Meeting All the Characters and What I Learned: Day One and Two

Meeting Pocahontas

Meeting Pocahontas

Recently, I wrote about why I like to meet characters. One of my favorite things to do in the Walt Disney World Parks is to meet everyone.

So, I am on a mission to meet all the characters. I am going to record that here and what I learned from each one. Animal Kingdom is the place that I began on Thursday, and Magic Kingdom was on Friday. Here are my first characters:

1. Pocahontas: I had never met her before and was a bit nervous. She was so kind though. First, she asked about my adventures. I noticed that a fan was blowing on her and said that I was happy that she had it to stay cool. A bit surprised, she thanked me and stated that it was a bit cold at times though. Then she said goodbye to me as her people would and thanked me for being so sweet. Her lesson to me was that you can be strong, independent, and kind. It meant a lot to me that she thanked me for caring about her because it was such a lovely connection. Continue reading

This weeks links are a very interesting blend of various items. Hopefully, you will enjoy the list!

One Thousand Thanks: 670 – 680. Poignant Films – Part One

Peter Pan

This is one of the movies that inspired me.

On Tuesday, Mario and I went on a sibling date to buy some security shirts for him and see a movie. Watching Maleficent with him was an enjoyable experience. Although more violent than I prefer, the film touched me with its beautiful cinematography, sympathetic character portrayal, and intense plot twists. Many times I leaned over to see how Mario was doing with the fight scenes, but he seemed to enjoy the movie although for different reasons than I did.

This inspired me to write a post about the movies that I am most thankful for and that most touched me. This is similar to the past lists that I did on books. Once again, I am going to list an item that inspired me each year of my life for this Thankful Thursday.
