Dreams Really Do Come True

, , , | Hopeless | June 10, 2016

(After several months of planning and saving, my husband, myself, and two of our best friends have arrived at the Walt Disney World resort. It’s their first times there, and my first time returning in ten years, due to my father developing cancer, and eventually passing away from it. I’ve made custom t-shirts for myself and my hubby, with our personal characters hand-painted on the front. As we’re heading to the register to buy our picture for Splash Mountain, we are complimented on our shirts by the older Cast Member running it. Upon explaining why I made them, as celebration for finally getting to come back again, she smiles.)

Cast Member: “Today, I’m going to do a little something that we call ‘Disney Magic.’ Your picture print is on the house, and I’ll also throw in the digital high quality, too.”

Me: *in tears* “Are you serious?!”

Cast Member: “Yes. Since it’s your first time back in ten years, today should be EXTRA special for you!”

(The cost of what she gave us was over $20. We left Splash Mountain with me crying from happiness. Throughout the day, Cast Members from every area we went to gushed over and complimented our shirts, one giving us customized pins to wear, and another giving us a free cinnamon roll from Gaston’s Tavern. All in all, those wonderful people made a very special day even more amazing, and I will never forget it. I tear up every time I remember their kindness, and how happy they were to go above and beyond expectations.)
