It has been replaced with "Safe D Begins With Me". The 4 keys to unlock the Disney Magic are SCSE: Safety, Courtesy, Show & Efficiency. However, Safety is the #1 priority to Disney so that is why it is showcased on this coin. These Four Keys are listed on the back of this huge coin along with Mickey Ears!
I have several coins and some are in better condition than others because once the Cast Member got the award and coin, they were directed to recognize another Cast Member who was exceptional with "Safety" and "Pay Safety Forward". The coins have blemished and posibly nicked from being dropped.SAFETY Disney understands that for families to get the most out of an adventure of lifetime, they must first feel safe and protected. By constantly, relentlessly putting safety above all else, no Cast Member takes it for granted. As soon as it rains we put rubber mats out by the doors of shops. If puddles develop you will see yellow caution cones spring up.
We are encouraged to report accidents and "near misses", and are told "If you see something say something". Sometimes safety means being a little strict, as in telling guests not to climb on dangerous areas, or sit on railings not made for sitting, or not allowing a ride to start unless everyone has their seatbelt on.
But we always try to speak to guests in a courteous manner when we ask you to please adhere to our safety rules. Ropes and barriers are not there to make your life difficult. I think most everyone understands, we are not trying to be mean, we are trying to keep you and everyone around you safe. This is not always an easy task when there are thousands of people present (like at a parade or special show). COURTESY Courtesy is more than saying "please" and "thank you", although of course we do indeed use those words frequently.
Courtesy - in the Disney universe - means going above and beyond what's simply necessary and looking for opportunities to enthrall our guests. We are always looking to exceed expectations and create magical moments. Disney Cast Members do their best to be aware of guests around them and react to someone in need-whether it be noticing a special occasion or helping someone who looks unwell.
We are constantly searching for ways to make your vacation as awesome as possible. We are always encouraged to comment on special occasion buttons-after all if someone is wearing one, they want to be acknowledged!
We are prompted to talk to guests, ask where they are from, how many times they have visited with us, etc. I love talking to guests from all over the world, I've met some fascinating people and learned a lot of cool things.
As a bonus, I have noticed that if you treat a guest with respect and something does go wrong i. Problem with the cash register, the guest is a lot more likely to be patient while you resolve the issue. Notice next time you're at a merchandise store and you're waiting on line that you will rarely hear someone call out simply Next! Most of us will say "I can help the next guest right here" (or something along those lines).It's so much more inviting! We remind you about discounts and ask if you have any that qualify. I've stopped many a tearful child from crying by offering him or her a sticker.
It's all those little things that add up and make the Disney difference. SHOW Disney Cast Members must remain in character at all times.
People travel here to get away from the real world and we don't want to break the illusion of fantasy. Disney requires Cast Members always commit to their roles - whether that role is playing Mickey Mouse or serving your food at a Disney Restaurant.
It is extremely important that we are always in costume and that the costume is clean and not wrinkled. If your role includes pin trading it is expected you wear your pins to work. And of course, everyone must have a name badge. If we are on stage, we cannot take out our cell phones or do anything to break the feeling of magic. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the Magic Kingdom, the first park built at Walt Disney World.
You will never see someone in Frontierland wearing a Future World costume. That would spoil the illusion. Instead the Cast Member enters the correct "Land" from underneath the Magic Kingdom in a tunnel area called the Utilidors. I never say "that's not my job" because it IS my job, it's the job of any CM who sees it. A dirty and or disorganized park/store/resort is not magical.I wonder if you have noticed that you will rarely see a Cast Member leaning on a wall or counter? It looks slovenly, and unwelcoming, so we are encouraged to stand up straight and tall, and look happy and approachable.
If there are no guests on line CMs will come out from behind the register and stand in front of it, so there is no "barrier" and makes the guest feel more welcome. We'll also take the time to straighten out our area to ensure it remains "show ready". EFFICIENCY Disney Cast Members are always on the lookout for ways they can make it easier for guests to experience the Disney Magic.
Cast Members learn how to quickly solve problems and turn an unhappy situation into a happy one. We listen if you have an issue and try to resolve it as quickly and efficiently as possible. Sometimes we must be very creative to come up with solutions to unusual problems. It is always very satisfying to turn an angry unhappy guest into one who is smiling and relaxed. I hope this blog gives you a little more of an idea of what it's like to be a Cast Member at Walt Disney World, and how we use the four keys to remind ourselves of our responsibilities.
One of the coolest things is being recognized for going above and beyond, and receiving a "Four Keys Fanatic Card". It's the only picture I have added to this blog, as we are not allowed to take pictures backstage, that might ruin the magic for some guests. I hoped despite the lack of photos you enjoyed reading this and that you learned something new!
