Cast Members Win Chance to Check Out Some Backstage Magic at Disneyland
We got an awesome cast member story to share with you out of Disneyland! Four cast members won a unique chance to go behind-the-scenes for a tour of Boudin Bakery at Disney California Adventure park.
This special unique opportunity was made possible by Magic Backstage, an exclusive sweepstakes program where cast members can enter and be randomly selected to win exclusive tours like the one in addition to hotel stays and theme park tickets.

“Winning Magic Backstage feels like winning the lottery,” said Irma McGroarty, who works at the Disneyland park main entrance. “I feel incredibly lucky to have participated in such an amazing opportunity.”
During their visits, cast members had a chance to learn some tricks-of-the-trade from bakers Juan Mendoza, Ricardo Garcia and Laurel Ehrichs. They also learned about the roots of sourdough in San Francisco and the entire process of creating the delectable bread that Boudin is known for. Winners even had the unique opportunity to make their own sourdough creations to take home!
“It was really special to work side by side with Juan, Ricardo and Laurel and see the passion, care and love that goes into creating the product,” shared tour participant Emilee Hess, senior Food & Beverage Guest Experience manager at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. “This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I loved having a unique one-on-one experience with my fellow cast members.”
