    Rollerblading Custodial

    The rollerblades are back as an option for custodial working Tomorrowland. I had no idea they were ever there to begin with. Anyways, just a heads up for anyone who's interested.

    Sounds Dangeous.... people don't look where they are going half the time as it is and bump into other folks... I saw a woman walk right into one of those rolling dumpsters the custodial group uses at MGM yesterday and that was stationary!

    I always thought the rollerblading custodians were awesome. They definitely add to the fun of the atmosophere.

    A great Quote:

    I allways loved the rollerblading janitors, err, custodians. Glad to hear there (back) at TL.

    Well I don't think there were ever any serious problems before or now at Tokyo Disneyland. They shouldn't be flying all around the place anyways.

    Totally agree. One of the guys I work with has had a few test runs and so far the guest reaction is really positive. I think we will start out ONLY with people who are very secure with roller blading then begin to train others who want to.
    Thats not popcorn... thats JOB security.

    Re: Rollerblading Custodial

    Thanks! Will do. As soon as I get mine. We havent had the program going for a while, so our stockpile of useful blades have depleted. One of the managers is working on getting new pairs but until then it will be delayed a little bit.

    Re: Rollerblading Custodial

    I give this one a thumbs-down, although I can't blame any CM who wants to give it a try. It just seems lazy from my view.

    I assume you must also wear a helmet when doing this?

    I'm glad you have a manager that's trying to jump start some excitement in your area and for the theme of the area. May I ask how long this delay is expected to be?

    Last time I checked wearing rollerblades takes more leg strength than just walking, so I don't view this as "lazy" by any means.
