Have You Met Walt Disney World Photographer Willie? Disney CM Willie

The time we spend in the Disney Parks provides us with many memories that we can take home and cherish forever, but there is more to it than just the rides. As important as the attractions themselves is the environment Disney creates for us to bond. Immersive lands that take us inside the classic Disney stories that we love are waiting for us to explore, with unparalleled design, and a meticulous attention to detail. However, it doesn’t end with the surrounding areas. There is another significant factor that makes Disney such a magical place to be: the people we meet along the way.

The loved ones in our own traveling family are only half the social experience, with Disney’s cast members playing a considerable role in our enjoyment. You will meet them at every turn, making sure the parks are in perfect condition, ready to assist you with any questions, and operating your favorite rides. cast members are what make the Disney world go round. From custodial workers to characters, these delightful humans have our dreams in mind as they continuously strive to make your day better. Among them is Willie, a Walt Disney World cast member who has been the most complimented cast member two years in a row! Can you imagine how many people have had their day brightened by Willie to earn that title? Take a look and see if you recognize our mate, Willie!

Today, we are asking you two things. First, have you ever taken the legendary photographic direction of Willie? We want to know your story and how you came to meet this charismatic cast member. The second is more of a challenge. The next time you are in the Disney Parks, whether tomorrow or ten years from now, take a moment to send in a cast member compliment. You can do this from the My Disney Experience app on your phone, which only takes a few moments. If someone in the parks makes a difference in your day, return the favor and make a difference in theirs.
