Nametag from Simpsonville

My Disney Nametag

On the day I was hired to be a cast member at Walt Disney World, I was asked what name and town I wanted to put on my name tag. Since Disney is a first-name organization, I went with “Rob” because that’s my name! I also decided to put my home town as “Simpsonville, SC” instead of Orlando.

They gave me the choice to put where I currently live, where I grew up, or where I consider home. Though we moved to Orlando in 1999, I decided Simpsonville is a much more interesting place to have on a nametag than Orlando. Maybe that decision alone will lead to a few conversations I never would have had before.
