Peter Pan: Real Life Hero!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 21, 2013, 2:44 PM






Here's a post from Tumblr I thought you guys would really love: :heart:
It's all about Peter Pan at Disneyland and some amazing encounters with him:














If you're lucky enough to meet Peter Pan in person, make sure you give him a hug!
He's an amazing person. :D

From Disney comes two-time Oscar winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” starring Academy Award winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever.

:clap: Excuse me while I blubber like a baby, but that's probably one of the most amazing things I heard yet! It's people like that that make me gain respect for the human race. They definitely have the right person to exist!

I saw Peter hanging around Adventureland, and I really wanted to talk to him, but my group was in a rush and my ex-boyfriend was getting jealous, so I couldn't. D:

I've seen this post many times on tumblr, but I have to tell you some bad news... :(

That Peter Pan no longer works at Disneyland. I have found two possible reasons for this.

- Apparently, the staff saw that he was having wrinkles under his eyes, and offered him another position; but he wanted to stay as Peter Pan, so he quit. (yeah, he got fired for growing up).

- Disneyland has a policy regarding "face characters" (such as Peter Pan): guests are NOT allowed to say the person's real name to them, or else it ruins the magic for little kids :( People started doing some research and found out "Peter"'s real name, and he was fired as a result.

But he still did great things while there :)

Peter's got some guts. Telling that horrible man to "Grow up". Even Disney characters have :heart:s.

So glad to know there are people like this in the world, because you know he's probably not just like that when he's playing Peter, he's like that all the time too.

which Disney world park is he at? like, which country and city? This is so lovely. I saw one of these on Tumblr, but hadn't seen the others. :) I'm glad there are *Jackalopes/peter pan* around.. :D



ps - a jackalope for those who don't know, is an antelope/rabbit that never gives up and is always a sunny person.

Every time I have met Peter, he has been a joy. These stories actually made me tear up, especially the "you're beautiful" one. This is a fantastic example of the power of Disney magic.

Those are the most amazing stories! I wish I had seen this before last weekend when I was at Disneyland...then I would've definitely said hello and gave him a hug! My family had rushed us by him because they were trying to reach a ride and heard several kids in the process. If I had seen this before then, I would've definitely stopped and made sure my daughter had met him and got a picture. What a wonderful person!!!! :iconhappycrynod:
