“I’m bringing a group of 82 teenagers from August 25 through 31, and we’re staying at Pop Century. What should we do about the people who get angry when we shove our way through the lines on attractions? After all, we’re a large group and can’t afford to wait 45 minutes for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Can we have Disney explain to everyone else why we need to get through the lines faster?” – Vitór Rocha Dias, São Paulo, Brazil
Just don’t go to Walt Disney World. There are already enough people there without you. [Ed.: Okay, this fits, but is anyone else starting to notice a pattern in Harriet’s answers?]
You know, this reminds me of when I was watching the opening ceremony for the 2016 Olympic Games. One of my friends, who is familiar with Tour Groups at Walt Disney World Resort and Spa and U-Pick Blueberry Farms, commented that ‘There is absolutely nothing in the world that I associate with Brazil more than watching large groups of people in brightly coloured outfits following a flag and yelling.’
As a Brazilian myself, I refuse to answer questions that play into stereotypes. After all, some Brazilians stay at the All-Star Resorts.
August 25th to 31st? I won’t be there, so enjoy!
Hi Vitor! I took my reply over to Google Translate, and did you know that they call Portuguese “Igbo”? Huh. Anyway, this should be easier and faster to read than my response in English. I think we all should have such compassion for our fellow man as to pre-translate everything we say for them. Why, maybe one day, we’ll all speak the same language and make it a small world after all.
I remember when I visited Saint Petersburg, Russia, on a cruise and I didn’t know a single word of the language. It was so stressful. I can’t imagine what it would have been like to be there as a part of a large group on a tour and only have my tour guide. Fortunately, they had buses for us to get around to the different tourist-y sites, with just enough time between stops for, and I’m not making this up, the same people at the last stop to set up shop at our next stop. What a whirlwind.
And when grouping, it’s important that you line everyone up by age, because in Thailand age is very important. They did a great job showcasing this on Season 5 of Survivor. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. Anyway, without further ado, here’s my advice for your group:
