All the World's a Stage: Behind the Entertainment Scenes at Walt Disney World
Craft, Jerry R., Jr.
It would not be until my Disney orientation classes, called Traditions I and IT, that I would actually understand how this S.I.P. could be my capstone. There I learned that all of Disney was a stage. Whenever I, the cast member, would walk onto a guest area, I was on stage performing some kind of role. Whether that was acting out the role of a southern gentleman in front of a restaurant, or being a quick service host and pouring cokes all day, I was acting out a role on stage, and learning to communicate with people on a new level. The level I was working on was being the person who knew what was going on and could fix things for guests and cast members alike. While 'K' had taught me what to do in the theater, it had not really yet taught me how to communicate with the people making my designs a reality. Disney would teach me that, and much more. Things like being able to be the leader in . situations with people in my same position effectively and not domineeringly and dealing with situations on impulse were not things I did well before leaving. So while, yes, this S.I.P. fulfills the requirements for being my 'K' capstone, it also fulfills my own personal capstone requirements.
