I worked the Spectromagic parades at Magic Kingdom on Christmas (I was in costuming). Pretty much anyone who knew anything about how to deal with the electrical wiring, costumes, and the like bailed out on us that day. I was supposed to continue my training on that day but due to understaffing my training got cut short. It was hell on all of us, especially the way the character performers treated costumers who worked that parade. Not a pleasant thing to work understaffed.
