A few years back a family from New Zealand was asking if someone on MW could get a picture of their family tile in the esplanade. I was walking around searching for it and a DL security guard came up and asked if I needed any help. I thanked him and told him I'm ok and explained what I was doing. He then helped me search for another five minutes or so until he found it. Maybe that's a small thing,  More...

A CM experience that I observed aboard the Disneyland Railroad. A teenage girl and her parents boarded and something caught my eye. It was her white cane. She was visually impaired. She sat in the row closest to the entrance. It was the train car with only two long rows. A conductor called, "All aboard!" And we were off! This conductor stayed on the running boards and made small talk with the family. Being observant, he started verbally describing the scenery in detail and mentioning unique things. You could see her visualizing his words in her mind. As soon as I reached Main Street station, I hopped off and went straight to City Hall. I noted the CM's name and reported his exemplary behavior to a supervisor. I just thought he'd get a "gold star" in his file. No. She informed me he would be presented with a certificate in front of his coworkers in a ceremony. Wow! I had no idea.  He so deserved it!  - Saldogmom  0.8 #72480 7:18PM
Btw, pls do not enter me in the RAK. I just love to read the stories!  - Saldogmom  0.8 #72480 10:11PM
Back in the original DCA, my son and I were eating faces into our tortillas and then went to the bread factory. My son was a very young autistic boy and he was trying real hard to tell the employees it was his birthday. One of the CMs came out and gave him a mini Mickey sourdough bread. No one could touch nor eat of this special loaf. He ate it all at home and I don't think he was hungry the rest of the day. It was just really nice and special.  - Plumiegirl  10358.3 #9 5:55PM
PS: if I get lucky I will take another person from this list to the C/D - Plumiegirl  10358.3 #9 9:19PM
So many CM & Character  , but the best for me was that when I renewed my pass one time, the CM in training only deducted one of two day passes that I had. I didnt.realize it until the next morning. I couldn't get a hold of anyone by phone so I went there with daughter and friend in tow for the πŸ”·lane. I spoke with the lead and after about 45 minutes of research, it was all resolved. She then gave the girls entry passes for the day, $55 in food vouchers, and she let them each pick a ride fastpass. I had not planned on going into the parks that day as the girls did not have passes. It really made their day.  for this amazing RAK. TY - Quiweez  861.3 #229 12:26AM
Hi Melody. My favorite memory made by a castmember was when a friend and I went to Star Wars and we were just being polite guests per usual, and this cast member was so happy with us, because we were the first people on her shift that were being polite. We were happy to be because it's the right thing to do. But she insisted that she give us a special fast pass to Big Thunder Mountain to use that night. It made all of us so happy, and we went to city hall and thanked her. She was amazing that night, and it felt really great to have that experience. Please Add Me to this RAK and thank you for doing this! It's highly appreciated!!!  - Disneypirategirl  294.5 #1001 12:50AM

Thank you for your wonderful post! I think being there on opening day and seeing the castle for the first time would've been absolutely incredible!! And, knowing that Walt was there, on the resort. I definitely would have walked up to him, said hello, and asked for a photo. I probably would've been wearing a nice soft, lemon yellow dress and brought a cardigan for later. (Love how mid-century Tomorrowland is! Those chairs and shade providers😍) thanks!😘 - misschurro  7634.3 #12 10:02AM
