It’s officially the dog days of summer, but our cast members aren’t letting the heat stop them from continuing their wellness journeys. Since March, hundreds of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products cast members have been participating in the Be Well…Be You program, an exclusive reward program that encourages cast to focus on their physical and mental health with fun rewards and prizes for exercising, cooking a healthy meal, finding a moment of mindfulness and so much more.
As we quickly approach the end of the program, let’s check in to see how some of them are doing! At the Disneyland Resort, security cast member Andre Vo found a way to make his fitness fun a family affair. “We were ecstatic that the Disney Be Well Cast Member, Friends and Family 5k returned. We all got into the Muppets theme and had the little one join in on her first 5K. My wife and I can’t wait for the next fun run and to try to be more active.”
At Walt Disney World Resort, EPCOT cast member Marc St. John encourages everyone he works with to join the wellness fun by participating in walks across the resort, like making the 2.5-mile journey from Disney’s Contemporary Resort back to the Ticket and Transportation Center – with a stop for DOLE Whips along the way at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort – or traveling from the glitz and glamor of Disney’s Hollywood Studios to EPCOT’s International Gateway and back.
“The biggest challenge is always getting started,” Marc shared. “Find a group of people with similar interests and goals as you because it’s much easier to achieve wellness goals when you’re with friends.”
Check out the video below to see how more of our cast members are reaching their wellness goals with the help of some of our Muppet friends!
