Hello everyone. I am filling in for Sebastian today because he is, in two words – star struck. We have met a lot of terrific people and characters while we have been here at DisneyWorld but none has tongue tied Sebastian as thoroughly as Ariel. And really who could blame him? Isn’t this young mermaid lovely?
She and Sebastian had an extended conversation – a lot of which I was not privy to but as soon as his visit was over, he went on and on and on about her. Seriously, I think he is ready to move to Florida and take swimming lessons.
She was very engaging and asked Sebastian what he had been up to and where he had been. Of course, he could have easily spent the rest of his trip telling her tales about his adventures, but I told him he would just have to come back another day because there were a lot of others who wanted to meet her.
I think there are some people may not understand the whole Disney experience and what really makes it magical. I can tell you firsthand that it is the characters you meet who express such a genuine interest in little folks (like Sebastian) and big folks (like you-know-who) that make it unlike any other place you might visit.
My advice to you is that if you have never been, find the little person inside you, take him or her on a Disney ride, and then take him or her around to meet every single character you can. It really can’t be beat for fun! I must go now. Sebastian wants to get an Ariel memento and he wants my advice. (Personally, I think that the photos are the best and most priceless thing he could have.)
Come back later and I will see if I can get Sebastian to share a little about his other experiences.
