{Happenings at Work}

Today, a young woman got down on one knee and proposed to Donald Duck.
No joke.
And Donald was so surprised that he had no idea what to do with himself.

And on the exact same day, Donald saw two of his friends, which was very exciting for him.
But then one friend posed a question that he honestly couldn't answer.
Which was embarrassing.

And better yet, on the still same day, an adorable little girl almost fell asleep on his lap.
So incredibly precious.

Can anyone tell I love my job?

Almost every day comes with incredible moments. Some don't seem so incredible in the moment, and some just scream "isn't this amazing, Courtney! Don't you love life here?!"

Two days ago, Mickey was asked to autograph the photo of a newlywed Japanese couple. The picture had the bride and groom in their beautiful white attire, and Mickey and Minnie hugging them. They were married at the Disney Wedding Pavilion, which has the most amazing view of Cinderella's Castle, and a huge price tag. I felt so honored to be the one signing that picture. Sorry, Mickey felt honored. Let's clarify that.

Every day I meet Make A Wish children and their parents, and I just want to spend hours with these kids. Sometimes the kids I meet have disabilities, and they are so sweet! The characters are real to them, and it always gives me a fresh burst of energy. 

Most days, when my attendant says "5 minutes left, Mickey!" I don't want to end my set. I could spend hours at a time out meeting people. Granted, the sweat rolling down my back and the headgear burrowing into my scalp aren't so pleasant. But really, I can't complain. The magic moments completely make up for it.

Much love to you all!
