Theme Park Rangers & Top Ten List

Orlando Sentinel has a feature called Theme Park Rangers.

They write the latest news from The Walt Disney Resort, Universal Studios, Sea World, Busch Gardens, and other Central Florida Tourist Attractions.

By the way, just or fun, here are the top reasons I have spent the past 25 years of my life working in Central Florida:

  1. The daily opportunity to make other people happy
  2. Palm trees and sunshine
  3. The fanatical focus on excellence
  4. The fanatical drive to be creative
  5. Unwavering belief in the value of memories
  6. Great leadership
  7. World class team work
  8. Our childlike enthusiasm for making work fun
  9. Wonderful people and wonderful relationships
  10. The cafeteria food  🙂

Make it a GREAT day.  Carpe diem, jungle jeff  🙂


It’s our differences that unite us.

So, part of diversity is our belief system.  I celebrate Easter, and therefore, wish anyone reading this, “Happy Easter“!

Realizing that many of you do not celebrate Easter, I completely understand and totally respect our differences.  To you, may I please wish you a joyful day, in your special and unique way?

This is what Diversity is all about.  And many companies embrace Diversity, and I’m encouraged by the World’s progress.

When Walt Disney was dreaming, he said Epcot would be about two things.  Epcot would celebrate, everyday, the things that unite us, like technology, innovation, etc.  Epcot would also celebrate the things that make us different, like culture, beliefs, etc.

This is played out perfectly at the Epcot Theme Park in the two sections, Future World and World Showcase.

Make today a great day to remember what’s important to you and to try to celebrate it everyday!  Carpe diem, jungle jeff  🙂
