    hey guys!

    noticed that there wasn't a board for operations cast members on this forum so thought i'd start one! operations people need love too u know!!

    i was so happy i got picked for operations was my first choice and sounds so exciting! can't decide whether i'd rather be on a ride tho or a greeter or at the entrance! and which park?! don't even get me started on that one! MK and MGM rock but then come to think of it all of WDW does!

    flying out on june 25th til sept 1st btw!!

    see ya

    Hey I'm going to be in Operations (well Attractions to be precise) in, I think, 11 days!

    I'm already over here and my first 3 months is F&B, and then I get to spend 8 months doing the Jungle Cruise :D

    I'm so excited!

    I'm ops too! May 30th to September 1st.

    I've thought looooooooooong and hard about what I'm hoping for...

    Start at the top of the list... If I cant have one, I want the one below it... That's how my mind is working :D

    Splash Mountain
    MK Attractions West (Frontierland/Adventureland/Liberty Square)
    MK Attractions
    MK Park Greeter
    Attractions at any park
    Park greeter at any park

    So, basically... I really want to work at MK... And I'd love to work at Splash Mountain :p

    I really want a ride...or to say something at a show...or I dunno...i have a list of the ones i want the most...but who knows.

    1. Rockin' Roller Coaster
    2. Everest
    3. Safari
    4. Pirates of the Caribbean
    5. Kali River Rapids...maybe
    6. Splash Mountain
    7. Soarin' Over California
    8. Tower of Terror
    9. Dinosaur
    10. Great Movie Ride
    11. Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular

    I think I'll be happy anywhere...although I'd prefer to be indoors, i get sunstroke pretty easily. I dunno.

    This will be so much like acting so I don't think I'll have a problem. If I can remember lyrics to so many musicals, then a script shouldn't be too hard. And if I have any problems, I'll just sing it!

    Good plan! A wee sing song makes all your troubles go far away!!!! :p

    can you request an attraction/land/park for where you want to do operations etc.?
  12. KC

    KC New Member


    Also, you can't request attractions over park greeter (or vice versa). Well, I suppose you could but there's never a guarantee where you're put.

    You stay where you're put... and it's the luck of the draw, I suppose...

    brennan0720 New Member

    thats understandable

    i think the cm's on tower of terror are so cool though... that would be a wicked job, same with operations on any of the mountains

    Working for ToT would be cool... but from what I've heard, the ToT CP's are a little high and mighty...you know, because they have such a cool job and there's a huge waiting list for it.
  15. brennan0720

    brennan0720 New Member

    yea but they have practically the coolest atmosphere ever

    if your a cm can you go behind the scenes at other attractions, for example ive always wanted to see the control room at space mountain?

    I've just been accepted for merch & attractions (YAY! ;D), no mention of operations....hmmmm..... is this a different offer from operations? Lou were you initially operations or attractions? Just curious since it's the same program? :-\

    Anywaaaaaaay, I'm soooooooooo excited about attractions! I'd love anything with a speil or which requires some acting (HM etc.) Great movie ride would be awsome too! Ooooooo or it's a small world! YAY! Oooooooo I'm so not gonna sleep tonight! Hmm... it's a world of laughter... :D

    brenan0720, you can go back stage but technically you're not supposed to be in a location for which you have no reason to be there. It would also depend on the area's management too. ;) But you could always try and set up a work shadow type thing. You know....... any wish is possible.......All it takes is a little courage, to set it free. ;)

    Hehe yay Ona!

    Yeah I was originally Operations, and they didn't make up their mind about where we were going until a few weeks ago...I guess it might be that Spring Break had just finished and they needed to sort out where labour was needed.

    A girl I know over at Tomorrowland Speedway said that once during hurricane warnings (so all the outdoor rides were closed) and it was before the park was opened, they all got to go ride Space Mountain with the lights on and no music, except they played the Splash music on the way up!

    How cool must that have been.

    Cool cool. So if I'm attractions, I am attractions, if you know what I mean. Lol! ;D

    Awsome! Most Cms have a couple of insanely cool stories to share. ;) I can't wait to get some more! ;D
