What area code is Disneyland??

Post by LittleDollClaudia » Mon Dec 29, 2008 8:42 pm

So I had a guest come up to me with a paper that had a number with the 310 area code on it. He asked if he could make this call from his room. I said he could, but since our area code is 714, it would be considered a long distance call.

He then asked me if this call would be long distance while inside Disneyland.

Ummm...the first thing I wanted to say was, "No sir. Area codes and times zones do not exist in Disneyland!"

But of course I said that Disneyland is in Orange County and most of it is 714, so yes it would still be considered a long distance call.

He said ok and walked over to his wife. I hear him saying to her as he's holding his cell phone, "Well honey, I don't think I can make this call since we're in California and our cells are for Utah. We will have to find a pay phone."

He walked out before I could say anything.. :rolleyes:

When I made a phone call on my cell phone home from WDW, yes, we were charged for long distance call and roaming charges too. :rolleyes:

Maybe he has a special cell phone that only dials Utah phone numbers?

And requires a wall plug? (And maybe a hand crank!) :rolleyes:

Or Hawaii.

I wonder if he had a limited use cell. They advertise cell phones with LARGE buttons and numbers, and can be made to only dial certain numbers?

OR

He is not that clear on the concept!!
