BAY LAKE, Fla. – Walt Disney World is known to be the place where dreams come true.

Some of those magical moments are brought to life with a little bit of pixie dust from Disney’s incredible cast members.

Many of them going above and beyond to either share a unique tip, help celebrate a major milestone or help get that perfect picture in front of Cinderella Castle.

Now, during Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary park leaders are giving guests the opportunity to pay it forward and say thank you to those cast members.

On Wednesday, Disney said it has now added the option to provide a cast compliment on its My Disney Experience app.

“Guests can simply select a positive statement and location from an easy-to-navigate dropdown menu that reflects the magic they experienced made possible by the cast members at the heart of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” Disney explained on its blog.

To share a compliment with Disney, guests need to open the app and scroll down to the 50th anniversary event guide.
