Anyone who has been reading my blog contributions (all 1 of you) know this summer I will be going to Walt Disney World for what promises to be a wonderful family vacation. What you don’t know is that I’m really going disguised as a geek dad. I’m not really the mild mannered neurotic Disney dad that writes about his passion for the parks week in and week out. I’m really a secret agent being sent to Walt Disney World on a top secret mission.
The powers that be have chosen me for this mission because of my strength, conviction, and willingness to do almost anything at Disney to get the job done. I know this won’t be an ordinary mission and I know it won’t be easy. What I do know is that I will have to endure a physical test of strength that no ordinary person could possibly handle. I know I will have to go walking in the hot blazing sun and deal with unbearable heat and humidity. I know that just when my feet can’t stand it no more and they start to ache, I’m going to have to walk some more.
In order to succeed on this mission I’m going to have to ride the attractions as they take me from one adventure to another. I will have to conquer Spaceship Earth, go Soarin’, and climb to the top of Space Mountain. I will have to go on a voyage with the Pirates of the Caribbean and then I’ll be sent on a Disney Dream Jungle Cruise during the day and night.
This mission calls for me to go on an expedition where I may have to stave off the Yeti and tangle with lions and tigers, oh my. I will have to get through the shark infested Living Seas and hope a turtle named Crush doesn’t notice my shell. I may even have to help Stitch escape.
The toughest part of the mission has to be the food that I will be required to consume in large quantities. There’s Dole Whips, Mickey Bars, and Tonga Toast. I may even have to race some guy named Lou to the popcorn. I’ll be expected to lasso a burger at Pecos Bill’s. I even have my net ready to capture a Flying Fish. I’ve also been warned about the danger I could encounter with a little rat at Chefs de France. As I try to complete this quest I may have to slay not one dragon, not two dragons, not even three dragons, but Nine Dragons.
As I make my way through the parks there will be clues in the form of hidden Mickey’s which will be the keys to my success in completing the mission at hand. To help I’m looking for a person whose expertise in recognizing and finding hidden Mickey’s is second to none. So I ask, is there a Doctor in the house of mouse?
Because of the involvedness of this top secret mission I have been given permission to find anyone willing to volunteer their services to the cause but, I must warn you of the dangers. Those who have previously attempted this mission have never made it out of the parks.
If you’re willing to make the ultimate sacrifice and quite possibly never escape the confines of Walt Disney World destined to spend the rest of your days on Disney property then, you may have just what it takes. If you can stand the heat, if you’re rough, tough, and have a burning desire with a Disney heart of fire then stand up and be counted.
If you haven’t done so already, the time has come for you to join the Disney Driven Life and register as a Neurotic Disney Person.
Should you choose to accept this mission then welcome to the growing family of Neurotic Disney People who someday shall rule the World!
