Okay, I'm inspired. There's been (it seems) several threads recently pertaining to negative things happening at the parks. So I thought I would bring up an experience that has stayed with me since it happened last Feb.
My husband and I were in the stand-by line for Soarin'. It wasn't a long wait, we walked into the main hangar right away. I was looking at all the pictures and everything. When we passed the picture of the Columbia crew (I'm pretty sure it was Columbia) a little boy starts tapping on my husband's arm .
My husband turns which prompts my attention to look at the little one. He was quite adorable! He was probably 6 or so and had cute little round glasses and a nice head of longer hair.
Anyway, he starts talking about how some of the members of the crew had come to his school and how he loved that day when he got to see them. He said he remembered the day was a Friday because they served spaghetti (I think) at lunch, which he followed with an exuberant "Yuck! I hate spaghetti!"
He was really charming. His mom said she was sorry that he disturbed us but we told her we were interested in his stories. He went on to entertain us for the duration of the wait, all the way into the ride itself.
We talked about him for months after getting home. Just how nice it was to meet him.
I often wonder if he isn't someone's little devil off the boards? Hmm? What a thought!
Anyone else have such experiences?
