Behind the Nametag: Disney Cast Member Thankful for Disney’s Support

Since he was a child, Senior Technical Project Manager Lenny Alberts has been making trips to Walt Disney World with his family. His lifelong love for Disney led him to pursue a career with the technology and digital organization, which he’s worked in for over 5 years. However, when he first became a cast member, he didn’t realize Disney would have as big of an impact on his personal life as it did on his career.

When Lenny and his wife were struggling to realize their dream of having a child, they discovered Disney has programs to support parents both mentally and financially. They explored in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments, and ultimately the process was successful. Going through one of the most difficult times of their lives, Disney was there with the support and help they needed.

In March 2021, baby Amelia was born. Lenny loves to bring her to the parks and share the same experiences he had as a child with his daughter.

“You expect a paycheck, you expect a career, but at the end of the day, you don’t expect some of that magic being born,” said Lenny.
