We already know that Neil Patrick Harris is a huge Disney fan, but this week we learned a little fact about him that makes him even more relatable than we already thought. In an interview with People Magazine, Neil revealed that the first time he rode Peter Pan’s Flight at Walt Disney World with his kids, he cried!
Harris said: “I took a family vacation to Orlando, to [Walt] Disney World, with my husband and our two kids who were then, maybe two or three. And we went on Peter Pan’s Flight. But the first time we rode it, I just was with my family, at Disney, riding a ride, and I was just bawling, because I just thought it was an awesome thing.”
It wasn’t just the attraction that made Harris cry, but the nostalgia of the whole experience.
“My parents took my brother and I there,” he said. “It was fun to relive that through their eyes.”
Okay, so I don’t have kids, but I know that if I did I would cry just like Neil Patrick Harris did because I cry every time I ride Peter Pan’s Flight anyway! Has there ever been a more magical attraction?
Thanks, Neil, for sharing this story. Next time we go on Peter Pan’s Flight, we will think of NPH!
