    Do You Congratulate guests?

    With 2009 just around the corner and a new campaign, "What Will You Celebrate", I wondered how many people from this forum wish people "Happy Birthday", "Happy Anniversary" or "Congratulations" when they see someone on WDW property wearing a celebration button.

    Never noticed them. But, when I go in June I will be sure to look for them. Now that I know. I did notice brides & grooms & wished them well. My husband & daughter are taking me for my birthday so I think they will be getting me one of the buttons. Should be fun, I love all this stuff. Can't wait.

    I should really be more observant. I can't recall wishing anyone a happy anything, but I think I will make it a point to do that this time around.

    We tend to wish happy birthday or anniversary when we spot a button. (Also, the white wedding ears are hard to miss on the bride...)

    You may be starting a trend here mini-V!

    I do notice the buttons, I don't say anything because I'm afraid they will say "what does she want" which is silly. If they didn't want anyone to make a fuss, they wouldn't wear a button! I think I will make more of an effort next visit and get over myself.

    When I see someone wearing a button, or bride and groom ears or a special custom made tshirt....I always congratulate them if I am passing by! I've even been known to go out of my way to go up and congratulate a new bride and groom. My hubby and I spent our honeymoon at WDW and I know how special it made me feel to have people congratulate us so I just like paying that feeling forward!

    When my wife and I went in Sept 2006 for the first time, we were celebrating our Honeymoon and my birthday. We were really surprised at how many guests were congratulating us and shouting Happy Birthday at us as they passed by.

    So, we made it a point to try and notice what buttons are being worn and pass on well wishes (Pay it forward). It has sometimes privided a great opportunity to strike up conversations with strangers.

    But, we were shocked when we went to Disneyland in 2007 for my wife's birthday and noticed that not only did very few CM go out of their way to wish her a happy b-day, but no guests. In fact, when we tried to wish people congratulatory wishes at Disneyland we often got very odd looks

    We will see when we go in April. Brianna will get a first visit button. Im usually to preoccupied looking at things that I dont see other people and what they are wearing. How ever if I see them on the bus or at the hotel I usually do.

    Actually, that does not surprise me at all!

    Truthfully, I never notice buttons. I do notice Bride and Groom ears and do wish them well. We got a lot of attention with our ears on honeymoon, so we like to continue it for other newlyweds.

    I must admit that I don't really congratulate the 1st Time visitor button wearers. To me that isn't such a celebratory event. But I really try to go out of my way to congratulate the Anniversary, Honeymoon, and Birthday people

    My wife also tries to strike up conversations with those with Make-A-Wish buttons on. They aren't Disney provided, but we've noticed them on occasion. We have a nephew that is a Make-A-Wish recipient so the organization holds a special place in her heart (hence her involvement with the auction at MagicMeets with her quilt).
