Long Disney and work related rant that I’m leaving untagged because I just REALLY wanted to say it for myself.
I don’t want to reblog anything for my own reasons, but I just have to say this.
Adults complaining over Disney character hairstyles and dresses and who aren’t treated like children at meet and greets are RIDICULOUS.
Maybe there’s a whole other level of Disney fandom that I just unconsciously ignore, but how absolutely fickle is it to waste energy on being genuinely upset or frustrated and complaining over something that is intended for everyone, yes, but mainly for children?
I have met some amazing face characters and I have met some that I wasn’t impressed with. Would I ever complain about it? No. Those cast members go through intense auditions and gained their roles for a reason. They’re long running or consistently in those roles for a reason. Some people aren’t as good at improv as others, some people aren’t as fluent when trying to interact with adults or people older than them. Heck, there are even some that seem to have a more difficult time meeting with children!
The bottom line is, their job is hard to get and I imagine, hard to maintain enthusiasm and sincerity with day after day. Everyone says they dream of being a Disney princess and at the end of the day, it’s still a job. People have strong points, people have weak points. Some people will love your services, some people will be under impressed…
I think a lot of this also stems from working in customer service for a long period of time. No matter how well I do ( or think I do ), I will ALWAYS get more complaints than compliments. And I guess this just boils down to the public. People are a billion times more likely to rant and rave in depth about something they dislike than give credit where credit is due in a positive way. But in an adult oriented atmosphere, I understand it a little more.
As for appearances, look at Mickey when he was introduced and now.
Change is necessary. It happens and will continue to happen. Keep an open mind and deal with it.
Complaining about Disney princess hairstyles? Or that something wasn’t ‘magical’ enough for you somewhere that’s generally intended for children? That ‘this person’ or ‘that artist’ ruined something special for you? You’re how old???
Life is what you make of it. And so is a day at Disney.
I just don’t understand the people that feel the need to waste time complaining about things ( and even encourage other people to complain about them ), but it’s just ridiculous when an adult is angry they didn’t get enough pixie dust.
If this is what the Disney fandom is really like, I’m glad I’m not as overzealous as the hardcore fans. :|
( ps. I’m not saying if you don’t like this or that, to keep your mouth shut. I just think people really need to put things in perspective and stop spewing negative remarks and defending negativity like it’s a life changing event. You are a grown up, even if you dream of living in Neverland. Being young at heart is always allowed and even encouraged, but it doesn’t mean you have to act like a child in your maturity.)
