Best collecting experience in YEARS.

I took my 4yr.old to DISNEY.
Someone made me aware that when you ride the Monorail,
you can ask the conductor for a trading card.
I forgot to ask 2 years ago when i went.

When i got my card this year, imagine my surprise when it said it was part of a 27 card set. I inquired, and found out you can get a different trading card on each of the boats, busses & monorails. So my boy & i started 'the chase.'

This wasn't about expensive autographs, rarity, or even condition.
This was 'back to basics.'
It felt like my childhood experience again.

About 90% of all Transportation drivers were aware of the program;
but only 50% of the drivers actually had cards to hand-out.
And often, they had been in their pocket for days getting beat up,
waiting for someone to come ask.
It was quite the hunt, a whole lot like Halloween Trick-or-Treating.
"Hello, do you have a Transportation Card?"

We would go a half dozen drivers in a row with a 'dry-spell,'
but then find one that had 3 different cards to choose from.
Anyways ... here's the cards ...
I never got them all, but built memories around the ones i acquired.









HINT: You don't actually have to ride the Transportation; just find the driver.
We rode busses 90% of the time, and knocked out the 3 bus cards right away.
Only 1 bus driver had a non-bus card (monorail).

... And while we're at it:
If you waited in line to get a picture with the RALPH character, you got a card:

Cool! I like the Electrical Water Pageant card. I think there are also Jack and Sally "signature" cards being given out during their meet & greet at Mickey's Halloween Party.
