If you’ve been to Disneyland without paying…

Then you probably live in Orange County and know someone who works at Disneyland.

Last night Disney sponsored their annual Cast Blast event at the Disneyland Resort. I have to say I feel sorry for all of the Cast Members who got into the resort on their night off as they had to suffer through the agony that is California Adventure.

With five of the main attractions (and some I have spoken to say there are only five rides) open for four hours, lines were non-existent. On both California Screaming and Tower of Terror cast members would simply cycle through the cues and back on to the rides. Some of them did it four or five times. This is not any different from the normal operating hours; the only exception there is that it’s the guests who get back on the rides.

After getting all of the loose change in my pockets shaken out on Tower of Terror, the free cookie with the Cast Blast logo printed on, and the one free soda (the servers loosened up as the night progressed) the event was fun.

However, it was odd to walk down the Boardwalk and hear: “California, knows how to party” instead of the carnival ditty that routinely plays.

    I worked for 6 seasons at Paramount Canada’s Wonderland and we had evenings like this for the staff, freedom on the games and rides. One of those nights, we played a game called “Soak the Sup,” for ten cents we could throw a wet sponge at our “favourite” supervisor.
