Have you ever heard the phrase “we work while others play”? It’s sort of an unofficial cast member mantra, since #DisneyCastLife making magic 365 days a year admittedly means finding non-traditional, perhaps even unconventional ways to celebrate those special days on the calendar. But holidays do provide ample opportunities for our parks, resorts and experiences cast members to be part of our guests’ special celebrations and traditions, and that’s easy to find the joy and gratitude in.
Approaching the Thanksgiving holiday weekend here in the U.S., we asked cast members across the country what they’re grateful for this season. Their responses were big, small, sincere, and even a little silly.
From all of us, have a wonderful holiday! (A turkey leg makes a fine Thanksgiving main course—just saying.)
