Yes.

I just couldn't believe how some of these families, who had 5+ kids, could afford to drop $500 on a trip to Disneyland. This park was, no joke, almost ALL spanish speakers (not just hispanics or other legal citizens whom I dont have a problem with, but people who literally spoke no english). I asked one of the older men (he worked as an information man) about it, and he said that Disney forces him to take classes at the local community college in order to learn spanish to cater to the almost 100% spanish speaking population at Disneyland, and that new employee's are almost required to speak spanish to be in serious contention for a job.

I was wondering if all parks in the Southwest and Texas are like this. I just didn't think these people, who speak no english and work extrememly low paying jobs, could afford to take a day at Disneyland.

Is there anyone else out there who has visited the Disney park recently and knows what I am talking about? It was the most miserable experience and I hope I don't ever return.
It is Disneyland Mexico. I thought you knew that. Anything in CA is Mexico. That is why smart people got out of that hell hole.

Uhmm, so CISCO, INTEL, GOOGLE, BROCADE, etc. must be full of dumb people. I suspect that there might be a slight problem with your logic.

This is happening all over because our gutless politicians are afraid of loosing Latino votes. They hold on to their twisted idea of political correctness when the majority of Americans want English to be the national language. The way to hurt Disney is to aim at their profits and not buy tickets. When push comes to shove, money is the only language they really understand.

I'm way ok with that but this theme of Hispanicization in certain States will do nothing to keep States together. This is the US, an English speaking Country. Speaking more than one language is different than hiring workers that speak only Spanish to cater to tourist. I think that is completely backwards as a theme to build a strong Country.

The visitors were probably tourists.... have you thought about that you Einstein?

Would you speak in French if you travelled to the Disney park in Europe???

My best guess is that you would speak English while visiting Disney in Europe...

Geez.... the local Californians are probably hitting the waves... doing something else...

Disney is a worldwide attraction for overseas tourists... and many come from overseas (Spanish speaking countries)

Thanks to Disney we drain the tourists pockets... I can`t believe you wrote such thread.

I bet many of you don`t know the impact of Disneyland in our local economies.

For example...Orlando would be nothing without a Disney and many of the city`s theme parks that are visited by millions of overseas tourists.

Do you think that undocumented/illegal aliens have 94$ to visit Disneyland??? (they make peanuts)

I seriously doubt that many of you have a bachelors degree (that requires good reasoning/logic)

You know...if you had a little bit of more good reasoning, you would have probably enjoyed an excellent day at Disneyland with your family...but instead of doing such thing, you were wondering why the heck overseas tourists were not speaking in English

One married family man hit my wifes but????

Ohh my goddd.... listen pal... English/Italian/Portuguese/Chinese/ any speaker ...any male could hit a women`s butt by accident... ok?...and they also are polite to say "I am Sorry/Lo siento" I live in Miami,,,, I have seen many many tourists from U.S, Canada, Europe, the Americas, Asia, hitting the women butts by accident and some of them stare at women`s butts and they don`t care if they have their wifes standing by their sides... your comment was absurd....

Men are Men (no matter what language they speak)


And about the guy that works in the information desks!!!!!???....

It is very logical that he must learn Spanish and the fact that Disney required him to take second language classes is common sense!!

In every country overseas, the employees assigned to the information desks kiosks in tourist attractions have to speak a second or a third language!!!

You should travel to Europe and realize that the same info dude in the Disneyland over there speaks fluent French, Spanish, English, Italian, etc!!!

Ohh my god...how old are you????

There is a global phenomenon called globalization BTW....

"Globalization (globalisation) in its literal sense is the process of transformation of local or regional phenomena into global ones. It can be described as a process by which the people of the world are unified into a single society and function together.
This process is a combination of economic, technological, sociocultural and political forces.Globalization is often used to refer to economic globalization, that is, integration of national economies into the international economy through trade, foreign direct investment, capital flows, migration, and the spread of technology."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Globalization

You should Google it!!!

Due to this phenomenon many citizens worldwide have to learn second/third languages... I mean pal... if you don`t know about this basic stuff I seriously wonder how the heck your were even able to turn on your computer and go online (that requires some sort of intelligence)...

Ohh my god..when I read this kind of posts I am glad I am a teacher...

I know that I am actually educating people in real life so that they don`t become people without "good reasoning".

Have a good day..
