Getting chosen for special events at Disney World   PREP018 from WDWPrepSchool.comThere are several special things you can be chosen for at Disney World like parades, shows and park openings.

Today, I’ve got an interview with somebody whose family has been chosen for all of those things. She shares her experiences and tips on getting picked for these special things that can bring a little extra magic to your trip.

I also have a quick tip that will let you know a shortcut to exiting one of the nighttime shows.

These are notes from this episode. There’s much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

Interview with Jody Williams

Jody has a blog at http://toddjodybrent.blogspot.com where she details the various experiences they’ve been chosen for.

In this episode, she discussed being part of the Animal Kingdom parade, opening 3 of the parks and being part of the Indiana Jones show at Hollywood Studios.

Jody also shared some of her tips for increasing your odds of being chosen which include wearing matching shirts, being willing to say yes to what Cast Member’s ask (and without hesitation), arriving early and sometimes just a stroke of luck.

Here’s a video showing the Cast Member named Barbara who Jody mentioned. She makes me happy to watch.

Quick tip of the day

When you enter the theater for the Fantasmic! show at Hollywood Studios, you come in from the top left part of the theater. When you exit, go out the top right of the theater which will take you right to the front of the park.

My hub was picked out of the crowd at Epcot to be Romeo in a street play, was introduced on the movie screen at the Muppet show as the man who was paying for everyone’s snacks after the movie, and was approached by Belle who started a whole little street thing by mistaking him for the King. Not sure why he was chosen, but he loved every single minute of it, and somehow they just knew he would ! (It helps to be friendly and pleasant, and responsive to others.)

My husband and I were on our honeymoon. We were at animal kingdom when we were approached. It started as a simple congratulations. Then into a how long have you been married question. Next thing we knew we got offered to sit in the parade. It was awesome. I’m so glad I wore my ” just married” pin

My son was so excited to be seeing Captain Jack Sparrow and wanted badly to be a part of his crew. So he dressed up and walked around MK all day long in order to be chosen. Captain Jack picked him out of the crowd, called him “Mini Me” and even personally sword fought him instead of letting Mac sword fight him. It was unforgettable!!

We were chosen as the Magic Kingdom family of the day on our trip this past October. It was a lot of fun!
