a lot of people think the "haunted mansion" is childish and not very scary...but what if i told you that one of those old-fashioned trunks in the attic was literally packed with human placentas

what if I told you it was packed with 200-year-old turkey legs

Haunted Mansion rules, fuiud

the placenta and turkey legs are just the icing on the cake, to mix my metaphors a bit...

Moodles, Tuesday, 10 April 2012 21:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

i love the haunted mansion too! but you gotta admit that if piles of human and/or turkey flesh were just kind of heaped everywhere throughout it would really take it to the next level

california adventure is getting a swinging new band of roaming entertainers called "five and dime." they play...instruments?

i'm going to give the artist the benefit of the doubt and assume that's meant to be a whimsical dr. seuss-style horn instrument, and not the tentacle porn it so strongly resembles

Three days until I'm in Disney World! I am a little excited, obv., and I think I'm going to eat at Boma! Flavors of Africa and the gardeny food place in Epcot for my meals.

Be sure to sample those South African wines.

oh my god i had to triple check to make sure kid in blue-green-and-white shirt wasn't my brother-- where is that pic from?

i saw it on the vintage disney tumblr, but it looks like it was originally posted on this blog. taken in 1988?

supreme sundae (reddening), Friday, 20 April 2012 21:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

thanks! pretty sure its not him-- i dont think we made it to disney until '91 anyway-- pretty uncanny though!

disney changes "water-spouting fish" ride element because the piece of plastic going in and out of the fish's mouth looks too phallic. what is it with "the little mermaid" and phalluses, damn.

we need remy updates!

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 30 April 2012 21:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

just got back this morning - i'll aim to update later. had a great time, really loved epcot and animal kingdom. watched disney vets do gut surgery on a goat at the, err 'conservation station' and ate the best buffet food of my life at animal kingdom lodge. wish i'd stayed at the lodge, actually...

fka snush (remy bean), Monday, 30 April 2012 22:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

the fantasyland expansion looks very lovely, but it meant that the MK was greatly reduced. the new art of animation resort looks really amazing, also.

fka snush (remy bean), Monday, 30 April 2012 22:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

what do you mean reduced -- it's smaller?

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 30 April 2012 22:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah. a lot of real estate has been taken over in the building of 'storybook circus.' it's hard to know what to expect – a very odd forced-perspective beauty and the beast castle is rising out of rocks installed behind constuction panels.

fka snush (remy bean), Monday, 30 April 2012 22:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

when I went in February it looked like a physical expansion of Fantasyland not a foreshortening -- ugh.

In a dozen trips since 2001 I STIlL haven't been to Animal Kingdom or the Lodge, despite hearing wonders about Jiko and its South African wine selection.

browsing through amazon, maybe this is the one for me. this one's about epcot. i'm about to go to disney world so I don't want to read something too dark

Bah, I'm leaving for Disney World tonight and none of the bookstores have this book (Walt and the Promise of Progress City)

Here's a good one:

From 1994. Goes into plenty of great detail.

Carl Hiassen's book has good anecdotes beneath the snark.

have to admit that I was kind of bummed to miss it when I visited DCA back in March

Moodles, Friday, 15 June 2012 16:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah i'm seething with jealousy as i read twitter ppl's reactions to it. i don't care about the cars franchise at all but the rides + theming sound pretty top-notch.

i thought disney only associated itself with winners, bad PR move for them frankly

also i'm getting a little creeped out that mitt romney keeps popping up in environs that i frequent, next he'll be posting to twitter about how there's not enough emily/nolan time in this season's revenge

Animatronics will see a similar personalization, so the otherwise obtuse talking robots can specifically acknowledge the people standing in front of them.

No, why that's not creepy at all!

My sister-in-law is taking her family there very soon and they will be doing the MagicBands. I'm curious to see how that goes for them.

Yikes!

There's a fair chance that Disney can pull this off in a non-creepy way. The Kim Possible adventure that they had at Epcot is a good example of a more interactive experience that worked really well.

i might go to disneyland sometime in the next couple of months, for a day. should i?? i grew up with disney stuff and have tons of nostalgic attachment to 50s-60s disneyana. plus i like fun.

My daughter did the interactive Phineas and Ferb quest and loved it. Basically a scavenger hunt with fake cell phones.

Anybody seen the new Fantasyland in WDW yet?

My sis, who visited with her family in November, said the line for the first restaurant serving alcohol in the MK was out the door.
