Sometimes while I'm out doing my job I take a step back and I think, "Man, I can't believe this is my job!"
That moment happened at a Disneyland Press Conference recently while I was sitting in the front row taking notes on all of the upcoming attractions and changes (Carsland, Star Tours, Ariel's Underwater Adventure) and the Disney host said something like, "…and now for something special."
NOTE: Okay, when you're at a Disneyland press event and they say "time for something special" get out your camera. Seriously, just do it.
Next the music swells up and out comes Jody Benson, who is the "Voice of Ariel" in The Little Mermaid. She then sings "Part of Your World" and, as if that weren't enough, she's joined by Sebastian (not sure if he's the original voice) and they sing "Under The Sea" together.
It was freakin' fantastic….and here's the video. I've used it on several occasions to impress third-graders. Feel free to do the same.
