No gum on the ground. No muddy footprints, even after rain. We notice that the trashcans gleam in their own freshly-Windexed splendor.I turn to The Husband—it is obvious from the look on his face that he is thinking the same exact thing I am.
He exclaims, “We could move here! We could work at Disney World and everything will be clean and shiny forever!”Actually, I was thinking of getting the name and phone number for their cleaning service, but his idea might be a lot easier.
Walking around Disney makes us want to be neater and cleaner, too. We see someone drop their receipt on the ground, and instead of handing it back to them or stopping to examine it and try to memorize their credit card number like I might normally do, I throw it in the trashcan. When my younger son “accidentally” kicks mulch onto the sidewalk, we make him put it back in a neatly patterned formation, the way God and Disney intended. When I feel beads of sweat threaten to drip down my face from the nuclear-melting powers of the Florida sun, I reach to wipe them off with a tissue before they can get on anything, anything that might make Disney World less than perfect.Because that is what Disney is, right? Perfect? The workers are friendly to a fault, and just when we think it is all fiction, one of them will say that he is also from San Diego and where did I go to high school, or another will say that her oldest son is also named Tall. These people want to be our friends, and I suddenly feel compelled to invite them over for dinner next week.
But that would require cleaning the house …
