What I'm Most Thankful For at Disney

Welcome to those of you joining me from Disney In Our Blood and those of you just hopping aboard, I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

 There are so many things I'm Thankful for at Disney. I know I have some of my best memories and that's all due to some very special moments. Things like great Cast Members who are really kind and know that their job is very important. They represent the parks and the feelings that go on at Disney. They can do many special things to add to your experience and some are so sweet, you want to hug them.
For one, when I lost one of my most valuable Disney Pins, we searched and then asked one of the Cast Members if anyone turned it in, no one had. So the cast member gave me one to make it up to me. I was very surprised and felt very special.
It's all about the smile - Saratoga Springs Resort
It always pays to have a smile on and always be friendly at the parks because, you never know when someone might give you a special token. We always get extra stickers and we've gotten to ride in the front of the monorail and get a bus driver's transportation business card and the monorail one too.

I am thankful for the Characters who payed extra special attention to my kids when they were little and dressed in their favorite character. It meant a lot to us that they got extra time with them and some really cool pics. 

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is 400 Miles To Disneyland

  1. Disney Castmembers make the parks so special. I'm glad you've had so many wonderful experiences.

  2. I love the conversations I have with Cast members and characters. That little extra time makes all the difference.

  3. Great things to be thankful for, Diane! We've had some amazing character interactions over the years as well. We've also ridden up front with the monorail driver, and met some lovely Cast Members who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make our trips special. For our next visit, I bought my kids special autograph books that have room allotted for Cast Member signatures (as well as regular character ones) - I think that's so neat!

    The cast members always make our trips so very special. They have a way of spreading pixie dust to make any problem go away.
