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