I want to spread a little YOAMD magic myself


#1

Hi everyone! I know i haven’t posted in quite some time. I have been so busy at work the passed few weeks preparing for a move to a new building and then last week i got PRK surgery (lasik surgery but not lasik). Anyhow, i am now under 30 days to go until my trip and i was thinking that i would like to spread some YOAMD magic while i am on my trip.

But i have no idea what i should do. Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking along the lines of making a card of sort and attaching a pin to it and handing them out or something.

Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance…

I think that sounds like an AMAZING idea!

So, do you want to spread some magic to Cast Members or to WDW guests?


#3

You can start by sending me some Airline Tickets. :laugh:

Well i was thinking of probably sticking to Cast Members. Although guests could be fun too… but it might be a little awkard approaching guests.


#5

i think it is a wonderful idea


#6

I think it would be wonderful and they would really appreciate it… I never really thought about the cast members (I know Im bad) until my SIL started working there. They put up with some silly stuff.


#7

I’m sure the CM’s would love it! Great idea!


#8

You know, we were thinking of doing the same type of thing! I think it’s a great idea. Spread the Disney love! :heart:

I think thats a great idea… Very thoughtful

I think that’s a WONDERFUL idea. I would stick to the Cast Members only though 'cause I’m like you, it’d be kind ackward to approach a guest and they might think that you’re actually part of the Dream Team or something.

I do think the CM’s put up with a lot of, well should I say, crap from a lot of rude, obnoxious people. I think it would be exciting for them to actually receive something thoughtful from a nice guest.

I would love to see pictures of the project you come up with so I hope that if you decide to go through with it you’ll post your pictures here.

Ok, so i read somewhere, it might have been on here or another thread about a husband and wife who bought little bottles of maple syrup that was from their hometown and gave them to cast members as little thank yous on their trip.

So i created some cast member appreciation cards and i am going to attach them to some taffy bars that are made here in the cincinnati area and give them to the cast members that i feel went out of their way to help make our trip enjoyable. Once i get the cards printed and receive the taffy i ordered i will take some pictures and share them with you.

And i will also hopefully be able to share some reactions from the cast members in my trip report when i get back from the trip.

Brandon- I must say that you are a star… that is a beautifull and brilliant idea and I applaud you for being so thoughtfull! I just wanted to say that I was also blessed by your generosity and think you are just a star of sorts… GO YOU!!!

One thing we do is get a whole bunch of good, cast member pins on eBay at a cheap rate (if you get them that way you get a bunch of them with hidden mickeys etc. for like $2 each) – and then trade those with Cast Members. Not only do we get pins for trading at a cheap rate, we can give nice pins to the CMs rather than “junk” pins, and they are so relieved to see something which is not a “cheapie” pin, esp at the end of the day. They are often baffled at first to see us trading a hidden mickey pin for some less rare one, too!

Fabulous idea!! Have fun with it!!

Hi Brandon! what a lovely thoughtful idea- and nice to see you back on MB!


#16

I love the idea of bringing something from where you live, like those people who brought maple syrup, to spread a little magic. I wanted to do it last August but I couldn’t think about what I could bring from CT that wouldn’t melt as I carry it around the parks. I need to try and brainstorm for this August’s trip.
