My user name comes from Peter Pan when Tinkerbell is fading away, and he calls on all the children to clap their hands to bring her back. I remember riding in my mom's station wagon in the 80s and listening to a cassette tape of children's stories with songs. At the end of Peter Pan, there was a song that went, "If you believe in fairies, then clap your hands" followed by three claps. I remember singing along and clapping my hands to save Tink. Over and Over and Over. My poor Mom!
I think if you're an adult who loves Disney, there's part of you that still believes in fairies, so go ahead and Clap Your Hands!
Minnie has always been one of my favorite characters. I met her for the first time many, many years ago in Disneyland. Back in the day, the characters walked around the park and you had to go search for them. I remember feeling ragged and dirty next to her, but she hugged me and signed my autograph book anyway
