People often ask me how it is that the Disneyland Resort is in tip-top shape when the first guests begin to come through the front gates in the morning. Well, when the sun goes down and the last guest exits our parks, magic happens.
We’ve introduced you to some of our “third shift” magic makers in the past, including scuba divers and horticulturists. Today, our hats go off to all 1,400 cast members who maintain the Resort while most of us are asleep. Last night, at an annual celebration breakfast – or lunch or dinner, depending on how you look at it – Disney leaders thanked and acknowledged the cast during a TRON-themed event at the Disneyland Hotel.
To truly get a feel for the varied work they do, here’s a sample of the roles played by “third shift” cast members: engineer, mechanic, custodian, painter, designer, arborist – and the list goes on. Their talents allow you to fully enjoy each visit to the Disneyland Resort.
