When you think of swimming at the Disney Parks, the thought of plopping into a pool at Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach at Walt Disney World Resort would typically be what comes to mind. But seeing a Cast Member dive into the Venetian Gondolas canals at Tokyo DisneySea would probably not be the first thing that comes to mind.

When it comes to having water around at the Disney Parks, there is always a chance that a Cast Member will have to enter that water if ever needed. We tend to see this happen the most with water attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean or “it’s a small world” when the ride breaks down, and Guests must be evacuated. But at times, Cast Members may have to take a swim to retrieve a missing item.

vickiekei (@scholastica911) recently posted a video of a Cast Member swimming in the Venetian Gondolas canals at Tokyo DisneySea Resort. It seems that an oar fell into the water, and a Cast Member went to get it. We can see that the Cast Member is gripping onto a life preserver ring while dragging the oar behind them. We can see that the Cast Member went into the water in full costume, even with their hat dragging behind them as they bopped to land.

When translating the Tweet, it seems the user noted:

Cast falls. seems cold. Help me quickly.

Luckily, the Cast Member was close to the edge of the dock, and with the life preserver, was able to stay afloat. Cast Members who enter water areas such as this are always trained to do so when going in with a purpose, as it seems this Cast Member did, to ensure their safety.
