I do not work for the Disney company because I need too. I work there because I love too. I love the magic. Where else can you work where it is in your job description to create happiness? The Disney brand is huge. TV networks, Travel company, cruise lines, movies, resorts and of course theme parks all over the world. But me, I get to spend my days in the park that Walt built. The park where Walt walked. To this day I do not step on stage without a slight pause as the reality hits me that I am a small part of the magic that kept kids up last night knowing that they were coming to Disneyland today. I do not take this for granted for one second. Walt said “You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world, but it requires people to make that dream a reality” You are those people. So I just wanted to thank you for making my days so magical.

This is why I come to this happy place. To escape from the real world. I deal with the public everyday and Disneyland is the only place where I feel that I am treated just like how I treat my customers at work. With eagerness and joy, and not being "bothered" because someone asked me something or ignored. 😤Just about everywhere you go now a days that's seems to be the way people treat customers. I pray that Disney keeps up on hiring and keeping employees like our CMBaloo.😃 He is what Disneyland is all about. Taking pride in what you do and making others happy. If everyone acting this way, the whole world would be a better place😃😃 - simba77  323.3 #788 7:31PM
