How You Can Help Return a Lanyard to Its Autistic Owner

News of a red lanyard discovered at Disneyland Resort in California has gone viral. On Thursday, March 24, a Disneyland Cast Member discovered the lanyard and gave it to another Cast Member, who was working at a pin trading event. It contained four pins, but what sets it apart is the note that was attached. It states, “Hello! I am autistic, and I don’t talk much, but I would like to trade for Mickey Pins!” The Cast Members did as many Disney fans would expect, they filled up the lanyard with pins and added a Mickey Medallion. The owner did not return for the lanyard as hoped.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
