Lost Sunglasses...Found!

I wanted to pass on a recent experience from our last trip.  We were at Magic Kingdom and onto the first ride of the day, Space Mountain.  As we were just leaving the SM building, Lesley, the wife, realized that she forgot her sunglasses on the ride.  She had left them in the little pocket they have inside the rocket car.  We told the Cast Member at the entrance and she called in to her co-workers.  The report was "No Problem"  they'll go through the rockets as they cycle through and to stop back in an hour.  Well, we stopped back and no luck.  There was a different CM who did not know about our issue so we asked him to radio to the other part of the crew, as the first CM did to see if they had found them.  No luck.  We did get the stop back in an hour spiel, but we stopped back about three hours later but no luck.   
A long time ago we had lost a phone.  The story we got was that every hour any lost items are then sent to the Guest Relations desk at the front of each park.  At the end of the day all items are brought to the lost and found office located over at the T&T center.  That time we were staying at the Poly so we double lucked out.  They found the phone and it was close enough to walk to get it. 
So with that in mind we stopped at Guest Service before leaving the Magic Kingdom that night.  Lesley left a very specific description with an address and we left.  We were driving out first thing the next morning so we had basically written these sun glasses off.  Did I mention that they were prescription and designer?  Of course, right?  Can't we for once lose the pair of sunglasses that we got at the dollar store?
A couple of weeks after we got home, look at the letter that came with the lost Sunglasses.
And people ask why we go back to WDW, this is one of many reasons.  You can count on the above and beyond from all of their staff.  Thanks Bob, and all others involved with getting the sunglasses back to us.

The "WGTWDW" Podcast Show #16

For our 16th show we once again spin the wheel of Attractions.  The wheel on this episode stopped on Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor.   We all agree that this was a great attraction.  The kids spill that I was once “That Guy!” and we throw out some ideas about freshening up the show down the road with the release of Monsters Inc. 2.

We then take a nice leisurely ride on the Liberty Belle in the Magic Kingdom.  This was our first time and with most things we do for the first time at WDW we were kicking ourselves for not doing it sooner.  We have the complete audio recording from our ride for your listening pleasure.  Did you ever notice that any audio that comes out of WDW always has a crying baby?  Well we’ve got ours.  We also got to watch and listen to a whistle duel between the train and the riverboat as we were passing the second Indian village.  Also listen for the breathing of the riverboat.  At some parts of the audio it’s very loud.  Headphones are suggested.
We then announce the winner of our contest from Show # 15.  Nathan S. answered the question: Who was the mother of Huey, Louie and Dewey?  The answer was Della.  Nathan was lucky enough to have the right answer and been picked out of the hat.  His Figment party pin is on it’s way to him.  Thanks to all who entered the contest.
Looks like Boston
