Guest TombraiderTy Posted February 9, 2009 Share Posted February 9, 2009 I think Kings Island needs a larger Ecology (Custodial) staff. I was recently talking to a friend of mine who was a manager in Ecology at Kings Island about typical staffing per area and comparing that to what I learned at Disney is astounding. There are almost 5 times as many "custodial hosts" at the Magic Kingdom as there are at Kings Island, and MK is about 2/3 the size of KI (and that's only pan and broom cast members). And the thing is, it totally shows. Thanks for the GREAT comment, DeLorean Rider. I'm a large fan of Walt Disney and agree with many of his beliefs and opinions. The first quote of his you posted is actually one of my favorite ones of his. On a trip to Disney in 2006, it took just over a minute for a custodial staff member to collect a piece of paper I dropped in the central hub of the Magic Kingdom. Longer than I would've guessed, but still impressive. I love how clean the parks are, it's one of my favorite things about them. Don Helbig actually made a comment about Kings Island's cleanliness at KIC's Offseason Blues Party. He said Kings Island overall goal in that area of park operations was to make Kings Island the CLEANEST amusement park in the world. I hope that this can be achieved- seeing a piece of trash on the ground can lower a person's mood dramatically. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
