Hello all. i have been a MWer for a long time - i think i got MW when it first came out for the iphone, but im not 100% sure. my friend recommended it to me when we were both APers (summer 2009 to summer 2010). anyway. i never post anything because it always seems like there is just so much talk already going on in the lounge - why bother adding my two cents?. well, now i work for Disneyland :) and i've been wanting to ask all of you for a very long time: how many of you here actually stop for the research guys and give them a few minutes of your time? to anyone that does, i would just like to say thank you so much for helping us out, as well as making our job just a little bit easier :)

there is a simple way to answer people by saying "unfortunately I can only take the answers from the person I have approached . It is our rules" not just be rude and turn their backs to you and ignore you like you are nothing...we all deserve to be treated like people! - yellowtonka  244.7 #1419 11:09PM
you are absolutely right! the cast member should politely inform you that he/she can only accept answers from the person intercepted. simply ignoring you is so wrong! - she  4.0 #24398 11:15PM
Agreed! Same thing happened to me - rawnuhCM  308.9 #863 11:17PM
No telling of it will ever happen again, but I got $75 cash one day for doing their surveys. - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 11:18PM
Ok im stopping next time! - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 11:30PM
See what you could have missed! Neener - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 11:34PM
All I ever get is one of those stickers!! LOL - Mimmy  1442.3 #118 11:36PM
Me too stickers - ScarfGirl  642.6 #314 11:50PM
I stop all the time and I've never even gotten a sticker hmmm! - Jackie211  483.3 #439 11:53PM
We always do.  - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 10:30PM
We've done it a few times it's just a few minutes and easy if we have time to do it and sometimes we get cool stickers lol - princessVanessa  384.3 #585 10:30PM
I always do its the least I can do to say thank u for such a magical day :) - yvetteissogoofy  194.8 #2062 10:31PM
We just did when we were at DL on Thursday...we always stop if they (you) ask  - MandJloveMickey  212.6 #1841 10:31PM
If they ask me, I almost always stop unless I'm in a hurry. I love giving DL my feedback. Makes me feel like I'm helping make the park better in some small way! - Mimmy  1442.3 #118 10:32PM
I did on our last visit to DCA.  :) - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 10:32PM
We have when we are asked. I would hate to be ignored other than that we have ap so its not a big deal to stop when we visit alot. - lalalala  4.8 #19575 10:32PM
90% of the time I do but there have been a couple times when I was really tired/grumpy/hungry that I just couldn't - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #218 10:33PM
We've only been asked once, but we were happy to stop and answer the questions. I think it's great that they want feedback and suggestions from guests and APs. I still have my cute sticker 😊 - Nala  375.8 #603 10:34PM
I always do. - ERICKA  491.5 #433 10:34PM
I always answer. - PrincessDuckie  904.9 #202 10:34PM
We do - missyhidy  245.7 #1405 10:43PM
Until today, I could have said I always stop- but I was asked when we were entering the park and we really were in need of a bathroom...! - MoonWillow  381.3 #589 10:53PM
Welcome officially to posting and congratulations on becoming a CM! 100% of the time asked! - Boundin  685.3 #289 11:12PM
thank you! thank you! i've always enjoyed MW, but now that i work for Disney, i feel like i should try harder to get to know my fellow MWers, instead remaining that quiet kid in the corner. i mean, isnt that why we're all here? because we love Disney? im sure i've passed by a bunch of you in the park without even realizing it. i dont want that! i want to be friends with all the awesome MWers! - she  4.0 #24398 11:21PM
I was also the quite kid in the corner for almost a year, I am glad you stepped out! - Boundin  685.3 #289 11:34PM
we always stop...anything to help Disney :) - lilo84  377.0 #600 11:22PM
@she: I've been stopped once in DCA last year and haven't been asked again after that. If I am asked again though, I'll definitely stop. I wonder why they take surveyors in the back room? Pretty random haha - Jacqueline  580.0 #349 11:56PM
i've stopped twice, but i couldn't do the survey in the back office because i was in a hurry to leave. - chris.  2511.0 #56 10:28PM
I always wanna help but no one ever stops me. - Jillian  767.1 #244 10:28PM
this lool - Jenniferr  506.7 #418 10:29PM
Then you're avoiding eye contact...lol. I do that if the kids are driving me bonkers and I just want to get home. - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 10:36PM
this lool - Jenniferr  506.7 #418 10:29PM
We got stopped twice last trip.  Did the survey the first time and skipped it the second time. - kskating  689.8 #286 10:31PM
Im always polite to them but I do decline. - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 10:31PM
It's not like you to keep your opinion to yourself... - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 10:36PM
I know huh! I guess were just always rushing, our trips are always so short. - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 10:49PM
They only ask about 3 things and your email then you do an online survey at home - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 11:26PM
I stop when I can but sometimes I'm in rush and can't. - Dis-Lee  517.9 #403 10:33PM
BTW...curious how you chose your MW name? - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 10:33PM
I knew someone was gonna ask that! lol - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 10:35PM
Well?? lol... - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 10:39PM
We always stop and help out. - Veronica21  167.9 #2438 10:33PM

I stop all the time.
- VfxGenie  1556.7 #109 10:40PM
I always do too but last month when we were there we got stopped and I was asked to go to the room but being 7 months prego and it was like 11pm I had to turn it down. I felt bad but I was so tired and needed to get back to our room and rest so I said no. I'm sorry. But I always have said yes and do the online ones I receive - brodysmommy  430.5 #508 10:40PM
I'm a sad panda if they don't stop me. - CxD_CM  518.6 #401 10:41PM
I did 1 time and it was like 80 questions. After that everyone told me to stay away from them. I guess I just got lucky and got the super long survey. - Nitrobug  1469.3 #114 10:41PM
most people seem to hate us :/ i guess they think we are trying to sell them something. it would be nice if they at least listened to what we have to say, instead of shying away. to those who said they dont do the surveys, but are at least polite when declining, thank you for your courtesy - its so much better than trying to come up with "excuses" :) and to those who do our surveys, thank you! thank you! thank you! you have no idea how much we appreciate your time and feedback. - she  4.0 #24398 10:44PM
We've stopped multiple times to participate. - SergZak  3125.8 #43 10:46PM
Everytime they ask I have stopped I ike doing it it's the least I can do! - Jackie211  483.3 #439 10:48PM
I know huh! I guess were just always rushing, our trips are always so short. - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 10:49PM
We have stopped many times but the last time was quite annoying to be honest with you. The guy stopped my other half and when the questions were being asked he looked at me and asked what our email address was and as I was saying what it was the guy told him that he had to tell him since he was the one he was interviewing...and it was very annoying that everything I had the information for that they wanted the other half had to repeat it or the guy wouldnt put it in his little machine.

- yellowtonka  244.7 #1419 10:50PM
That's happened to us, too -- really annoying, lol. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 10:52PM
We always stop, but sometimes I feel like I'm walking into a shark tank, lol.  I feel "hunted down."  I just wish that Disney spread you guys out over the park instead of right as people are trying to come through the gates. :)
- Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 10:50PM
I did it once and haven't done it since.... I kinda want to do it again but I'm always with my friends and they don't want to bother with it - Ms.SteamboatWillie  167.4 #2442 10:50PM
my username is the first half of my real name. if any of you are ever in the park, dont be shy - say hi! i promise i wont harass you. that wouldnt be the Disney way. - she  4.0 #24398 10:51PM
Okay! I'll be on the lookout for you :) - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 10:54PM

i would love to explain all of the "whys" with you guys. truly, i would. why we do certain things the way that we do. i totally understand your aggrevation, and i feel like if you guys understood the whys, then it would make things so much easier for both of us! unfortunately, i am not allow to divulge any information. the surveys are strictly confidential. and i dont want to get fired. but know that we feel your frustration and we're sorry we dont make things any easier. - she  4.0 #24398 10:56PM
Yeah. That's corporate America. Everything has to be scripted. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 10:58PM

I've only been asked once - cyndaws  258.0 #1274 10:58PM
btw. i am trying to like people's comments, but it seems that whenever the page refreshes, my likes disappear. i guess im not doing it right. i also responded to someone asking about my username, but now that post seems to have disappeared too. my username is simply the first half of my real name. if you can track me down in the park, say hi! i promise i wont harass you. - she  4.0 #24398 11:02PM

We stopped on Friday (: - mrssumr  70.4 #4146 11:17PM

Hi and welcome. Yes, when asked, I take the time to help out :) - misschurro  6361.2 #17 11:26PM

Yep! I always stop! 😃 - aussiekate  165.8 #2482 11:32PM
See what you could have missed! Neener - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 11:34PM
I have always in the past participated when asked, but I'm not selected often. I have also only received a few online surveys. Maybe we should wear a pin or button to be easier to spot if we do want to participate..lol - MWer_Lizzie  113.6 #3362 11:34PM

I don't mind stopping now and then. But it's sometimes hard when you go so much and they are ALL over even DTD now (is that a temp thing), there are SO many all over the resort! And as a guest, sometimes its annoying to get asked 10 times in one visit. But I do understand its your job, it's important to the company and no one knows if you have just been asked 3 times already. 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 11:38PM
They should give you a sticker to wear that says "I Participated in the Survey," lol. Then they would know not to stop you. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 11:41PM

I do, I like giving my opinion about anything and everything. I liked it better when they stopped me and asked me questions outside, rather than taking me to that FREEZING cold little room. It was so uncomfortable in there but they never asked my opinion on the indoor climates. - mandigutterrose  156.5 #2618 11:47PM
Me too stickers - ScarfGirl  642.6 #314 11:50PM
I stop all the time and I've never even gotten a sticker hmmm! - Jackie211  483.3 #439 11:53PM
LOL! i love the button idea. ohhhhh, so many questions being asked! i WISH i could answer you guys!
