The Best Possible Job: The center of Disneyland

http://bestpossiblejob.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

As a brand new Cast Member, you completed "Traditions I" at the University of Disneyland yesterday. Now it's time for your first shift.

As you show your ID at Harbor House, you're waved inside. No passport or annual pass. And not only are you in, there's a time card with your name on it. At Wardrobe, there's a nametag to match.

The Best Possible Job: Disney on ice

http://bestpossiblejob.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Dry ice, and lots of it, kept Outdoor Vending's ice cream bars, ice cream sandwiches, frozen juice bars, and frozen bananas cool back in the '80s. Although the stuff can inflict a sharp burn if you touch it without gloves, it created a refreshingly cold respite during the summer heat. Reaching into an ice cream wagon definitely beat dealing with hot popcorn oil in July and August!

The Best Possible Job: Around the bend

http://bestpossiblejob.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Summer heat was somehow hotter when you worked in Frontierland. Maybe it was the rugged old West setting that seemed to make temperatures feel like they exceeded those in other parts of Disneyland. It might also have been the fact that Frontierland's location was almost exactly centered between the two Cast Member cafeterias.

Disneyland taboos are still important

http://bestpossiblejob.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

It seems like it might be past time to dust off the original handbook given to Walt's new hires back in 1955. I received a reprint of this manual for creating happiness when I joined the Cast in 1983, and I still use the lessons that it taught today. Here's the text of one of the most important sections

The Best Possible Job: A magical little park

http://bestpossiblejob.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

As an Outdoor Vending Cast Member back in the 80s, I could tell when summer was over at Disneyland without looking at a Park operating calendar.

The Best Possible Job: Royal Street revisited

http://bestpossiblejob.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

"...Watching these guys play and hearing their sounds again makes me feel like I know I've got to get back to my work location--but also that I'm risking being a couple of minutes late. Maybe you've got to get back to work, too. Right now, though, you're a guest of this blog...."
