The Disney Temple

Last night at Tokyo Dining, a World Showcase restaurant with a clear view of World Showcase Lagoon. Guests lined up hours before the final show.

The Disney Temple.

The brand loyalty (or is it brand worship?) by Disney’s most affectionate Guests (and Cast Members) is remarkable.

Having been on the inside for 30+ years, my love and admiration is for the team that creates this daily, world-class Magic.

The helpful way i first got to understand how our Guests feel began in 2008 when i purchased my first iPhone, the iPhone 3GS.

Note: Totally aware i talk and write as if i am still a Cast Member. An active Cast Member on the weekly payroll – absolutely not. A retired, 30-year Cast Member with a retiree Cast Member ID card with all the same benefits as a payrolled Cast Member except Backstage access at Guest locations – absolutely yes.

For what it’s worth, i remain a (monthly) payrolled Cast Member through the Disney pension plan.

The feeling that comes from simple gratitude

The night we got home from Glacier, a dip in the pool at 11:30PM.

The feeling that comes from simple gratitude.

Late yesterday afternoon i floated in the 93-degree pool water, surrounded by sunshine, palm trees, a chorus of Florida birds, and reflected that a day earlier i was not sure our flight would leave due to Montana’s late September Snowmageddon.

So grateful to be home.

The juxtaposition of the two geographic locations reminded me how much i love living in Florida.

Who’s the leader of the band that’s made for you and me? Mt. Reynolds the day after i summited.

Another Mt. Reynolds summit shot, with Mt. Clements (left, with snow).
Underlined: To spread joy like no other brand can. How cool is that?
One-half mile East of Ptarmigan Tunnel (just to the right of the snow).

Farewell dear friend

Haven’t memorized this mountain’s name yet.
Reynolds and one of only a handful of cars we saw all morning.
Going to the Sun Mountain. Faintly in the upper right corner (white image), you see more of the mountain.

Today is bittersweet.

Bitter because the high altitude hiking is done.

Sweet because i’m going to Disney World.

Also sweet because 2020 reservations are set.

No place like home

Yesterday morning. A huge weather change is just beginning to arrive.

No place like home.

That’s how the saying goes.

Five weeks in Glacier on this trip, and 10 weeks total this Summer.

That’s a long time to get familiar, and comfortable, with a magnificent place like Glacier National Park.

Ten weeks can begin to feel like home.

Leaving home can be challenging, and exciting. Same can be said for returning home. It’s unique to in both scenarios simultaneously.
