Based on comments from our guests, a designated area for disabled guests was created along the parade route for the 2013 season. This area is on the east side (Big Bird Rambling River side) of the parade route, adjacent to the Boy’s River Restroom. This area is to provide an area for mobility impaired individuals and their families to view the parade. Of course, those with a mobility impairment may also choose any other location along the parade route as well.

Are you excited for the opening of a new season at Sesame Place? The employees here are so excited and they are getting ready to open the park for another great season!
Part of my job as the HR Representative is to make sure we hire employees who will do whatever they can to make your day here special! The hiring process at Sesame Place is heating up so here is some information about our application process.
I don't know about anyone else, but spring fever has already set in over here! Who else is excited for warmer weather, longer days, and of course, water slides?! Here at Sesame Place we are gearing up for another great season, but in the meantime, don't forget to check out our off season celebrations! Your favorite furry friends will be happy to see you and I'm sure they will keep you warm while we're waiting for the weather to do the same!
That's right! Even more dogs came to Sesame Place this week as part of the United Way Campaign.
Woof Woof Woof!
This week Sesame Place employees were able to bring their favorite four legged friends to work! That’s right we had an employee dog day here in the offices of Sesame Place. Employees were able to bring their dogs to the office in exchange for making a donation to the United Way. This is the first time that Sesame Place is ever having a “Bring your Dog to work day.” Sesame Place is also the first theme park in SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment to have this event.

September is National Preparedness Month!
…with that in mind here are some ideas and links to help you and your family start off the school year prepared, safe and healthy!
Sesame Street helps kids and families plan for emergencies through Let’s Get Ready! Check out these great videos to help start a conversation in your family about emergency preparedness: http://www.sesamestreet.org/parents/topicsandactivities/toolkits/ready
The first Sesame Place Team Member event of the 2012 season was a rousing success! Dine With Me was packed with 142 employees looking forward to playing some BINGO. Employees from every department showed up ready to play; from Operations to Merchandise, Culinary to GR, and everybody in between. With Entertainment’s own PJ Schweizer calling the numbers, the tables were set for an electrifying night.
As the weather warms up and we begin to spend more time outdoors it is very important to protect ourselves against mosquito, tick, and flea bites as they have the potential to make us sick. How can you protect you and your family against these biting bugs you might ask... by using appropriate insect and tick repellant (preferably containing at least 20% DEET) and applying as directed.
If you are a season pass holder, or just a first time guest, you will notice that Sesame Place is made up of families. We have the families that are here visiting for the day or our employees that are related in the different departments. One of the families I would like to point out to you is the Longnecker family from Canada.
Sun Safety for Skin and Eyes!
As you prepare for your visit to the park this season be sure to plan ways to protect yourself and your children from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. Over exposure to UV rays from the sun can result in sunburn and can lead to more serious health problems including skin cancer and eye damage.
