It takes people

Monday, we talked about the individual stories of success in and around Disney presented throughout the plaques and the windows of Main Street U.S.A. This is one sight, however, that speaks to the volume of individuals whose combined efforts make each and every day a magical, successful event. The venue I am speaking of is the Magic Kingdom Casting Agency door that also resides on Main Street U.S.A.

(As a quite aside, the outpouring of support I received from Monday’s article truly took me aback, and I want you to know I treasure each and every one of you!)The door was installed in 2005, along the exterior to Disney Clothiers. The Magic Kingdom Casting Agency door simultaneously pays homage to all that Walt Disney could imagine, by listing him as the Founder and Director Emeritus, but also to the amazing army of Cast Members that stand on the frontlines of magic every single day by quoting Walt Disney. The quote from W.E.D.? “It takes People to Make the Dream a Reality.

Unlike the lofty windows of Main Street U.S.A., remember to always look up, this door is on the street level and accessible to everyone. Add in a pair of decorative Mickeys and the opening date for the office, as well as the Magic Kingdom, listed as Open Since ’71, and you have the makings of a wonderfully charismatic scene. A place that encourages guests to recall the Cast Members that make each day memorable.

Love that door! I have that photo and planned to post it someday. I'll wait a bit.
