What was your favorite childhood toy?
My stuffed Goofy doll. I took him everywhere. When I went to Disney as an adult, I told Goofy that he was my favorite and that I always loved him. The guy inside of the Goofy costume grabbed me and said, “Oh, really? I like you, too!” He then picked me up and carried me away. The kids all watched in absolute horror. This is also the story of why my sons are more partial to Mickey.
