    I took a backstage tour and they told us that answer. The only thing was that they told us ALL parks together first and I think it was around 55,000. Then they told us just WDW and I think it was around 20,000. But don't hold me to that.

    Anyone know the answer and can confirm or deny mine???

    I might have another source I can check into for you. How soon do you need to know?

    Sorry, my source would not be able to get back to me in time.

    Good luck! Let us know how you do.

    Boy, I was way off if 120,000 is right. I must have been sleeping when they told us...it was very early in the morning.

    The answer is 0! People who work at WDW, and other Disney parks, are Cast Members (CMs). Depending on the season between 51,000 and 55,000 CMs call WDW home. Currently the Disney Co. has about 129,000 employees, including CMs.

    I love what they say in training about dating each other for disney CMs, they say that most people in central florida are disney cast members, so if you don't date a fellow CM, who would you date?

    That's one of the most amusing things I've ever heard.
