    I was told by a CM friend of ours that Disney really does take notice of this and it sure helps the recipient when the time comes around for promotion etc. :yes:

    We ran into this at AK - Tusker House. The sous chef gave my ma his card. She emailed him a big thank you. I'm sure he probably forwarded the email on (I always forward my boss the kudos I get LOL!). I think all the higher-ranking CM's have business cards. Also, Guest Services can pass on any information.

    We emailed our thanks because we had such a wonderful experience at the Hoop de doo revue. I explained how my children had lost their father while he was on tour in Afghanistan and my 14 year old son hadn't laughed in a while but at the show he had such a great time and was even singled out for one of the gags. A Disney executive personally called us to thank us for sending the email and assured us that the cast members would be told how they touched our lives.:yes::yes::yes:

    It's wonderful that you took the time to let WDW know that the CMs were so good. :yes:

    A fairly quick and easy way to let Disney know that a CM has been great is to get the name from the CMs badge, the date and time and location and let Guest Services know as you are exiting the park.

    If, as you experienced, it's a resort and not a park, then you can speak with the front desk, they will put the information forward.

    An email or letter is incredibly powerful. It's tangible evidence that you cared that much. :yes:

    I'm so very sorry to learn about the loss of your children's father. :hug2:

    Absolutely! Another little thing that never fails to amaze me, the CMs response to a return greeting. Usually they'll ask how your day is going. If you in turn ask them how their day is, you'll be so surprised at their appreciation.

    CMs work hard and are expected to always be "on." I know I couldn't do it!

    It's great to say thank you for those wonderful moments they provide.
