Making a Magical Moment for Guests: It’s what we do!
This was posted on our DCP blog this morning….A Magical Moment for two Magic Kingdom guests.
I found your blog while looking for a Disney cast member. My 16 year old daughter with Down syndrome met Thomas the pirate at the entrance to the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction on 4/22/15 between 7pm and 9:30 pm, if I’m not off on the time.
Thomas was wonderful with my daughter and gave her a ‘no strings attached’ paper good for a Mickey ice cream bar with a Disney princess showing at the top. Amber was so impacted by Thomas that on the way out that she asked to keep the slip and not get the ice cream so she could keep it to remember Thomas.
If you or someone else reading this knows cast member Thomas please thank him for teenage princess Amber and her mom for the priceless memory of that night.
Amber still talks of pirate Thomas and she put her no strings attached paper in her scrapbook to always remember him. G.C.
We posted the message on the Spring 2015 facebook wall and within 5 minutes several CPs had tagged Thomas and said what a great CP he is!
We contacted the guest and gave her the email address to Disney Guest Services so that Thomas can get officially acknowledged at work.

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
