In Design we like to say ” God Is In The Details .” Disney sure follows that Philosophy , and beyond. 95 per cent about Disney is wonderful. Let’s face it , people come from all over the world to enjoy what we Floridians are lucky enough to have right here in our backyard. There are however , some things that irritate the h (G rated comment here , as I am still up at Disney) out of me. And as we all know by now , I will list them.
1. Cartoon Characters touching me – If I can’t see your face , don’t pat my head or arm. I picture some lunatic is really behind that Tigger mask and I don’t want you fondling my shoulder. Yeah I just paid 135.oo for a buffet breakfast for 4 complete with “Characters” , and my Grand kids love seeing Pooh , (poor name choice there). But I don’t want your furry paws anywhere near my person , so back off Chip or Dale. Not to be confused with Chippendale.
2. The white line- Crazy Disney is open until 3am this weekend , now we never need to sleep , oh Boy! And when the Parade starts , here comes “the get behind the white lines or keep moving” police. We all can’t fit behind the white lines , you know that , and waving your light stick in my direction like an evil Glo Worm is not gonna make it better. By now we are all bloated from all the expensive junk food we consumed prior to the jiggly , wiggly rides . If we are really lucky , we will be able to see a white line beyond our bleary eyes and bulging bellies , so turn off those lazer sticks and go join the parade.
3. Stepford employees – Okay , everybody we recognize as a Disney employee is super polite , happy to welcome you , sings , dances , and performs like a Broadway triple threat , but I swear they have planted fake families at our lodge. Down at the pool at our resort , not only do the lifeguards in their cute uniforms prance , sing , play games with you , and become your new best friend. But their are several teenagers around , who , well , just don’t act like normal American kids. They too break into choruses of Disney classics , and like to come converse with the other kids and the Adults!!! One encouraged my husband Marc to try the Super Slide , that it was “awesome fun ”. And Marc swears he saw a twinkle star bounce off his toothy grin. I believe these are plain clothes employees and now am slightly suspicious of everyone smirking my way.
We are over tired , sun burnt , have various stomach conditions and look a little like road kill , so you know we are actually having an “awesome” time here at Walt’s Place. I am sure that I will be super relaxed next week back at the job , and plan to incorporate a Tigger and Pooh mural somewhere into all of your houses. Pick the wall , or I will. A dazzling Disney dream to all of you , nighty night,
