Cool, wish we were there.... we were there yesterday & I was telling my six year old about locker raks.... she really wants to participate in one, hopefully next visit...:-) - disneymomma1  325.8 #772 9:43AM
Awesome! - CM-timndebbie1  29.5 #6033 9:44AM
Such a cool RAK!! - mcarthy6  426.5 #517 9:44AM
I hope I make it in time. We are getting a late start this morning. Day 5 @ DL. The kids legs are starting to get tired. - archer  20.2 #7307 9:55AM
Didn't take a beanie, but left a few goodies. Have a Magical Day! - PrinceCorey  4522.4 #30 10:29AM
Wish we were there to play. Love your bunny beanies! Hope everyone has fun with this great RAK! - bunnymama  363.8 #632 11:23AM
All gone. :-( - archer  20.2 #7307 11:24AM
Are u serious? Already!!?? - Kelseeeey  145.6 #2786 11:30AM
Bummer  dumb trolls  - Dreamer  276.1 #1096 11:32AM
Wow, all gone?? That stinks!! . Remember when Locker RAKs lasted all day!! Next time I'm in the parks, I'm goin to do a locker RAK and sit and watch for these horrible scavengers who take more than what they should. Then I will take their photo and post it on Mousewait. So beware scavengers, I'm coming to catch you!  - nittywitty  195.8 #2049 11:38AM
If you claimed a friend please sign in. 12 friends gone and not enough comments to know who got to have some joy!?! - DisneyDancer  152.4 #2677 11:44AM
Yea. The kids were very exited but I told them people that needed them more than us got them. Then they were ok. - archer  20.2 #7307 11:51AM
When I checked in, some were gone but there were still about 4 beanies left. - PrinceCorey  4522.4 #30 11:53AM
It seems the ones with pics get the trolls. Maybe we shouldn't show what's in it and they will be too lazy to check. Does that make sense? - SueBayou  2019.0 #78 12:29PM
We didn't post pics of the inside of our LR @Sue and the trolls cleaned it out, we need to figure out a new system though cause it really saddens the kiddies who get so excited about doing for others! - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 12:33PM
Awe that is so cool :)) wish I was there :)) - Panda89  118.5 #3256 12:44PM
i like what chumash said about just meeting up in person or what about texting so there is a record of who got the code then the culprits will be narrowed down? idk but this is all too lame to happen to people who are just trying to have a giving, sharing spirit! - grapesoda  382.3 #587 12:49PM
Good point @ DV. Maybe texting is the way to go, has anyone tried it? Maybe a little hidden camera in the locker lol. - SueBayou  2019.0 #78 12:55PM
wow me and the boy got eeyore this morning and there was tons left and we even left two pins for you guys. can't believe people just took everything! :( - ericuhhhh  28.2 #6165 12:56PM
It's a shame trolls have to mess it up. A big part of the magic and fun is being able to give anonymously. I love the surprise aspect of it. - VeloMouseGirl  549.8 #371 12:59PM
Disney has cameras in the locker rooms. Maybe they can let you watch. You do have exact times of some events. Just a thought. Then you can maybe hunt them down in the park if they're still there - TheDonald  72.3 #4108 1:00PM
This irritates the heck out of me. Last time we participated in a locker RAK it was also for a child, an everything got swiped then too....I'm texting you now so I can send a few things to you for the kids via postal service. - pridegirl  386.8 #582 1:00PM
I think the txtin code would work or maybe we could have them find a cm like bbm or cmbaloo to get the code ??? And we need to stop using 1955 way to common  - mommy_likes_minnie  270.8 #1154 1:05PM
For future reference, texting the code is a good idea for now. - Starr  550.3 #370 1:07PM
I think it should be a code that is personal to you. Have folks txt you with their txt number for you to respond back. I for one have problems searching from MW so I have to find a post with their name in order to respond..that's why I would need a txt number. - Gia  802.0 #231 1:09PM
This entire stream breaks my heart. How are you supposed to show your children kindness, a giving heart, compassion and so on, when people ruin the meaning of a RAK by stealing? Shame on them! I can only say that their life is miserable and all I can do is feel sorry for them. Any respectable human being wouldn't do such thing. - PirateJedsMommy  173.0 #2356 2:12PM
When i first read about these locker RAKs i thought Wow that sounds really fun. I can't believe some people are abusing the system. Is it so hard to share? - Jillian  767.1 #244 2:19PM
Bummer... sorry you locker is empty. Maybe later in the day someone will surprise you. - MeAndMy3Girls  183.3 #2210 2:21PM
That is so wrong of people! - NightmareKaren  364.3 #629 2:27PM
@PirateJedsmommy-I'm confused by your comment. They are being taught kindness, giving, sharing and compassion if they are not expecting something in return. Remember a RAK means a RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS! Other wise it would be called a Random Act of Give me something because I give you something. Now if they want to trade it's a whole different game. It SHOULD be called LOCKER TRADE and if they are cheated then of course it's stealing and wrong. JMO - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 2:27PM
What if they weren't stolen. Maybe peeps got them as a rak. The clue for the code wasn't that hard to figure out. Lets not think negative about this. But in the future, why not make it a locker scavenger hunt? Atleast, that way the culprits would have to work for it. Food for thought. - KILLtheCHICKENS  4.4 #21508 2:40PM
And if its a RAK, why did you post a pic of ur sad kids? Why update where u were, where u going next, and ask for something to cheer you up? This seems like more of a "give us free stuff" scam to me - gobigdan  11.9 #9907 2:49PM
! GO, BIGDAN!! Sadly I have to agree. - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 3:01PM
Okay I would understand if it said don't worry about trading but this post said our kids would love to trade for something so obviously they were expecting something in return in previous locker raks it is more like a trade so people are abusing the system. - SarahInWonderland  42.9 #5078 3:04PM
Then it needs to be called a locker trade not locker RAK. - TickledTink  370.8 #22 3:06PM
@Romec123 But even I if it was a RAK and not a trade, you can't really believe that only one person can take everything! It's called sharing! - YoungDisney  369.0 #620 3:12PM
Okay sure if you didn't read the whole post it does say locker rak but it does say they want to trade something for these!!!!! Most locker RAKs are locker trades and unless specifically said so you should assume that it's not just a grab and go! - SarahInWonderland  42.9 #5078 3:15PM
It said "they would love IF YOU WANT TO" trade! We all know that some people really need things spelled out for them!! So it should have said " a hidden camera is in this locker YOU MUST trade something for something". Betcha it would still be full! - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 3:23PM
I did a locker rak and we ended up with hardly anything, what disappointed me was not that we ended up with nothing left, I was disappointed that there were a bunch of people who took too much and didnt leave notes. The point for me was to see everyone's cool messages and spread the magic. If you want to take something and not leave something fine, but take 1 and leave a little note. That way everyone enjoys - Pixarprincess  544.4 #375 3:24PM
Okay well maybe I'm wrong but I'm the kind of person who would leave something in return and I'm sure several other people here are too. They were obviously expecting something in return and if you are the type of person who would just take something then you can do that I just question what type of person you are but that's my opinion an no one is going to say YOU MUST trade something because that would make them sound really rude so they are going to say something like what they said. I translate that as a locker trade while you may not. I'm not going to try to change your mind because obviously there is no way I can change it. - SarahInWonderland  42.9 #5078 3:43PM
I agree with @Sarah. Its more logical to trade so then there could be more to share! Then if someone goes there will be something for them, and they won't be sad. - YoungDisney  369.0 #620 3:45PM
@youngdisney thanks for backing me up I'm glad someone feels the same way as me - SarahInWonderland  42.9 #5078 3:47PM
@Sarah No problem! I got your back! :) - YoungDisney  369.0 #620 3:54PM
to bad trolls could care less about any of your backs - toph  2418.2 #60 3:56PM
Ok folks - I know I'm posting late on this, and may have an unpopular opinion...but here goes... What if the people who took an item were genuinely honoring the RAK as it was intended and just didn't have a phone to say thank you yet on MW? I know for me, I don't have and Android or Iphone, so anything I post is from a laptop - so if I got to the parks - I won't be able to say thank you on MW until I got home. I agree with @romec. However, I do also agree that everyone should at the very least write a "thank you" with their MW name in the locker on a piece of paper or something...and then that person should make an effort to host a RAK for others at a future date (reciprocate the kindness!!). Doesn't mean they are a bad person, simply because they don't leave something in the locker at that moment. What if they did their own very generous RAK from home the next day? Just my two cents...if it is going to offend people that items aren't traded...then the name of the game should be Locker Trade. I'm more concerned about seeing someone's face light up when they find something I've placed in the locker RAK, then expecting that person to leave something in return. The important thing is to remember what a RAK was originally intended for, and if you are the beneficiary this time, you must "pay it forward" very soon! :o) - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 4:04PM
Oh, and just know that I think its absolutely AWFUL if someone did, in fact, take everything. That would be despicable. - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 4:06PM
For the final time IF YOU WANT A TRADE DON'T CALL IT A LOCKER RAK because your not doing it with kindness. STATE that it's a LOCKER RACK!!!!! And no I'm not the kind to take without leaving anything!!! - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 4:06PM

Though I really don't so much agree with your theory Alice you do present a good point. One can now only hope you are right. Maybe someone should bump the locker rak general rules lol. I will simply agree to disagree at this time. - OB1JacoB  104.7 #3512 4:11PM
I'm done with this topic sorry if people don't agree with me but that is my opinion - SarahInWonderland  42.9 #5078 4:11PM
didn't yell it. but couldn't resist saw despicable and well yeah...banana - toph  2418.2 #60 4:12PM
Correction @romec No need to yell @toph banana - YoungDisney  369.0 #620 4:14PM
Banana? Lol... is that code for this conversation is done? Haha I like it! - OB1JacoB  104.7 #3512 4:16PM
LOL! Ok, thank you everyone. I appreciate your kindness towards my thoughts :) On another note...I'm trying to plan my first RAK next time I'm in the park on October 2nd...I may not have a "frilly" photo to post on MW (since I don't have an Iphone), but I'll definitely let you all know what I'm wearing and think of something to give and hopefully you'll find me. :D - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 4:17PM
banana yd :D - toph  2418.2 #60 4:17PM
Maybe since we all have smart phones. If you are going to do a RAK make a new yahoo or gmail account just for your RAKS. You can put the email address in your RAK. People could email you for the code. When you email them back you can tell them the instructions. Then you will know how many you gave the code too! And ad far as leaving something. I think it's hard for some lil ones to understand they have to give something to get something. It's not charity. Yes it's good to teach our kids this, but sometimes it's fun for them to just get something and write a lil thank you note! It is Disneyland! When we tried to do a locker RAK it took Lexi (7) forever to find something she didn't like to buy, to leave to trade for something else. It was really counter productive. I think to leave a post card with a note saying thank you, would have been a much better experience. Just my 2 cents! :) - Minnis2Society  369.9 #618 4:28PM
And if you don't have a smartphone. I would be willing to do the emailing while your in the park if that would help out!! - Minnis2Society  369.9 #618 4:33PM
Thank you bRAD! :) Ok, pickle. - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 4:56PM
I agree with not calling it a RAK if you want or expect something in return. I'd call it a Locker Trade. I wouldn't mind if people took one thing and just left me a note saying hi or something. But like someone else said, we should just do away with Locker RAKs all together. Too many things happen. I would rather find someone or have them find me. - AndReallyBadEggs  254.8 #1307 5:04PM
Would not have to yell if people learn what RAK means!!!! It means your doing something to be kind. If you RaK an item to someone in the park, total stranger, are they going to have to give you something. People keep saying "rules of a LOCKER RAK. There are NO rules in RAK. Locker TRADE make all the rules you want. When MW'ers RAK items on the MW app they don't expect anything in return. Why are the RAKs in the lockers different? - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 5:10PM
Because in a locker there is more than one winner! Not just one person take the load! - YoungDisney  369.0 #620 5:14PM
@ romec123, its clear that the kids were expecting to find goodies. They were there to pick up what PrinceCorey had left for them! Instead, someone cleaned out the locker. It's obvious that they had bad intentions. There was a picture of the stuff that was up for grabs, all beanie babies. If they cleaned out the pins and other goodies then they're thieves. How can you explain that to kids? "Oh a RAK means its okay for them to take what was left for you"? - PirateJedsMommy  173.0 #2356 5:15PM
I do think that the happy birthday RAK's with the notebook to write a message is fun. But don't leave anything besides birthday notes! It's useless to trolls and priceless for bday person! - Minnis2Society  369.9 #618 5:16PM
From the other post, it sounded like an MWer left something specific for the kids and let DisneyDancer know somehow. I think that's why the kids were sad. I could be wrong. But I agree with all the locker trade stuff or do away with it - cesium55  531.8 #390 5:18PM
@Pirate mom- what If the person that took the Prince Corey stuff hadn't read the post and didn't know it wasn't part of the locker RAK. How do you know ONE person took EVERYTHING? There are 1,000's of people looking on MW. You obviously do not understand what RAK is. I'm pretty sure this was NOT what DAHULA GIRL intended when she began the RAK movement. So be it. - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 5:19PM
And I think if you have something to give to the specific person they should find each other. There is always a chance it will get taken from a locker. - Minnis2Society  369.9 #618 5:21PM
Another problem with locker RAKs is if you're going to trade and post it for many to see, something you want might be traded before you get there like romec said and the person may not have known it wasn't for taking. Please let's just banana this and move on. (yes i realize my post right now continues it) - cesium55  531.8 #390 5:24PM
I'm sure that RAK's aren't about getting into arguments either... I didn't mean to attack you, you sent me a comment and I was simply trying to explain where I was coming from. Cause u "didn't get" me. In all fairness, if they knew about the RAK, we have to assume they saw the picture of the BEANIE BABIES. Everything else, they could've assumed it was for the owners of the locker. Whether it was one person or 10,000. Common courtesy, people. - PirateJedsMommy  173.0 #2356 5:27PM
It's called "RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS" If you do a RAK , it defeats the purpose to WANT something in return, no? ... Just sayin.. - ponyboy  22.7 #6881 5:29PM
Ohhhhhhhhh. I read as TRADE an item, not specifically trade beanie babies. This whole post is odd including the follow up post. People come on here to share happy thoughts. I personally did just that earlier today as I was feeling down. Seeing the pic of sad kids faces did not help. I'm moving on now. - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 5:33PM
"Sharing is caring" and it's interesting reading over how everyone is picking over the semantics of a RAK vs Trade vs what's posted. I would think testing for the code would solve alot of problems, even though it won't prevent the code from being shared between others who could still clean the locker out. - theDebsterM  138.2 #2912 5:36PM
I read that too romec. Plus most of these are trade among the many visitors to lockers. People can't expect the beanies to stay there. Aaaw nevermind. Why do I continue to respond ? - cesium55  531.8 #390 5:37PM
1- the word RAK is thrown around too much and it's losing its meaning. 2- it said "if you want" which means optional, not required. 3- However, I do think it's mean for someone to be greedy and take everything or a whole bunch of things. 4- BUT you don't know that only one person took everything, as there was an hour between PrinceCorey leaving some things and the next person saying it was empty. - TickledTink  370.8 #22 6:43PM
