Disney Cast Members Take Part In Rubber Duckie Races!

Yes, you read that right, Rubber Duckie Races! Disneyland Resort cast members were celebrated in a week of festivities for Disneyland’s anniversary. This past week, cast members enjoyed free food, attraction experiences, after-hours celebrations in the parks, photo opportunities, giveaways and yep – Duck Races!

As shared by Disney: “As one of the most beloved cast-exclusive events, cast members were ecstatic about the return of Duck Races this year. Cast members purchased and decorated $5 rubber ducks (all proceeds benefit Goodwill of Orange County) and raced them through “it’s a small world” before the park opened to guests. After the ducks set off on the happiest cruise that ever sailed, cast members eagerly waited outside the attraction to see which duck would return first from their trip around the world. Shouts of excitement were heard as the duck that took the lead sailed out of the attraction, decorated by Ruth from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.”

Can you imagine what a fun time it would be to experience this as a cast member? Sure it’s something simple and small, but it’s a memory you know they’ll share with their families for years to come. Not many get to say they raced rubber duckies around “it’s a small world”! We especially love that the proceeds from the rubber duck sales benefited Goodwill of Orange County. Way to go Cast Members! Thanks for ALL you do!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
