I work at Disney World as a tour guide! I used to work Fantasyland Attractions; my second College Program was at Epcot as a Character Attendant. I'm effervescent. The title of my blog is taken from Meg Cabot's series, The Princess Diaries. Specifically, Volume 10: Forever Princess: "I know. I'm pathetic. A pathetic unicorn."
While sitting in the break room, we were listening to a fellow CM complain about the madness the store falls under when we get rain and everyone just storms all over the place.
Me: “Ugh, humans.”
Ariel walks up behind us with her vending machine treat: “The human world is a mess.”
DAN: When you do interviews, you’re faced with the choice to either be the most boring person on earth or just get ridiculous things written about you from time to time
JOSH HOROWITZ: Sometimes it might be good to be boring
DAN: It might be but I just get bored of myself

The only thing that confuses me about this schedule is the last two days- why would Dan go back to Los Angeles if he’s already been there this week?
A few days ago, a young-ish mom and her young daughter were waiting to meet Minnie Mouse. Her daughter was holding a beat up Care Bear, whose ear was falling off. I smiled and said “Hi Princess! Wow, that bear looks well-loved.” She said “yeah, it’s my brother’s.” I said “How nice that he gave it to you! What a good present.” Her mom looks at me with tears in her eyes and says “It was his bear, and this was his Make A Wish trip. He passed away 2 weeks before we were supposed to go. We decided to come for him, and bring his bear so we would have a piece of him with us.” OH GOD. I started to tear up and said “I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope you have a wonderful trip, for him.”
I posted the story on Facebook, and a friend of mine who hangs out with Alice read and it and wrote the next day to tell me she “spent like 45 minutes with them inside (and outside), she showed me pics of the little boy smiling! And the little girl was the cutest ever!!!! Alice even got her a huge Cheshire cat as a gift! She LOVED coloring and even gave me the biggest hug and kiss goodbye! Thanks for posting the story so I knew about it!!!!!” Ahh, the power of social media used for good.
In Mexico one day, Donald was getting ready to head back to Character Spot for the night, and I had closed the line. A man walked up me and asked politely if he could get in line. I had to say no, because I had been telling others no. He then told me it was his birthday and he loved the Three Caballeros more than anything else at Disney World. We chatted for a bit, and then a light went off in my brain. I told him to wait by the stairs, and as Donald left, I would make sure that he got a picture with him. He thanked me profusely, and went to wait by the stairs. I told Donald that he had one more guest to greet, and led him over to the stairs. The man-he looked about 30, and all muscle-gave Donald a giant hug, and took a few pictures with him. He then started to cry. He said “Donald, I just love you, man!” Donald gave him another huge hug, and the man thanked me profusely as he left, saying that I had made his night-and his birthday.

Happy Birthday, Jo! Thank you for existing and creating the amazing world all of us love and will cherish forever! (July 31st, 1965)
“I was supposed to arrive two days earlier [from Toronto]. But what happened is that there’s a computer system in Washington, D.C., that authorizes the physical printings of visas onto passports that was shut down for 48 hours. But there’s a special circumstance that the U.S. government can grant a parole—and yes, that’s what it’s called, and yes, it does make me feel a bit like a felon—for extenuating circumstances. It felt like some sort of road movie: We have to get to Comic-Con! We finally arrived around 11 p.m. Thursday night.” [x]
