When redditor Ihaveanotheridentity began his Ask Me Anything session on Thursday, he subtitled it, “This post is not for those who wish to preserve the Disney Magic.” Turns out the man who played Goofy at Disney World was completely wrong about that, because if you read through his lengthy question-and-answer session, there were at least three times where he might have made you cry. And it was because of the Disney magic he previously said he wouldn’t disclose.
