On Tuesday I was fortunate enough to be sitting in the audience of Epcot's Candlelight Procession while none other than Neil Patrick Harris narrated. Needless to say I was thrilled as I adore him in everything he does from Dr. Horrible to How I Met Your Mother! (Ok let's be serious I was fan-girling like crazy, but only on the inside. I didn't want to look like a freak.)
It was a beautiful event and I was amazed by how talented the choirs were, but what really caught my eye was the lighting and sound. Props go out to my friends in Entertainment tech because they did an amazing job!
Oh yeah and of course NPH was brilliant! I enjoyed how he was able to include his personality, like bobbing along with the songs even though he was telling the story of Jesus in a more serious manner.
He also opened the night with a cute story about how Disney was a great place for families and how he was a proud papa to see his kids go on their first Disney ride. Be still my little kid lovin' heart. Hearing him talk about his kids was so darn sweet!
However the coolest part for me happened the next day when I walked over to the French pavilion to visit my friends.
As I was walking on the main promenade a little kid named Gideon cut me off because he was chasing a leaf. I laughed a bit because the kid was adorable, and the comments his dad made were hilarious. Then I looked up and realized holy crap his dad is David Burtka! Then I looked to my left and 3 feet away, there was NPH standing with Harper on his shoulders. They were the cutest family and they looked like they were having so much fun. So I decided to not bother them for something as silly as a photo and instead ran over to my friend to gush about my celebrity spotting.
I love my job. haha.
Also narrating this week for Candlelight is Whoopi Goldberg but I don't think I'll be watching only because I saw it once this week. Maybe I'll check it out again once Gary Senise is narrating because who doesn't want to hear Lt. Dan telling the story of baby Jesus?!
Anyways, I'm off to eat at Sanaa (in the Wilderness Lodge villas) with some of my friends from the Mexican attraction! Nothing beats African/ Indian food fusion. So delicious!
Enjoy your day!
