All dress is OK, as the following wonderful story I’d like to share will show. Warning: you made need a tissue or 2…
Now that I’m a full-time character captain/leader, I’ve inherited a bid where I spend 2 nights working at CRT. The other night we had a family of four arrive. With them was their 4-year old daughter Emma. She was so happy and excited that she was going to eat inside the castle. But when she arrived and got in line to meet Cinderella before going to her table, she noticed all the other little girls dressed in their finest princess wear and gowns, and she began to cry softly.
Cinderella asked her why she was sad, and the little girl said she was so embarrassed because all the other little ones were pretty, but she had only a t-shirt and jeans, and wasn’t dressed pretty enough to eat at the Castle.
Cinderella took her by the hand, brought her upstairs to the restaurant, and told Emma she was more than welcome to have dinner in her castle, no matter how she looked, and took Emma to the table. Shortly after, the head chef arrived, with a BRAND NEW Cinderella gown for Emma. The family’s jaws dropped, and there were so many tears, but very good tears.
It was a great reminder of why I do what I do, and how the smallest bit of kindness can turn an entire experience completely around.
So long story short, t-shirt and shorts are OK! :biggrin:
