Create pixie dust in the Disney Parks, pay it forward.

Disney Store's Halloween BOOtique

If you have older kids like me, or if you are a group of adults going on your own trip – consider this story of mine:

I am walking down Main Street USA with my then 5 year old daughter dressed in a dress-up box make-shift princess gown –  when all of a sudden, two VERY cool and older teenage girls very shyly tap me on the shoulder.  The exchange goes like this:

  • Older girl:  “Um, excuse me ma’am (they were very polite).   If it wouldn’t bother or interrupt you and your princess too much, would you mind if she signed her autograph for me?  She is the prettiest princess I have seen all morning.  I got Belle’s and Snow White’s, but I don’t have yours yet (now talking to my daughter).  I have a pen if you could just sign your name?  Pretty Please with sugar on top?
  • My daughter:  “speechless” – looks at me…
  • Me:  “Oh yes, she would be happy to sign her autograph for you…go ahead sweetie!”
  • My daughter:  signing autograph with eyes bulging from her sweet little head
  • Older Girl:  “Thank you princess (insert my daughter’s name) – you are so beautiful”
  • My daughter:  as soon as the girls walked away …. “I think they were confused.”
  • Me:  “Nope Phoebe, the weren’t.  You shine like a princess all of the time and they saw it right away.  I am not surprised at all…you are beautiful beyond compare.”

And there, my friends, is some pretty awesome Disney Magic.  Why don’t you make some of your own?  It was the topic of conversation for the rest of our trip.  Pixie dust comes from all directions at Disney, get in on the magic!

What are some ways that you have created pixie dust of your own and paid it forward?  Give away some fastpasses?  Buy someone behind you an ice cream? Let a family line up in a queue so that they could all ride together?  Share your ideas so that we are all in the spirit for our next trip.  Be the Magic Walt imagined!

  1. I frequently visit the parks on my own. I have as much fun making sure that as many families as I can help get a whole family photo as I do having my photos taken with the characters. Many times they are so surprised they are speechless…

  2. This will make your details simple and easy so that employer can go
    through it at first instance. The beginning is rather simple:
    accept that you cannot do everything for your business.
    Various accounting firms allow students to serve as interns.

  3. There are those who don’t like the shopping experience.
    Indeed, Roberto Cavalli has drawn its own spot as one of
    Hollywood’s most sought-after Italian fashion brands.
    Broadband and problematic stunts are their pastime right now.

  4. We were the recipient of some of that balloon type pixie dust. Some young ladies behind us waiting for World of Color were watching my then 2 year old daughter and gave her their tinkerbell balloon “animal” She was sooooo happy. You see, she had just finished potty training and meeting Tinkerbell was one of her incentives. It was perfect. My kids always ask for the big balloons at the park. Next time we go, I may just have to buy them one just to give it away.

  5. I love your balloon story – that is exactly the magic I am talking about! I bet it is something your daughter will never forget. It’s nice to be important….but it’s more important to be nice 🙂

  6. Lisa, we did the same exact thing. We got a balloon, couldn’t take it on the plane with us and so we gifted it to a little girl that was there, the look on her face was PRICELESS! What a great feeling to leave with a memory like that!

  7. We buy my daughter a balloon at the beginning of trip and then on the last day we find someone with a younger child who is checking into the hotel and give them the balloon. To see the child’s face light up when they are handed a balloon is amazing!
