Tower of Terror

In Which Jenn Wants You To Share Your Tower of Terror Screams With Others

Unlike your larger majority of Disney parks enthusiasts, I don’t have a ton of family memories from Walt Disney World. My parents took me twice, once when I was so young I hardly remember it (beyond my love of Figment and fear of Snow White’s witch), and the other when I was twelve. I do remember some stuff from the latter trip, but it all felt kind of perfunctory.

In Which Jenn & Elizabeth Have the Best Day in Disney’s Animal Kingdom EVER!

JENN: Today I would like to introduce my fantastic pinch hitter, Elizabeth, another victim I have dragged to Walt Disney World on numerous occasions. ELIZABETH: Willing victim! What? No, Jenn didn’t take this photo in Epcot’s Norway pavilion. Liz just always wears that hat. JENN: Incidentally, she seems to have been conditioned from birth to act as my ideal traveling companion. She stays out late, gets up early, will ride just about anything, and – this is the most important one – WALKS FAST. ELIZABETH: It’s all because you have everything PLANNED, which I love. Planning sucks. JENN: See?...
