When we think of the most happiest place on earth, we think of the magic that we experience as soon as we enter the gate of Disneyland. Walt Disney changed the world of theme parks when Disneyland opened in 1955, and the park has been thriving ever since. At Disneyland, dreams come true, people fall in love, proposals are made, kids get to meet the characters they love, and it seems like the world is absolutely perfect.
But, what a lot of people out there don’t realize is that there is a ton of work involved when it comes to making that magic a reality. Per uncle Walt’s standards, there are things that park guests don’t even notice because he wanted to preserve the magic. For example, there is a security check all over the park, but all of them use to be in regular clothes so no one can even come to know that they’re there. Also, Disney pretty much owns the city of Anaheim, and they have non-equal standards for people who try to be a Disney Princess. Here we will tell you about some behind the scene secrets of Disneyland Employees Exposed.
1. Lost Adults
Cast members are always on the lookout for lonely kids, and once found, they are taken to a special area of Disneyland. There, they can watch tv, read a book, play with some toys, sit in a comfy chair… It’s basically a kid’s paradise.
But did you know that the most lost kids spend no more than 15 minutes at the “Lost Parent” area by city hall? In addition to getting reunited, some families are treated to a fast pass or some sort of perk to help everyone feel better.
2. Disney Date
Many couples get engaged at the park as well as renew their vows. But not everyone takes a “Romantic” trip to the park. Instead, a lot of Southern Californians will use Disneyland as a meetup spot for their tinder and Grindr dates.
According to a former security guard at Disneyland, people are Bumpin’ uglies there all the time. When this happens, the naughty couples are escorted out of the park. But, if the couple is a pair of teenagers, which apparently happens a lot, then security has to make a call to their parents.
3. Royal Standards
Disneyland has the strictest standards when it comes to their prince and princesses. If you have never auditioned to be a face character, it’s a lot like being a part of the cast of a “Chorus line.” They not only look at your face but also your clothing size, body type, and height.
From there you learn some improv and if you make the cut, you are provided with makeup and taught how to apply it so every princess looks the same. The face characters are trained for five days and they have to analyze the film their character is in so that they can learn the right mannerisms and vocal inflections.
4. Say My Name
There are a few ways that cast members are taught to identify you. Whether it’s your birthday, anniversary, or first visit, there’s a pin for that.
You’ll also find that cast members will glance at your credit card for your name. If you’re an annual pass holder, the premium pass gets you a food and merchandise discount, and that pass will have your name on it.
5. Take The Town
If you make enough money, you can almost get anything you want, and that is certainly true for Mickey Mouse and the city of Anaheim. Disney recently acquired nearly 15 additional acres of land from the city which hints that another “Land” may be in the plans.
But one cast member reveals that Disneyland pretty much owns the entire town. They can get certain bills and ordinances passed that will get them tax breaks. Because Disney is the main economic source of the city, losing the park would be a huge blow to Anaheim.
