There are kids that won't sleep tonight because they are going to Disneyland tomorrow:
My boat was tied off and the skilled Boat-Loaders
started assisting eager passengers through the doors. The first one aboard was
a young boy about 8 years old. He ran quickly to the front of the boat and scooted very close and started talking and asking questions. He was followed by
a few other young friends and several adults. As I chatted with the guest he was very talkative, commenting, very loudly I might add, on
everything. With each silly comment his family would chuckle. I could tell it was going to be a bit of a challenge to be heard and to try and concentrate over
his banter if this continued throughout the cruise. It did. A
constant stream of 8 year old silliness that is family thought was hysterical.
As we were leaving the elephant bathing pool, after Squirter made his best
attempt at soaking the back of the boat and the boy made yet another remark, I
heard one of the ladies in his group say to the other “ I see you have found
the perfect job for Carter!” to which the lady replied “ Yes, we have known this
for awhile now, he is future skipper for sure”. Then it hit me. I suddenly
realized, this young man was me. This was me many years ago. I was the class
clown, the family comedian, the cut –up. Eight year old me rode these boats
looking up to the fearless, skilled, clever skippers and thought “ I want to do
that, I want to work here, I want to be one of them”. My parents said, “You
will make a great Skipper someday”. But I never thought that dream would become a
reality. It did. I teach new Cast Members almost every week that here at
Disneyland we create happiness and make dreams come true. I was reminded last
night that that happens for Cast Members as well as guest. When Magic
is being made everyone in the area is effected by the fall out. With
every “Hit it Skip” my one of my dream comes true. I was reminded of it
last night by an 8 year old Skipper name Carter. He is welcome on my boat anytime.
