Splash Mountain

In Which Jenn Luckily Already Has A Splash Mountain Souvenir

No doubt by now you’ve heard about how Splash Mountain in the Magic Kingdom had a 240 minute wait yesterday- for the gift shop. People were queuing up for a legit 2-hour wait to buy endangered ride merch. Sure, that’s kind of insane, but I do get the urge – Splash Mountain is a great ride, and as much as I’m down for the Princess & The Frog redo for a variety of reasons, I’ll miss it. It would be nice to have a memento. Alas, I’m not sure I’ll be back to WDW before it shuts down for the refurb,...

In Which Jenn Joins The Splash Mountain Fray

Sooo I waffled back and forth about whether to post this, but here we are. I had a Twitter conversation about Splash Mountain’s announced re-theme on Thursday evening in which I was pleased with some of the points I made. I took some screenshots with the intention of posting them here on Friday, but after thought decided against it. I’m not trying to get anyone cancelled, and others may disagree with me with civility if that’s their wont. However, while I debated peacefully enough on Twitter, I have since seen it has gotten rather uglier in other corners of...

In Which Jenn & Elizabeth Are Splash Mountain Virgins

JENN: And now we welcome once again one of my favorite traveling companions, Elizabeth. So! Splash Mountain! What do you recollect? A constant refrain when going through my WDW photos:“Who’s that guy?” ELIZABETH: Well let me see, I remember enjoying the ride! It was slightly strange because I never saw Song of the South, so the characters weren’t familiar like they were on all the other rides. Compared to water rides i was used to as a ride at amusement parks and such, it was waaay longer because of the dark ride elements you go through first, which I...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/11/14

So ends the trip report proper. 🙁 But I’m not quite finished! As I have in the past, I’ saved our ADRs for a final food review post or two. You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward!  Last day. BLARG. My morning largely consisted of packing a final few items. It could’ve been worse – at least I had a solid chunk of the day left to spend in WDW. Poor DeJanea had to leave early in the morning to catch a flight home. Sad stuff. Speaking of flights, we had received our Magical Express...

The Jenn Method of Haranguing Moon Into Riding Roller Coasters

JENN: Okay, so today’s topic is one that is near and dear to my heart: The Jenn Method for Haranguing Moon Into Riding Roller Coasters. MOON: NO. JENN: YES. MOON: … Okay. JENN: Annnd that’s it! Thanks everybody for your time. Nothing a good punch in the face can’t cure. No, but seriously: First I would like us all to cast our minds back, back, back to 2008, and our very first WDW trip of the modern era. Moon has never been a roller coaster sort of person, but because WDW coasters tend to (mostly) be on the milder...
