower planters on Main Street during the celebration. Hidden 50's im sure going to Follow!, For me this kinda makes me very angry, i was talking to my uncle who has worked at the park for almost 35 years and instead of giving the cast members a chance to own a piece of the 50th they decided to make money off of it!They never got anything for their appreciation, in fact he told me that some of his co-workers got fired for trying to steal the 50th props!when they were backstage, It's very sad to see that Disneyland did this. In the past, the would offer cast members first dibs at everything from special events. They should get a chance, i mean they are making the magic for guests. When i worked at the park for the 50th all we got was a measly pin,book, and ears. I mean come on they have the money but it seems that they don't really care about their cast members anymore. I believe the last time they ever offered anything was when DCA opened in 2001 and Cynthia was the DLR president, after that everything sort of went downhill, Thats why they are always, hiring thousands of people everyday, people will get hired and then realize that they don't get anything out of it then a measly paycheck and a weird schedule. It's not the happiest place on earth once you work there! (but thats another story)
Im just boasting my opinion and hope that no one takes it the wrong way, i just wished that DL did not sell those pieces to the public, im hoping that they kept something for the archives, but then yet again people will want to own a piece of history so, its natural do that since they are all about money. What do you think?
