Last night I had a chance to sit and visit with an old friend. He recently came back from his honeymoon at WDW... and he was so overjoyed. This is a current CM who works DL day in and day out. He sees magic and makes magic. But anyone who has worked there will tell you that the more you work the more prone you are to losing that magic. It is with that thought in mind that I viewed MC last night and today. It is with that thought that I realized how much MC nitpicks the magic, and how... for those visiting... that nitpicking can actually diminish the magic. If he had decided to read all the WDW threads then he may have noticed various cracks, or theme violations... instead of just taking in the moment. Some would say that Disneyland is in the details... I say it is in the hearts and minds of the kids, and the kid in all of us.
I am just as guilty of pointing out various flaws... but in the grand scheme of things does it really matter? The average person is there to have fun, to celebrate, not to judge or critique. The only thing that bothered me was a rather cold reception at the Jungle. I know he may have hit them on an off day... but it makes you realize that the attitude of the Cast can make or break someone's trip. One smile can turn around a bad day... several bad attitudes can make one.
Just a few musings... any thoughts.
