In Which Jenn Convinces the Business World of Her Disney Cred

Fact: I have been known to bring up Disney park customer service practices and enhancement programs in brainstorming sessions at work. They tend to go over like GANGBUSTERS. Seriously. You should try it.

Before Moon and I left for Disneyland, the CEO of the organization where I work jokingly told me that he'd pay for my food expenses if I brought back 25 business ideas from Disneyland. I knew he didn't mean it, but just the same: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

Which is how I came to send the CEO an email last week, encompassing everything from name tag formatting to wandering performers to, yes, feral cat colonies, because A GIRL CAN DREAM, OKAY? (I may have amended this to hummingbird feeders. But only reluctantly.)

And then a day later I discovered that he had forwarded my email to my new boss with glowing praise. My boss's response? She loved my list. But it was the last thing she said that killed me: "You should go to Disney more often."

Lady, you have NO IDEA.

  1. That is the best thing I have ever heard in my entire life.

  2. That is so amazing! Imagine if this could lead to you go to Disney as "business trips" for more ideas? It'd be like winning the lottery!
