i have sung my praises of the staff in the closed park topic yesterday, but i'm only too happy to do so again.
everyone i met was friendly, approachable, and eager to help and start a conversation. even a roving photographer decided to start a conversation as we passed, without trying to take our photo!
mutiny bay felt much more atmospheric this year with the pirates, and sir Edward constantly visible, and interacting. and i absolutely loved sir Edwards driving around in his ship with the music blaring, it had me in fits of laughter as he high fived my nephew on the way past
and with all the weather problems that happened yesterday, the staff were organised and on the ball where possible (i appreciate that comms can be difficult when so much is happening at once) and never let the weather or the, frankly :censored: rude guests, get to them.
after the park shut we went back to the hotel to get a hot drink before we went home, and found that every member of staff able to help in any way, was doing everything possible to alleviate the situation. extra staff and all the entertainers had been brought over from the park. in fact after an hour and a half of enjoying our hot chocolate and entertainment that had been hurriedly put together (although it didn't seem like it), we had mostly forgotten about the fiasco in the park and had smiles on our faces again, which is great to have just before we left to go home.
once again well done AT your staff have done you proud.
