Fourth ship in fleet offers new twists
Imagine your drawing dancing on a wall
A child's makeover fit for a princess
The 80-year-old man had not drawn a picture of himself since childhood. That’s what his son said.
Aboard the new Disney Fantasy cruise ship, instructions made it easy: Here’s a magic marker. Imagine how you look. On the paper placed at your table in the dining room, scribble in the white spaces, on the face, chest and tummy, shirt sleeves, trouser legs, and feet.
As his son tells the story, the old man sighed and acquiesced. He drew a simple line for a mouth, circles for eyes, some hair of which he had little, dots on the shirt, stripes on the pants. Finished quickly, he concentrated on his family in the Animator’s Palate dining room.
Then came the magic, and his eyes twinkled into a full grin.
To the music of a whimsical cartoon, the old man’s picture began to dance across the dining room walls, along with several dozen other characters from other tables.
