My wife and I saw you at Disneyland California Adventure during lunch. It was our first time back this park in 10 years. The last time was for our 10 year old son Matthew’s bucket list request. He died of cancer 5 months later. Matt loved loved loved Enchanted. It brought us all so much laughter together. To see you was perfect timing!! We chose to not bother you with your beautiful family. Seeing you was enough.
