IAAPA: Other stuff

RideThroughTime didn’t say Executive Chairman, though, he said on the Board of Directors, of which Ouimet very much is a member.

I’m not sure a response of “you are totally wrong” to a completely accurate and factual statement … makes a ton of sense.

Cool cool. I was a little drunk when I posted, so thanks for filling in the details. Non-executive chairs have little to do with the day-to-day though, which I think you already know.

He’s chair of the churro cart committee.

On this Thanksgiving day, I'm thankful that I asked for clarification, as it made some pretty funny posts. even though my personal preference for funnel cakes over churros.

Fever I really enjoy the Simpsons. It's just a shame that I am starting to LOOK like Homer.

While like the Ouimet "Cart" story. My favorite of his was when he was the head of DCL and got the faithful call at 4:30am about a fire on the Disney Magic. He has a lot of quick little one line jokes in it (depending on who he's talking to) but it always ends with the same thing.

The lawyers sitting around a table asking the Captain, why he woke up all the guests and had them report to their muster stations if the fire wasn't "that big". Why did he frighten the 2700 passengers on board?

I have his one sentence answer framed and hanging on my wall in my office at work.

"There's a new generation of young professionals emerging that I am deeply hopeful can break through the old white guy-dominated barrier of industry leadership. The lack of diversity is kind of gross."

I'm glad you brought this up, Jeff. Sincerely, a fellow minority theme park enthusiast.

So he did move the churro cart?
