They work everywhere including oversees!
Suprised she gave them up due to them now being specially designed and rare, but good for her!
Here's a new-age story of a child-cast-member interaction that I witnessed. Some kid at Disney's Hollywood Studios was throwing a fit and crying her eyes out because she wanted ice cream. The mother tried explaining that they were about to have dinner. Well, the kid wasn't having it, and continued making a scene. The little brat was far too old to be throwing fits, and after a while the mother simply ignored her while the kid went on.
Finally, a cast member approached the girl, asking, "Mickey wants to know why you're so upset. He doesn't like to see people crying."
The kid didn't answer coherently, but merely kept screaming and blubbering, with the words "ice" and "cream" occasionally uttered.
After a while, the CM cracked: "Well, let's see if Mickey can't get you some ice cream."
Unbelievable. They caved into her unreasonable demands and against the mother's will.
Regardless, your story was very nice.
An example that I saw not too long ago was that Disney Stores were starting to hold events in their stores that include doing arts and crafts and other things. One of them was a Princess Party in which they could create their own crowns, learn princess ettiquite, and other things. Well, many guests complained on facebook because Cinderella or any of the other princesses did not make a visit. The Princesses were booked for Norway at EPCOT so they couldn't come :)
The Daily Beast, a news website, allowed a writer to bascially slam the Disney Cruise line. I would love to wonder how her demands could be met.
Well, for the level I would join, you got 6 passes, but with only my daughter and myself, I always had 4 passes left over. You could only use the passes on one exact date of the PBS stations choice.
The first time we went, I decided to give the 4 tickets away. So every year, we would look for a family with small children and ask if they already had tickets. If they said no, my daughter Stefanie gave them the 4 tickets. Talk about being surprised, they couldn't stop thanking us.
We did this for a number of years, until the economy got bad, and I could no longer sponsor the PBS station. But what a good feeling it gave us, to be able to help someone else out.
