During these tough and uncertain times, it is important to keep hopes high. At the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, there is still a little magic even though the park is empty.
Last month, the Walt Disney World Resort closed its gates in order to keep guests and cast members safe amid world pandemic. The resort’s president, Josh D’Amaro, wanted to ensure guests that there is still a little magic to go around. With the help of a few cast members, the American flag still rises every single morning.
D’Amaro had this to say about this magical moment, “While our world looks very different today, one thing endures…the American flag still flies over Walt Disney World. I’m inspired how our Security Cast Members continue to raise it each and every morning at Magic Kingdom while they are on duty protecting the magic. It’s a symbol that we’re still here and will not falter. I hope this inspires you as well. We will be back. Thanks to all our incredible Cast Members who continue to maintain the magic until that day. Until then, please take care of yourselves and your families. We will see you soon.”
Just like President Josh D’Amaro, we are so appreciative of all the cast members who keep us safe and preserve the magic. We hope the parks will get back to operating safely soon. However, this symbol of hope helps us see that everything will be alright and we are all in this together.
