While most guests are asleep, third shift cast members are preparing the Disneyland Resort for the next day. On Aug. 15, these dedicated cast members were recognized during the Third Shift Celebration, an annual event that included after-hours access to Pixar Pier and the Incredicoaster at Disney California Adventure park, food at new locations such as Angry Dogs, photo and character opportunities with Disney·Pixar favorites and giveaways.
Disneyland Resort President Josh D’Amaro hosted the event with resort executives. Lala Lewis, a third-shift custodial cast member, said, “It’s very good to feel appreciated on third shift. We make the magic happen at night.”
