    Triviateer!

    I knew that name sounded familiar. Great article! Are you a former castmember of the Disney Store also? I was class of '94-'96. I loved those trivia contests.

    Enjoy the fun and games here and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    Make sure to join us for our regularly scheduled chats Tuesday and Thursday at 9:00 pm est.

    Thank you for the warm welcome. I was never a Castmember. However, I have been a collector of Disneyana since the first concept store opened in 1987. Along the way I have picked up a lot of Disney trivia from real Castmembers, and the many books I have read about Disney, and especially about Walt Disney. I become aware of the real Triviateers from Disneyland years ago. One castmember in the Disney Store in the local mall made the suggestion that I too could be a Triviateer. The name sort of stuck and all my close friends and associates call me the Triviateer among others things, some of which I can't repeat here.

    By the way, Louis Mongello has written the definitive trivia book about Walt Disney World. He is a rising star in the unofficial Disney family of websites. He is getting some attention on several Disney blogs. I would not be surprised if Disney gives him a call in the not too distant future to join the company.

    Welcome Trivateer! We have lots of fun here, and yes, we think Lou is a great Disney representation as well! But don't tell him, we don't want him to get a big head....

    This is one of my favorite Walt Disney quotations:

    "That’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don’t remember what it’s like to be twelve years old. They patronize; they treat children as inferiors. I won’t do that. I’ll temper a story, yes. But I won’t play down, and I won’t patronize."

    Here is a bit of trivia some of you might not know:

    Disney Castmembers/Cast Members are not allowed to respond to any question from a guest with, "I don't know." They must give the guest an answer by asking another CM, or calling special numbers they have.

    This is true. We had monthly meetings at TDS before or after hours where we would learn more about our products and role playing on how to interact with guests to best find items to fit thier needs.

    But realistically, any sales consultant worth his salt may not know every answer but surely knows where to look to find the answer. I still work in retail and treat every customer as I would a guest.

    Welcome triviateer! I'm new too!

    That'd be cool if Lou climbed up the ladder and became president of :mickey: !

    Don't forget me dude... "Tampa" lol

    I'd go to the park and at the gate I'd be like, "I wanna talk to Lou... your boss"... they'd be like, "We don't know no Lou"... and I'd be like, "Tell em' Tampa's here and he wants to be a CM on HM"! "Oh... we've been expecting you Mr Tampa" woohoo!



    see ya around triviateer!

    There are no bosses at Walt Disney World. You just ask for Castmember Louis Mongello and they will let you right in.

    I just listened to the interview of Mr. Mongello with Jim Lamberth. It's great to place a voice with the person. Just go to "About the Author" and then go to "Appearances" and find the link to the talk show.
