|An empty Main Street USA at the Magic Kingdom at 6 a.m. Christmas decorations were taken down the day before. Our call time was 5 a.m., and we had our hair and makeup done in a backstage Cast Members' cafe.|
|After watching us shiver in the cold, our sweet producers were the first guests in line at the Emporium to buy us Mickey socks and gloves. I've kept them as great mementos of the experience.|
|Because guests (without signed releases) couldn't appear in the commercial, every person you can clearly see in the background is an extra.|
|Erika and I both filmed a scene or two individually at the Electric Umbrella at Epcot's Future World. You can see me in the background with one hand on my hip -- I can't remember if this was before or after a bird pooped on my hair!|
Remember to tune in to LifetimeTV on Monday and to Disney.com or myLifetime.com next week to see the finished products!
