Last fall, we took our granddaughter to Disney World to celebrate her fourth birthday. When we checked in, she was given a birthday button to wear. Everywhere we went, she was greeted with birthday wishes – of course, she had forgotten about the button and couldn’t believe that everyone knew. During the day, we had a wonderfully magical dinner at Cinderella’s Castle, where she had the pleasure of visiting with all of the Princesses. This was one of the highlights of the trip. We visited Tinkerbell too.
That evening, as we were leaving the Park, we arbitrarily stopped at the Confectioner’s on Main Street. When we entered, a very kind and perceptive Cast Member came right over to say that they had been waiting for her and to give my granddaughter a special birthday treat. When she asked how they knew, they told her that Tinker Bell had called to tell them, The awe and the genuine appreciation that crossed her face almost had us in tears. As simple as it was, it worked! At that moment, she truly believed in fairies!
