Memorable Cast Member Stories: Belle Broke My Heart

In continuation of my recalls of amazing cast members (which the first one can be read here.) We shall be traveling back to 2010, where I dealt with the most rudest person ever…

TV style flashback waves. DU-da-DU-da

I went to Disneyland in 2010, at the end of May with my aunt and her family. They’re foster parents and the company they go through was holding an event for the families they work with.  One of her daughters decided not to go, and so I was offered the spot instead. At 13, I jumped at the chance. Despite being only late May, the weather was ungodly hot. In order to take a break from the sun, my cousin (the same one from the first post) and I decided to wait in line and meet the Princess. We made the walk to the corner of Fantasyland to the Fantasyland Theater. (This was before MATHMM construction had begun)

Despite being 13, I was super stoked to be meeting the Princess. I had never met any of the princesses, and to be able to was a big deal. Yes, I knew they were just people in costumes, but there’s something special to meeting Characters at DL.

So we met Ariel first, and after taking a awkward photo, I said under my breath ‘good luck’ (because there were some cray people behind us) and Ariel looks at me with a smile and is like ‘With what?’ Being caught off guard, I brought up the first thing that popped into my mind- the weather. ‘With the weather, it’s so hot out here.’

The next one was Belle- now everyone needs to know Belle is like my princess. She’s the cartoon version of me basically. In my star struck moment all I could say was ‘you’re my favorite’. Then, to my poor over joyed heart, she gave a not-so-happy smirk like smile and was like ‘oh thank you’. To put a small bit of salt on my wounds, she had tan lines… TAN LINES! X-X

After Belle there was Tiana, who was a simple pic-and-out. What really killed me, was moving down towards the stage- where Cinderella and Aurora were for their MAG. My cousin ADORES Cinderella, so of course we met her. To pour the rest of the salt in my wounds- Cinderella was amazing! She was so nice, it killed me.

This time around I have photos, which I shall share though the PQ isn’t the best. IDK what happened to the ones I took on my camera (which was brand new at the time and sooo cool)

The Belle who broke my heart. She was the first and last time I met Belle. I’ve seen her around in my last few visits but never took the time to talk to her.

I was so awkward meeting all of them. I was like ‘personal space for both, hands at rib-cage level’ Plus, I hated (and to a point still do) sticking my boobs out. Being busty is in my genes and I don’t want to push them into people’s faces because I’m tall.

Said-cousin with Cinderella. You can clearly see she’s geeking out. Her body’s all tense!

So, to answer the question of ‘can Characters actually be mean [to you]’? Yes, yes they can. But they can also be amazing- ‘cause I have more stories to come.

Your mom may be cool, BUT she’ll never be #DisneyPrincess cool. #mymom #disney #tbt #Cinderella #WGL #grandpa

This is so cool! You always see a ton of old photos of Snow White in Disneyland but never any of Cinderella or Auroa. I mean- in the words of Syndrome ‘come on- you gotta admit that this is pretty cool!’

I just wanna say this movie is scary as shit. I watched it for the first time a few months ago and nearly died because I was home alone in my dark room and the stupid skeleton king popped up on screen. Definitely one if Disney’s darkest.

Memorable Cast Member Stories: The Golden Fass Pass

Hello Followers of mine who I call Peoples; today- and possibly over the course of the next few days/weeks, I will be sharing my most memorable Cast Member Experiences I’ve had during my trips to Disneyland!

Travel back with me, the faithful Summer in the year of 2009…

At twelve years old, I was taking a pretty big step- I was going to Disneyland for the first time on my own- sort of. My older cousin who was 16 at the time, was my faithful companion for the day. The morning passed in a blur- like literally I can barely remember most of it, until that afternoon when we went to ride The Matterhorn. The line was short, and we figured it was time to jump in. We waited maybe five minutes tops, moving only when people got out of line. At time we didn’t realize that was the sign for ‘something is up, don’t waste you time’.  The ride had broken down and was going to be out for the rest of the night. Being only 12 & 16, no one told us anything. What I over heard a cast member telling some father was some idiot teenager (it’s always one of them) threw (or “lost”) his backpack from the bobsled and it landed on the tracks. 

So there was no bobsled ride that day. Instead we were given the (as I call them) Golden Fass Pass- AKA a Universal Fass Pass AKA a Fass Pass that you’re given when a ride breaks down and allows you to get on any ride whether it has a Fass Pass or not.  It was my first, and up until this entry, last GFP. 

None the less we used it for one of the best dark rides in the Park- Peter Pan’s Flight. So we go up to Mr.Cast Member working the exit portion of the ride, and whose name I can’t remember for the life of me, and show him our GFP. We explain how we got it, and after he looks at our GFP and he hands it back. I give my cousin a look, as I slowly retreat my hand. Mr.CM gives a smile and tells us that he’s suppose to take it, but he’ll let us catch this flight for free and to use the pass elsewhere. So we thank him, ride (My cousin totally ruined the magic of the ride but that’s another story), and as we get off, we thank him again.

With the same GFP we take a trip over to Dumbo, and as Mrs.CM looks at it, she ask ‘are you sure you want to use it for this ride?’ we say yes, because we’ve already gotten the ride we wanted out of it and all the other planned rides had FP.

I wanted to share this story first, because this time last week, I was at Disneyland with my younger cousin. She had gotten two free one-day PH tickets through an event Disney had for the Boys and Girl’s Club. So together we set out on her first solo Disney trip. We had some amazing interactions but those stories are for another post…

To all those who followed, like, and reblogged my post:

Thank you! <3

Taken on my last trip to Disneyland/ California Adventure. It was my first time seeing the show live. I did my best to catch all the jokes without holding my phone up and while watching the show; but at some points my phone started to focus on the big-head tourist in front of me. I was also trying to not laugh too loud for the video but at the same time I was in the 3rd row and thus I knew the actors could see me and hear me. So in support of them, I do laugh in the video.

If you ever get the chance to see the show live, then do it. Genie was on a roll that day, and I heard some jokes I had yet to see. (I.E. Brazilian football team; Miley Cyrus)

**I totally had a moment with Iago/ the actor. Right before Jasmine and Jafar come out for the opening scene to “Prince Ali”, I noticed Iago/ his actor up along the side of the stage. We made human-puppet-human eye contact and Iago waved at me. I waved back, and then Iago blew a waved again and blew a kiss. I thought that was amazing, and laughed. Pretty sure everyone around me thought I was cray.**
