I do have to agree that in terms of management public relations, Magic Mountain is doing a much better job. I see management walking the park, often carrying janitorial equipment if necessary, and frequently saying hello to park guest, and tend to be very receptive to spontaneous guest questions and feedback. By contrast, when I see Disney management in the park, they always seem to be in a hurry, and act like the average park guest doesn't exist, or is only in their way. I've never had one say hello to me spontaneously.
That said, if you approach them, they will be very cordial and polite. But sometimes it's nice to be friendly without being asked first, especially when you supposedly have the reputation of some of the best customer service in the theme park world. The rank and file employer is doing a much better job at that than the management, and Six Flags is starting to do it better all around.
