    Re: Employee Lunch Breaks

    They have their own breakroom/ caferteria that they are only ALLOWED to eat. They can't eat with the guests. They are allowed exacty 30 minutes. It is a 30 minute non - paid rest period and can not answer ANY questions!!

    I prefer the DCA cafe, West Side Diner, The Eat Ticket, or The Bungalow, or the one that we like to call The B.O.B!

      That's not exactly true.

      You can't eat within the guest facilities in costume.

      If you changed into civies, ate, changed back into costume and checked back in in time it would be legal.

        Actually you can't, people told me you aren't allowed to do it anyways. I did it ONCE. Worked at HISTA, took my top off, wore an undershirt, went over to the Pizza Port and brought my lunch there and went back to HISTA/ Got in trouble for it.

          You were still in costume. In fact, you were in partial costume on stage which is itself a violation of the rules.

          When you are not on shift you are on your own time but can't violate other rules. Of course, there's also on issue here about going on stage out of costume from backstage (if you change).

            Last week I saw a CM eating lunch at Pizza port all by herself in full costume. I thought it was out of the ordinary but she looked hungry. I would think she would perfer eating at the Inn Between away from the guest.

              Thats kinda dumb... thats freakin 1 hour of my work time on food is kinda too expensive for me.

              I hate it when you have to clock out at the nearest clock box and then walk to the cafe. sometimes, it takes me 10 min... have to answer all these questions on the way there. :'( Some of us sometimes just dont bother eating lunch because we just dont have the time...

                Sometimes it isn't enough time, it takes like 5 minutes to walk to the cafeteria, wait in line. order, 10 minutes to cook the food, 5 minutes to pay, and another 5 minutes to walk back to our area and the last 5 minutes to scarf down our food.

                    Sunday I saw a CM carrying a Carl's Jr bag across Adventureland. Unsure if he was in costume - he had black or brown pants and button up shirt - striped maybe? I don't thin it was an "obvious" costume if so. He disappeared over by Bengal BBQ. I was really, really confused.

                    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                    And I can tell you 'bout today
                    And how I picked you up and everything changed
                    It was pain
                    Sunny days and rain
                    I knew you'd feel the same things...

                      why is that confusing? People often care food to the nearest break room so they have more time to eat instead of eating at the diner.

                        First because it was Carls Jr, which of course isn't available in the park
                        then because I thought that CMs weren't supposed to have food on stage, even if they were just walking across a land. So, I guess you're saying that is OK... I just haven't ever seen it before!

                        It just looked really out of place.

                          he probably got it from a cafeteria that was closed. the cafeteria in dca was closed for a little bit and so they brought in carls jr. I am assuming its the same thing in that situation. and for me. i really dont have time to get to the cafeteria, i work the pier and so it also takes me ten minutes to walk there, five minutes to get food, sometimes more and then a couple to eat and run back to my location. i really wish that they would let us clock out at the cafeteria and not at our locations especailly when our locations are far away from the cafeteria. i guess sometimes its okay and disneyland because there are three different cafeterias, but there is only one available at DCA.

                            The Inn Between was closed the the Carls Jr. catering truck was provided in place for lunch and the CM bought there and carried it to the break room to eat it. It happened lots of times.
