In Which Jenn Might Be In Your Disney Photo Album RIGHT NOW

Do you ever wonder, with all your trips to Disney parks, how many random strangers have random photos and video of you?

Billy Collins can explain:

Think about it – all the times you walked into someone’s photo because you didn’t notice the guy several feet away snapping a pic, or the many, many more times you walked behind a group posing. All the on-ride pictures, where your Splash Mountain log is filled out with any number of people you don’t know, and on Expedition Everest when the girl in front of you put her arms up too and her hand is covering your face. How many dads with video cameras have panned the crowd and captured your likeness? How often, really, do you show up on YouTube???

I wonder about that sometimes. And I looked forward to the day that I post a photo with a face you recognize – or maybe the other way around!

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 the Epcot ride.

JENN: Test Track, you mean?

MOON: Yeah. I remember there was a hill and that made things unhappy for me. I’m a HUGE baby.

JENN: Oh, there was not. There were DIPS. This is not the same.

MOON: You say dip, I say die.

JENN: But I just want to point out the photographic evidence that I protected you!

MOON: That you did! I survived to tell the tale.

JENN: Did you feel safer? Do you feel safer for the future, knowing I’m there?

MOON: I would give it another try if you’re there. 😉

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 carnotaurus. Most people show varying levels of fear and alarm. Moon, on the other hand…

Top right. The one who has clearly seen much more impressive dinosaurs in her time.

JENN: The interesting thing about Dinosaur is that people I take on it who aren’t big on roller coasters tend to LOVE it. The less adventurous Moon of old is a case in point.

MOON: Well, to be fair: DINOSAURS.

JENN: Well, yes, but: SCARY DINOSAURS.

MOON: Who wouldn’t love that?

JENN: Children. Small children wouldn’t love that. The first time through was kinda terrifying!

MOON: I was brought up on The Land Before Time and I still love the ride. And not all of the dinosaurs are scary. 😛

JENN: Oh, don’t get me wrong – the ride is awesome. But then I’ve conditioned myself through multiple rides. And also I am braced by the soothing tones of Bill Nye the Science Guy telling me all about extinction.

MOON:  Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill…

JENN: What I love about this particular photo is how blase Moon looks. “Oh. It’s you.”

MOON: Okay, so the most exciting part of the ride for me (besides being completely in the dark –  Jenn can confirm how much I love to be scared) is the sauropod… because he’s a vegetarian. 😀

JENN:  Hahaha, the first time we rode you yelled out “ME TOO!”

MOON: I guess I should say herbivore…

JENN: It was a moment of hilarity slicing through the fear.

MOON: <3

JENN:
No, but seriously, guys, ride Dinosaur. It’s awesome. Especially if you keep your eyes open the entire time, which I’ve totally done before and I didn’t have to work up to or anything. What? Your MOM is scared of Dinosaur. Shut up.
