  • neglected items during refurbishments---needs to be addressed

    I have noticed from time to time items as I visit disneyland that were overlooked when certain attractions are slated for refurbishment.

    Yup. But don't feel too bad. WDW has more of those than DL does.

      two items that need to be fixed:

      potc: the characters on the wall of the queue area: some of the artwork is either faded, or disappearing.


      tarzan's treehouse: one or two of the "storybooks" are either torn, or damaged.

        upkeep and repairs must be done on a more regular basis. it shouldnt fall upon us guests(and shareholders-many of us, like me are both) to point out problems like these. this should be the responsibility of the cast members and cast leads.

          Well, I guess that their first priority is the mechanical aspects of attractions so that they are running well. After that the other ambiance adding items come in.

          I do feel that Disneyland is lacking in the upkeep department compared to its earlier years, but I guess with the 50th they wanted to keep as much open as possible ... so some of this stuff fell to the wayside. I'm hoping that now with the 50th over they will get on this ... as it is they are closing quite a few rides for refurbs.

            as long as they continue to do the refurbs/repairs properly and not relapse back to the pressler/harris/eisner error...I mean era.

                I AGREE!!! one thing i dont agree with is that there SHOULDN'T be ANYONE needing to point out problems...they should be fixed so often that the park continuously looks good and no need for thigs like that to come to anyones mind, even the CMs...but it would be understandable if its only once in a while

                  The problem is that all that wanting to upkeep the park was eroded when Pressler came in! It's going to take time for people to care again!

                    I think that the time to care again is now. lets not let history repeat itself. if something needs to be repaired, repainted, replaced(lightbulbs, glass, etc), do it now, not later. if an attraction is not working properly shut it down and repair/refurbish it.

                      Well, at least a good number of attractions are slated for refurbishment in the coming months. The following take place, (not including the Haunted Mansion and iasw holiday removals). Dumbo goes down for over a week. The Mark Twain for a few a days. Gadgets GoCoaster goes down for around a week. Splash Mountain is slated for a monster rehab and has been discussed elsewhere, and then Mr. Toad in Feb. will get a rehab that lasts over a month. So all those guys should be in good shape for Spring.

                        I hate to state the obvious, but even if the place was kept up like you say here, there would be someone pointing out something insignificant or irrelevant. Which is usually the case anyway...

                          Excellent point. People generally have very high standards as it applies to others. I believe it to be impractical and unrealistic to expect the employees to have the same exceedingly high-standards as the paying guests. What do all our workplaces look like? Disney does a good job, for the most part, maintaining realistic standards, I feel.

                            My thought is this. The public is considered a 'guest'. So, that said, if you have 'guest' in your house, don't you try to make sure that everything is picked up and nicely set and the place is vacuumed and such? Sure, the unexpected visitor may drop in, but there is no unexpected vistors at Disneyland.

                              You may feel differently if you had 40,000 guests per day, 365 days a year come to your house. That's a lot of vacuuming. Striving for perfection is admirable, but expecting it is unreasonable. They do a good job, overall. Give 'em a break.
