    Re: Your Magical Moments...

    My favorite moment was at PFF. There were two seeing-eye dogs visiting, and ones owner had just died. Belle was the first princess and by the time she was done with the dogs the other two princesses had cleared the rest of the guests. Mulan and Cinderella came and joined Belle. We closed PFF for 10 minutes as the princesses played with the two dogs. One of them even fell asleep on Cinderella's dress. The lady in charge of the dogs started to cry. It was the first time the dog whose owner died had been so relaxed since she was with her.

    Re: Your Magical Moments...

    Okay so i made another moment yesterday. I was working High School musical pep rally all day yesterday. The second to the very last showing in sunshine plaza, i was talking and greeting guests and noticed two little ones, a brother and a sister playing jedi and i asked them if they were both good jedis and they told me that the brother was a sith and the girl was the jedi and then they had a little baby brother and they told me he was yoda, so before i could interact with them i had to go ask a question from a guest but when i returned we started playing good jedi and bad jedi, it was really fun. And then i gave their entire family honorary citizen buttons and wished them a wonderful day and to enjoy high school musical.

    I'm sure I've already posted this somewhere but this is one of my favorite moments I was able to create for a family. My mom was in town and I was working a later shift so we had breakfast at King Stefan's Banquet hall. (Yes, that's how long ago this happened and we didn't have to make reservations in advance!!!) There were two women at the table next to us with a little girl decked out in Minnie things. Ears, dress, socks and shoes. They were talking about how that day was extra special because they were going to meet Minnie. I, being nosy, asked if they were going to watch parade that day. They said yes and I showed them on their map where to stand. I told them that I worked with Minnie Mouse, making sure here bow and dress always looked pretty and would tell her where they would be standing for parade to wave at them.

    My mom and I left breakfast and I quickly called staging to request a certain role for parade. The family was at the last show stop, I looked and looked and couldn't find them. Finally I saw them, quite a ways back from where they were supposed to be. I quickly ran back to her and pulled her into the street to dance. Her face was so sweet! I know this was a dream she never thought would happen. My mom was watching everything and she honestly didn't think the family put the two together.

    The dad usually looks at me like 'how am I gonna get THOSE into the car?' but you should see the smile on the kid's face.

But the family almost always forgets and the balloons get popped and thrown away. A couple times I've waited until the VERY end of the night (just in case the family showed up for their balloons at 12:58) and then took the whole huge bunch out onto Main St. and given them to a child on their way home.

    :lol:

    My dad would be the one giving you a look like, "OH THANKS." He has a pretty small car.

    The cutest sight I ever saw was one time Snow White was walking around holding hands of two little girls, also dressed as Snow White.

    Another time, we were done working the first parade and on our way to lunch when we walked out the Pan Shop that I suddent saw a group of little girls, each dressed as the Princesses from Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, Princess Auroa, Jasmine, Pocahontas, etc.... It was so cute that we took a picture with them!!!

    That's cute. I used to go as Belle... In her blue dress. I had an Alice costume too. Alice, Belle... and... I think that's all. After I outrgrew my Belle dress, it ended.

    If I see a girl dressed as a princess I say hi respectively. I think they think I'm crazy! :lol:

    One little girl, one time, talked to me. I was in line for Small World, and was holding my Simba plushie. This little girl looked over at me and said happily, "Hey! Your holding my father!" I looked puzzled at her, and she held up her similar Kiara plushie and I laughed and said, "Oh, look! Max, she's holding Kiara!" It just so happened my sister had a Nala plushie. It was a nice moment.

    My favorite Magical Memory was when I was at HISTA exit waiting for the show to let out. In the middle, a little came out crying. She was scared. So, I bent down, told her it was only a movie, and pretend and gave her a honorary citizen sticker and told her she was brave and the little gril gave me a hug and a kiss on the cheek. That just made my day!!! I know that guests aren't suppose to kiss CMs on the cheek, let alone a little girl.

    AW!!!!! Did you keep the pinecone??? I'm such a sap (pun intended), I probably would have. I kept a rock my daughter gave me for years.

    Re: Your Magical Moments...

    Yeah i love giving buttons and other things. i have a couple favorite magical moments that i would like to share.

    The first one was on King Triton's Carousel of the Sea and at this attractions magical moments the cast member find a guest and make them a prince or princess and lead swimmer for their round of the swim. So there was a little girl that came in, it was her birthday so i made her princess and leads swimmer of the carousel and then before she could exit out to the ride i told her someone called her at the attraction looking for her so i gave her the phone and got goofy on the phone to sing her happy birthday. I love doing this sort of stuff it what makes me job wonderful! And its sad because alot of CMs i work with at the pier do not like doing this sort of stuff at all. They treat this job like a regular job and do as little interaction with the guests as possible and it annoys the heck out of me.

    Another story is that i was opening trails one morning and i was at the cable swings with another cast member and i was trying to help out this little girl who just barely made the height requirement to get onto the seat and before doing so she was showing me a pine cone she found and was telling me very excitedly how she found it and named it and how she would keep it forever. She was having a hard time and unfortantley her adult was not there at the moment to help her up and its against the rules to lift children up by ourselves so unfortantley didn't ride that time. But then she came around a second time and it took another cast member and i are best efforts to get her onto the seat and we took awhile but we assured her it was ok, we were going to get her on this one way or another, finally after some different trys we got her on and what not and she gave her pinecone that she found and named to me as a thank you and thanked her and said are you sure you want to give up your pet pine cone and she said yes this is for helping me.

    The Mickey Mouse one is way too cool. Gave me goose bumps.

    I try to make the guests laugh or smile by doing something special. I have a 'special' birthday song that I sing to guests when I see their birthday button. A lot of times, they smile and say thanks and walk on. At least they got sung to on their birthday.

    Teaching kids a magic trick that results in their finding a button is always heartwarming.
