    WDW Budget cuts? Where are the Ostrich

    Where did the Ostrich go? I know there used to be 6 or 8 Ostich dancing in the Spectromagic parade. This last week there where 2.... Is it budget cuts or a redesign of costumes?

    That's not always due to budget cuts. From what I was told, there is a shortage of Cast Members, and sometimes they can't get enough performers for all the characters in the parades.

    Now that I think of it, There seemed to be many of the walking Characters missing. Must be the time of year when the college kids are returning to school and there is a shortage of cast members. I did see a lot of trainees.
