Park of the Week: Islands of Adventure

Cast and Team Members, We Want to Hear from You

July 27, 2020, 3:40 PM · Are you working in a theme park this summer? If so, Theme Park Insider would like to hear from you.

I would like to put our spotlight on front-line theme park employees during this most unusual year for the industry. So if you are a cast member, team member, ambassador, model citizen, or theme park company employee who is working in the parks - or who was scheduled to be working in the parks - this summer, please email me your story at

Your anonymity will be protected, as I will not include any names in the responses that I publish on Theme Park Insider. Nor will I reveal any identities to theme park managers, should I be asked. But I would like to bring our readers - theme park fans from around the world, many of whom cannot visit the parks right now - your stories about what working in the parks is like for you. Or your stories about adjusting to not being able to work in the parks.

Do you feel safe? Do you feel satisfied with your job at the moment? Would you rather be at home or at work? How are the guests? How have your managers and the company responded to the crisis?

What would you like to see changed in the parks to make things better? Which changes that have been made would you like to see continue, even when this crisis is over?

Most important, what would you most like the public to know about your experience this summer?

Again, please email me at and I will publish representative responses here on the site later this week or next.

Thank you for all you do, and best wishes.

I haven't been back yet, but will be going late next week to AK. I really look forward top seeing what the Cast member have to say about their experience. I'm not a CM, but I really appreciate all that they do. In some ways, I'm jealous. In other ways, I'm glad I'm retired. And Thank You, Robert... for this platform for us, and for the CMs.
