After Disneyland opened, Walt always wanted to know how to make the experience better for his guests. So, oftentimes, he would dress up in normal everyday clothes and wander the park like a guest and even wait in lines for rides, striking up conversations with the other park goers. He asked what they liked or what they thought could be improved. He would also always carry a wad of $5 bills in his pocket and would slip a bill to an employee as a bonus whenever he saw them "plus-ing" the experience for others. Occasionally he would even work in the ice cream shop on Main Street.
Walt was all about “plus-ing” the experience for people. He always was trying to make things better and if he could make just once person smile, then he would consider his day a success.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
