I just got home from a 12 hour day at Disney World.
And then had to promptly turn right back around and evacuate the building, due to a fire. For real. A ton of fire trucks showed up, sirens blaring, along with the Fire Chief, heading up the whole dog and pony show. We patrons all straggled outside, nobody judging anybody else for the bizarre combinations of pajamas and outerwear that were being paraded around because truly, we all belonged to the same motley and displaced crew.
But the fire was put out. And while everyone was waiting for the elevators to be turned back on, I decided to take the eleven flights of stairs to my room. It wasn't too bad, actually. I figured I could use the exercise after all the treats I had today.
Which brings me back to Disney World.
All of its Florida-warm-weather-roller-coastering-Lion-King-Festival-watching-churro-and-ice-cream-eating-safari-riding-which-means-seeing-crocs-and-white-rhinos-and-lions-tower-of-terror-dropping-till-my-guts-feel-like-they-might-have-been-left-at-the-top-of-the-ride-Mexico-looks-like-the-night-sky-eating was truly fun.
I mean, good--no great!--clean fun.
And though I don't usually buy swag--especially theme park swag--a group of us all decided to buy some and wear it proudly. I mean, there aren't that many places in the world where you can comfortably put on a pair of over-sized mouse ears and still be taken seriously.
Plus, mine were way on sale.
Anyway, here we are, mugging for the camera. The kind British lady who snapped the image of us all posing quite dramatically without even planning to asked, Are you drama students, then?
I yelled out, What? Us?! Why we've never been on the stage a day in our lives...
Don't worry, afterwards I did explain that we sort of make our living on the stage, so don't walk around thinking that I am a liar after reading this blog.
Anyway, here we are in all of our Disney swag...
And tomorrow, back to real life. If being on tour can ever be considered that. Plus, I get to hang out with my brother, who randomly and wonderfully enough, is here in Orlando on a business conference...Life is good. Wouldn't you agree?
