Walt Disney World President Josh D’Amaro Shares Park Visit on Instagram
Though things have been relatively quiet since Disney World closed its gates last month, Walt Disney World President Josh D’Amaro broke the silence and has taken to Instagram over the weekend to share some details of his visit the theme parks.
Despite a majority of employees being furloughed and no word yet on when the park might re-open, it’s somewhat comforting to see that things continue to tick along at Walt Disney World Resort even if it’s at a much slower and quieter pace than usual. Yesterday we shared images with you of D’Amaro visiting Epcot and today we have a snippet from his visit to the Magic Kingdom.

I made a quick visit to #MagicKingdom to thank a small group of Cast Members who are still taking care of the magic. I love seeing so many of our team wearing messages of courage and optimism on their nametags…until the day we welcome all of our Cast and Guests back to this special place. #DisneyCastLife #WaltDisneyWorld #MagicHasAName
As you can see from the image above, D’Amaro paid a visit to the theme park to check in with a handful of the Cast Members that are keeping an eye on things while the park is on hiatus. During the shutdown, some employees were considered essential including security guards, custodial staff etc.
Next, he shared a look at the Cast Member badges which those currently working at the parks have changed to add simple words of encouragement. We love this simple message of hope and the reassurance that everything will be alright!
As of going to print, most of Walt Disney World’s 77,000 cast members are currently on furlough until there is some indication of when Florida’s theme parks will re-open. We here at MickeyBlog continue to monitor the situation at Walt Disney World and Disneyland parks closely and promise to keep you up-to-date. So keep following along!
