Disney Cast Members Surprise Local Seniors With Easter Lilies
We’ve got a feelgood story for your Saturday morning! Cast Members at Walt Disney World are spreading a bit of magic this weekend but donating Easter lilies to 200 local seniors.
Cast Member, Michelle Giger Rohrmann manages the nursery where the flowers are grown and realized that with the theme parks closed the flowers which were intended for the parks could still spread a bit of pixie dust.
The floral gifts went to the Osceola Council on Aging as well as Meals On Wheels to incorporate in their deliveries seniors living near Walt Disney World. Each Easter lily has found a home with an elderly resident who is practicing social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Michelle said, “I’m glad that they are able to be enjoyed by these folks. I hope this will be a bright spot in their day.”
Michelle added that for her and the horticulture team members, Easter lilies also a symbolic significance. “To me, the lily is really symbolic of springtime – after a long, hard winter, the first thing to pop up is a lily. It’s a good representation of how we’ll come out of this together. We’ll pull through this. Better days are on their way.”
We here at MickeyBlog love the idea that though these flowers won’t be making their way to the parks and resort properties over the Easter season that they will still serve as a reminder that life continues to bloom during these difficult times.
