For me, it was on the Wild Africa Trek at Animal Kingdom last November when it was just me and my two friends (also zookeepers doing it) so rather than the formal tour that they normal do, our two guides and us just got to talk shop and we learned a lot about the nitty gritty of how they care for their animals and everything. The tour is always well-worth the price, but getting to be the only 3 on it was amazing
When I rode star tours like 22 times in a row. ( This was before tsl and GE and I don't like RR and TOT) I got a special celebrating button from the cast member.
A really fond memory I have is walking in Art of Animation and seeing character training going on in the lobby and having one of the best character interactions I've ever had with any character when I saw King Louie and we started doing a monkey-see-monkey-do thing.
It's a favourite now, it wasn't at the time...
Hulk recall one day spent at the Disneyland Resort with purpose: To experience every single ride in both parks in a single day.
Getting to view Galaxy's Edge early. I am a big Star Wars fan and luckily a family member, who was a cast member, asked me to be there +1. I got to ride MF:SR 5 times in a row and just explore the whole land. Yes, I did wish there was more things to do in the land, but it was just an amazing day overall. Besides the Glaxay's Edge preview, we went on a few more rides, had dinner at Lamplight Lounge, and just enjoyed the magic of the park.
Cramming me and 4 of my close friends into a single log at six flags great America (we were all 18-19 at the time) !
Probably one time when I was young with family at Islands of Adventure. It was February and very cold (by Florida standards)but the water rides were still open. We rode Popeye's 8 times in a row without getting off in between rides with the boat all to ourselves. Went right to the hotel afterwards to change into warm clothes and then back for an evening in the park.
I got to be at EPCOT the day of the 30th and 35th anniversaries. The 30th was especially cool, there was an Imagineering presentation featuring Marty Sklar, and a special presentation at the America Gardens theater featuring some park VPs. I was apparently the only person in attendance with the gumption to approach any of them and say hello lol. I spoke with Erin Youngs for a moment, she was VP of EPCOT at the time. I thanked her for acknowledging us purists and kindly asked her not to forget what made the place so special. Both of those visits were planned purposely for the special dates but then by chance I ended up being able to ride Malestrom on its last day of operation.
