Walt Disney World Cast Members Help to ‘Lighten Up’ Energy Use
In an effort to embed environmental conservancy into the everyday actions of Walt Disney World cast members & guests, Disney has put a spotlight on managing energy resources effectively, minimizing waste, and conserving water. Through a series of science-based programs & policies, Disney cast members participate to potentially conserve enough electricity to power more than 1,000 homes for a year.
By replacing over 1,000 theatrical spotlights and floodlights across the WDW Resort with longer-lasting bulbs, including LED lights in some fixtures, popular attractions like Rock n’ Roller Coaster, Living with the Land, and the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh will help Disney conserve in a significant way. LED (light emitting diode) lights have the potential to be 330% more efficient than traditional bulbs.
Walt Disney World’s Public Affairs & Media Relations department claims that “engineers estimate this one small change will save more than 2.5 million kilowatt hours annually, which is enough to power to light 1135 homes for a year.”
