5. Preshow crowd control for Illuminations
As the sun begins to set over Disney’s Epcot, cast members prepare a grand setup in near the World Showcase Lagoon. These magic makers ready their lightwands to guide guests into the fastpass section for “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.” As cast members working safety ropes, they get the best view of this spectacular fireworks show. They get to experience the closest view of the globe, dancing fountains, and surprise fireworks. Thirty minutes prior to the show, festive music from a variety of countries will boom from the speakers. In one instance, a cast member was reported to dance to this entire track until the show started.
