I had a rough day yesterday. It was one of those days that I needed to strap in, because one thing went wrong then other things got piled on and by the afternoon, it was just horrible. We’ve all had these kinds of days. But as I headed home, I met my wonderful wife at the store to do some food shopping. I had our list of groceries, and I asked her if she had a pen, she handed me one out of her purse. It was a Walt Disney World Resorts Pen, that was obviously mistakenly taken when we were there. At seeing the pen I thought how I wished we were there. After we got home and ate, I sat down to work on a new article and checked on some correspondences. What happened next was really great. I was sent a little Pixie Dust from across the Atlantic. A friend from England said some really nice things about me and because of that, some more wonderful Disney People are now reading the website. It’s amazing what a few kind words can do. It got me thinking of all the great things that can happen to you when you are in Walt Disney world. So, today I present to you, the Unknown Magic of Walt Disney World Pixie Dust.

Wiktionary.com says that Pixie Dust is “dust purported to be passively produced by pixies. It is represented as being magical in quality and can grant certain abilities to those who can obtain and harness its power.” In Walt Disney World, there are so many people and things that can harness this power and end up granting Magical Experiences. A lot of times you don’t even have to look for the Magic, the Pixie Dust just happens to make things wonderful.

Sometimes it is as easy as looking at the sunset or sunrise, or looking up after a quick Florida rain shower. It can also be brought to you by just looking at the sky.
I took this picture of the sky above Epcot,
during one of our trips.



Other times the Pixie Dust is brought to you by the Disney Imagineers, and the way they make the parks or parts of the parts look. For example, Cinderella Castle at night is amazing. And, the landscaping in Epcot is Magical.

Of course the biggest Pixie Dust suppliers are the Disney Cast Members. The great people that help you check in and enjoy your Resort stay, or the people that help you get around to the parks; these wonderful people not only make things great for you when you are in Walt Disney world, but they also help you before you get there, and even if you need help when you get home. On one of our trips many years ago, we actually lost a bag of shirts and other things we bought when we were out shopping in Downtown Disney. I called the front desk that day and told them what we had lost. A week later when we were home we got a package in the mail. It was the shirts and other things we had bought. They found it in the Disney Lost and found and shipped it to us.

Another great source of Pixie Dust is the other Disney World guests. When you are waiting in the queues or on a bus, boat or monorail, one of the best things you can do to pass the time is talk to the other people that are waiting with you. You never know who you are going to get to meet or what great things you are going to learn.

So, now you know, when you are in Walt Disney World, there are so many ways to Magical Experiences, because of the Pixie Dust that is all around. All you need to do to find it is look around the parks, talk to some new people and just enjoy.
