  • Video Disney castmembers and the H1N1 virus

    I'm hoping to visit Disneyland over the holiday with my family. I just came across this film about Disney cast members who are concerned about the H1N1 virus. Have you seen it yet? What do you all think? [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbdQCHUH3IU"]YouTube - It's A Small World: Disney & The H1N1 Virus[/ame]

    Re: Disney castmembers and the H1N1 virus

    Being a guest at Disneyland poses the same risk. To be honest, I'm sick of all the hype of H191. It's another strain of the flu. It's a bit more potent, but not to the point that people are dropping like flies left and right.

    And using bartenders as examples? Are these bartenders in Downtown Disney? If so, they aren't in the park, so rules are different.....and we have a ton of purell dispensers in the park.

    I get the feeling of someone making an issue bigger than it really is......the music in the film is overbearing for a start.

    For some reason, I get the feeling you joined these forums just to advertise this short video.

      I notice this video was made by Local Union 11. If you Google, they are the same people arguing about health care at Disneyland.

      There are hand sanitizers by meet and greet areas for characters. There is an additional message to prevent the spread of illness on the entertainment schedules. There has been signs in restrooms to remind people how to wash hands.

      Believe it or not, people don't practice prevention even when the signs are there. It starts with the person's behavior and their education to be self-conscious about such ideas.

        Any time you slow down a video and put in down beat music, it'll look like there's a conflict. Just saying.

            I'm pretty seasoned at most of the bars, and the weird thing is I don't recognize either of them....

            The problem is that the sinks aren't readily available.
            Then you'd be shut down by the health department. That is a basic requirement for any food and beverage, and if it's not available, you aren't allowed to do business. Period.

            She says that they are "demeaning" for the company to tell them to wash their hands. Hunny, it's your job. Do it. What do you expect the company to do? Wash the place down with rubbing alcohol and a hazmat team in between every customer. It's the job you signed up for, and it's the job you'll do. If you don't like it, find another job. (And please, for the sake of all of us, PLEASE wash your hands!)

              I don't have an axe to grind here, but I got curious after this post and the responses and did a little googling. It turns out that the doctor with the beard works for a coalition of unions. The guy with the beard talking about FastPasses is listed as a volunteer organizer, and two of the women are union negotiators. Since their positions in the union are not disclosed, it's pretty clear that this is just a propaganda video for the union in its push for paid sick leave.

                  Me too. All it is is hysteria caused by the media.

                    Gotta say I'm with pretty much everyone here.

                    The ONLY reason there was a separate vaccine for H1N1 this year is because of the timing. They simply didn't have time to incorporate it into the yearly seasonal flu vaccine. Next year, it will be a part of the regular vaccine. So this whole "second vaccine" thing got blown out of proportion.

                    H1N1 hasn't killed any more people than regular seasonal flu (36,000 per year in the U.S.) has (statistically). Is it something to worry about? About as much as you worry about seasonal flu. It's particularly nasty if you catch it since it's a new strain no one has immunity to it. People react to it pretty strongly. No need to worry excessively though. Drink lots of fluids always, wash your hands often when in public places where you touch public surfaces. You'll be just fine.

                    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                      I'm betting these are Union shills. Same people handing out pamphlets at the Storytellers Cafe. Plain & simple, not media scare tactic just crappy bargaining tactics.

                        I just finished watching that clip. Nice piece of propoganda. Now answer this, how is Disneyland's work environment different from say a shopping mall? They're making it sound like the problem is just isolated at Disneyland. Bad video.

                          Let's see...I work at DLR handling people's money, I just went through LAX and flew to WDW. I spent the week with all the people at WDW, went back through the airports and today I'm at work, I guess I've been dodging the bullet. Tonight I'm going to a market and then a restaurant. Let's see what happens then. Oh, and I have asthma. If this kind of video makes you worried, you really should do some more research, or not, I mean, we won't have to worry after 2012 anyway, right?

                            In my book swine flu's been gone for about a month now. I have not heard about it at all in my city and no one has been sick at school for a long time. Oh and lets see, my sister works at Disneyland and she has not gotten sick since sometime in August.

                                What a crock of bull, I've only been a CM for two months but let me tell you...There are Purell machines all over the park especially BACKSTAGE..That Lady in the video is just a scare-aholic...My wife has been a pharmacuetical supervisor for 33 years and tells me of many flu deaths in the 70's and 80's from the common flu, many more than from the H1N1 virus. Yes wash your hands whenever but Disneyland as a problem area is only a myth. Check your household remotes if you want to find a problem spot...

                                  You can get sick anywhere you go, simple as that, no use worrying about it.

                                        Truth is the employee sick day policy at Disneyland and many other businesses is broken. People who are truly sick are coming into work to not "lose" wages or get penalized for attendance reasons. These employees then pass on there cold or flu's to customers and other employees. If employees are sick, they should stay home. It is common courtesy whether or not H1N1 is deadly or not. I cannot tell you how many times I go into a super market or restaurant and see employees handling fruits, vegetables etc with a obvious cold or flu, wiping there nose, coughing and then touching the goods. It is disgusting and is not fair to the others who will no doubt get sick from someone being inconsiderate. So whether or not this video is a scare tactic etc, it is important to just be considerate of other employees and customers and stay home if we are really sick.
