Yesterday we decided to go to the Polynesian and check on prices for renting a pontoon boat, we have friends coming into town in May, and thought it would be fun to do with them while they are staying on site. After spending about an hour at the Poly, we decided to head over to Magic Kingdom for a few rides, a few pictures and some water play. Becca wasn’t feeling so hot, so she decided to head back to the van and wait for us.
After about an hour, we got a call from Becca. The van won’t start…. It seems that she turned on the van, not all the way, just until she could watch our Sirius XM Satellite TV while she waited… Well that drained the battery.
The good thing, she called when we were literally walking through the castle on our way back to the monorail to head to the van. The bad, we don’t have jumper cables and no idea what to do.
So we get to the van, and I walk back to valet at the resort and ask tell them what is going on. Within two minutes, he had called security, and told me to go back to the van and put the hood up. That security was on their way and would be able to give us a jump.
Seriously within 10 minutes, along comes security. He silently hopped out of his vehicle, grabbed a charger from the back and went to work. One minute later and we were up and running. Being how I have never had car issues while on vacation at WDW, I had no idea what would happen. I have to say I am beyond impressed with how quickly they were able to help us, and that they were even able to give us an assist. (BTW …. We are getting a new battery at WalMart tomorrow when we get the oil changed)
So that is my WDW Security to the Rescue story… what’s yours?
