    I think they're going to have a problem with child labor laws. Note that I specifically exempted minors and the elderly. Can't these people do anything right.

    asking APs to clean is just ridiculous...they paid the money for the pass to enjoy themselves as they wish. Hopefully they do so in a way that doesnt destory the park, but even if they do it's not their problem. Hopefully some APs just have the common mannerisms of cleaning up after themselves and what not in acting accordingly with good conduct. AP levels should decrease, yes. APs should not be punished for visiting...

    The 'everyday' APer, by sheer number of visits per week, generates more garbage proportionally. My plan must involve APers, as they are the root of all DLR's problems.
    You would waste - in more ways than one - too many AP'ers.
    APers replenish themselves. See a drop in AP sales? Lower the price by $5. They will come . They can't help it.
    And how would you make then cleanup after themselves ?
    No need: less garbage to clean up, more revenue generated from their randomly selected deaths/or kidnapping.
    OTOH, it would keep the Disney lawyers busy dealing with the felonies where they could be less bothersome
    The Lawyer Overtime issue seems like a moot point, as they will be busier in any case where decisions violating civil liberties are concerned (whether its forced labor, or kidnapping and murder) . But if you wanna make an omelette...

Not only will this be a windfall financially, but will reduce the number of APer's by MINIMUM 20%, relieving the maintenance burden they cause.

    I'm too busy on this message board to actually clean or paint.

    But if you need someone to whine and complain about the crummy job the APers are doing, I'm your man.

    No, really!

    As if it weren't obvious enough, though.

    Every 5th AP hmm? Well my immediate family has 4. Chances are good. Wow, it's like Sophie's Chioce. Can't decide.

(Minors and elderly excepted.) Frequent visitors clearly have time to spare and plenty of (other) opportunities to visit the park so they should be able to spare this little time to support the park they so clearly love. Just make this appreciation more tangible.
    This is a terrible idea. Do you realize how much money Disney would lose in lost paint brushes, brooms, cloths, etc.??? Instead it should be a requirement to bring one of these items and present it to a CM at the front gate in order to gain admission to the park. Perhaps Disney could even make it a reward system. One must help maintain the park for a certain amount of time before that person can gain access to a ride. I'm thinking 15 minutes for an A ticket with the following tickets increasing in increments of 15 minutes. The great part about this idea is that it would either drastically lower the wait times for E tickets or the park would just be incredibly well maintained as people would be cleaning for 75 minutes per E ticket they wish to ride.

    OK, I give up. You can lead someone to a clue but you can't make them ...

    Well, it would hardly be the most insane idea that has ever been implemented at Disneyland.

    And reducing the crowds of AP'ers a bit wouldn't be an entirely bad idea.

    But here's a clue for the Clue-Resistant ... and maybe the Clue-Immune:

    I resent that Just kidding. I am a janitor at a grocery store though. lol.

    i think this idea is hilarious, and i'd happily spend an unpaid hour every weekend painting disneyland. the maintenance and the little details and the theming are what make it so magical to be there, and sometimes when i see something that needs a little fix, i often wish that they would just let me do it because i would ACTUALLY get it done, and done well, haha. such as replacing light bulbs in rides, painting, etc.

    of course, it's totally not feasible. i'm not saying it should actually be attempted, just that i'd actually volunteer.
