Have any of you GDB readers out there ever taken a guided tour? I know they still offer the tours, but wonder how many people partake. I could be the "annoying guy" (a role I was born to play), and ask stupid questions, just like I do here!
I was a little surprised that the guide's name tag doesn't have just her first name. "Tracy", or whatever; (it says "A. Bronwyn" - if you know her, have her write in. She's probably a GDB reader!). It seems like being a guide could have been a fun job, if you had the right mind set. Throw in a few erroneous "facts" for extra laughs. "The Mark Twain was the first steamboat to break the sound barrier, which of course helped win the vote for women". "There is a bomb shelter under Sleeping Beauty Castle, just for Walt Disney and his family, with enough food and water to last 10 years". Stuff like that.
Meanwhile, over at the Flower Mart... nothing is happening! As usual. I've always wondered if Walt and/or the Imagineers ever had any other ideas for luring guests down West Center Street? I love the Flower Mart because it is nostalgic, but admit that I probably would have walked right past it - unless my mom forced us to take a look (which she would).
