Security Guard Makes Magic Every Day
When Barbara Bunchuk’s 5 year old granddaughter, Alli, found out she was going to Disney World, she knew exactly what she had to wear for her day at the Magic Kingdom: her Cinderella princess dress. What she didn’t know was that she would be treated like a princess upon arriving at “the happiest place on earth.”
Shortly after entering the park, a security guard (not an actor) stopped the little girl, saying, “Excuse me, Princess, may I please have your autograph?” As Bunchuk remembers, “She kind of looked at all of us like, is this guy kidding or what? He was just gushing as if he believed she were a princess.”
What Gramma also saw was evidence of someone who spent every day making magic. “I could see that the (autograph) book was filled with children’s scribbles as the guard asked the same question of many little Princesses. Alli could not get over the fact that the guard thought she was a real princess.”
Mrs. Bunchuk posted the picture of this “moment of kindness” on Pinterest and without realizing, brought smiles to millions around the world.
All because of a security guard who makes it his job to share the magic, one princess at a time.
Walt would be proud.
