#Uncle Walt - Wednesday night, kneeling down, scraping gum off the cobble at the foot of the mighty Matterhorn, suddenly felt such a powerful connection with Uncle Walt. A little like wiping a smudge off his jovial cheek. It was wonderful.

You must have some amazing experiences. Thanks for keeping our parks beautiful. That was of the utmost importance to him. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1444.4 #110 10:10PM

Add Me please. Mine is when i was still in the Philippines. Christmas time, we always go a certain department store, where they have their annual Christmas Display (life size structure, it is like the Its A Small World Clock, but this is all decor with Christmas motif, and the music is just heavenly). It is sad when they close that store, and when i moved to the states (i heard they did revive that christmas tradition in a different area). Also, it was in the Philippines. My family always have a Christmas lantern displayed in our house (it is shaped as a Star, a representation of Star of Bethlehem and our house is full of Christmas lights!). Then we have a family meal during midnight (idk why we Filipinos like to have a midnight meal, but it is a tradition called Noche Buena). Kinda sad now that i am away with my family (i work in DC, some of my family are in Cali, some are still in the Philippines). But yeah, i always try to go home to Cali during Christmas time. For us Filipinos, Christmas is the biggest event we celebrate (we don't have Thanksgiving, and the Halloween time is mostly celebrated as to honor the dead, All Souls Day) - otilegna  2384.8 #60 4:31PM
Angelo this sounds so much like our Christmas in our family as I was younger. We always had lights every where and the lit star was always present as a tree topper shinning down on all. We always got together at usually my grandmas where we had a meal at the gathering then went to mass at midnight on Christmas Eve. We do do Halloween but at catholic school we also celebrated All Souls' Day and that was in nov 1.  - mmddgp  790.2 #8 5:46PM
that is nice to know Gayle. do you still do that tradition now??? i am a catholic and pretty much Philippines is a catholic country, so the tradition is so strong! it is kinda awesome that my sister and mom still decorate a star lantern at their place (mine, is unfortunately hard to do it).  - otilegna  2384.8 #60 6:07PM
We still have lots of lights and it is either present with stars or Angels. We still have family dinner on Christmas Eve but unfortunately we don't always do midnight mass. I do have to say that all our churches around here do trees inside and are all so beautiful and many do the life size mangers in the outside of the church with lights and the star of Bethlehem. My gram is gone and my mom and dad are older so I try to the best I can with my kids and grandkids, tradition wise. I did not know that about the Philippines. Thank you - mmddgp  790.2 #8 7:38PM
@mmddgp and @otilegna, Catholic here too and I was just thinking on my way home tonight that All Saints/Souls Day is on a Sunday this year so doubly purposeful πŸ˜ƒ - ThinkTink23  44.2 #4906 8:10PM

Please add me for a great RAK! We are unfortunately unable to make it for this time of season. Our favorite family tradition started after my grandfather passed away. We all get together for Christmas Eve my grandma makes tamales & the yummiest Puerto Rican food. We all dress up in Xmas pjs & stay up watching my grandpa's favorite movies & just talk about him go through pictures & have a great time.. Until midnight when we open presents - mandas1989  187.3 #2127 4:16PM
I also promise not to sell. This is too amazing I'd cherish it forever  - mandas1989  187.3 #2127 4:17PM
Oooooo! Who could ever THINK of selling this awesome RAK!?! Ok, so in our family, my boys told me to tell you about how even though they are 14, 16, 20 & 22, grandpa still hides Easter eggs for them around his house and on the park behind his fence. (It's always fun watching grandpa figure out where he left the last ones!😜). Grandpa/grandson bonding that has lasted 22 years!!!!!!! - TinkerSchelle  1874.4 #85 10:02PM

Told me that next month he will have worked at Disneyland 60 years! I've heard so much about Oscar but never  More...

#RAK - RAK HAS CONCLUDED - 500 credits to SnowKitty and 50 to everyone else who contributed. Thanks one and all! To enter, please share the top 2 or 3 qualities you appreciate in a Disney Cast Member, and how you can tell when a CM has them. (Note: There might be more than 1 winner selected before the Tue 9/8 sticker night.) Good luck!

3 qualities key in a CM for me are 1. Creativity. CMs deal with all kinds of guests everyday and to make the trip special, sometimes they gotta think on their toes. 2. Spunk. CMs have to totally own their roles! And since they entertain thousands of people everyday, their game face has to be on even when they are feeling less than peppy. And 3, I think the most important is sincerity. It's the things they do when they think people aren't looking. The kind gestures and extra mile type things That make fond memories and lasting Smiles. That makes the magic real. CMs are too awesome at that 😁 - LindseyanaJones  225.9 #1630 7:56PM
