To Ryan - Love, Princess Aurora by SantosPhillipCarlo To Ryan - Love, Princess Aurora by SantosPhillipCarlo
An iPad shot from April 19th at Town Square Theater. Bear with me - this one's got a long story behind it.

I had just heard from an old friend and teammate - Ryan of Fort Lauderdale, who had left for the Disney Store in Fort Lauderdale during my second session. I first met him late one night during my second College Program session when we both had been on duty. I'd been assisting with the Kiss Goodnight on the castle forecourt stage, and it was there that he had found and started getting to know me That night, we befuddled our coordinator by how much we knew Disney voice actors and actresses and beyond and I found out how much of a Disney fan he was and how much he was (and still is) dedicated to the Magic because he believed (and still believes) in it so much. Then he saw The Voyage - and I was stunned that he was moved to tears and that he regarded me as even more dedicated than he was, something that I frankly think is not true. We'd become friends that night, and when I heard that he wanted to come back, I was instantly rooting for him wholeheartedly.

In light of that, when I talked to the Princesses that day, I'd asked them if they wanted to pass on their well-wishes - and they did once I let them know that he was trying to come back. Aurora, who'd just written a note for a guest, wrote another one right at this moment. It simply read, "To Ryan - Love, Princess Aurora." Needless to say, Ryan was very happy when he heard the story and saw this - Aurora happily writing to him to reach out to him again.

Really? (Grins sheepishly) I was hoping he liked it, but seeing him that emotional was something I never saw coming. He suggested that I get the books insured.

I hadn't talked to Ryan for a while, but I always liked and respected him because he brought it so much, so I knew I had to see if I could get well wishes for him. And I know you can get there!
