    So now we all know what Christopher Robin looks like after the "chop".

    I would definitely not have liked being in guest services! I had enough guests upset at me (not for my mistakes) when I worked there.

But Darby is the girl and her dog Buster now joins the gang. Sadly, no Christopher is in sight but he is still around... just not on this program.

    Thanks for the TR, as always. I can't wait to see Mickey Mouse in the Cinema on Main Street, even if it limited. :cgrin:

    I didn't realize the home team had dwindled so much. When I worked at DRC, it was really new, and I'd have preferred to work at home myself. But again, I'm not a salesperson, I just wanted to help guests have a wonderful trip.

    Did you have a different agent name? (You should PM me, I am sure I'd have talked to you before)

    Working at DRC is a tough gig, I admire anyone who can do it well.

    I don't like the whole sales thing. I used to get talked-to each week because I spent too much time on the phone. I wanted to help people, not sell them packages that they didn't need.

    Where did you work? I was one of the unlucky ones to work over at DRC. Still cannot believe I managed to stay there as long as I did. Must have lost my mind for a while. Hence the "Macy's/Bloomingdales" remark. We had people all day asking if we provided transportation over to Universal, that was one of our usual replies, along with a bunch of others as you can well imagine. I could write a book on the things people would ask us.

    Please don't be defensive. You have some really good opinions and that is why I think they are taken seriously. I'm new here and don't really know you well enough to know when you are being serious or just kidding around. Sorry we got off on the wrong foot. Let's just go forward from here. We should be able to come up with good info for everyone. You have a lot of Disney experience and I worked for them for 10 years. Let's start again. Hi, my name is Lindsy, what's yours

    All I meant was that you had a lot of good information, but it could have been condensed a little, for a forum. You are a good writer, why don't you contact Tom over a WDW News Today and see about writing a column for him? You have a lot of good current information and I think you would be a welcome addition to him. Only one complaint, why are you so on the defensive all the time? Lighten up a bit.
