(Attempting to add a decent, more serious and accurate definition to the lot.)

In the United States, the most common use of the word refers to people originating from East and Southeast Asia (China, Japan, South/North Korea, Vietnam, among others). Indians and Pakistanis might be referred to as South Asians, where as Filipinos and Samoans might be called Pacific Islanders.

In England, "asian" most commonly refers to people of Indian or Pakistani descent, whereas "oriental" might refer to East and Southeast Asians (NOTE: "oriental" is certainly considered politically incorrect in the United States).

1. At Disney theme parks, they are tickets issued that act as a placeholder in the line. The ticket is issued with a one-hour time frame (i.e. 2:30pm - 3:30pm) later in the same day, at which point the ticket holder may return and enter a shorter line and therefore not spend as much time waiting.

2. In the opinion of many attractions cast members, watching over Fastpass distribution is the single worst part of their job.
When they got their Fastpass at Space Mountain, they decided to go to "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience" in order to pass the time.

In Disney theme parks, this is the area where guests are not allowed, tucked away behind indescript doors and curtains. In reality, these areas are usually quite ugly, disgusting, and very unkempt. This is also where you see many a cast member doing what they normally are not allowed to do onstage: eat, drink, smoke, use the restroom, talk on their cell phones, talk about their personal lives, be unfriendly.
