Cast Members can often save your Disney World trip with an extra glimmer of magic when you’re having a less-than-stellar day.
But, handing out free cotton candy or Mickey Premium Bars aren’t the only ways that they’re saving the day. Cast Members do a lot behind the scenes both on the job and beyond that makes an impact on others’ lives and one EPCOT Security Cast Member was recently recognized for doing just that!
The President of Walt Disney World Resort, Jeff Vahle, recently posted to his Instagram account sharing that Joe Diaz (an EPCOT security Cast Member) was awarded the Disney Heroes Award.
What exactly qualifies someone for the award? Well, it is given to Cast Members who save a life or prevent serious injury and Joe Diaz did this last year when he jumped into a partially flooded car to help keep a four-year-old’s head above water who was stuck in the car until emergency support could get to the scene.
Definitely, worth some recognition, we’d say! Stay tuned to DFB, because we’ll keep bringing you the latest Disney news.
