Working Glow Carts at Downtown Disney


Star Wars light sabers glowing in the night.

I get to work Glow Carts when I’m working Carts and Strollers in the evening. It’s basically a push cart that we bring out at night, and we sell character spinners of Buzz, Mickey, Tinkerbelle, etc., and also these cool Star Wars wands and swords which are LED bright and look so awesome at night.

Buzz Lightyear spinners.

Buzz Lightyear spinners, $15.

The character spinners are $15 and the swords are $12. And, every kid wants one! You’d think that a small cart that basically sells water, hats, toys, and iPhone cases wouldn’t make a lot of money, but at night when the Glow Cart is out, I see $100 bills a lot! I mean if you buy just three spinners, you’ve already spent $45 dollars. I like it because when it’s just beginning to get dark, I go around and turn everything on. We also have light-up Mickey ears and necklaces, but the swords are the top seller. I stand there and just play with a spinner while wearing a LED necklace or two and its fun!

At the bridge cart, we’re right next to this fancy Italian restaurant that has live music in a big courtyard. They have live music on most nights and, on the weekends, they have an excellent guitar player that plays current hits on his guitar; he’s so good. Working Glow Carts at night is super fun (but a real torture during the day!). The nights are balmy, no rain, no blazing hot sun. It’s all lively, awesome music, cool glow toys, and everyone’s happy and having a great time enjoying themselves.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
