Q:Could you explain what's wrong with that Dinosaur ride? I thought it looked interesting, but I've obviously never been.
It’s a trap.
It lures you in with impressive and enticing facts and museum-like aura, and brings you in with the fantastic Bill Nye the Science Guy explaining about their extinction over an enormous skeleton of a ferocious dinosaur. Then Momma Cosby assures you that your time travel trip to their era will all be fun and overall safe, while that one guy from CSI is awkward and sneaky about wanting to bring some Iguanadon back with you and how the Iguanadon is a vegetarian and super cute. Once your thrilling adventure commences, you are met with this wondrous and amazing scenario of their every day life and how magnificent these giant beasts are.
But oh-uh, what’s that? Why is it all dark? What’s this potent and short gusts of wind? Almost like breathi- OH MY GOD THERE’S ONE RIGHT IN YOUR FACE. Oh wait, it’s okay. It’s just a gentle, adorable Brontosaurus. Just fun and friendly veggie eaters, right? FUCKING WRONG. There’s T-Rexes, Velociraptors and that one creepy little one that opens up their gills and spits at you all violent. Then there’s that demon; that giant, T-Rex eating motherfucker that slowly brings it’s razor teeth and horns above you and screams while you pray for you to either be eaten or just die, who cares? Just as long as the whole nightmare is over.
And then, it is. Just like that. You’re safe back in their poorly lit port, the Iguanadon apparently is safe and playing “Scooby Doo hide and seek” in the building, and they greet you as if it had been the greatest adventure, and you’re not going to cry and shake for hours afterwards and wake up in cold sweats and screaming during the night for the next few weeks.
Most accurate description of this ride I’ve ever seen.
So my schedule officially sucks for the second week in a row.
Thank goodness for Extra Hours.
Speaking of which, imma be in Fantasyland tomorrow parking strollers. First non F&B shift ever. I’m stupidly excited.
GUYS I HAD THE BEST CHARACTER INTERACTION EVER TODAY
So I got out of work at 9:15, and I decided that I wanted to stay to see Wishes. Well, my favorite Wishes spot in in Belle’s Village right in front of Gaston’s Fountain. So after work, that’s where I headed.
So Wishes starts right, and I’m into it enjoying it like always. When randomly, Gaston comes out. Now, I dunno if this has become a usual thing, but I’ve never seen him out during the fireworks before, so in my head I was like, ” oh that’s different.” Then I went back to Wishes.
Well, a few minutes later, Gaston comes up beside me and starts up a conversation. This is how it went.
GASTON: “You like fireworks?”
ME: “Of course! Wishes is like my favorite thing to see here.”
GASTON: “Oh really? Do you find them…romantic?”
ME: “umm….Sure I guess?”
GASTON: “Good. I put these together for Belle. I’m sure to win her over with this time.”
ME: “Well, how can you be so sure she’ll see them?”
GASTON: “What do you mean?”
ME: “I’m pretty sure she’s getting ready for a really fancy evening with The Beast in that castle over there.”
GASTON: *flustered* “Wha……what do you mean? Are you sure?”
ME: “Pretty sure.”
GASTON: “Where’s an angry mob when you need them?”
By then other guests had started to notice he was there and wanted a picture, so he became distracted, but it was alright because I was like dying. Remember, this was all going on WHILE Wishes was going. It was just hilarious. Kudos, Gaston. You win best character interaction in recent memory.
Achevement Get: Onboarding Completed!
Next Stop: Traditions!
I’m saddened, my Traditions date isn’t until Feb. 23. It seems like forever away, I wanna start now! (Anyone else out there doing Traditions on the 23rd and wanna be buddies?)
Today was good. Had some more paperwork to fill out, but since I had my fingerprints and background check done last time, I was done relatively fast.
I’m just impatient to start. I want out of this cookie nonsense. Too much drama, and I’ve only been working there for like three weeks.
I can has nametag?!
Wishes meant a lot to me tonight, considering one of mine might be getting ready to come true very soon. This was possibly my last night hanging out at the parks before potentially being a Cast Member. I was able to get some cool pictures of Wishes, thanks to my new tripod. However, my camera still has problems with pinks and blues.
That time when Rapunzel was getting her tower in MK and I was completely unsurprised. Totally called it by the way. When we went to Be Our Guest the tower still hadn’t appeared over the wall, and I said “It’s probably a Rapunzel Meet and Greet because she’s not on the wall with the others for the Fairytale Hall, and she’s too popular to be discontinued.”
Nicole, Alyssa, and I were speculating that because the area looks to be rather large for just a meet and greet, that maybe Fantasyland will get another quick service place for snacks, because, let’s be honest, Pinocchio’s has gone down hill since they started serving flat bread pizza. It’s just not even tasty. We’re hoping for a recreation of the Snuggly Duckling. Because, like, wouldn’t that be awesome?

DAT STITCH BALLOON
Seriously, if someone were to give me that balloon, I’d probably marry them.
