    Daughter was given a 'glass slipper' at DLR

    As my wife was getting off the StoryBook boat ride next to the Tea Cups, one of the cast members gave my 8 month old daughter a plastic 'glass slipper.' Is this something that Disneyland does for little girls often? Or was it just random? We were just curious if this is something Disney usually does, particularly on this ride. Thanks!

    Sounds like a random act of kindness from the CM. That's pretty cool!

    Re: Daughter was given a 'glass slipper' at DLR

    A friend and I were waiting at the handicapped loading area of Storybook so we could ride her friend's boat, and while we were there, a blind girl and her mom came up to ride. The lead gave her a glass slipper, and helped her "see" what it was. Pretty much made me and my friend cry, haha.

    It might be something that just Storybook does, as I've never seen any other Fantasyland attraction give out something based off that attraction.
    "Look there she goes, that girl is so peculiar...with a dreamy, far-off look, and her nose stuck in a book..." Yep, that would be me!

    I tend to post in a thread and forget to check it ever again, or even worse, I kill it. Yay me.

    Never seen this happen anywhere in the park before. Lucky girl. Thats a cool thing to have. She will be able to look back on it in years to come and remember what a fun time she had at Disneyland, you know, the time they gave me a shoe (haha).

    We'll probably put it on her bookshelf, but she'll never remember it (not nearly old enough). But my wife and I will, we both thought it was really awesome and a good end to baby's first trip to Disneyland. First trip of maaaaaany. :-)

    very cool.
    And like others,
    hadn't heard of this before.

    That is very cool and a neat story. Do you have a picture of it?

    Re: Daughter was given a 'glass slipper' at DLR

    is this something new that started? never heard of this before, but that's pretty cool! would definitely like to see a picture. when CMs are given things like these to hand out, can they really do it randomly or do they have to have a reason behind their decision? i assume the former, but if i was a CM i feel like i'd have a tough time if i could only give out one per shift or something

    Re: Daughter was given a 'glass slipper' at DLR

    I don't remember exactly when my friend and I witnessed this (as I go way too often to remember specific dates, haha), but it was definitely within the last 6 months. It looked like the lead went to a box near the operating console (perhaps where they also keep lost and found items, maintenance clips for the boats, etc) and pulled the slipper out, so they must have a few in there to make some magical moments.

    Re: Daughter was given a 'glass slipper' at DLR

    Based on the story about the blind girl above, I wonder if they have the slippers saved for children with disabilities? My daughter has to wear a helmet to help fix some problems with the way her head was growing. Anyway, I can't figure out how to get my photo to be the right size to upload, so I just put it on my flickr:

    Plastic or not, that is really cool. Thanks for the picture. My wife and I had anniversary buttons on once when we went on Storybook and we got little bottles of bubbles. That glass slipper is a really neat thing.
