Last night I was on the bridge for WOC and I was talking with a family and the Dad told me that the family had been saving for the past 3 years just to come to the resort for 4 days. I asked how their trip was and the Dad started venting about a few things he was disappointed with (none of which Disney has control over) and it broke my heart a little. Being from SoCal I sometimes forget how fortunate I am to live so close to the parks and be able to go (as a guest) as often as I do. I didn't want this family to go home and feel their trip was just "ok" so I asked my lead if there was anything we could do for them to add a little magic to their night. After a little discussion we decided to get them ice cream! I walked the Dad over and he chose the Mickey ice cream sandwiches. When he went back to his family the kids were so excited. They had a great view for WOC and now a special treat. It made my night knowing I was able to do something to hopefully turn their trip around. It wasn't much but it was enough-the family thanked me and the Dad gave me a hug. A little later I had my check in with my manager and he presented me with my ears! He also told me that he swore I had been working for Disney at least a year and was surprised to learn I had just completed probation. He said he sees me as a leader and is impressed with me and pretty much said I could cross train at ANY attraction on the Pier!!! It nice to be recognized for working hard. I love working at the Resort and I'm truly blessed! I've had an amazing 4 months and I work with some amazing people! (Ok-this post is long enough! Lol)
