They will typically have three options, 1) be deployed elsewhere 2) offered the day off w/pay 3) offered the day off w/o pay 2 will typically only happen if you can’t be deployed (ie a Hurricane) or if there’s no need

I'd imagine so yes. Most people there are cast members who work in the shops/restaurants or do general guest service so those are fairly easy to relocate. Lifeguards are another story, I'd assume some get realocated to resort pools, and any that are experienced in general CM duties get reassigned elsewhere.

Forgive me if this has been addressed before but what happens to the waterpark CMs during these cold weather closures? Do they get reassigned somewhere else for those shifts or what?

Due to forecasted low temperatures, Disney says Blizzard Beach will be closed January 13-15.

Right - see the quote.

That's due to the marathon.

Jeebus, it’s bad enough they are closing an entire park for the race. But they can’t even properly post that fact until less than two weeks before the date? The ineptitude just grows with every passing chance they have to demonstrate it.

The schedule on January 8th has been updated and now shows Blizzard Beach as being closed.

Somehow BB is still scheduled to open at 10am on January 8 even though all roads leading to it will be closed till 12/12:30 due to the marathon.

Thursday makes sense, given the forecast.

Hearing they will reopen Thursday.
