Hold On, Tigger!
Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, and those of you who came straight here. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail. I am thrilled to join the Magical Blogorail Yellow Loop!
Our theme today is a favorite or memorable Disney photo, which meant I got to spend an hour sifting through the photos from our first trip reliving all those wonderful memories. Not a bad way to spend an evening! I realized a couple of things: First, I need more Disney photos! Second, I needed to dig a little deeper to find the stories in the photos I have. This is the photo I finally chose:
Aw, cute. The kids meeting Tigger….the typical Mom photo, right? There’s more to this story than meets the eye!
Just as we came around the corner into the photo area, Tigger was making his way rather purposefully toward the Cast Member’s exit. I’m a mom – I know the “I really need to use the restroom” dance when I see it! Bill and I started to guide the kids over toward Pooh instead when Tigger’s handler stopped him.
“Hold on, Tigger. You’ve got some friends to see you!”
Tigger immediately whipped around and was right there to greet our kids. He didn’t even flinch when Princess came running full-speed at him, right at bladder height! He spent several minutes joking around with the kids before posing for photos, and even played with them as we followed him out of the photo area before he (finally) got to escape behind the Cast Member door.
Tigger was a pro. Just like every other Cast Member we encountered. None of the kids had any clue that he was dying to get offstage. Thanks Tigger, for one more great memory!
Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Disney Go To Girl.
