  • The flaw in the cunning plan is assuming these assholes respond to public shaming with anything other than the assertion the constitution guarantees them the right to not have Splash Mountain's theme changed from Song of the South.

    Mouse don't care how you respond.

    They get your money up front.

    If you get bounced for non compliance, you don't get a refund.

    The kind who think the virus is a hoax and will take their masks off as soon as no one is looking.

    The kind of idiot that would risk illness and further viral spreading to eat a $20 hamburger and see a grown human dressed in a Mickey costume.

    Tell them they either put on the mask or they will have to ride It's a Small World nonstop for 12 hours. The music, combined with a message of inclusiveness, tolerance and acceptance, will cause any conservative to crack. They wanted to use it against the prisoners at Gitmo but it was against the Geneva Convention.

    I call bullshiat. no one rides the Carousel of Progress.

    I don't think it's a Scrooge McDuck response at all. If you are willing to drop the exorbitant fees just to get into Disney World and then choose to make an ass of yourself by not wearing your mask you should be removed from the premises without any option for refund. Personally it would amuse me to no end to find out that they were also deregistered at whatever theme hotel they were at as well. To find out that their bags are already packed and waiting for them at the Art of Animation Studio would be Beautiful.

    Screwing up a $10,000 vacation simply because you didn't want to wear a mask should be a fantastic teaching tool. Or maybe just a reminder that picking only one location to vacation at that is so heavily overpriced was a bad idea to start with.

    If you ever go to Disney in the summer you will ride the Carousel of Progress just for the air conditioning. The ride is awful but the relief from the Sun is fantastic.
  • If they're giving the stop the ride and yell for standing up treatment to people not wearing masks, it's a good thing.

    I've seen 2 I wanna get off, ride will not move til you sit down standoffs on carousel.

    On a school trip to Disneyworld, my best friend, who is now a professional composer and musician, got stuck because of mechanical malfunction on "It's a Small World."  I love him with all my heart, but I could not stop laughing at his responses when he was 'released.'  Basically clever iterations of "that was what hell must feel like."

    That Christmas, I bought him one kind gift, and also gave him the "It's a Small World" musical tchachkie I got him.  It's been about 35 years since that trip, and he's only now able to laugh about it, but he still cusses me out.  But he still has the goofy thing on his desk.  =)
  • Remember - the point of even telling this story is to encourage you to go to a Disney property. Please don't do that.

    This - please, please don't go to an amusement park, or theater, or other venue in which you're going to potentially deal with crowds, especially in a situation where social distancing may be impossible. A mask lowers your risk (and that of those around you) but it doesn't negate it - as everyone keeps reminding you, masks are not a substitute for social distancing, and must be used in conjunction with social distancing, sanitization, and other common-sense mitigations like not touching your damned face.

    That happened to a crippled person a few years back. They just couldn't get him off of the boat. And they didn't even have the decency to turn off the music. He was there for hours.

    On "Lucifer", Maze, Hell's master of torture was interrogating a suspect. Lucifer asked her if he was telling the truth.

    Maze: "Three broken ribs, a torn rotator cuff and 10 hours of It's a Small World. He's telling the truth."

    If you visited back in the day where rides were on a ticket system and you paid per-ride and your parents were cheap, you hit up all the freebies you could.  Carousel of Progress, If You Had Wings, the People Mover -- multiple times each.

    I remember that. Great now I have "IF You Had Wings" stuck in my head.

    Yeah, drug dealers always have ways to get new customers.

    I was always into people mover for those breaks. That and a Mr. Tom Morrow.
  • Carousel of Progress has this musty-mildewy under-smell to it. You know they clean it but the smell persists. Probably a good idea to mask up even when there isn't a worldwide pandemic going on (or hoax that the US somehow conned the rest of the world into playing along with, whatever.)

    You *remember* that?  I was at Disneyworld back when they had them, but it was over 40 years ago (weirdly, even though I live on the East Coast I've been to Disneyland 3 times since then, but never Disneyworld).

    Back in the 80s, I *liked* the Peoplemover.  I think it was the "3d effects" of plastering movies on the tubes you rode through.  Also seeing just how small the park is and a lot of the illusions it plays on you (which I think is why they've removed anything like them).  And anything with a short line has the same effect as a "free ride" now (kids now will say how their cheap parents wouldn't spring for the "butt in line" pass).
  • Anaheim gutted their Carousel of Progress a few years ago and turned it into the Star Wars Launch Bay (pre-Galaxy's Edge). Star Wars props, costumes, models on display, meet & greet with Chewbacca & Vader, an the requisite Gift Shop. Not sure what they're going to do with it now, since most of that has moved to Galaxy's Edge; although they can still use it as a staging point for the Jedi Academy experience (kids getting to play Jedi for a bit in the Tomorrowland Terrace). Before that, around the time of Iron Man 3, they turned it into Stark Expo, where they were displaying the armor suits, some MCU related video games, Smart Home demonstrations/displays, and Marvel meet & greets.
  • I'm still pissed that they got rid of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

    /that ride was trippy
