What A Character!

Welcome to those of you joining me from 400 Miles to Disneyland and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Disney in Our Blood.

Putting on a costume and being a Disney character.  That must be a dream of the majority of children that visit Walt Disney World.  Well, once they are old enough to realize that they are characters in costume as opposed to only one Mickey Mouse forever.  I've personally never wanted to be a costumed character - to be "friends with Mickey" as they about the person inside the costume.  Can you imagine how hot it would be inside that costume?
Pooh must be melting!
For me, this is an easy choice.

One of the Women of Main Street.  Main Street, U.S.A. is probably my favorite place to be - I love the atmosphere, music, smells, and the shows.  The shops are friendly, but I love the mornings when they are lined with cast members wearing Mickey Mouse gloves waving, the horse-drawn trolley is pulling people down the street. 

I love the Main Street Trolley show, the Dapper Dans, and the Mayor, but the Women?  They're living in Mary Poppins!

In January, we stopped to watch the show, as Mayor Christopher George Weaver announced his plan to run for re-election.  That's when the women step up and declare it is time to "Cast off the shackles of yesterday" (and I even got to participate!) and sing their own song.

I love this bit, but even better?  Watching the Women of Main Street at 6 a.m. in a dark Magic Kingdom as the first runners of the runDisney races pass by.  Not only were they there to cheer on the runners, they were making many comments as well..

And, you can't even imagine the embarrassment these turn of the 20th century women faced when the runners ran by shirtless...

 Unfortunately, I have no improv experience.. maybe I should find a local theatre!

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Disney in Our Blood .

    You bring up a good point about being a costumed character! I think I'd only want to be one during the winter season! ;-)
