“How Do They Know My Name?”

Just another example of Disney magic – our only girl has answered to “Princess” from the day she was born. Everywhere we went at Disney World, cast members greeted her as “Princess!” The first time, she was utterly shocked–how could this stranger know her name? But after the first day, she seemed to accept it as perfectly normal! This little girl is normally VERY shy around strangers, but apparently people who know your name is Princess are ok! Pin It

Who Says Mickey Only Hides at Disney?

I took a ride on the Magical Blogorail today and got a great idea for surprising the kids from Kristen at Cooking with Mickey – hidden Mickeys! So I’m thinking, about a month before the trip, I’m going to start leaving a little stuffed Mickey Mouse in odd places. Then the morning of the trip, he’ll be holding the tickets (unless I find a 3-foot Mickey statue!) Any great ideas for strategic Mickey placement? Pin It

Anonymous Cast Members

There’s no question – Disney World really is magical. But there’s more to the magic than the characters. There is a small army of anonymous magicians who go out of their way to make sure the little details of your vacation just fall into place. I searched, and I don’t think I have a single picture of those cast members! That kid of bothers me. I remember them. They made our stay at Disney World the magical experience that it was. But they don’t get the accolades. Instead, they go home after their shift, take care of the kids, make dinner, and go back the next day to do it all over again. I’d like to invite you to share your memories of the anonymous cast members who made your Disney experience magical!  If you’re a Disney blogger, will you write a post on your blog celebrating the little...
