How a Two Hour Disney Enchantment Delay Was Saved By a Toddler and a Hot Dog

When it comes to a Disney vacation, there are some things that people put on their “must-do” list. Some people have certain restaurants they need to eat at. Others have attractions they must ride. And some people make sure that they will be able to see the fireworks every night. For its 50th Anniversary celebration, Disney created a new nighttime spectacular at the Magic Kingdom — Disney Enchantment.

A showing of Disney Enchantment happens nearly every night, weather permitting. Disney is always clear on when Enchantment will begin, but sometimes there are unforeseen circumstances and the show can’t happen on time. Disney works quickly to get the show going as soon as possible, but you never know how long that will take. One Guest claims that they had to wait nearly two hours for Disney Enchantment to begin, but that the wait was worth it because of one adorable toddler who was standing near him.

The Guest retold the adorable story, saying:

Last night Enchantment was delayed due to weather, and this girl was next to me singing “We don’t talk about Bruno”. She couldn’t have been older than 4/5 yet knew more of the words than I did, which is impressive considering how much I’ve seen the movie. Every time she got to the part “He told me my fish would die” she would scream (not too loudly, just adorably), “Next day DEAD!”. Since the show was delayed, her parents were trying to get her to eat a hot dog they got from near by, they even told her if she finished it, she could go get something special from a near by store with her dad. Instead, this little adorable, cutest, and wittiest girl in the world starting singing “We don’t talk about hot dogs no no no”. LOL LOL I was laughing so hard, I had tears in my eyes. It completely made my night, and was 100% worth the close to 2 hour delay. btw in the end, she happily ate part of the hot dog and got to go to the store. LOL

It’s the little moments like this that make my trips “Magical”. I had more fun talking to people during the rain delay and wait for the fireworks, than I did anything else. It’s always the unexpected moments that make for the best memories. Next time something is going wrong, or not as you expected, just take a look around and take it all in, start a convo with someone, do something spontaneous you wouldn’t normally have done. That’s what the Magic is all about.

People from all over the world and from all walks of life visit Walt Disney World Resort every day. Meeting those people and talking to them can truly be a memorable part of your vacation. We are sure that this Guest will never forget the little girl who loves Encanto and wanted to let her parents know that they would not be talking about hot dogs until she was good and ready to do so.
