Aiming to bring about a sense of community spirit and encourage people to live life to the fullest, Disney cast members such as the likes of Buzz Lightyear, Donald Duck and Cinderella will be trained in the company’s exemplary guest experience services to ensure the smooth running of facilities – weird.
