    hi! do cast members still have free "just graduated buttons available? thank you!

    Hi there, Lauren, and welcome to planDisney! 

    I love that you're planning on celebrating your graduation with a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Whether it's for birthdays, marriage, or new jobs, Walt Disney World Resort is my favorite spot to honor life's milestone moments as well. In my experience, one of the best parts of celebrating at Walt Disney World is the way you never celebrate alone. When you're sporting one of the complimentary celebration buttons, Cast Members, fellow Guests, and beloved characters are always eager to join in on the festivities with words of encouragement (or in Mickey's case, a big ole hug). 

    The celebration buttons can be collected upon request at Guest Relations locations, merchandise points of sale, or the front desk of Disney Resort hotels. While the graduation-specific buttons are no longer available, generic celebration buttons are now offered and friendly Cast Members will gladly customize them to denote your graduation. I once proudly sported one that read "I'm celebrating my new big girl job!" after I received word I had been hired for my first teaching job while in the middle of Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    Since it's a special occasion, I also encourage you to reserve one experience that will always take you back to this milestone when you think of it. Whether it's a dining experience with your favorite characters, a tour from the Enchanting Extras Collection, a Fireworks Dessert Party, or simply a stay at your dream Disney Resort hotel, I always love reminiscing on the way these experiences made our life's big moments even more special. 

    Congratulations on your achievement, Lauren! If any additional questions arise or you find yourself in need of some suggestions, feel free to stop back by. Hakuna Matata! I'm always happy to help!
