Received a commendation pin last night for something that was done back in June. If anyone can spare a Custodial Can Do sticker (that's the commendation pin) it would be greatly appreciated. (I was working the night they were released) Will gladly trade for any of my duplicates.

#RAK - Seems everyone is installing solar systems these days. 500 credits to the first MWer to identify where this solar system can be found.

Is it Tarzan's treehouse? - thatgirljenn  1844.7 #100 12:14PM
Ding ding ding. We have a winner! It's right by the record player that play (even if ever so faintly these days) the Swisskapolka from Swiss Family Robinson as an homage to the original tree house theming. Your credits are on the way! - Melody_CM  23026.9 #2 5:22PM

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  4.3 #23244 7:18PM
Btw, pls do not enter me in the RAK. I just love to read the stories!  - Saldogmom  4.3 #23244 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  10382.9 #9 5:55PM

RAK - giving away 2 Company D admittance tickets to 2 MWers who tell us their favorite Disney character, and why. Each ticket admits you and a guest once in June to shop for discounted Disney merchandise without being accompanied by a CM. Winners selected in a few days. I hope you win!

Thank you for this RAK. I would love to be added. I love Princess Tiana. I admire her optimism, work ethic, kindness, and love of family. She is beautiful role model for little girls.πŸ’šπŸ‘‘πŸΈ - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2297.7 #73 3:50PM
Wow great Rak. I will share my story. I have always loved Chip and Dale growing up but they are my favorite (Dale especially). I was on my 2nd solo trip this past January and still feeling awkward about it. I saw Chip and Dale in DCA taking pictures. I got inline despite my embarrassment of being alone. I gave the CM a line that my family was "else where in the park" (πŸ˜‚).   Chip and Dale made me so welcomed and appreciated. The CM took tons of pics of them hugging and kissing me πŸ˜‚. It was awesome. Those pictures are some of my all time favorite. In addition, recently had a character breakfast for the first time last week and saw Dale. I told him he was my favorite and soon after he presented a red rose to me (which I will keep forever ) πŸ˜‚. Thanks for allowing me to share this special memory.  - tvdisneylove  130.9 #3120 12:48PM

How amazing please add me! My favorite character is Mickey. My love for him started young and in turn he has become a symbol of hope love and happiness. Some of the darkest times in my life I look through my Disneyland albums and see my picture with Mickey and automatically feel a little better :) thanks  - excmdlgurl  398.3 #600 9:46AM
I love love love the Evil Queen! She is edgy and once even told me to get to the back of the line- i did not know where that was but I could not stop laughing. She asked me if I was mad (crazy for laughing) and I said wrong character that would be the mad Hatter who then walk up and it went way to funny after that.  - Plumiegirl  10382.9 #9 10:09AM

Star Wars Land visual update

The tunnel was part of the roundhouse, for train storage, from original train  route, at opening. Had more recently been used as workshops after roundhouse was moved & expanded.  As of Wed. when talking to to cast members, it's unclear if the tunnels will survive to be part of the new Star Wars area.  The long white building was being crunched by several large backhoes  Wed afternoon  - Dvstock  147.8 #2832 12:41PM

Thank you all for sharing! Maybe you can make some of those dreams come true! Winners are KrystalColors, AlyssaDisneyland, and Evilemohand. Congrats! Thanks again! 500 credits will be given to one MWer tomorrow evening Tue 4/5 who answers the question, "what is your dream job, and why?" Can be a role at the Disneyland resort, but doesn't have to be. Thanks for playing!

I feel like I am working my dream job! I am a Special Education teacher for students with moderate/severe disabilities. My class is Kindergarten thru 2nd Grade. I absolutely love the kiddos and tho it can be challenging at times, it is what I love to do! ❀️ I have one student from my first year teaching who graduated last year from High School and I felt so honored and blessed that I was invited to her graduation party!  - EvilPrincess  396.9 #604 10:20AM
