We’ve seen time and time again that our cast members come together to support those in need, and this week was no different as they continued to create magic across Walt Disney World Resort as we felt the impact of Hurricane Ian.
Ahead of the storm, cast worked together to ready the theme parks and other locations across the resort – from securing outdoor areas, to packing thousands of meal kits for guests staying in our resort hotels and everything in between.
While the storm made its way across Orlando, cast members continued to be there for each other and our guests, keeping spirits high around resorts with special character greetings, movie screenings and recreational activities for everyone. We loved seeing so many of you sharing these experiences with us on social and recognizing cast through #CastCompliments.
Now that we’ve officially reopened, it’s been so sweet seeing smiles inside our theme parks once again. What makes it even more special is knowing how hard teams worked to clear debris and prepare the parks so we could start spreading some much-needed pixie dust as quickly as possible.
To the hurricane prep & ride out cast and crew members: thank you. We often say that you’re the magic of Walt Disney World Resort, and that statement proved true once again. To our extended Disney family experiencing the effects of Hurricane Ian: we are thinking of you, standing with you and will continue supporting you as we move forward, together.
