Just made a family’s day at Magic Kingdom even more magical. First I was walking near “Under the Sea…” and saw a family about to take a picture at the entrance when the youngest of the two, dressed as Tiana and was the birthday girl, fell and was about to start crying. So I ran over and said “Princess are you okay?!” And she mumbled with a pouted lip, “No”. So I said, “Well I wanted to ask you for your autograph…” And that was it! She took the pen and pad and started her name (more like random dots but it was so cute) and I gave stickers to her and her sister. Then the eldest sister signed the pad with both of their names. The parents were so thankful that I halted the tears and when they went to take the picture I stood next to them and said, “Say Mickey!!” The girls complied and I wished them all a magical day.
Then about four hours later Wishes was about to start and I was looking for a princess and her family to narrate the fireworks for. And who do I spot? Little Tiana, out-of-dress little Cinderella and their parents. So I went over and asked them if I could narrate the fireworks for them and show them a better spot as their current one would have the carousel blocking Tinkerbell flying. They agreed and I took little Tiana by the hand and moved them over about a hundred feet and narrated the fireworks and where to look when. The parents were so happy the mother hugged me at the end and tried to put money in my hand. She said, “You have made our day so many times!” I told her no multiple times but she kept insisting until I gently but physically placed it back in her hands. I told her, “This is my favorite part of my job. I love to make magic happen.” The father told me, “Well thank you for picking us out of the many families in the crowd.” I went on to tell them how I love to spend the fireworks with a family because I can’t be with mine as they are in NJ. They said they would be heading back to Boston and would send a wave my family’s way.
