How to thank Disney World Cast Members

I've never had a Disney World trip where Cast Members didn't create some kind of magical moment during my time there.

And no matter what you think of FastPass+, the Cast Members are the ones who are on the front line and feeling the brunt of all of the difficulties and complaints.

In the middle of all of that, many Cast Members still manage to make magical moments for guests.

Thanking them goes a long way. Here's how you can do it.

Request a "Great Service Fanatic" card

A former Cast Member shared on the WDW Prep Facebook Page that all guests can ask Cast Members or their managers for Great Service Fanatic cards to fill out. The card is signed by the managers and entered into drawings for Cast Members to win prizes. They will also have it added to their record which can help with promotions and transfers.

Take your own thank you notes

In addition to the things above, you can hand out cute notes directly to Cast Members. Something tells me if you go on your trip looking for things to be thankful for, you'll find them.

These thank you notes are about the size of a small postcard and you might choose to write on the back if you'd like to add a special note.
