Kill/Refurb/Marry: Disney Mountains

This area is being refurbished

So I’m, like, a full 24 hours late on this week’sĀ Kill/Refurb/Marry. No grand excuse; I was on vacation and I forgot about the monthly blog hop. I have had this happen before and just let the month slide, but NOT THIS TIME. Not when we’re talking Disney Mountains!

But first, a question: when we say Disney Mountains, do we mean that in the literal sense; namely, do we mean the traditional triumvirate of Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad found at Disney parks worldwide? Is Expedition: Everest eligible, being as it is subtitled a mountain?* Does the Fantasmic stage count?** Looks pretty mountainous to me.

* Yes.
** No.

Settle in: judgments begin now.

Kill: The Magic Kingdom’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

I’m sorry! I know it hurts. But BTMRR, while adorable and magnificently themed, is a glorified kiddie coaster. (Never mind that both Moon and my mother find it terrifying; they are wimps, wimping along wimpily. šŸ˜‰ Because of Moon’s aforementioned terror, I did not experience Disneyland’s BTMRR during our Tink trip, so maybe it’s a little beefier?

Refurb: The Magic Kingdom’s Space Mountain

Disneyland’s Space Mountain has music and lights and an overlay and – this is important – CARS YOU CAN GET INTO AND OUT OF WITHOUT FALLING ON YOUR FACE, EXPOSING YOUR UNDERWEAR, OR OTHERWISE LOOKING LIKE A RAGING IDIOT. I want the MK’s version to have cars that don’t make me look like a raging idiot!
