That is so thoughtful to take the time to sign something special and give a fun message. Way to go to the CM's that go that extra and unexpected mile. CM's you already make our days special...so thank you to all of them! :)) - CoralsReef  319.2 #805 12:56AM
That is absolutely awesome. We're coming to find you in October Maynard. - unclebeezy  255.1 #1303 5:06AM
I agree Corals!! I can't wait to get my signed love note from CMBaloo when I am there in Oct. He will be the first CM I stalk and I will cherish anything I get from him. Whether its a big bear hug or a handshake. I heart CM's that go the extra mile to make your visit even more magical. - DizGeek  453.6 #483 5:24AM

Maynard is a class act like that. To have a CM give you anything, even a little note is sooooo special. - OutNumberedMom  813.2 #225 7:02AM
Very cool thanks for sharing. - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 7:02AM
Fantastic! - MoonWillow  381.3 #589 7:11AM
Very cool! Since he goes out of his way for us, maybe we can give him compliments at city hall.  - indyRocks  373.7 #609 7:17AM
What a SPECIAL souvenir to take home from Disneyland - Iyqtoo  212.8 #1838 7:46AM
What a wonderful thing for him to do, and it's very skillful, too! What I'm most impressed by, however, is his impressively clean manicure. Love a guy who takes care of his hands! Yay, Maynard! - Sugarbaker  273.5 #1130 7:51AM
How long did it take him to do that? - cesium55  531.8 #390 7:55AM
Wow....glad he made you something you can appreciate....all CM's do what they can big or small...in some little way to spread the magic..... - iyuzMickey  515.9 #406 7:56AM
Very cool! Getting a drawing or note from a CM is one of a kind, what a great way to share magic!  - LBChica  2437.4 #59 8:37AM
@romec im curious also how long did it take him to draw that? Maynard really goes above & beyond to bring smiles. - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 8:41AM
Maynard is truly a one of a kind AMAZING man!! He was happy to hear that my boys, now 21 & 20 still remember meeting him on their 1st visit 16 yrs ago in the Tiki room. @DonnieV- It took about 45 minutes. We watched the Tiki show and waited for him to start the next one. In between 2 shows he would come out and do the black and white sketch. We told him that it was VERY, VERY nice and we just expected an autograph and pic with him and thanked him. As we were leaving he said to wait because he was not done that he was going to make this one special. Told him it was ok because we didn't want to keep him from working and he said he was off. He started the color portion and it was great but he wouldn't stop until HE felt it was perfect! He told us he hadn't done color in quite sometime so we are TRIPLY HONORED that he chose us to do such an AMAZING drawing for. He asked me to download it to MW so he could see it before we left. I did and he was VERY excited and PROUD! And we are just as proud to know him for as long as we have! - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 12:42PM
I can't wait to meet Maynard... - fireflymom  60.4 #4427 12:50PM
Missed meeting you CS! Was hoping to bump into you. - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 1:01PM
@romec123...so great to see this day was even more magical for you folks because of maynard...a keepsake to be treasured always. ;-) - uscdisneyteacher  7900.8 #10 1:01PM
This is just so cool :) who wouldn't appreciate this? Thanks for the story too Romec123, and for adding some quality content and positive vibes :) you rock! - TandAlly  213.5 #1825 1:08PM
hahaha isnt he working? how did he have time to draw and color all that? and does he just walk around with crayons or colored pencils in his pocket? doods got skillz haha - PumpkinKing83  73.3 #4083 1:37PM
With every post of Maynard, you just can't help but fall in love him more and more. He is truly magical. - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1036.1 #177 1:44PM
Like! - Zooter  1402.8 #126 1:45PM
That is an awesome autograph from an awesome person!!! Awesomeness all over the place right there!! - luvMickey  583.6 #347 3:57PM
A Hand written note from a CM who took time out of their BREAK should be appreciated also. That doesn't mean it was. I really wish some people would stop jumping to the defense of others and making blanket statements when they DON'T have all of the facts. - Mrsblue  693.1 #285 4:07PM
If only other amazing CMs who do nice gestures on their own time as well would be as appreciated! - TickledTink  370.8 #22 5:15PM
Almost 10yrs ago my brother was getting CM autographs since he thought they were the real magic. Now I wonder if he still has that book. - theDebsterM  138.2 #2913 5:31PM
Nice! - calidream1  398.0 #566 5:41PM
Maynard is cooler than dole whip :) - EwokLuver  74.1 #4062 5:42PM
Lol @ewok I agree! - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 5:47PM
It sounds like she's grateful. It's a cool thing for Maynard to do anyway. And yeah, where did he get the color pencils/watercolors? - cesium55  531.8 #390 5:49PM
I would hope that fellow MW'ers believe me when I say that IF I HAD received a HAND WRITTEN note from a CM who took time out of THEIR BREAK I would MOST definitely be both touched and appreciative of their kindness. I have no idea why people judge other people on one or two misunderstood comments without asking for clarification. - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 6:52PM
Super cool - disneyfanforever  33.4 #5677 6:52PM
@Jedivegan lol. - MeAndMy3Girls  183.3 #2210 7:00PM
LOL. - Mrsblue  693.1 #285 7:06PM
nice, although I am a spelling NAZI and you spell fries, F R I E S Maynard, Lol you should know better - dizzylandjunky  224.9 #1672 7:09PM
@ckavp23 and cesium55~ IDK! Lol. While we stood there as he was drawing he shared some stuff about his life and every now and then I wondered where he got them from. I was going to ask but forgot. My husband asked the same thing. I'm thinking maybe he carries them with him and doodles during his breaks or he was waiting for the right time to use them. If it was the latter i'm pretty happy that it was my daughter. It was neat watching him do it as he used colored pencils, brushes and water. He said he wished the autograph book paper was better! - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 7:10PM
Disneylandjunky, I think it says figs! That's what it looks like to me, anyway. - Sheilamo  318.2 #811 9:49PM
Sheilamo- that's what I was thinking. lol - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 10:02PM
Funny photo! - WildcatKatey  22.3 #6951 10:53PM
Nice autograph. Lol - OneRareRose  141.4 #2862 10:54PM
