La la la, Whatever, La la la, It doesn’t matter…

21 Feb

That song has pretty much described my past few nights working. Whether Michael is singing it, or dancing while singing it, or I just need to let things roll right off my shoulder, it’s there.

Things are starting to pick up again since we’re headed into yet another peak season soon but I know I’m ready for it since I learned so much during Christmas time. Since my last post, I’ve gotten to know some of the new CPs better and I’m so excited that I get to share some of my random knowledge with them.

But enough about that, I wanted to share one of my most favorite magical moments from this program so far. The other night while I was working, I came across a little Princess who was not only polite to her parents and completely adorable but she was also bubbly and social. So after she went through the line with her family, I caught up with her at the end of the bakery line and told her that I had something for her from Mickey Mouse. I told her my story that I add to our Magical Moment [We all have our own distinct stories that we tell, and you know what, I like it that way because that way it’s never the same and it truly makes the Magical Moment even more special] and she was so excited. While her family left the line, I went back to work helping other guests and such. A little while later after our mini rush had died down, her mother came over to the line and asked if I could come out from behind the glass. No sooner did I come out, the little girl came running up to me and gave me a hug. After our hug, we had a little conversation about Alice and her adventures in Wonderland before she had to leave and I needed to go back to work but it’s the moments like these that make me love what I do. It makes up for answering the same question repeatedly, it makes up for those stressful and late nights, and most of all, it restores the Magic of the Magic Kingdom for me.

So, if any guests are reading, you never know how much you all have the power to affect the Cast Members that you come into contact with during your vacations. I promise you that one simple smile or thank you can have the biggest effect on how our days are going, even if you think it won’t matter, it does. So on that note, “La la la, Whatever, La la la, It doesn’t matter…” to all the negative things and keep moving forward because there’s a great big beautiful tomorrow.
