take a moment?

I find the wages of Disney’s Cast Members to be startling low, especially given the excellent level of Guest Service provided overall, and the amazing beyond-the-call-of-duty actions I’ve seen many of them take. The contract that’s currently being re-negotiated is here, on the Unite Here! 362 web site. For wages, scroll down to page 53, and page through the Appendices.

Despite the general economic picture in the US, Disney stock is at an all-time high. C’mon Disney, let’s see more money and health care benefits for the front-line Cast Members who make the magic happen.

my BFF’s recent blog post about current WDW contract negotiations prompted me to send an email to WDW in support of union negotiations. perhaps you might be moved to do the same? click here and send a note of support or perhaps some snail mail of your own? those CMs do so much for us, let’s al take a moment and send them some love too!

more DFTW – Hong Kong style!

i learned from someone over on the dark side that hong kong disney also has weddings although DLRP does not which explains the lack of success i’ve had in the googling department. though i give kudos for the detailed info and pricing available up front (unlike the american DFTW counterpart), i definitely take away points for the lack of creepy videos or menacing wedding guests. when in rome, i suppose….

at times like these

i wish i could read japanese! i found this link on the dark side to the tokyo disney weddings site. and they sell dresses. dresses which are not my cup of tea, but are more “princess-y” in inspiration than those blah kirstie kelly american ones.

if i were in the market for a princess inspired dress, i would WANT some obvious references to the princess i most loved in the dress – i love the snow white sleeves in ivory!!  i wonder how much they cost. am going to have to investigate translation…

hunchback question

Posted in #godforbid, blog things, pole dancing, poll, youtube on March 1, 2010 by sambycat

given the rise os “stripper culture” in these here united states, would disney still put in a brief, yet seemingly purposeful, reference to pole dancing in this scene were it being made today? they could have miley could do the voice, right? or is that too obvious?

food for thought

yes, it is true, i have gone overboard on blogging off of items found at but i can’t help myself!!! especially when, as i was surfing this morning, looking at vendor entries that i am hoping will help us decide whom to choose for our event, i came across wedding pics from shades of green. that’s just one of those places none of us will get to visit and i was curious about it and have a twitter pal who just got married there… so i click on the beautiful pictures….

so, very much in the wedding planning stage. talking with disney, date pretty much confirmed. just awaiting cost estimates and all the nitty gritty to hash through. in getting ideas for deciding on the “wheres” and “hows”, i came across quite alot of info about the myriad of locations available within the parks for receptions. i tried googling up some of the sites, but didn’t find much on my own…

today, pal Sherry tweeted me a link to this site, the disney wedding blog. and what a great source of ideas and pics! i am transfixed!! mostly i am loving this latest post, about a vow renewal reception in the great movie ride!!!

and then…… DESERT IN OZ??????!!!!!
