Hi ho ho ho. Sebastian here. Even though by the time you read this I will be back home snug as a bug in my very own bed, I want to tell you about our brief stopover in Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.
Upon arrival at Animal Kingdom we saw yet another gigan…gigun…oh nevermind. This is a big Christmas tree.
Just a short trip into the park I felt as if Christmas itself had arrived when I got a chance to meet one of my favorite bears – Baloo from Jungle Book.
He wasn’t alone though. He had King Louie with him and what a pair they made. These two were so funny! I could have sat and watched them all day as they greeted their fans.
And then being a generous sort of little ted, I invited my staff to join me in a photo. They weren’t too much of a bother.
Then we had the good fortune to be able to see The Festival of the Lion King. What a spectacular show! Just so you know I was in the “lion” section. For a bear, I can do a pretty good roar.
Then we headed for Hollywood Studios to see The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. We waited for dusk to settle . . .
and then. . . ta-dah!
What an amazing feeling it was to be in the middle of all those lights when they were turned on for the evening!
Even though I have seen them before I am still amazed! There were lights everywhere!
This year the show was synchronized with the Glow with the Show ear hats. So cool!
Ginger made a special effort to take a photo of these Dalmatians for Topher. His favorite Disney movies are the ones with dogs.
On the way out of the park we stopped in to see two of my favorite mice: Minnie and Mickey. Minnie is always so sweet to me even though she has lots of fans waiting she always take great care to say a kind hello to me.
We wrapped up the evening with a visit to meet Mickey the Sorcerer. He was funny and very magical.
He made the jingle bell on my Santa hat ring and then all his staff started singing Jingle Bells. That’s an experience you can only get at Disney.
What great fun! It’s no wonder he’s the boss!
We had a great time!
With Christmas love & hugs,
