7 Things You Didn’t Know About Disney!
#1. Say Hello to Utilidors
It’s true! Disney Cast Members can be found using the underground tunnel system to help them get where they’re going. It helps make Disney that much more magical for its guests. I mean, there has to be somewhere for the characters to relax without being seen my your obsessed with Minnie Mouse 3 year old.
#2. Cinderella’s Secret Room
If you’re Cinderella obsessed, then you may be excited to find that she has a secret suite in her castle. I hear it’s pretty well laid out and one word to describe this suite in her castle is luxurerious. Only very special people get to stay here.
#3. Not Just Anyone Can be a Cast Member
You may think that if you want to work at Disney, you can just go throw on a Mickey Mouse suit and be on your way. This isn’t the case. In fact, you have to go through some pretty intense training to even be able to put on a Character Costume.
#4. You Can’t Buy Gum at Disney
One thing I’ve noticed, while at Disney, is that it’s so clean. The reason these parks are so clean is that chewing gum is not sold here. Nothing is worse than getting gum stuck to your shoe. Walt Disney himself made up this rule and it still stands true today!
#5. There are Over 70,000 Employees at WDW
These numbers are almost mind blowing, but you may not know that Disney World is the largest employer in the world. They need tons of employees to operate, which means big numbers. You can expect almost 70,000 cast members to be working at WDW when you’re there. Those numbers are simply incredible.
#6. Disney is About Putting on a Show
When you enter Disney, you’re not just entering a theme park, you’re entering a show. Everything from the cast members to the food is a part of the show. You will find that the cast members live to help make your time at Disney as magical as possible.
#7. Work for Disney – Get in for Free
It’s safe to say that when you work for Disney, you’ll never have to worry about paying to get in. It’s also said that Disney is really great to their employees. It has to be worth it to work for Disney and be able to get in for free, doesn’t it?!
