I'd say that summed it up pretty well. Thank you!
I agree with the whole issue. people need to respect one another and be kind.
It was in one of the Brazil newspapers. I haven't heard anything recently.:musa:
If they do add Brazil, clothing is NOT optional..... the outfits the girls in the tour groups wear make me blush and I make my husband look away. Though I would enjoy a pavilion with lively music, CM's teaching Samba lessons outside and having impromptu dancing with guests. Shopping for emeralds and beautiful jewelry. Perhaps the pavilion addition would be an opp. for natives to speak to them in their native tongue and address their rude behavior (when it comes to waiting in line for rides and at restaraunts). I saw a older man from Brazil berate a CM hostess and demand immediate seating at a restaraunt.... we all applauded when the manager refused. Disney should make a rule as far as saving spots in line at rides that no more than 4 persons may be added.... period. They sure cut down on the people violating handicapped lines ..... Would like to see Australia first though.
NO NO NO IT WILL MAKE THEM WANT TO COME EVEN MORE. as a cast member i had a VERY bad experience with them (i was sent to the hospital for crying out loud) so i am very short with them. gosh. they need a disney park THERE so they no longer bother us. i am not a hateful nor racist person but they REALLY bother me.
How can they bring a lot of money to the parks when half of them cram into hotel rooms double occupancy or just sleep in the lobbies?? I bet Disney would make more money from normal human beings who are deterred from going to the park in July every year because of this insanity.
I'm brazilian, and I'm not going to disrespect any of you, I just want to cast my point of view regarding this issue.
First of all, I love Walt Disney World and I have been 4 times there since I was a little kid (one of them on those groups). I do realize you guys have an negative view about brazilian groups, and I'm not blaming you for them, but to generalise it for the entire country that is clearly prejudice. You may have been to the WDW a DOZEN times, and passed through brazilian families going by tHemselve many other times without noticing them because they were, as you say, Normal.
I've been a Cast Member already, and I'm planning to go back as a CM soon, and I do know how it is to deal with large crowds as groups of people. Notice you guys I said people, not emphasizing any nationality. I, for an example, had trouble with american cheerleaders at least twice while I was there, and I do not think all americans are *****y or abnouxious like those girls.
Guys, when I was a KID I thought americans were fat, ugly and self-centered people. But I get myself to know them, and I noticed many other characteristics that diminished my prejudice.
I've travelled all over the world, I've been on more than 25 countries on 5 continents and I loved and hated characteristics of each, but I do not say that "spanish people are ****" or "canadians have no personality". I say I met people that looked like that. I can say that because I get to know people and did not judge them through a particular occasion.
For these people being in Disney is a dream came true, it's a milestone on their lifes, they're happy, that's all.
Sometimes I do understand that these "happiness" get you nervous, cultural clash.
So, I accept you say those groups are loudy and stuff. But please, don't say that about all brazilians. These kind of behavior are the root of many problems we have on our world nowadays, cause its the main road for prejudice. And by that you'll be setting yourselves apart of the rest of the world, being isolated and "hated" by everyone.
Cheers (sorry for the english)
I'm not saying that these groups are right, and now I'm pretty sure more groups will arrive in Florida not only from Brazil, but from Argentina and Chile as well. Disney is actually doing its best to make things better, do you guys know about the Super Greeter program? Its a new Interntional Program for ex-ICPs (brazilians, mexicans...) who are specialised on crowd control, that's the job I'm applying to July season.
In other hand, some of you guys said something about constructing a ***** Disney here, that's sad, even more when you guys have your own president asking us to come as you can see on CNN (I'm not able to post links, yet).
We do like to go to Florida and we are actually helping you guys to emerge this economic crisis right now. I just think before throwing rocks on people, you should give them a chance to be known.
And if I get to be selected to the job, I'll make my best to make your trip the best one EVER. Haha.
