Above and Beyond

Cory Freed, Mechanic


Cory was working with the paving crew in the parking lot at Disney’s Epcot Park. He was scheduled as the nighttime mechanic on call. Around midnight, the crew’s foreman saw a car stranded in the parking lot. The car belonged to a family vacationing from Columbia. S.C. At that moment Cory was working on one of the rollers, nonetheless, he offered to help the family. He discovered that the family’s car had a dead battery. He then used his work-truck to jump their car. Cory’s selfless action gave the family one last bit of Disney magic by getting their car functioning again before their departure.
