    Re: Random Acts of Kindness at Disneyland

    A long time ago back in the summer of 2003 when we came back home on vacation from Oklahoma, I was really into California Screamin. I had ridden it 7 times that day, and while I was about to get in line, a father with a couple of kids walked up to me and offered me a fastpass to go on it since one of his kids didn't want to go on it. So I took the offer, and got to go on it again. That was very nice of the man, now that I look back.

    Re: Random Acts of Kindness at Disneyland

    Sure, we do the everyday stuff like wishing folks a happy birthday because they were wearing their buttons and we always thank the CM's for their fine work, but this is probably our favorite example of a "random act of kindness":

    We were talking with a young couple while waiting in line for the Monorail a few years back. He was clean-cut and looked to be military. Turned out they were on their honeymoon. They looked to be in their early 20's. Nice kids!

    We continued talking with them while enroute to the T-Land station. They really didn't have any plans for their brief trip to the Park, and it sounded like they didn't have much in the way of a budget for it either. A trip to DL was it for their honeymoon (nothing wrong with that!).

    He was a newly hired police officer (my career is LE) and she was trying to be a teacher.

    As we were going our seperate ways, I asked them if they wanted to have lunch with us later on that day. They said sure. I told them to meet us in front of the Blue Bayou at a certain time later that day.

    They were waiting for us when we got there. They were concerned about the prices at the BB. I told them don't worry about it, that lunch was on us. A wedding present. After some convincing, they reluctantly agreed.

    They started to walk into the waiting side of the BB lobby, but then I told them that we weren't eating there. They had a funny look on their faces, and then the door to Club 33 opened. I invited them to follow us in. Their jaws dropped! hehe

    They had heard about the Club, but had never been inside.

    We enjoyed a very nice meal with them. We exchanged info and they went to enjoy the rest of their special w/e. We've kept in touch with them and have met them a few times at the Park since then.

    Sure, we know they enjoyed our meal together, but we also felt good about being a part of their special w/e.

    Re: Random Acts of Kindness at Disneyland

    As I was leaving Space Mountain some random guy came up to me and asked me if I wanted all his game tokens as he was leaving and didn't need them. Gave me the fuzzies inside.

    Re: Random Acts of Kindness at Disneyland

    Back in the summer of 2001, I spent a week at the DLR alone. (Minus one day where a friend came up to spend a few hours with me)

    Well, during that week I spent quite a bit of time in the Starcade. Mostly playing Crazy Taxi, jumping occasionaly to the classic Star Wars, Tron, or some of my other favorite games. During a high scoring round of Crazy Taxi, a Cm, who was working the Starcade at the time, came up to watch. We began taking turns playing the game trying to max out the score. As the week progressed whenever I would show up at the Starcade, he would pump Crazy Taxi full of free credits, and we would go to town.

    I always thought that was nice of him. It made what was a rather lonely week (though still great, I mean it's Disneyland...), more of a "friend"ly experience.

    Re: Random Acts of Kindness at Disneyland

    My group and I were about to watch the fireworks right in front of the castle and we let two little girls sit with us so they can see. It was their second time watching it, but the first time they saw it they were in the middle of Main St. and wasn't able to see Tink. Their mom was so thankful and she kept telling us that we were sweethearts. It was a good evening.

    Great thread!

    Apparently you have mistaken these people for your friends

    Re: Random Acts of Kindness at Disneyland

    One thing I always do and not just at the park. After I dry my hands in the restroom, I always pull or crank down paper for the next person to dry their hands with. (When my hands are clean but wet I hate having to fiddle with a knob to get to the paper.) I know this is a VERY small thing, but if someone did it for me it would make me happy. A small, simple act of random kindness.

    Re: Random Acts of Kindness at Disneyland

    My husband and I went for our honeymoon in June 2005. I bought the wedding ears and wore them all week, and everyone was SO nice. CM's pulled us to the front of the line or let us go through the FP line. We would get random discounts on food and souvenirs. And the hour plus wait at Goofy's Kitchen became 10 minutes, along with a discount on our bill with a note that said "Congratulations, love Goofy".

    It made our week really fun.

    I'm one that appreciates your act of kindness!

    I'd thank you for the numerous times that I have taken advantage of your generosity, but since your username indicates that you just might be female, I'd wage that you were not the one that has left the paper in a ready to use position in the men's room's that I have used!

    Oh well... What the heck, Thank You VERY much!

    Re: Random Acts of Kindness at Disneyland

    Thanks, but the true "WINNER'S" are those that have mentioned stuff that they do on a daily/regular basis.

    Daily kindness, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, means a lot more to more folks than just our one act ever could.

    Sure, this particular act was over the top, but not part of our daily acts of kindness, I assure you! LOL

    We'll stick with the "thank you's" to the CM's, the picking up of trash when we see it and wishing other guests a happy birthday when we see them wearing their button.
