  • Collecting Stories from Cast Members!

    Hello all!

    I am compiling a book of Cast Member anecdotes from all worldwide theme parks (and any other area appropriate, such as cruise lines).

    The prompt is 'What is the weirdest thing you've experienced a Guest saying or doing whilst working at a Disney park?' I'm looking for entertaining stories centered around Guests that are bizarre, funny, stupid, inappropriate, etc. (Heartwarming, magic-making stories are wonderful but the goal here.)

    All anecdotes will be anonymously credited, although I intend to include general details of where you work(ed) and a rough time frame (i.e. New Orleans/Critter Country Attractions, Disneyland Resort - Anaheim, CA, 2012-2015.)

    All anecdotes will also be written in a magic-friendly format. I will not be divulging backstage secrets or degrading the brand of Disney in any way. This is a book about the Guests intended to delight and entertain (and perhaps give an insight into what Cast Members deal with on a day-to-day basis that can better inform how one acts as a Guest themselves.)

    If you have an anecdote you wish to contribute, I would very much appreciate it!

    Please email [email protected] and include the following:
    • Your story
      • Don't worry about the format, as it may ultimately be edited/paraphrased anyway
      • Stories of any length are appreciated, from a single sentence to several paragraphs
    • Where you worked (i.e. theme park/cruise ship, etc.)
    • Which department(s) you worked (i.e. Entertainment, Attractions, Photopass, and any applicable specific lands)
    • Which years you worked for Disney (i.e. 2012-2015 or 2018-Present)
    Many thanks!

    Do contributors get a portion of proceeds from the book?
    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.

              Is it okay if someone you know was a CM?
