Have you ever seen the video of Kristen Bell freaking out over a sloth? Well, you should take a second to watch this video because it’s fantastic.
Point being, I just had a meltdown of Kristen Bell VS. Sloth proportions. Why? Because I am now the proud owner of a Disney annual pass! I know lots of people go to Disney all the time. I mean, I was there only six months ago. But to have the ability to beep myself into the park whenever I want. Mind blown!
Those of you who have been around here a few times know that I am obsessed with Pluto. He’s my friend, and I love him. I’m going to be working in Florida all winter, and now on my days off, I can go visit Pluto! Disney dancing lights at Christmas? I’m there! International food and wine fest? Why, yes please!
But the real meltdown came when I realized I could go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! This is a big deal not only because the Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion ride are coming out to play in the park, but also because there is only one Monday night available, and I’m going!
As an actor, events that only happen on weekends like Renn Faires, Haunted Houses, Christmas Concerts, are usually a no go if you’re in a show. And by “in a show” I mean working so you actually have enough money to do anything fun.
But last night I looked at my calendar and saw the one Magic Monday when I can go see the Sanderson Sisters come back from the grave to perform, and I had a full on excitement attack. It’s like a panic attack, but you’re so exited, little things like breathing and functioning like an adult suddenly seem impossible. So I was walking around work, bright red from not being able to breath, my feet numb from clenching my toes so hard, and every once in a while my husband would say, “Do you want to go see Pluto?” just to make me cry.
Cause that’s love. Making your wife cry in front of your colleagues because you bought her a Disney pass.
But that’s fine. ‘Cause I’M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!!!
