Please note that the title does not mean “how to make a cast member fall in love with you.” That would be weird.
No, I’m talking about how you, dear reader, can be the perfect Disney Guest when making a visit to the world. Especially on busy and hot days (Ahem, like the Avatar: World of Pandora Grand Opening Day and, well, all of summer). Those kind of days. Can you just imagine what Animal Kingdom cast members felt when they saw lines stretching to the parking lot on Saturday, May 27th? I’m sure not ALL of those guests packed their patience that day, and I’m sure all of them were sweating bullets. However, I’m also sure all those Cast Member were extremely prepared, and treated every guest with kindness and professionalism.
I too want to visit Pandora. But crowds like that are not peachy for my anxiety, and if I had to work that day, I would be having panic attacks left and right. So here are some things you can keep in mind the next time you visit Disney for a Grand Opening, during a holiday, or just during a particularly hot, random day. As a former cast member, I can assure you that these things will be appreciated.
