For those who go to the parks regularly, do you have a favorite cast member? I'd have to say Lonnie at the American Adventure at Epcot does an awesome job and I'm glad he's working whenever I walk around World Showcase.

Anybody else?

TeenaS from these boards ranks high on my list, she's at Beach Club. As for folks I encounter almost daily, Patrick at Le Cellier, Carl at the Rose & Crown and Dana and George at the Adventurer's Club.

Dirk and any of the other Voicers in the Voices of Liberty cast. I cried last year when I heard Ryan was leaving.

:) Not at the parks...but Art the greeter at Beach club:goodvibes

I do now! But I don't know her name because she is a performer. She was a cowgirl at Woody's Cowboy Camp earlier this month and she went out of her way to save my DS (and me) from a meltdown of mythical proportions. She's my hero!

I took a photo of her (for WDW I.D. purposes) and sent a letter to WDW to praise her. I got a call back from WDW and they assured me they would track her down to give her the recognition she deserves.

For those of you with good experiences, I encourage you to send a letter so your favorite CM knows your appreciation and it will get on their file at WDW and hopefully impact a raise for them.

Folks with complaints tend to be more vocal so I like to let them know when they are doing something right to balance it out.

When I was a little girl, there was a WONDERFUL greeter at either the Yacht or Beach Club. He was an older gentleman, dressed as a captain I think. (It wasn't Art, lovely as he is). I remember him being the best part of finally getting to Disney! He was so lovely and kind. Does anyone remember him? Or if he's still around the Yacht Club?

I edited this to clarify 'when I was a little girl' - was about 15 years ago. (Wow, that was scary when I typed it out!)

Linday who works at EPCOT as a Super Greeter - she's wonderful and we love her!

02-25-2008, 01:18 PM
Kari; she works at country bears and on Tom Sawyer Rafts. She's awesome!! The kids love her.
Also Matt Cramm, from Great Movie Ride, he has been a driver of the tour and is now a gangster. The best Mickey Mouse imppresion!!

Haavard and Tony who work in the Norway pavilion.

Everyone who works at the Adventurers Club.

Bill, say hello to George and Dana.

Joan from the POR front desk. :goodvibes

Patrick at LeCellier is AWESOME!!
I also really love the guy in front of the Buzz Lightyear ride, but I can never remember his name--always joking around with everyone.
There is also a lady by the name of Maria or Marta (can't remember) at the Barnstormer that is ALWAYS nice to my DD--I think she remembers us from our different trips--weird huh?!?!

02-25-2008, 04:10 PM
RICHARDD!! the greater in the grandfloridian!! i absolutely lovee him n he always remembers my name every yearr.

02-25-2008, 04:14 PM
Our favorite cast member works at the Trails End To Go counter. I believe her name is Missy.

02-25-2008, 04:42 PM
I've moved this over to the Theme Park community board.

There's Art, of course. Given how much time my mother spends talking with him (they even exchange gifts from time to time), he's pretty much a family friend now.
Past that I'd note a couple servers. Titi at the Brown Derby was wonderful, and Samir at the Yauchtsman Steakhouse is great.
We also think highly of Philip, the current manager of the Beach Club.

Minerva - mousekeeping at Poly - she is one amazing woman and we were blessed to have her 3 years in a row!!!

And this one older gentleman (his name escapes me) he works security late night, and they move him around resorts every year, but we will bump into him at least once every trip, and he always remembers us! (we only get to Disney once a year) We have seen him at Poly, Coronado, and POR.

Naturally Art is my favorite. Charlie the bartender at Narcoossees ranks up there a close second, along with Luke a server at Jellyrolls. (although not Disney)...

Jamie in Off Kilter. Why you ask? He plays the bagpipes, of course. There's nothing like a cute guy in a kilt playing the bagpipes.
