Photographic Memory: Pre-Tinker Bell Half Marathon 2014

JENN: We haven’t done a Photographic Memory in forever, so let’s do a really good one now. I LOVE THIS PICTURE. MOON: The good days! JENN: This is us waiting around in corral B for the 2014 Tinker Bell Half Marathon in Disneyland, back before they moved it to May. January weather in Anaheim! MOON: Why May? o_O JENN: I dunno. It’s Mother’s Day Weekend or some such. They have a Star Wars Half in January now. MOON: Star Wars?! Oh, barf. Oh, wait, that’s a Disney thing now, right? JENN: Yup, they own it! I don’t think most people were pleased with the change, but whatever....

Photographic Memory: The Inappropriate Puppets of Dinoland U.S.A.

JENN: Photographic Memory time! Did you see the pics I want to use? MOON: Ah, yes. The dinosaur puppets! JENN: Here we have Moon helpfully modeling dinosaur puppets from the big gift shop in Dinoland U.S.A. – I believe it’s called Chester and Hester’s Souvenirs of Extinction or something like that? These pictures are from December 2008, so the details for me are fuzzy, but my caption in the Facebook album says something about pterodactyl porn…? The implication is that it’s an inside joke for you that I don’t understand. We are probing the dark, seedy underbelly of Disney excursions, clearly. MOON: Haha, you...

Photographic Memory: Two Moons Meet Two Sheep In DAK

JENN: Okay, I am SUPER EXCITED for this Photographic Memory because I’m fairly certain it proves that Moon is a time traveler. Behold this scene from Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Conservation Station! Look at the clothes. Look at the joyous faces. Look at the love of sheep. THAT SMALL CHILD IS MOON VISITING HER FUTURE SELF. MOON: I wonder when I get to do this… JENN: Past you is way more technologically advanced than future you. MOON: A future me as a younger self going to visit adult me. Or maybe I missed something JENN: Incidentally, Moon LOVES sheep. Have we mentioned that? MOON: I...

Photographic Memory: Terror In Radiator Springs

JENN: It’s a Photographic Memory! This is the on-ride photo from our trip on Radiator Springs Racers in Disney’s California Adventure. I was initially super bummed when I realized I had forgotten to include this in the relevant portion of our trip report, but then I realized it was a golden Photographic Memory opportunity. Moon is in the picture. Trust me. MOON: It appears I’m hiding! That one is pretty recent. CA, right? JENN: Yup, from our trip in January. Do you recall your experience on Radiator Springs Racers? MOON: Hmm, well, I was expecting it to be pretty much the same as...

 In anticipation of the Christmas WDW trip Jenn leaves for tomorrow, we give you – A POST WITH MOON!MOON: I was honored with the task of picking a photo for today’s post! I give you: the nutcracker. JENN: Directly from Epcot’s Germany pavilion in December 2008! MOON: A telling photo of our differing physical grace. This was my first solo trip with to WDW with Jenn.

Photographic Memory: The Sherpas of Expedition Everest

JENN: Photographic Memory time! MOON: Okay! So, we’re going to discuss another of Jenn’s favorite photos. This one is… from Expedition Everest, right? JENN: Yup! It’s posted on the wall as you enter the final room in the queue. MOON: I was TERRIFIED the first time. At least there were amusing things on the walls to keep my mind off of IMPENDING DOOM. JENN: Oh, psh, eventually you got there. 🙂 Moon and I have a great fondness for Sherpas. MOON: Yes we do! JENN: Do you want to tell the O’Bryan story? MOON: How much of an orchestral...

Photographic Memory: Our Friend the Epcot Outlet

JENN: It’s time for another Photographic Memory! First a little background: Moon and I went down to WDW in December of 2008. We rode Mission: Space a billion times, because Moon LOOOOVES Mission: Space. I mean, I too love Mission: Space, but Moon LOOOOOOOOOVES Mission: Space! Orange side only, please. We’ve never even ridden green. MOON: I looooooove space. This has nothing to do with WDW, but I hope the next Grand Theft Auto game is on the moon. Who cares about this city business. I want to rocket into space. But yeah, Mission: Space has a huge dork...

Photographic Memory: Carnotaurus? You hardly know us!

First of all, the pun in the post title is entirely Jenn’s fault. Don’t blame Moon for that. It was out of her control. Anyway – welcome to the first post in our series Photographic Memory, in which we discuss… wait for it… the memories we have attached to photos from WDW. Sometimes the photo itself might not even be that good or high in quality (see below), but if we’ve got a story about it to share it’s fair game! This particular picture is from the on-ride photo taken of your Time Rover when being attacked by the...
