Okay, so earlier today just before Disneyland had closed Matt and I were in line for Peter Pan. While in line, a young girl(about 11 or 12) was talking to her mom and gestured to my lanyard filled with pins. I then chimed in and told her more about pin trading and could tell she was interested in pins more than she was sharing with her mom. I then went through my traders and picked a duplicate mic  More...

Great story. It reminds me when we went on vacation to DL back in August. We love pin trading and stopped by Big Thunder Ranch to check out the trading boards/books. There I noticed a young man by the name of Justin who was with the Kids of Courage organization. I noticed that he kept looking at my lanyard and all my pins that I had. The caregiver with him said "oh he likes your pins". I asked does Justin have pins to trade?.. he said yes but not as many as you have. So I asked "justin would you like some pins so that you can continue trading?" He said "yes".. So I pulled out a ziplock baggy of a bunch of pins that my son and I were going to trade on our trip. My son says mom give him the whole bag. So I gave it to Justin. His reply was "oh WOW all these for ME?" I said yes they are all yours.. Enjoy and trade them. I was surprised when he stood up out of his wheelchair and walked a few steps towards me and hugged me. He said "Thank you so much". It was so very touching to be able to pass on my pins to someone who could really appreciate them. Made our vacation that much better to know we passed on some disney magic to someone else. Brought tears to my eyes when he hugged me because I wasnt expecting it. - flores509  201.3 #2137 1:06PM
I love your story! My favorite part was when your son chimed in and said to give the whole bag! Bravo! - SammyJo  348.7 #787 2:12PM
Thanks SammyJo.. I love your story as well.. Way to pass on some of the Disney magic.. Kudos to you!! =) It makes me feel so great to be part of such a loving and caring community such as MW.. I love to hear stories and also share stories... I wasnt trying to one up you, promise... Just made me remember our last trip to DL. As for my son, he is 12 and loves pin trading.. I was so happy when he decided he wanted to give his pins to Justin. It really made my sons day. He said mom that is what disney magic is all about. I have more pins at the hotel. I want justin to have these pins. - flores509  201.3 #2137 2:24PM
Omg I'm crying. This is an amazing story! Thank you for your beautiful heart, and it makes me happy that your son is following in your footsteps. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #242 2:27PM
no way did I see you sharing about your story as one-uping mine. I am so happy you shared yours! I love having these moments and knowing I'm not the only one who does the same thing! You are definitely raising your son right and I hope my little bum in the oven would react the same way as your son! - SammyJo  348.7 #787 2:30PM
Love stuff like this! My 9 year old and I try to do something nice for a stranger every trip. I want her to realize how lucky we are to be AP's and go whenever we want, and that some people save for years to go once. - cinderelli  508.1 #490 7:27AM

Tagged in: Food  
i've heard so much about that pb&j soda, was it good? :) - OhanaPhoto  7151.5 #21 12:02PM
After hearing that the fried pickles kinda taste like fired zuccini, I've been re-thinking my original "no-way" stance. - GoofyMom77  1162.9 #194 12:10PM
they were so delicious! - SammyJo  348.7 #787 12:46PM

They never have the costumes for us grown up girls. :( - Sharkgrrl19  302.3 #1039 1:21PM
Oh they do, it's just at a different type of store. - madsdad  1868.2 #110 1:33PM

Hi everyone! Its been a while since I've been on. Tomorrow the Day Camp I work for is going to Disneyland! I'm so excited because this year I finally get to have the older age group. They are so excited and keep begging me for more trivia. So share with me one of your favorite facts or memories :) Thank you :)

The flowers in the tiki room have heart shaped tongues because Walt wanted them all to "sing from their heart". - LisaMouse7531  410.1 #636 9:02PM

From yesterday. My uncle and cousin visiting their doggies at the Disneyland Kennel :)

What is this Kennel you speak of i wanna go play with puppies!  - BooEve123  800.9 #285 5:23PM
one at DL, is my guess - misschurro  10066.8 #12 5:23PM
I may be mistaken but I believe you can only go in if someone in your party has a pet in the kennel. it is located to the right of the entrance to dl by the place to rent out dl strollers. - SammyJo  348.7 #787 5:28PM
BooEve, one of these days I will bring one of my " kids" to the kennel, and you can play with him or her! - Gia  802.2 #284 5:42PM
You're right Sammy. They're REALLY strict. Even though the woman knew us by the end of our trip last time, we had to show our slip every time we went in - KylaShea  632.7 #378 5:44PM
