January was kind of a terrible month for me, but a bunch of amazing things have happened over the last two days and I have a super good feeling about February.
Why is Goofy’s vest black or maroon in all Disney merchandise, but the meet and greet Goofy wears a yellow vest?
I know the answer! Goofy’s vest is yellow when you meet him because the photographers told him that his yellow vest looks better in photographs than his black and maroon vests do.
|Interviewer:||What would you say was the worst part about working at Disney World?|
|Me:||Well, I don't really like kids...|
Everyone at Disney wears a costume, whether it’s the people working attractions, the custodians, the character attendants, or whoever. When I first started working at Disney in 2009, every single article had a bar code and you would have to have each individual piece scanned out by a costuming member. About a year ago (maybe more?), they started adding sensors to each piece of clothing, so now you don’t have to scan everything. You grab what you need, scan your ID card, and walk through this big machine that looks kind of like airport security. Everything with a sensor in it is automatically added to your record card, so you don’t have to spend five minutes fumbling to find all the bar codes and waiting in line for a costumer to check you out. As someone who started out as a costumer (and now works in a department where I need 15+ pieces each day), I think it’s awesome!
