This past week I was relaxing in my family room with my wife watching my favorite TV show, The Big Bang Theory when I got the idea for this article. I raced into our kitchen grabbed a napkin, a pen and quickly wrote it down. Then I raced back to watch the rest of the show.
After The Big Bang Theory episode ended I looked at the napkin and realized I scribbled down my idea so quickly that I couldn’t read my own handwriting. It’s a good thing I remembered what my idea was so, I turned to my wife and asked, what Disney attraction do you think best describes my personality? I knew she would know the answer and sure enough she did, Spaceship Earth. Then I asked her why? She said it’s because I’m always thinking of the future. While that is true, I am always planning for the future I expected her to say something else. I thought she would say Spaceship Earth because it’s a mellow and relaxing ride and I’m very laid back and reserved. I also think Spaceship Earth best describes my personality because I have always enjoyed learning about world history. I believe past history makes us what we are today so we may move forward to build a better tomorrow.
Now, my wife wanted to know what Disney attraction I thought best describes her personality. I thought about this for quite some time and I couldn’t come up with anything that I thought was a good fit. So, I asked her to tell me which attraction best fits her personality. At first she didn’t have an answer but, after thinking about it for a moment my wife blurted out “The Great Movie Ride!” I said, “I could definitely see that. One minute you’re singing in the rain and the next minute you’re turning into an alien.” We both laughed. However, my wife has a really good reason for picking The Great Movie Ride. My wife admits she has a very complex personality and The Great Movie Ride scenes have all these different elements that portray different persona and emotions. The attraction takes you from a light hearted scene in Mary Poppins to a dark shady scene from Public Enemy and on to a scene that spotlights the great western films with John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. Other scenes are from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Tarzan, Casablanca, Fantasia, and the Wizard of Oz. I can definitely see how my wife can relate her complex personality to The Great Movie Ride but, I wouldn’t want her to be any other way.
I decided to ask some twitter friends if they were interested in briefly answering the question in one or two sentences and everyone provided great responses.
