Disney Cast Members Made #DisneyMagicMoments with Thank-You Cards for Frontline Healthcare Workers!

With the global health crisis going on, a lot of folks are wanting to give back.


Disney has made a few big donations to help out with the crisis. They are donating 1 million cloth masks to children and families in underserved communities and the parks donated 150,000 rain ponchos for use in hospitals around the country. Now, Cast Members are showing their love with customized thank-you cards for healthcare workers through Disney Magic Moments.

Cast Members created more than 17,500 customized cards that Disney then printed and mailed to healthcare workers at almost 40 hospitals around the country. This Disney Magic Moments effort was to thank workers personally for their support, courage, and sacrifices.


Cast Members and employees were able to visit the Disney VoluntEARS Thank You Card page where they could build the card with customizable options. They were able to choose from designs inspired by Disney films, select their thank-you message of choice, and stylize it with their favorite font. The cards were delivered earlier this week.


According to Elissa Margolis, Disney’s Senior Vice President of Social Responsibility, “Since the pandemic began, we’ve heard repeated requests from our employees for ways that they can give back. We are thrilled to provide this opportunity to show our gratitude to the medical professionals who continue to go above and beyond and sacrifice so much in caring for others during this crisis.”

#DisneyMagicMoments: Sunrise Views from Cars Land in Disney California Adventure Park

Sunrise Views from Cars Land in Disney California Adventure Park

To offer a moment of peace and Zen, we’re sharing more #DisneyMagicMoments with everyone at home. Today, we are revisiting (and rewinding) a story from our “Disneyland Resort at Dawn” video series on the Disney Parks Blog! This series takes you to the wee hours of the morning when the parks are just waking up.

In the video below, watch the sunrise over Cars Land in Disney California Adventure park. Soak up the towering Cadillac Range mountains, the undisturbed sounds of Route 66 and natural beauty of the Ornament Valley.

Have you ever noticed the 6 mountain peaks look like tail fins of classic Cadillac models from 1957 to 1962? The mountains are inspired by the iconic Cadillac Ranch public art installation along Route 66 near Amarillo, Texas.

Check out more of these types of stories on our special #DisneyMagicMoments page on the Disney Parks Blog!
