Dapper Day

April 28th and 29th 2018

Richard Gerth, who is 92-years old and the Official Greeter at the Grand Floridian, has been a Cast Member since 1991. The resort was looking for a greeter, so he walked in one day to apply for the job. He was given a number and told to go to Casting. When he arrived at Casting and gave them the number he was given, he was told he got the job. He never even filled out an application!  In addition to being the greeter, Richard is also the Official Fairy Tale Wedding Greeter and has helped over an estimated 3,500 brides on their special day. You’ll often see him in wedding pictures holding the bouquet, escorting the bride, and fixing the train. He has fixed so many wedding dress trains he calls himself a ‘train conductor’.  In 2013, Richard received the Walt Disney Legacy Award, an honor he holds near his heart. He loves the constant change of his job, never doing the same thing twice, and believes that ‘life is built on how you act to other people’. So if you are ever at the Grand Floridian, look out for Richard. If he’s not busy helping a bride, he’ll welcome you with a tip of his hat and gladly pose for a selfie!  © 2018 The Main Street Mouse™

Richard loved the old camera. Yes we took the black and white picture with it. He liked that it still worked and we had film. He would talk about cameras he had and the film had to be sent in for developing. He said not like the cell phone of today. He talked about his loving wife and he said you just have to move on in life. God will show you the way he said. He loves this job at the Grand Floridian.
Lawrence Stoen As you can see here Lawrence is looking like Richard on Dapper Day. He got the pants at the last minute and check out the name tag. He also has the spats and the shoes. I know he made the bow tie. He did a great job on looking so close to the real greeter at the Grand Floridian. Look how close the pattern on his hat band is!  Great job Lawrence.
