Worker’s Comp, Worker’s Comp

A Disney World cast member working the Tomorrowland Speedway at the Magic Kingdom suffered a broken leg in an incident Sunday afternoon. Apparently the employee was struck by a guest in one of the attraction’s themed cars. The cars only travel 7 mph at max speed, but that’s still pretty speedy and they’re not exactly light either with a full gas engine in the back.

I hope the cast member’s okay, all things considered. They now have the fun of navigating the worker’s compensation system and something Disney calls “low impact” work. (Usually in an office backstage doing something like sorting out all the mylar confetti from the paper confetti so it can be reused – don’t laugh, this happened at Disneyland to multiple people I know.)

  1. Back when I worked at ANOTHER Central Florida theme park (which was more years ago than I care to count). People who needed “low-impact work” were assigned to sit in the back of the carnival games area and sew up holes in the stuffed animals that were given away as prizes. Fun, fun.

    I have to admit, though, that there were days when I got so tired of dealing with the general public that I prayed for this assignment.
