Reading another post on waking Tinkerbell got me to thinking about how many times my kids have been selected as ‘audience participants.’ And DD and I were watching an OLD family WDW vacation video this morning and she mentioned it too.
When she was little (around ages 6 through 13 or so), she was on various trips selected to wake Tinkerbell, be in an amateur talent show with cast members while waiting for Typhoon Lagoon to open, be videotaped riding a runaway “bee” (with DS) during a tour at MGM and join in with Belle during a taping of a pilot episode of Belle’s Storytime (or something like that) at MGM. She was also picked from the audience to take part in a taping during a special-effects show at the Alfred Hitchcock attraction at Universal (we went there just once, I swear).
(ALSO: DS and I were each selected to try and pull the Sword from the Stone when he was about 9. I couldn’t do it - of course - but he did!)
Since she’s gotten older, DD has been picked (freshman year in college) to be in the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular and just this past spring, she and her college friends on spring break got picked to be in the “Harbor Attack” special effects scene on the MGM Backlot Tour - and got drenched!
Sorry to brag - didn’t mean it. Just never really occured to me till recently how odd it is that our clan has been selected to do so many different things. I may ask DD to go buy me some Lotto tickets this week!
