I need a Disney fix so badly it's depressing anyone want to share some magical stories??β­βœ¨πŸŒŸπŸ‘ΈπŸ˜ƒπŸ‘‘πŸ­

On Wednesday just before the parade, I approached a mom and son in the walkway and asked them if they would be watching the parade with us. The mom said she really wanted to, but because her son had autism it was really difficult in these crowds and he hadn't ever seen it. I let her know that there was a reserved section for those families with wheelchairs, and knowing that it doesn't fill up very fast, I told her I'd ask the CM working over there if I could get them into that area. They ducked into the cinema while I conversed with the CM in the empty section to make sure it was ok. I went back to grab the mom and son. He put up a bit of a fight saying the didn't want to, but I talked to him and her and was able to convince him to give it a shot. I got them right in the front away from a lot of people so they could watch the parade. I also went and got the boy a We're Celebrating and Honorary Citizen button. The mom was so happy that he was giving this a chance. She told me that he didn't even start talking until he came to DL. He was able to say thank you to me! I checked on them a couple of times during the parade and the boy was still sitting watching the parade. The CM in that section let me know at the end of the night that they were able to watch the entire parade without incident. It really made my night!

Here is a story that should make you feel good......raveling in a fried-out combie On a hippie trail head full of zombie I met a strange lady, she made me nervous And he took me in and gave me breakfast And she said, "Do you come from a land down under? Where women glow and men plunder? Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder? You better run, you better take cover" Buying bread from a man in Brussels He was six foot four and full of muscle I said, "Do you speak my language?" He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich And he said, "I come from a land down under Where beer does flow and men chunder Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder? You better run, you better take cover", yeah Dying in a den in Bombay With a slack jaw and not much to say I said to the man, "Are you trying to tempt me Because I come from the land of plenty?" And he said, "Oh, you come from a land down under?" (Oh yeah, yeah) "Where women glow and men plunder? Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?" (Oh) "You better run, you better take cover" 'Cause we are livin' in a land down under Where women glow and men plunder (Yeah) Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder? (Thunder) You better run, you better take cover Livin' in a land down under Where women glow and men plunder Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder? (Ooh yeah) Then I run and then I take cover (Yeah) We are livin' in a land down under Where women glow and men plunder Can't you, can't you hear the thunder? Then I run then I take cover - Dave  13496.2 #2 9:50AM

I am deeply offended and consider this a threat. - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #218 10:50AM
Imagine you sing this on POTC while passing Blue Byou as the banana. - GrumpyPirateDad  1936.2 #86 10:58AM

My new husband and I went to Disneyland for our honeymoon a few months ago. He had never been and I kept telling him how truly magical Disney is. Well one night one of the cast members noticed our just married pins and took us to the front of the storybook boat ride. We got our own boat with a CM who was like a loving grandmother and told us all the stories of the princesses and prices during the ride while we passed their model houses. She related each of their stories to our new life together. After the ride they had a CM take us to the front of the line for ALL of the fantasy land rides. Each time we were about to get on the ride they would rig a bell really loud and announce our marriage. When the night was done they gave us a little cake candle, a glass slipper, and some champaign bubbles. My new husband turned to me and said "I get what you mean now about this place being magical" and kissed me under sleeping beauty's castle. One of the most unforgettable and best nights of my life. - BellesLibrary  411.9 #537 9:30AM
What a great story! Gave me goosies! - MadTeaPartyGirl  21.7 #7052 10:18AM

This year my boyfriend created a wonderful moment by asking me to marry him. He asked when we were both eating corn dogs before fantasmic. - ymart  93.3 #3692 8:54AM
Aww that's cute!!! Congrats! - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #179 8:55AM
@skippercm Thank you for understanding AUTISM... As a Dad of 4 children 3 having Autism, it's hard to deal with the crowds at the park. Having a cast member go the extra mile is Great! It's taken years for the parks CM to understand how hard autism is to deal with in the parks. In the past CM have not always been so nice. So I Thank You. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ - Fantasmicfan1  1538.2 #110 10:49AM
Awww, thanks. I know that Autism, Asperger's and other disorders on the spectrum are very misunderstood. As an education major in school and a mother who routinely works with students on the spectrum, I have developed a partial understanding of the requirements of many of these children. I am glad you are able to make it into the parks and I hope that other CMs will take the time to learn more about how to serve our guests with Autism. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 10:59AM
Corn dogs and Fantstmic now that is romantic. Hope you said yes !! - polo33  65.7 #4274 8:57AM
Nothing says romance like corn dogs and Mickey Mouse! Congrats! - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 8:58AM
One day my friend, our kids and I were wandering around Fantasy Land not sure what to do next. A CM came up to us and asked if we had ridden Peter Pan yet. We hadn't since the wait was 45 mins, so we said no. He then led us through the exit, bypassing the very long line and let us board right away :) - Nicole  380.2 #590 9:03AM
I was at Monorail DTD station last week and very patiently waited for a family to walk up the stairs in front of me with strollers and elderly people. They took so long and blocking stairs that I missed monorail. CM saw this so he took me to ride in the back car and told me to pick who could ride with me. I picked a family from Oregon celebrating a b'day. They were so excited and it made their day (and mine). - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 9:12AM
Aww that's cute! - NightmareKaren  364.3 #629 9:14AM
