A middle aged man who dresses up as characters to play child-like roles in an amusement park, should start deciding what he wants to do when he grows up.

I remember being at the Magic Kingdom a while back. It was the end of the day, and I passed under the train station and was heading towards the turnstiles. There were a number of characters interacting with guests and saying goodbye, and one of them was Tigger.

A small blind boy--maybe 5 years old--"tapped" his way towards Tigger using his cane. Tigger squatted down to be more on level with the boy, who tossed down his cane so that he could touch Tigger's face all over to "see" what he looked like. The smile on his face was priceless, as was the feeling I got from watching.

Heaven forbid the great folks who work for Disney should ever "grow up" and stop spreading this kind of joy.
