Disney bus driver returns lost wedding rings then declines reward offer and is just a good human! Undoubtedly, we constantly see negative stories in the local news. Alternatively, a news anchor from WBRC in Birmingham, Ala. wants to share an amazing story.
‘Honest and nice people still exist’ Clare Huddleston is quoted as saying. Clare is the news anchor for Good Morning Alabama. She recently made a post on Instagram and her Facebook, and most importantly, on the TV news stations webpage. She goes onto explaining her story about misplacing her wedding and engagement rings. Losing them while staying at Walt Disney World Contemporary Resort. Clare had removed her rings to apply sunscreen to her daughter, “I took my rings off and put them in my lap. However, when the bus pulled up, I was in such a hurry to get all three kids and the stroller on the bus that I stood up – forgetting about my rings – and loaded the bus.”
If it happened to me, that would be the end of the story. Those rings would be gone. Unlike most people though, Clare had some pixie dust sprinkled on her that day. The bus driver for Disney, named Marty, happened to see the rings under a bench. He scooped them up. Then made sure to get them back to Clare. You can read the whole story below.
RINGS FOUND! This is a long story, but I want to give a shout out to a special bus driver at Walt Disney World and the entire staff at the Contemporary Resort ❤️
On Thursday we were heading to Hollywood Studios. I was putting sunscreen on Libby at the bus stop in front of our resort. I took my rings off and put them in my shirt in my lap. However, when the bus pulled up, I was in a hurry to get all the kids and the stroller on the bus. That I stood up – forgetting about my rings – and loaded the bus 😳
About 2 hours later we are standing in the Star Wars area of Hollywood Studios. Then realized my rings were missing. I was devastated. I knew exactly what had happened. 😔
Thankfully my parents had stayed behind that day to sleep in so I called my mom at the resort and asked if she would look at the bus stop for my rings and ask someone at the front desk if anyone turned them in.
Low and behold our sweet bus driver named Marty had found them under the bench at the bus stop and turned them in at the front desk!!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼. I could not believe it when my mom told me!!!
When my parents got on the bus to meet us at Hollywood Studios she tried to give Marty a monetary reward, but he would not accept it. She took a selfie with him and posted the story on her Instagram stories.
Almost a week later I’m still counting my blessings. Obviously, my engagement/wedding ring is super special to me, but the other ring is too because my grandmother gave it to me. I think my mom said it best in her post “honest and nice people still exist.” Thank you, Marty, for being honest and kind ❤️❤️
I wanted to add some inspring final words to this story, but Clare says it best on her report from WBRC.
When I shared his good deed on my Facebook page. Several viewers commented that a person can email Disney and compliment a cast member. I’m told those compliments and positive comments can go in their personnel file and be used when considering promotions, raises, etc.
I have emailed Disney’s guest services department and shared Marty’s story. I’m hoping he will be rewarded for his good deed.
Marty, if you read this, thank you for showing me and my family that honest and nice people still exist.
