They stopped doing it at Disneyland, which is a shame. After the kid pulls the sword up, they were given a medallion on a ribbon. Throughout the day when cast members saw the medallion they would ask his name and then call attention and say fun things over the loudspeaker when we were getting on rides, such as, "Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, give a cheer for Zachary who pulled King Arthur's Sword from the Stone." People would clap. Zachary was always very quiet and shy, but I swear this made a huge difference in getting him to feel more comfortable when getting attention in public. He was just beaming all day long.
Zach just graduated from high school, so you can see I've been waiting a LONG time for this ornament. LOL.

I definitely believe that something like that can make a difference in kids who are super quiet and shy . . . speaking from experience of having raised two quiet and shy kids. Even when they earn special awards and achievements you can sense & feel their being uncomfortable with the attention, even very good/deserved attention, thankfully they adjust to it more as they get older. What a special memory for you and Zach both.
