Have you ever noticed how much fun the Walt Disney World cast members appear to be having?  It is said that if you work for Disney, every role is a starring role, with cast members ensuring that guests have an enjoyable experience.  But sometimes it appears that cast members are having just as much, or more fun than the guests!

If you were to speak with cast members and ask them what their favorite thing was about being a Disney World cast member, here’s what they might say.




















“I don’t try.  I do.  And I do it with a cool light saber.”














“I meet interesting people who have chosen unique career paths.”














“I fly like a bird and encourage people to feel the love tonight.”


















“I get to work AND play on the drum all day.”














“I have the opportunity to get in touch with my inner Princess.”


Looking for Magic is Kathy @ Two Roads Photo[K1]  and Sean @ Shamrock Photo[K2] .  Kathy is a librarian, walker of many miles, and Paper Bag Princess, who dreams of having coffee with Belle at the castle and co-administering a fantasy book discussion group.  Sean is a fire fighter, pilot, and closet superhero, who would like to join the pack with Tigger to use his bouncy and fun powers to make people smile.

    My first role at Disney World was as a Housekeeper. It was not as fun as this blog post makes the other roles appear to be, and I was TERRIBLE at my job, but it was extremely rewarding. That, I think, is what most Cast Members would say about their jobs. Not every role is as fun as being a performer, but everything we do is for the guest, and seeing them smile when we’ve done it well makes it all worth the effort.

    I always wondered about working for WDW. My concern would be that the magic might be lost seeing behind the scenes.

    Later on.

    My son was an intern in the CP 04 class.He worked at Pinnochio Village and loved seeing the excited kids. His favorite part was their smiles especially if he could be the one to make it appear! Dis_Nolan passed away in August 2012 but I know he cherished his time as a cast member. He was so proud of being a part of WDW. Seeing behind the scenes and in the tunnels never ruined the magic for him.
