Who's ready to PARTY?
The Director of Fun

The Director of Fun is a minor character in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway. He is an employee at the Isla de Corales resort. He is often portrayed as oblivious and a nuisance.


The Director of Fun is a very hyper and crazy person who is mainly having fun with the other local community. He can mostly be seen happy.


The Director of Fun is seen as a skinny person who's constantly wearing a Hawaiian shirt, striped shorts, and sandals. He sports glasses and has dark curly hair and beard, and sometimes appears shaking a pair of maracas.


The Director of Fun first appears when Greg was trying to take a nap near the beach. He plays a large boombox, which annoys Greg. The latter then tries to ignore him, while the people around him started to join the Director in the fun. Unfortunately, the Director of Fun pulled in Greg to join in as well, and Greg submitted, though he said that he wasn't comfortable with, "all the touching."

Then, the Director of Fun disbands his conga line and pulls out a bucket of coins. He dumps them all into the swimming pool, and lines up all the children, including Greg, along its perimeter. The Director of Fun then blows his whistle, and all the kids go into a "free-for-all," where they try to get as many coins as possible. Eventually, Greg ended up with three dollars.

He appeared again much later in the book when Greg's family was resting, and they were trying to rest again, but the Director of Fun bothers them. He and his conga line circle around the family, unconsciously making Greg angry. But he then halted the conga line when he spotted something in Manny's bucket and screamed when he realized that it was a box jellyfish. He immediately reported it to the nearest lifeguard, and soon the pool was evacuated. The pool was then drained, making everyone infuriated at the Heffleys.
