Transportation the Disney Way

We agree with them- do you?


Last weekend I flew to Orlando for a somewhat ill-fated weekend at Disney World with my mom and aunt. Let’s just say my 12-hour delayed flight home was not the worst of the problems…

Nevertheless, I love Disney World, and since my mom and aunt had never been, it was fun to explore everything with them. I love Disney because of the emphasis on imagination and creativity, and the details that permeate everything. This was my fourth trip since 2001, but the first time I stayed in a Disney resort, the Caribbean Beach Resort. I have to say, it was pretty great to be so connected to the parks.

Now that I work in the transportation industry, I saw this trip in a whole new way. I’ve always loved the monorail, even as a small child at Disneyland, and the train that circles the Magic Kingdom, and…

Disney Must-Do: Splash Mountain!

Your thoughts on Splash Mountain?

Disney for Five+

Splash Mountain is a log flume ride, and yet it’s so much more than just a log flume ride. It’s a wonderful combination of drifting lazily along a mellow river, being entertained by the antics of Br’er Rabbit, and experiencing the thrill of several smaller drops that lead to the big one: a five-story plunge! After the finale, you’ll be humming “zip a dee doo dah” as you check out your ride picture (which is taken during the big drop).

Recently, two of my boys wanted to do Splash Mountain as our last ride of the day. It was almost park closing time, so we hustled on over there. We just barely made it to the queue entrance as a cast member called out, “last call for Splash Mountain!” We rode the last log of the day, and what a thrill it was! I can truly say that there is…

Winnie the Pooh

Love Winnie the Pooh! Do you?

B+ Movie Blog

This may be the purest and most innocent of all the Disney films. I dare you to watch this and not enjoy it.

This is basically a remake of the other Pooh film, even though it’s a sequel. The storyline that they follow, you’ll see, is almost exact. It’s more coherent as a plot, so there are differences, but you’ll see a lot of the general situations are exactly the same (some are more fleshed out, some less, but it’s all very similar). And that’s totally fine, because this film is magical.

I am, will will remain, a staunch defender of this film. It is so simple and beautiful. I refuse to believe any child under 6 will not enjoy this. It’s amazing.
