Cast Members are the life blood of the experience at Walt Disney World, ensuring guests have a magical time. On average over 50,000 people a day enter the Magic Kingdom including a number of strollers. While maintaining order for all those guests that are visiting it requires a sense of order, and the cast members work hard to contain that, including moving strollers to that were parked ‘illegally’ to the appropriate stroller parking area.
Recently a Guest visiting the Magic Kingdom became irate when a Fantasyland Cast Member moved her stroller while it was unattended. The incident was captured on video via @maddieisraddie on TikTok below, but unfortunately, this kind of behavior from Guests is nothing new for Cast Members working in stroller parking.
So I get that strollers are expensive, and the items contained in them can be almost priceless – but at no time does someone deserved to be addressed like this. This cast member keeps his cool way longer than I believe I would. The woman was more interested in filming and creating a scene than admitting she was in the wrong.
For those wondering, when you enter into Disney Property you agree to their rules. Their rules regarding strollers state this from the official Disney website:
- Do not leave personal belongings in an unattended stroller.
- Strollers may be moved by a Cast Member due to operational needs.
Seems simple enough, don’t leave your valuables in a stroller as you go to an attraction, and guess what if your stroller is in the way, Cast Members might move it.
If anyone knows the Cast Member in the video above, let me know. I’d like to Venmo him cash for a beer, or maybe a relaxing massage. Seriously folks, if you know who this is, post in the comments below.
That’s not all – please remember as you visit Disney World right now, to thank Cast Members. They are on the front lines of inhumanity trying to make your vacation magical. In fact there are a number of ways you can help a cast member in return for service above and beyond. I’d encourage you to plan and check our our article on How to Thank A Cast Member.
Maybe I’m getting old, and just don’t see the point in the video above. Be kind to one another, and voice your feelings when they are hurt. Just don’t forget to take responsibility for your own actions when you’re in the wrong. That’s enough for being on the soap box for one day.
