I was at RSN (the image place when you get off of Racers) today working the handicap accessible line’s register when this little boy approaches me. We start to talk and he asks several questions: “How to the car’s drive alone?” “How do they go faster?” “What makes them go?”. Naturally I answer them as best as I can, making Tinkerbell’s magic the main reason on how they move, and saying that they go faster by how much you cheer and scream.
Well he gets off topic and begins to tell me that he danced with Mary Poppins today, and how she has some of the best dance moves. He told me that he met the princesses and that they loved twirling in their dresses. I then tell him “Mary Poppins teaches the Princesses how to twirl, and she gives them princess lessons because Mary is practically perfect in every way.” After telling him this his eyes filled with wonder, like everything in the world made sense by me saying this one thing. He had the biggest smile on his face because all of the dots just connected to form this wonderful picture. He replies with “That makes so much sense! Because Mary is perfect, and Ariel is perfect, so if Mary teaches Ariel to be perfect, then she will be perfect, and she is!” It was one of the best guest (kid) interactions that I’ve had while working for Disney. This little boy was so sweet that he wanted me to ride Racers with him. Sadly I could not go on Racers with him, even though he tried to convince me otherwise.
It was a wonderful night filled with wonderful people. Just another reason why I am truly blessed.
