Cast Members working at Walt Disney World Resort are more than just the frontline employees of Mickey Mouse’s vast empire, they’re also total vacation heroes. Sometimes, real-life heroes, too!
It’s True, Cast Members Can Be Real-Life Heroes!
Think about it: Cast Members do everything in their power to make sure things are above and beyond, and when something goes wrong, they do everything they can to make it right again.
Sometimes, Cast Members help guests reunite with lost things. In more extreme cases, they can help reunite lost members of a party.
In other cases, Cast Members can assist when someone is experiencing an injury or an ailment, pointing out the first aid center and offering certain products, such as over-the-counter medicines and bandaids.
In the most dire cases, Disney World Cast Members can even help save lives by keeping a level head and calling 911.
But in one case, Mickey’s frontline workers went above and beyond to save the day for one little girl who almost lost the Disney magic.
One Group of Cast Members Went Above and Beyond For a Family Visiting Walt Disney World
An anonymous guest recently visited Walt Disney World’s EPCOT with their family, and upon entering the park, their daughter was stung by a bee! While panic ensued, nearby Cast Members stepped in and saved the day. They posted the entire story onto social media, writing:
My family visited Disney recently and cast members at Epcot saved our vacation. My child was stung by something (left the stinger behind, which I pulled out immediately) at the gate – I didn’t see it happen, I was working on getting through the gate. One second everything was fine and the next she was [in] pain screaming at the top of her lungs.[Cast Members] ran over immediately and brought her ice, a toy to hold, a wheelchair and umbrella for shade. Her finger was very very swollen. The cast members helped us call emergency services who said she was okay and it would just be painful and she didn’t need to go to the Emergency Room.
A cast member, a supervisor maybe, helped the rest of my family make it to a character breakfast and also made sure my daughter could go too even though we arrived well after the reservation. The help they provided saved my vacation and helped my daughter have a great day at the parks after such a rough start.
Despite being stung by a bee, which, let’s face it, is one of the worst case scenarios for a little one, she was still able to have an amazing day at EPCOT, all thanks to the Cast Members’ quick thinking!
Cast Members working at Walt Disney World have a tougher job than any of us realize, so be sure to be extra nice to the employees who assist you the next time you’re visiting!
