The Greatest Place on Earth

While I find myself worried about work a lot, every once an a while I get reminded why I work in the greatest place on earth.

Tonight, It was two animation greeters dancing in the Animation courtyard to the "dance party" music.  And I laughed, and said to myself, "this is what we get paid to do."

If you bitch about your jobs at Walt Disney World, you are taking it too seriously. You work for a company that pays you to make our guests happy.  In order to do that, you can be crazy, go all out and have a good time.

It is really hard for me to accept you hating your job when you work for WDW.  You can hate your managers, you can hate your pay rate, but how can you hate your job?

If you do, you need to find that one place, that one thing, at WDW that will remind you why you work here.  Find those two cast members dancing in the Animation courtyard... or the families on the carousel at Magic Kingdom, or the child a cast member just made stop crying.  

We work in the worlds largest playground.  Sure there are things wrong with where we work, sure there are bad people. But if you cant find the good in what we do, then you have no heart.  There is nowhere else on earth you can do what we do, and get a way with it.

I am not sure why I felt like writing this. But as soon as I noticed those two cast members tonight, having a great time, I said to myself, I need to write a blog about this.  It was just one of those moments where things hit you.
