Usually I could care less about what happens to things after we hand them out. I say usually. I remember when we handed out the Decoder cards on Indy, when we handed out the Pocahontas $1 bills, The "Merriest place on Earth" cards, even the Splash Mountain cards. The point was always to make kids smile. Recently (around the 50th) one of our Skippers drew an amazing map of the Jungle. It was done so well WDI approved it on the spot and we began to mass produce them and officially hand them out. Handing that to a little kid, made them smile, and made you feel amazing. It really was a "magical memory". So why so pissed you ask? Because I found those same free maps on EBAY... being sold for $15. I can somewhat understand things like old spiels... but these are maps we hand out to kids, for free. I also found a Survival Guide, that made me laugh... why... because that specific version I helped write! I probably would not have been as pissed about that except again they were selling a map with it. I posted this on here because those maps are exclusive to the Disneyland J.C. , Tokyo had (possibly still does) a map insert and Florida has the Fastpasses. That was our magic memory... and someone took one that could have gone to a little kid, really made a child's day. and whoever it was decided to try and make a buck. It is reasons like that... that makes Disney decide to pull the plug.
Old spiels, from the 60's, 70's, 80's even the old Survival Guide... I can understand selling. I have them (not from Ebay from my Skipper connections) and I used them to enhance my own trips. Those maps were designed for one reason... to make a little kid's day... and for me finding that auction really ruined it! I always read about how Disney should do this, bring back that, hand out that... why... so some punk can sell it on EBAY instead of letting their kid have it? Just a little pissed right now.
I also realize it is entirely possible that those responsible may be CM's. IF that is the case then it is yet another wonderful example of how low the hiring standards have become.
