Do you DU?

Disney University
Yesterday on New Year’s Eve, while bicycling to Magic Kingdom. Disney University is known to all Cast Members as DU.

With June 8, 2019 and my 60th birthday in sight, i can feel the sense of urgency fading because the finish line doesn’t seem urgent anymore.

And it’s because of this that i am finding creative motivation to stay true to the original plan – to live like i only have a decade to live.

The Internet makes anything accessible

Disney University
Anyone can take this photo. There are no security gates required to get here.

The guy coming out the door and i had a spontaneous 15-minute conversation at the Stage Door Cafe just moments earlier. He was on his third day of training as a Custodial Cast Member.

 

The Internet makes anything accessible.

This is one of the reasons our Son’s 10-day Summer High School trip to Rome and Athens was not off-the-charts amazing.

He had seen copious views (including video, lots of video, even “official” videos) of the places long before setting foot there.

Good judgment is still a thing and i have many Disney photos that will remain private.

YouTube is making, for people like our Son (17), Television obsolete. Why? Because videos like this place the viewer in the middle of the action in a way that TV hasn’t figured out. Small, bite-sized info that’s accessible anytime, anywhere.

Saying goodbye to Disney University’s Mr. Magic

Disney Cast Member friendships
All Bob’s Disney University Colleagues call him Mr. Magic.

 

Disney Cast Member friendships
We watched his going away “Sizzle Video”. A tribute to his 22 years of Creating Magic.

 

Few Cast Members understand the separation anxiety Bob is experiencing.

i do.

i went first, in 2013.

i reminded Bob:

“Yes, it tears you apart to leave Disney because Disney is who you are. You ARE Disney. But here’s the good news Bob, that never goes away, even after you leave.”

How do i know?

From personal experience.

Disney University teaches the Disney Guest Service basics

Disney Traditions Workbook
Disney Traditions workbook at Disney University Lobby.

 

Disney Magic is easy for anyone to create because it is simple.

All you have to do is organize yourself well enough so that your target is so big, you couldn’t possibly miss.

It’s not the extra mile that is sustainable, it’s going the extra inch.

Have orchestrated four inches today and will share with you tomorrow how it turned out.

It won’t happen all day, everyday without decent organization.

So in reading between the lines, it can happen all day, everyday.

It should happen all day, everyday.

Some our not satisfied unless it is all day, everyday.

What is it about a University campus?

University of Iowa Museum of Art poster
the college vibe is unique, youthful, and contagious

 

It doesn’t matter if you attended college or not.

There’s an energy.

A desire.

A vibe.

A yearning.

We should try to walk that way every day.
