Walt Disney World cast members interact with a ton of guests every year.

As many as 20.4 million people visited the park in 2016. Not all of cast members' interactions with guests are going to be positive and seamless.

Former Disney World cast member John Quagliano told Business Insider that most guests are perfectly nice to cast members.

"But at the same time a lot of people can be really testy," he said.

He added that he understood why some Disney visitors might be on edge at the park.

"People have just spent this much money to have this wonderful vacation and come to Florida, and then all of a sudden they get to the park and they realize, 'Whoa. My family and I maybe have to stand in line for 20 minutes.' Or, 'It's raining and now the ride's closed down,'" said Quagliano, who worked in the Magic Kingdom. "A water's $3. So they get thirsty and they say, 'I just spent four grand on a hotel, how is the water $3?'"
