Welcome to The Disney World Blog! My name is Bruce, and I am a former Cast Member of the Walt Disney World, Company. I held roles as Custodial host and Attractions host at The American Adventure in EPCOT’s World Showcase, as well as Ride Operator at Blizzard Beach. I also held a position as third shift custodial, working overnight in EPCOT.
I began employment with the Walt Disney World Company in September of 1999 on the Walt Disney World College Program, and spent Y2K working in EPCOT. But before the Y2K party, I was one of a select group to be on the Hurricane Floyd Ride-Out crew – stationed inside EPCOT during Floyd’s closest approach to Orlando/Lake Buena Vista. I got to “sleep” (as if we actually slept) with the fishies. 🙂
Overall, it was a tremendously awesome time, and to this day, even after almost 20 years of working other jobs, I rate the Walt Disney World Company as the absolute best employer, hands down. I regret ever leaving, to be honest.
So I have created The Walt Disney World Blog in the hopes of being able to share in some of the adventures I experienced while a Cast Member (well, in reality, for me anyway, once a Cast Member, always a Cast Member), as well as some helpful insight into the parks in an effort to help maximize your enjoyment while you are on vacation!
I thank you for visiting The Disney World Blog, and hope that you find it useful and enjoyable!
