Walt Disney World is known for bringing the magic to life with the use of immersion, heavily themed areas, attractions, and character interactions.
But what happens when Disney performers are a little too talented? One former Disney character in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom recently shared a video detailing the story of the time they accidentally made a Guest cry while performing as a Disney villain:
In short, this former character performer was working as one of Cinderella’s Ugly Step-Sisters during a character dinner at Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort hotel.
While performing, she asked if one Guest wanted an autograph, as they had indicated so by placing it at the end of the table.
However, the Guest tells her that the autograph book is for princesses and princesses alone!

Staying in character, the Ugly Step-Sister performer makes a little fuss about not being a princess and snatches the autograph book, while giving the Guest enough time to stop her from signing it.
As the Guest did not indicate otherwise, the character performer did indeed sign her autograph. As she moved on toward other tables, she looked back to see the Guest in question crying because of the autograph!
In short, it’s always a good idea to be vocal (and polite!) about what you’d like to get out of the experience when experiencing a Disney character interaction.
After all, the character performers are there to make the experience as magical as possible, and they always want to make you satisfied with the character interaction if they can help it!
