    Seeing the same CM on different visits?

    Ok this is going to seem weird, but the last three times I have been to Disneyland I have come across the same CM in the main plaza in front of the castle at the turkey leg and chimichanga stand, I remember her because she is from Germany! I don't know her name but I always see her, has anyone else seen this CM? Or have an experience where they have seen the same CM on different visits? I am curious!

    There is a very helpful CM I've come across on several visits since maybe 2006 - he started at the old Disney Gallery upstairs in NoS, and then was at the Main Street location/Mr. Lincoln building after it shut down. Likely a location Manager, and always a pleasure to talk to.

    Before I moved to Southern California I would go to the parks every 4 months or so and I would ALWAYS see this same short guy working at Space Mountain! He's not there anymore though
    Grim, I lost her once; I'm not gonna lose her again.

    Something I'm curious about, we as AP's tend to see and recognize CM's time and time again, even if they were standing away from us.

    But do these CM's ever recognize us? Something I've always pondered.

    Re: Seeing the same CM on different visits?

    For me, I specificially remember Tiki Room CM's (one jumps out in particular and I think a good number of people would know who I'm referring to) but that's probably because they're have to go through the spiel at the beginning.

    Lol if you listen to Window to the Magic, a lot of CM's recognize Paul Barrie since he's there so often, probably the same for Andy Castro and Norman Gidney as well since they are frequent visitors.

    That depends on how often you visit us and on how memorable your appearance is. If you look at the numbers, we see a lot more of you than you see of us. That can make it hard to remember people. I can think of a number of AP's who I recognize when they come to visit though. There's even one with widespread first-name notoriety though I won't say any names.

    Re: Seeing the same CM on different visits?

    We would see the same bellman at the Disneyland Hotel every time we checked in. In fact, we requested that he carry our bags and him and I would chat away about Disneyland Hotel history. Mike started at the Disneyland Hotel in 1968 and just recently retired. One day he said to me, "you know, nobody has ever written a book about the Disneyland Hotel's history." That is what planted the original seed for my books.

    Re: Seeing the same CM on different visits?

    I talk to CMs a lot.

    A lot of the older ones, vs the college kids are the ones that stuck around. I know a bunch and a bunch know me, and a few know my niece and nephew too. A few I have an out of park relationship with.

    I seem to recognize a lot of people and I have had some recognize me back, usually it's because I don't take stairs, so the CMs over at CA Screamin know me well since I'll ride it a few times each day while I'm there. Also, I was surprised that a ST CM recognized me and even asked how my arm was doing. I don't remember having a significant interaction with her so that was a nice surprise. I guess it helps that I had fun, memorable arm casts...

    We we also have a character who we now know well and who adores my niece, and we know one of her handlers and say hi to him when he's out, even if he's not with her. Again, having a cute kid and a fun cast imprints you into people's memory!

    During August 2012 Around Fronteirland I saw a cast who was sweeping and while we were at our table he interacted with us asked how our day was,which rides,we rode,and introduced himself. Then on March 2013 I found him again but he didn't remember me

    Re: Seeing the same CM on different visits?

    I've had the same server at Cafe Orleans twice in a year. She was my server in March 2012 and again in October. I saw her still there in May 2013 but I wasn't sat in her section.

    I also saw the same CM working Indiana Jones twice in a year.

    At the French Market, there's a CM named Tom. We met him 2 or 3 visits ago and we see him every time. He always remembers us and he's has a great sense of humor. It's always fun to talk to him.
