I knew when I reached out to Brian Staron to preform at our May event that he was VERY funny and talented! I also knew that he was special to us and a part our magical Disney memories. I further knew he was generous and kind for offering his services for our event and traveling all the way up to New Jersey from Florida. But what I didn't know was how extremely amazing and out of this world he is!!!Here are some fantastic pictures from the night of the surprise!
I contacted him to find out when he would be preforming during our stay so we could attend a show. We planned to attend one and never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined what he had planned for us. If we would have just seen his show that would have been amazing and we would have been content. But no... Brian had about 15-20 Disney cast members out to watch the show and greet Ella. They presented her with enough balloons to be in the movie UP, a framed photo of her and Brian at their first meeting in 2010 and princess ears for Ella and Claire. Brian introduced us to the crowd as a special family to him and gave Ella a gong to bang whenever he said FUN... I'm sure you can guess it was said a lot!!! If it would have ended there that would have been plenty and we would have walked away with such warm fuzzies and special memories. But no... After his show they all walked us down to ESPN Zone (We had an entourage!). We were sat at a table and then on the jumbo tron Brian announces that we were MVP's and that our dinner was on Mickey. We had a great dinner and then they brought out a special cake. Brian told us this wasn't the end of the surprises. Lisa (his manager) told us to be at the fire station the following day. On our way there Ella said "My BFF Brian said there would be more surprises... but it's ok if there aren't any, last night was enough". Then we go to the fire station and are whisked away to City Hall and taken into a back VIP room where we were greeted by 5 beautiful princesses!!! Claire immediately fell into Belle and would not let her go. Ella screamed in delight and sang a medley with each princess using each of their songs. She couldn't stop giggling!!! The princesses were so gracious and sweet. Claire later on the ride home said "my wish came true" and I asked her what was that and she said "Belle" I knew exactly what she meant!!! And if that was all it would have been more than enough and we would never ever be able to express our gratitude for all that he has done to make this visit extra special. Then we returned to our room and there was a photo album with the photos of the night before and trinkets fro the girls. WOW... Speechless...Priceless...Unforgettable...Thank You
