Stepping into the Ontario warehouse is like walking into a small town with rows of shelves towering above like tall buildings. The sounds of beeping horns fill the air, as Cast Members use this "language" to signal their movements. The warehousing process runs so efficiently, it seems choreographed, which is essential since the Ontario warehouse team sends full truckloads to the resort three to six times daily. This 285,000 square-foot warehouse also supports Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, and Disney Cruise Line on the West Coast.
In addition to the merchandise items and operational supplies stored, the warehouse also hosts items that might seem unconventional. Hundreds of attraction tooling and mold materials are stored here, in the event that they are needed for future reference.
The 48 Cast Members who work at the Ontario warehouse take great pride in what they do, agreeing that a devotion to teamwork leads to their team's success.
Located some 30 miles from the Disneyland Resort, as soon as a product is sold in the Disneyland Resort, the replenishment process is triggered, notifying the team on when and which items need to be shipped to Anahiem.
The Distribution Services Cast Members load those items onto trailers and deliver the shipments to Building 100 at the Disneyland Resort.
Next, a team prepares to distribute the items throughout the Disneyland Resort. Scanners linked to a database system tell cast Members what items should be "picked" and where the should go. Teams gather these items by filling red totes and loading them onto a conveyor belt system. The technology is so precise that the system knows exactly how many units will fill one tote and how much it should weight when full, leading to greater efficiency and accuracy. Once items arrive at their ultimate destination, Cast Members prepare the items-the stage where the products ultimalely make their way to the Guest.
