TMSM’s Random Acts of Disney Kindness!


It’s Thursday, and time for our weekly feel good story, TMSM’s Random Acts of Kindness with a Disney twist. This weeks story comes from Main Streeter, Debbie W. Here’s what she had to say~

My husband and I took our two daughters, sons-in-law, and 6 grandkids to WDW last July, staying at POP. All of the kids flew to Orlando, while we drove with all the luggage. We got there early in the day, checked into our room and unloaded the car, waiting for the kids to get there via the Magical Express late that night. We had 3 rooms together in the 90s building in the “7000” section. In the early evening, there was all kinds of noise from all the groups of kids who were staying there and we contacted security, who said they would do their best, but we would probably have to call them again because this would go on for the time we were there. This was not good news. We had stayed at Pop 7 times prior to that, but were fearful that this could be our first bad experience at WDW. We met our kids at midnight at the front desk when Magical Express got there. (Grandkids were ages 9,9,7,7,5,2). The two littlest ones were already asleep in strollers. The cast member looked at our group of 12 and then looked at where we were staying and immediately said, “You won’t get any sleep there this week due to all the groups of kids who were staying at POP for a tournament. We can get you rooms in a quieter section of POP”. So, within an hour, we were all moved to 3 rooms in the 60’s section and had no further problems. I wish I would have gotten her name, but I was just so appreciative of her efforts, that I forgot. Just one of the reasons I love POP and WDW. ~Debbie Winger

Disney customer service is always great, and the Cast Members do their best to make sure that their guests are happy. We appreciate their efforts!

    In 2013, my two sisters and I walked through Main gate at Magic Kingdom, Disney World. We were celebrating our birthdays; my twin and I had just turned 61 and our sister, 67. We were so excited and I guess it showed because a cast member approached us, asking about our birthday badges. We explained we had come from different states to meet each other for our birthday celebration. After a few minutes of chatting, the cast member asked if we could come back to Main Street at 2:00 and be the Grand Marshalls of the afternoon parade. I am getting chills right now just writing about it. We stood, dumbfounded and about to cry in joy. We could not believe it. The rest of the morning, we felt we were walking on air, we kept checking the time so we wouldn’t be late. Upon arrival for the parade, we were taken behind the scenes and into the lead car. Photos were taken of us during the entire parade and we were given framed photos and a certificate. All of the characters in the parade greeted us after the parade and shook our hands. I am still shaking and laughing and crying to think of it. It was a once in a lifetime and we will never forget.
