LOAD 513 Day 10

LOAD 513 Day 10 Study : our VIP tour guide had just finished his long 6 week course and we were his first trial run! We gave him high ratings, he was shy but personable and great with our kids. I highly recommend VIP tours if you can affford it. Journal: Wow…talk about the right place at the right time. And it helps to know people in high places! Our friend Jon Boulter works at Disney. At the time he worked at Cirque De Sole specifically. But a few years ago he worked his way through a special Disney service offered to special guests who are willing to pay extra (as if we don’t already?). Jon used to be a VIP tour guide and now having finished his time in the program and done well they ask him to come back and rate the new inductees. They go through their tests for 1 day. And we happened to be there on that day! It was awesome. Jon and his wife Katie and Katie’s lil’ friend (a child she was babysitting that day) and our family met our guide Jonathan just outside the turnstyles to begin our morning! We got into Disney for free!!!! It was amazing. Jonathan was so nervous because ours was the biggest group (most everyone else got Disney cast members) but Jonathan go real live guests! It was great for him. We had a lot of fun. Definitely the best day we’ve ever had at Disney. Konner had so much questions he go answered as well as learned a secret way to get the high score on the Buzz Lightyear ride. I wish we had the money to get a VIP tour in the future. It was amazing. He even made dinner reservations for us, helped us meet characters and rode the rides with us (which our kids loved). I highly recommend this service if you’ve got the money. But unless you are Bono, Jewel or a star NFL quarterback it’s probably not likely. (yes, our friend Jon was a VIP tour guide for those and many others)
