    Re: New Disney Park in the Caribbean Rumors

    Also being Puerto Rican, I'd have to add... Why build it in PR? I mean it's a beautiful place but at the same time it can be dirty and old.

    Dude don't be so harsh on fellow 'ricans. Some here might feel that Chupacabras thing a little insulting. Anyway, for me it's a very funny name.

    BTW I am not a CM

    The Mexican economy has been taking a beating from China (welcome to the club). There is a reason why illegal immigration from Mexico has been increasing.

    I once had a dream they were building a Disneyland in washington and I was going to get an anual Pass T_T but then Eisner decided to build it in my towns old fairgrounds which was much too small and then it had an allyway themed section and a bunch of carnival rides so I started arguing with him about it and I woke up. I wanna have an annual pass to a theme park someday (be it Florida, California or dare I even Dream of Tokyo o_o)

    on the subject of building in the Caribbean I think that it is MUCH to close to WDW, heck I think WDW is reaching the point of being oversaturated with parks, they really do need to concentrait on filling up and balancing out (plus maintaining what they have)

    people arn't going to stay for a month at WDW after all so WDW Caribbean would be just a bit redundant (though a stop on the Disney Cruise may be ok)

    Anyway I am sorry that this thread created so much controversy, but folks lets face it, everywhere you go you'll find some rotten apples, some places in higher quantities than others. As for "nuyorricans" well, those are in their own barrio world. But that's a long story for another day! :lol:

    And you know Disney mgmt is going to love those wages they would pay there -- just like many corps. moving jobs there....

    Obviously, you have missed some of my many positive topics about WDW, but this one ain't. I don't think you have the right to tell me what to look for at WDW, as I call it as I see it, and have the right to do so just as much as you do have the right to offer a different opinion. You can say all you want about WDW with your rosey glasses on. I will comment on positive things as I stumble upon these, but I have issues with many things at WDW that are simply NOT right at the moment, and as a paying guest, I recent them even more.

Still, it bother ms so much to see the total slacking off by some (NOT all) CM's there...and to hear them putting down the company in spanish when they think we guests are not listening, it's quite a depressing BAD show. Reason why I come down hard on my fellow Ricans.
    I agree that things should be done the traditional way and I as a CM do my best to upkeep these standards. Though I think if you looked across the boards you would find the an equal number of all types of cast members that are disgruntled. So to save time I am just going to agree to disagree with your thoughts on how things are and I'd reccomend to try and change the way you look at WDW. If you look for the good I garuntee you will find it just as if you look for the bad you will probably find it.

I will take a polite and friendly old bat (who probably knows what it should be like to be a Disney CM) over some barrio princess who is there for a paycheck and has no manners to work in a position of customer service, and probably doens't even know a flying hoot about the Disney ways and philosophies.
    It's not the eighties anymore yes. Though WDW is still WDW. It ticks me off that some out there will say that since the company has changed (with the rest of the world) that the CMs are in some way different or less caring over all. In fact with the way the World is today it is amazing that WDW is still able to find as many good people as they do. Now I may be wrong in saying that these so called "old bats" are all bad (it's just been my general expierience) and don't get me wrong there are some really nice old people out there I work with. But more on track it's been my expierience that all of the Puerto Ricans I worked with were really nice and really good workers and belive me when i say that nobody is Disiney for a paycheck (at least not a good one).

    It really doesn't make sense to me either. Maybe a DL in Brazil or Argentina, and even that is iffy given the volatile economies in South America.
