During the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration – and always! – our cast members are at the heart of it all. From pixie-dusting vacation memories, to learning more about new offerings to provide the best guest experience, I can confirm that no one makes magic quite like a Disney cast member.

Speaking of learning more about new experiences, a select group of EPCOT cast members had the opportunity to be among the first to step inside the newest “other-world” showcase pavilion before it opens this summer as part of the transformation of EPCOT.

Just as Xandarians are interested in learning more about people of Earth (or, as they call us, Terrans) the EPCOT cast were excited to go behind the progress walls to begin their familiarization with this thrilling new pavilion, including the iconic Starblaster standing tall out front.

As cast members, we’re always learning – from our first day to leading an entire theme park! In that spirit, EPCOT Vice President Kartika Rodriguez joined her team for a tour exploring the new space.
