Here are just five of the uber interesting Q&As that came to light during the chat:
- "Mulan, how you say elephant in Spanish?"
- "Pocahontas you are my great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother"
- "Mulan, did you know Ariel & Prince Eric had sex to make Melody?"
- "Hi Silvermist, look at my arm. This is a cast." "Oh, were you having too many adventures? Climbing trees?" "No, I touched a stove."
I was Pocahontas, & I met a little girl named Emily. she was about 7 & with her dad. She came up & said, "Hi Pocahontas, I made you this card." I opened it & it said "Dear Pocahontas, I drew some flowers for you. I hope you have a lovely day. Love, Emily." I thanked her, & she left.
Two days later, I was Silvermist, & guess who comes into Pixie Hollow? Emily. & she gave me a card: "Dear Tinkerbell & her friends, I drew some flowers for you. I hope you have a lovely day. Love, Emily"
Her dad didn't recognize me, but I was excited to have two cards from the same girl. a few days later, I was Mulan, & GUESS WHO COMES UP TO ME? So I said, before she started talking, "I know you , you're Emily! I heard you're really good at drawing flowers, all of my friends told me."
This girl's face lit up like the Fourth of July & she pulled a card out. "Dear Mulan, Shang, & Mushu, I drew some flowers for you. I hope you have a lovely day. Love, Emily." I have three cards for all three of my face characters from the same girl.
Lukeleo92: Did you ever have kids tell you that you weren't the real thing? How did you handle that?
Chinese people would always tell me to speak Chinese & I'd tell them that I bet Mushu if I could go an entire day without speaking Chinese he'd feed the chickens for me tomorrow.
JazzyWaffles: Please tell me you sign as Disney character for receipts! If that's legal. I'd flip and save it... Again, if that's legal.
I used to on accident! I signed "Mulan" about 1000 times a day at work, you eventually get handed paper & do it without thinking.
spooky981: Do adults hit on you?
I was hit on as Pocahontas more than Mulan or Silvermist, & it definitely has to do with the amount of clothing she's wearing. I've never been touched inappropriately, but there's always the family that makes the grandpa or the dad get a picture alone & they'd whisper how pretty I was or ask when I got off of work. I'd get slipped the occasional phone number on a napkin, but nothing ridiculous has ever happened. But it's probably a different story for the Princess Jasmines, who are wearing just a bra & parachute pants.
