We have been lucky enough to meet the Fairy Godmother many times at both Disney World and at Disneyland!
She is one of the kindest people that you can meet!
She’s a favorite of ours! She’s just the nicest character that you’ll talk to at the Magic Kingdom!
Then & Now
She got a costume update about 3 years ago.
Can you spot the differences?
The Fairy Godmother is the sweet and kind fairy that appears to Cinderella when she is in times of need and trouble.
She is a little forgetful, and her spells don’t last past midnight, but through her magic she enables Cinderella to go to the ball to achieve her dream.
With a flick of her magic wand and a Bibbidi Boppidy Boo, the Fairy Godmother is all that is pure and true in the world.
A Magical Moment Reunion for a Guest at Disney World
When Amber was 2 years old, she met Snow White at the Magic Kingdom.
“Every single time I saw her until I was 15, she recognized me and knew me by name. She made my Disney childhood so incredibly magical. I haven’t seen her in person since, but I knew she was now the Fairy Godmother. Today, I tracked her down & got to hug her. Best day ever!!”
And, she also occasionally has to comfort guests:
Shortly following her birth, Janice Murphy’s infant daughter Analiese died from complications related to a rare chromosomal disorder. Murphy recently visited Disney World, bringing with her a purple teddy bear containing her daughter’s ashes.
Murphy wrote that she spent several minutes in the park crying and mourning what she says her daughter will never experience. She lined up to see the Fairy Godmother, and when she finally shared her story with the Fairy Godmother, she writes that she was pretty much floored by her compassionate response.
“Despite your utter lack of knowledge, you included the bear in our interaction,” says Murphy. “And when you found out that my daughter died, and that her ashes are within the bear, you treated her the same way you treat every child that comes to see you every single day: with love, compassion and kindness. When you hugged her, and kissed her cheek, you made me feel like Analiese mattered to you.”
The interaction allowed Murphy to connect with her baby Analiese. She explained, “You helped me feel her spirit in a place she was never able to visit while alive.”

We’ve written two books about our time working – and playing – as Disney Cast Members at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
