There are over 65,000 employees at the Walt Disney World Resort in central Florida. Some of them have behind-the-scenes roles. Some carry out their roles inside offices behind closed doors. Others operate rides and give directions to Guests. Still others play the roles of characters in the parks, and some serve in a Guest Relations capacity and seek to solve issues and problems that may arise with MagicBands, tickets and other items related to the parks. No matter what their role, an employee at Disney World is referred to as a Cast Member, and their number one job is to provide stellar customer service to Guests who visit Disney World. But while their job is to help Guests and ensure they are having fun, Cast Members also have to be sure that Guests are following safety precautions, being respectful to other parkgoers and following general rules. And believe it or not, some Guests don’t always use their best judgment in the parks, which can be annoying—not only to other Guests, but to Cast Members as well. Here are the top 10 things Guests do that annoy Cast Members (and some of them might get a Guest removed from the park.)
About Rebekah Tyndall Burkett
Rebekah grew up in Forney, Texas and lives just outside of Dallas. She’s been a Disney superfan since childhood, experiencing the magic at Walt Disney World for the first time at the age of 11. Journeys to Neverland are at least a yearly occurrence for her, her husband and her four children (the Fab Four). When they go to the parks, they stay in Florida for three weeks at a time. Rebekah loves exploring the history of the parks, the genius behind the Magic in the person of Walt Disney, and she is intrigued by all things Disney World and Disney Imagineering. When in the parks, Rebekah and her husband Scott make the most of their time by enjoying every minute with their Fab Four, by delving deeper into Walt’s vision for the parks and into the history behind the Walt Disney World Resort, and by photographing the many different types of architecture at Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and on the World Showcase at EPCOT. When she’s not in the parks, Rebekah is excitedly setting travel dates and planning her family’s next adventure to their happy place deep within the Sunshine State. On breaks from planning her next trip, Rebekah is a writer, journalist and children’s author, penning children’s books about kids with special needs that she affectionately calls “believement-achievement” stories. Her hobbies include creative writing, paper crafting and interviewing Imagineers. She is also an advocate for Autism Awareness and for children with developmental disabilities of all kinds.
