Did you know that Disney World Cast Members have their own private pool and beach area to relax at? Me neither until a few years ago. It’s called Mickey’s Retreat and sadly it was in the news last night. A male visitor at the pool was rescued from a near drowning.
Unfortunately there’s not much more in the news than that. Hopefully he’ll be okay.
Don’t go looking for Mickey’s Retreat at Walt Disney World, it’s actually located a few miles away near one of the outlet malls. But it does have a private beach, a large swimming pool, and other activities to enjoy. Here’s a video of a couple cast members having fun at the retreat, which gives you a pretty good idea of what the facility is like.
