10 Inscrutable Requirements For Being A Walt Disney World Character Cast Member

One of the ways Disney keeps the Magic alive in the theme parks is by ensuring continuity across many different people playing the role of the same Disney character. One thing that must be consistent from person to person is the look of the character’s autograph. No matter how many times you meet Mickey, he’s got to sign your autograph book the same exact way.

Because of this, new Cast Members spend quite a bit of time learning the autograph and perfecting it.
