"I hope this will be a bright spot in their day."


Even with Walt Disney World temporarily closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, cast members are still finding ways to keep the Disney magic alive.

Upon realizing that they no longer needed all the Easter lilies originally intended for springtime decorations, nursery manager Michelle Giger Rohrmann and her staff arranged for 200 area seniors to receive a special Easter surprise this weekend.

The flowers were gifted to the Osceola Council on Aging and added to Meals on Wheels deliveries for local seniors who are practicing social distancing.

“I’m glad that they are able to be enjoyed by these folks. I hope this will be a bright spot in their day,” Rohrmann told Disney Parks Blog of the repurposed lilies. “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.”

How sweet is that?
