Everyone has a bad day now and then and in fact, some vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resorts find themselves getting a bit grumpy. Almost as if they are going to audition to be one of the Seven Dwarfs. Even as a guest staying at Disney it is possible to help others who are finding themselves having a less than magical day, turn their frown upside down and making their day a little bit more cheerful. Of course, you do not need to go as far as the Cast Members of Walt Disney World do, but there are little things you can do to help another guest’s visit extra magical.
One of the biggest hits at the theme parks this year is the addition of buttons used to announce whatever one may be celebrating. So why not offer a “Congratulations” or a “Happy Birthday” to someone wearing a button. Below are some suggestions that will help bring a smile to another guest’s face.
If you see a couple while standing in line for a ride wearing a “Happy Anniversary” button, simple say “Congrats! How many years have you two been together?” It will spark up a conversation, making the time in line not feel as long and they will remember that others recognized them because of their buttons.
If you see someone wearing a “First Visit” button ask him or her “Are you enjoying your first trip to Walt Disney World?” You never know, but this might create a conversation that could give you some travel advice or some ideas on what you may want to see next. Or you might be able to offer a first-time visitor some expert advice.
Let’s say that someone on your group is celebrating, take the time and let the whole world know. For example, if your sister is wearing a “Happy Birthday” button, start singing “Happy Birthday” to her while standing in line. Or get grandpa a birthday balloon to tie to his wheelchair.
There are also buttons that say “I’m Celebrating!” These are perfect conversation starters because you can ask, “What are you celebrating?” Or someone might ask you that question, allowing you to share you celebration excitement with others.
There are so many ways to help spread the Disney Magic while visiting Walt Disney World. You will be amazed at how you will feel when you make someone feel special during his or her celebration.
The next time you are at the parks, keep an eye for those wearing these buttons and make sure to pick one up for yourself. Celebration buttons can be picked up at any Walt Disney World Resort or Theme Park guest relations desk. Disney Celebration buttons are available at both Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resorts.
