  • What Happens to CMs when their Attraction Gets Refurbed?

    I just was thinking that it's cool that POTC is getting some attention, but then I wondered what happens to the CMs who regularly work that (or any other attraction) when their attraction is not running? Do they get to pick where they go in the meantime, or are they stuck somewhere else? If you're part-time, does that mean there is no work for you?

    They are moved to other Attractions. POTC CMs were moved to the River, Pooh, Mansion, and Splash. While Thunder was down this weekend, those CMs were used at Indy and Jungle.
    Tourists. Why'd it have to be tourists?

      Sometimes they get new electronic gear, or their innards get cleaned of the moldy gunk that builds up. Some are replaced completely with the next generation of cast member. The first loader is generally acknowledged as the more sophisticated model of cast member to come out of Imagineering.

        Are they already cross trained, or do they make time to train them. I'm thinking of the technical positions, like ride operator, etc.

          Ahh-ha!!! I THOUGHT something like that might be going on, but now there is confirmation! Does anyone know how to reach Anderson Cooper?

            (He was made in Imagineering, too. He's with Them.)

                  Most of the Regular CMs (like those that have been there over 6 months) know 2 attractions so they have a place to go as a back up. However, they can also be cross trained if their attraction goes for rehab. One of my friends who works Pirates got crossed to Splash, another crossed to mansion.

                    That's cool, thanks. Do you get to work the same hours/days or does that get messed up?

                        I just thought they went into suspended animation (animation, get it? I kill myself sometimes...) or hiberation. Maybe they are frozen, like, like...

                        oh, who is that guy rumored to be frozen? I can't remember.

                        Peace,

                          Here it comes...another back in the day story...I'll keep it short...

                          During my time in New Orleans Main Kitchen, we'd go down for rehab at the same time as the annual "normal" rehab for Pirates/Blue Bayou. During that time, we were shifted to the old Plaza Pavillion Kitchen (since the Pavillion, and Tahitian Terrace and I believe even the Juice Bar were only open during peak seasons then).

                          So we prepared food for the French Market and Cafe Orleans and loaded it onto pickup trucks for delivery to those restaurants via back roads.

                          See, that was short. At least for me.

                            My best friend who works Pirates was moved to Splash Mountain and Fantasmic crowd control when it went down for the big refurb. Lucky guy gets to work the new ride!
