Disney World is a magical place, created often by the Cast Members working to make guests happy during their vacation. Their tasks are very diverse with some being glamorous, and some not.
Cast Member Experiences:
The Cast Members that make the best employees for Disney are those that are interested in bringing smiles to the visitors at Disney. In the photo below, you see one Cast Member showing my son a variety of magic tricks, using a cotton ball. My son thought the experience was his favorite for the day! Imagine, a whole day at Disney World and your favorite experience is one had with a guy on Main Street with a cotton ball!
One other past experience with a Disney College Program Cast Member was had a few years ago. This Cast Member was working at the Haunted Mansion. He began his fun at the end of the Haunted Mansion moving loading platform. With one foot on the platform, he rested the remainder of his body on the adjoining wall between the Guest’s queue and the moving platform. He simply played “dead”. The majority of the guests did not even know he was in the room. As he got to the very end of the dividing wall, he slapped his hand against the wall and said “Got Ya” to the guest standing there. Of course, the Guest cried out and the onlookers had a great laugh at the scene!
After having one of the best experiences ever on the Jungle Cruise, I headed to Guest Services to fill out this Cast Member Appreciation Card. The form takes about a minute to fill out. The Cast Member is notified that they have received a good (or bad) response to their services. The Card helps the Cast Member get the notoriety for work well done and even can help them get promoted or receive a raise!
Next time you vacation at Disney and have a favorable experience with a Cast Member, be sure to head to Guest Services and fill out one of these cards. It is important to let people know when they do a good job and this will be your way of doing just that during your vacation!
