Smile little known secrets

Earlier this year I found a thread that listed little known fun things you can do at Disney. It had things like waking tinkerbell, starting the fireworks, vets in the flag ceremony, where to buy drinks that gave souvenier cups or straws..... just alot of fun stuff like that. Anyone know where I can find that? We leave in 12 days and Im just now planning.

I got a free email report with a bunch of free things you can find in the parks at http://www.*********************.com/15FreeThings.html

I don't remember them all but there were things like:
* Getting a first Roller Coaster ride at Goofy's Barnstormer
* The campfire sing-along and outdoor movie at Ft. Wilderness
* Free velcro frog from Innoventions
* Free soda samples at Club Cool
* Sending animated e-postcards - my favorite was the one at Mission Space
* Watching the Disney scenes in the window displays at the Emporium in the Magic Kingdom

I wish I'd known about that! My 18 year old daughter and I rode Goofy's Barnstormer five or six times one night during Wishes.

Here's something I've heard about but haven't actually seen - the Disney transportation (buses, boats, etc) have transportation cards that are like baseball cards that you can get from the driver. I've heard conflicting things - 1.) that you can ask for them and 2.) that the drivers are only supposed to give them when a child is upset or being especially good. Does anyone know for sure?
