[Interviewer] What was your favorite birthday?
00:02
My favorite birthday, my own favorite birthday?
00:05
[Interviewer] Yes.
00:07
Um...
00:13
My favorite birthday was my 21st birthday,
00:17
which happened back in April.
00:19
And it was my favorite birthday
00:20
because I went to Disneyland for the first time,
00:23
the original Disneyland.
00:24
And honestly, it was probably the best day of my life.
00:27
It's so magical when you go there.
00:29
You want to eat everything that they put in front of you.
00:32
You march to the music when you're walking around.
00:36
[Interviewer] Did you have a favorite ride?
00:38
Yeah, Space Mountain.
00:40
We were sitting down, we were in the cafe,
00:42
and we'd already been on Space Mountain
00:43
like two or three times at this stage,
00:45
because some of the other rides were closed.
00:47
And then this kid came up to us,
00:48
and it was his birthday as well,
00:50
and he was probably only about like 14 or something.
00:52
And he had these tickets, like four tickets.
00:55
There was four of us.
00:56
And he comes right over, and he's like,
00:59
Hey listen, I've got these tickets here.
01:01
I don't know if any of you want them,
01:02
but they're for Space Mountain, and it's the Fast Pass.
01:05
And it was like God just shone a light down on us.
01:08
Walt Disney just came into our lives,
01:12
gave us free passes to Space Mountain,
01:15
and we went on it another two times.
01:16
And it was the best day of my life.
