Top commenters urged viewers to give him a cast compliment.

They’re referring to the My Disney Experience App’s Mobile Cast Compliment feature. Launched just last year, the feature has already brought in more than 25,000 compliments per Disney Parks Blog.

“Throughout the 50th Anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort, our cast members continue to be the heart of the magic and go above and beyond to provide magical experiences for the millions of guests who visit. In fact, our cast members have received countless recognition over the years through guest letters, emails, and the thousands of posts we see on social using #CastCompliment, and now, the popular Mobile Cast Compliment feature in the My Disney Experience mobile app is the newest way for guests to compliment cast.

Beginning today, it will be easier than ever to recognize the people who make magic for you during your visit, as you can now compliment individual cast members – by their first name and hometown – as part of new enhancements to Mobile Cast Compliment.”
