Tea Cups Full of Rain

Tea Cups After the Rain
"YOU GONNA POST THOSE?" wondered a Disneyland "cast member" assigned to re-starting the Mad Tea Party attraction after this weekend's rain.

Yes sir, I think I might.

Now, back to your mopping!

Explains Wikipedia, the 1955 attraction is "unable to run in the rain, once the turntables are saturated with a moderate amount of water they slip and can no longer spin."

Explained another cast member to the disappointed father of two-year-olds: "It'll be about an hour before the tires dry."

I often get "approached" while taking atypical photographs on Disney property. Part of their training?

yes. the park cannot be showed in poor light, even if that means naturally occurring bad weather.
