Howdy there partners! Hope y’all are having a Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah day ! (Did you see what I did there? Definitely in character, wouldn’t you say?)
For the past two days I’ve been having my
Splash Mountain Training… gosh, that’s weird now that I think about it – it definitely
feels like I’ve been there for a week at least.
Anyway, my Frontierland group was split up, so now there are only two of
us in our group. We have learned how to greet people, how to
maintain the Fastpass line, how to load and unload guests, the basics of
wheelchair assistance, where strollers go, proper attire for riding the
attraction, and the height requirement (40 inches). Yesterday we learned the opening procedures
and today we took a walkthrough of the attraction. We need to know all the scenes, the drops,
stairwells, and exits for the safety of our guests and for ourselves,
especially when powering up the attraction.
I wouldn’t want to be in the way of an incoming log, would you? All in all there is a ton of information to
learn, but I still have a few days of training left to master it all. I’ve got a pretty good idea of the layout, so
that’s good. Tomorrow I have training at
6:30 followed by a 5:30 shift, so I definitely need some sleep. Working at WDW is a tiring job;
tiring, but satisfying. Once I’m done
training I’ll have worked for 7 straight days, but thankfully I have Friday, Saturday,
and Sunday off. Then I can finally go to
the parks! Well, that’s all for now folks,
have a magical evening!
