So this evening, in my entitled AP way (sorry, couldn't resist), I headed down to the park at around 8 with a couple of friends. We strolled Downtown Disney for a little while, then headed into DCA to bug our friend working grouper on Stinger and to ride Soarin'. Once we left that ride, we dashed across the Esplanade and headed up to the Main Street Railway Station to watch the fireworks with about five minutes to spare before the show.
There we learned that the seating was reserved for tour guests; however, there were several empty seats. I grabbed a cast member who was leading one of the tours and asked if we might take some of the seats if they were still empty at the beginning of the show. She asked me to wait a moment, so I resumed my position, which wasn't bad, but would have meant kneeling for the whole show. Then she came over and directed me and my friends to the front bench in the very center.
It was an AMAZING view. Completely and utterly perfect. It's been a little while since I've watched the show from Main Street, and I had forgotten what a great experience it is when viewed from the intended angle. I was literally sobbing from the beginning until the Pirates segment, because it was just that good.
After the show, I went back and found the CM, thanked her for being so dang cool, and took note of her name. I was in an exceptionally good mood for the rest of the evening, and I knew it was because the fireworks had totally made my night. So, on my way out, I stopped by City Hall and filled out the compliment form as a way of repayment.
So, there's my story. What CM experiences were so good that you took the time to let City Hall know?
