Disneyland requires work for people to enjoy the funYears ago (many, many), I was a boy under ten when our family traveled via station wagon to Disneyland. For me, it was the experience of a lifetime. Disney had a show on every week and of course our family tuned in to watch it (back in the days of six channels (CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, perhaps a couple of spanish channels). As a businessman now, I appreciate the marketing angle of a time slot which promoted your product (Disney theme park visitation) regularly.
The first time in the park was like a dream come true. Of course I cried out of fear when a lumbering 6 foot plus Goofy came toward me in a gait with outstretched arms. Hey, he looked much smaller on TV so leave me alone on that one. I also remembered how pretty the snow white actress looked to me. So pretty.
It was a magical experience. Now, I realize the work which it took to create that experience for consumers. People to maintain the rides and park, costumed actors, attendants, business office and more.
Mr. Disney worked for a long time, spent a considerable sum and increased his odds when possible to bring his dream of an amusement park to a reality. A place which seemed magical back then (probably true today as well) but required so much work in order for others to enjoy the fun.
I am a CPA in San Antonio and provide bookkeeping, payroll, taxes and more. We offer a free initial visit and look forward to serving your business needs.
