Last night at the T-Rex restaurant in Downtown Disney, my worst nightmare happened. One of those huge aquariums dotting the restaurant ruptured, spewing fish-water on diners. Now, for normal people, this would just be a weird story to tell friends and family, but for me, just reading this story makes my heart beat faster and my palms get a little sweaty. I have possibly one of the weirdest fears ever: aquarium fish. I'll wait until you're done laughing. I'll try to get it together long enough to bring you guys the facts.

According to reports, Disney cast members cleared guests from the area started scooping fish into buckets and, in some instances, even climbed inside the tank to save the fish. I can't even imagine. I have trouble sitting in a restaurant that has fish swimming around in a glass cage. There's no way I would have hung out to get video, like the brave folks above.,0,4406789.story
