Do you believe in magic? I do, and the husband’s faith in magic, especially Disney magic has been restored.
You see, on our most recent trip to Walt Disney World, the husband lost his hat. The one you see in the pictures above. A non-descript, brownish baseball style hat with Animal from the Muppets on it along with a handful of Disney trading pins.
He wore the hat throughout our trip, until Thursday evening. Sometime and somewhere between dinner at the Biergarten and Future World, the hat disappeared. The husband noticed that hat was gone when we got off the Friendship boat launch across World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT. Sure enough, the hat was missing.
We were headed to Spaceship Earth and Guest Services was nearby. The husband went to Guest Services after our ride on Spaceship Earth. The boy and I played a while on the games at the exit and then joined the husband.
He was handed a card with a telephone number for Lost and Found. He called the number the next day at Guest Services in Hollywood Studios. The boy and I were shopping while the husband went to conduct business. When we exited the park and were headed to the Friendship boat launch to take us to the Beach Club, the husband sighed and said that the hat “was gone” and “for good.”
Today, March 28, is the husband’s birthday. He sent me a text late in the afternoon that Disney had sent him a present. I replied, “Is it your hat?” Yes! It was the hat and with all the Disney trading pins in tact.
Just knowing that these kinds of miracles take place on a daily basis at the most magical place on earth is another reason we keep going back. Do I believe in magic? You bet I do!
