We all know how FAST kids are. And we also know what heroes dogs are! Those two facts came crashing together today at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. During the afternoon Cavalcade on Hollywood Boulevard, Pluto’s quick puppy paws snagged a kiddo from running into Minnie Mouse‘s vehicle! What a dog!
Pluto Saves the Day!
At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there’s a fun Fab Five (and more) cavalcade to add some much-needed magic to the Parks. Mickey and Minnie Mouse ride atop convertible cars, with friends walking alongside and behind. Pluto, Chip, Dale, Fancy Nancy, Vampirina, and more join in the fun as the cars slowly drive by Disney Guests.
Facebook user Jodie was enjoying the parade during the February afternoon when the unthinkable happened. A quick kid slipped off the curb and into the cavalcade, nearly falling into Minnie’s moving vehicle. A quick-thinking and sure-footed Pluto was walking alongside the vehicle and ended up catching the tot before the unthinkable happened. Minnie’s car stopped immediately, and as you can see by Jodie’s photo below (Disney guests were blacked out for privacy), a parent was right on the kid’s heels.
Jodie snapped this photo after everything was safe, and the child had gotten up after falling into Pluto’s paws. Even the most attentive parent can have a kiddo slip out of their grip at the busy Disney parks. On the post that Jodie created, a former Parade Crew Cast Member weighed in, saying:
Kids are kids. Sometimes you can tell if the parent is actually parenting, other times kids will move fast and in a blink of an eye they’re gone. I used to work Move It, Shake it and we would go over safety briefings for things exactly like this. It’s not the parents fault. The parent wasn’t pushing the kid into the parade or telling the kid to do it. […] But issues like this happen. Let’s just appreciate the Pluto knew what to do and handled it like a good cast member should.
