This week, Walt Disney World Resort celebrated Imagineers and other Disney Park Cast Members at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. One Disney Imagineer, Justin DeTolla, shared his thoughts after the event on Instagram:

Working for a company that does its best to inspire those who’s jobs are to inspire others — to believe in magic, ergo to believe in one’s self.

That’s a real responsibility.

The fact that this company is celebrating those individuals, for doing what they do on a daily basis is pretty cool.

And for that fact alone, I remain constantly humbled to work where I do.
