999 Happy Haunts: Does That Include Walt Himself?

First off, let me apologize for my unexpected absence the past couple of weeks. My job has changed rather drastically, in an amazing way, but it has been kicking my butt the past few weeks. I’ve also been put in charge of all social media and blogging, so at the end of the day, the last thing I want to do is look at a computer screen! But I’ve gotten into the groove and I’m back and have been missing my Disney World. :(

I will admit that I believe in ghosts. That being said, I don’t believe in every ghost story I hear, but I rather enjoy being scared and so the stories are entertaining. What I have for you today might go beyond my comfort zone, though. This is pretty creepy.

DISCLAIMER: I promise you that this is not one of those awful pop-up-scare-you-half-to-death videos. I wouldn’t do that to you. ;)

Over in sunny California, in Disneyland, a security guard was spooked when he noticed the cameras were capturing something very odd. This clip shows what appears to be a gentleman taking a leisurely stroll through the park. The apparition does not fly by the screen, it’s very calm and almost thoughtful. My thoughts; Walt Disney is keeping an eye out on his beloved park. It makes sense to wander at midnight, when the park is quiet and empty. Take a look for yourself!

So, whaddya think? Let me know!

 

Fun Fact Friday! #158

As some of you may know, I recently went to Walt Disney World and thoroughly enjoyed a solo vacation. It was interesting, a lot of fun, and I plan on going every year… that is, if I can afford it.

That’s leads me to fact #158: Did you know that on opening day of Walt Disney World, admission tickets were a meager $3.50?

Hello, if I’m feeling fancy whilst stumbling into a Starbucks, I could drop $5 on a cup. If the prices were still that way, you bet your bootie I’d be going to WDW once a year. No, scratch that, I would make it my job to be there every day. Do I hear a new blog idea for 2016: 365 consecutive Disney Days?

I wonder if my boss would support a 12-month sabbatical?

What Would Your Job at Disney Be?

If you’re like me, getting a job at Walt Disney World sounds more like winning the lottery! I understand that work is work, but I have to imagine that being at the parks in the warm weather, music, and scenery would make up for any nuances. My job is hardly a “dream”, so I often find myself daydreaming about heading south and joining the crew at WDW. But, what job would I have there? Hmm…

Try the quiz and see what you get! Maybe we can save some money and rent a place together ;)

My job?: Ticket Taker

You say hello to people as they arrive and leave. You are the perfect way to start and end the day.

Actually, I think I would prefer a job inside the park, but I can see the plus side of working the booth. A chair, AC, and a wonderful view of the entrance! *dream*

 

 

How lucky!

I have never met (or seen) Peter Pan or Wendy at the WDW parks. Peter Pan is one of my all time favorite Disney movies, one of the few that brings back such nostalgic feelings every time I watch it. These lucky people had the most adorable and sweet visit with Peter Pan and Wendy at the Magic Kingdom. I’m a bit jealous ;)

But seriously, growing up, I had the BIGGEST crush on Peter Pan. Now I’m thinking I should probably watch the movie tonight. Oh, I have to get myself off of youtube and back to work!

Preparing for the Blizzard!

mickey minnie on iceWhy am I still living here?

I should be in Florida, but alas, I can’t leave the family behind. Anyways, we are expecting to get 28″+ in the next 36 hours. It has already begun to snow, and I am sooo not looking forward to this.

But if I do have to be stuck inside, at least I’ll have my Disney shorts to keep me company. “On Ice” is a hopeful short that could almost convince me snow can be fun!

[Sorry, that’s a real stretch!]
