Episode 38 – Cast Member Magic

Download the episode here or find us on iTunes, Stitcher, or Google Play!

Welcome to episode 38 of Castle Cast Radio! We are taking the show on the road this week! Excuse us for some interesting background sounds as we take you all on a little road trip with us. In this episode we talk about the latest rumblings in the world of Disney and the Disneyland theme park. As the name of this episode suggests, we talk at length about the special ways that Cast Members have touched our lives and made our visits to the parks extra special. We discuss the devastating news that over 28,000 cast members have been laid off. Cast Members are the heart and soul of the parks and our thoughts are with all of those whom were affected by this decision. Finally, we talk about memories and what we hope most to see and do in the parks when they reopen. So sit back, relax and enjoy this edition of Castle Cast!
