Happy Friday: The Enchanted Laboratory At Busch Gardens Williamsburg

One of the many nice things about being a big fan of Disney parks is that they give you a greater appreciation for and interest in theme parks in general. Liking more things means there are more things we like, if you know what I mean. With that in mind, follow me now on a brief journey into my childhood, a fixture of which was Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Sure, Six Flags America and Kings Dominion were closer to where I lived, but Busch Gardens was worth that extra hour’s drive. Just like Walt Disney World, Busch Gardens Williamsburg has...

Happy Friday: “You Can’t Cry Over Mufasa’s Death & Then Bust A Cap”

Fun fact about me: I love standup comedy! If I’m surfing Netflix, the first place I’ll look is the standup category. That or the horror section. I’m a complicated person. Anyway – a couple weeks ago I happened upon this guy Jordan Conley, who himself happened to mention Disney in his set. This in of itself is not a huge surprise – these people are in entertainment so it comes up now and again – but his take on a Disney gang really did it for me. He and his space rangers are about to knock you to infinity...

Happy Friday: How To Make Virtual runDisney More Realistic

I’ve said it many times before: unfortunately, I’m not all that big on virtual races. Whenever a runDisney race has been cancelled of late, I’ve always taken the refund rather than switch to the virtual version. But there are many who disagree with me, including the thousands who performed a virtual WDW Marathon Weekend race (or 2 or 4) last weekend. One such individual was Justin Stone, who tackled an at-home Dopey Challenge. Not content to simply wear a bib and accept a medal upon the completion of his requisite miles, he decided to make his virtual runDisney experience...

Happy Friday: What Does It Matter? The Christmas Parade’s In The Past!

I just read that since Disneyland has been closed all this time, there will be no Disneyland portion of the Christmas parade during this year’s Disney holiday special. I’d imagine that’s not the only change we’ll see, but at least Tituss Burgess will be there to gently shepherd us through. But this announcement did remind me of yet another song from the seminal sing-along video of my childhood, Disney’s Twelve Days of Christmas: “Here Comes Santa” featuring the Walt Disney World Christmas parade. The nostalgia kinda fills the hole in my heart, y’know? Alas, I could only find one...

Happy Friday: Goofy’s Supplication Methods Are Questionable

This is not my first time expressing both my undying love for an tremendous confusion regarding the Disney Singalong Songs video The Twelve Days of Christmas, a staple of my childhood and possibly the reason my imagination is so… um… boundless. But today I would like to discuss a bit of a sleeper from the tape which has been inexplicably stuck in my head the last couple days. Can I interest you in a trippy dancing fade-in Goofy asking Santa to bring him an elephant as a present? I THOUGHT SO. Like, who art directed this thing? Did they...

Happy Friday: I Am Offended On Behalf Of Bullseye

Since I’ve been posting with less frequency, I’ve tried to make sure that the quality of post has been at the very least personal. You know, something very much in my voice. If not necessarily hard-hitting journalism, at least something only I could write. But I couldn’t help but dust off the ol’ Happy Friday format for this gem. It just feels like important information, you know? Don’t forget, you can follow FRoA on Twitter @fairestrunofall. If you have any questions, leave a comment or email fairestrunofall@gmail.com. See ya real soon!...
