I ran across this image in a 1972 Destination Walt Disney World Employee Manual. It’s a great reminder at this time of year.
Accept People As They Are
Our ultimate goal at Walt Disney World is the creation of happiness for others. Were not reformers . . . remakers of the complex human element. We give everyone the same VIP treatment regardless of race, creed. color, politics or color of sport shirt.
We ask that you leave your prejudices at home before you come to work. Within Walt Disney World, you must accept people as they are…not as you might prefer them to be.
We must constantly remind each guest that were glad that he or she is here—with us—as our guest…that he or she belongs in Walt Disney World.
