I failed at being tour guide on this ride for sure. I was so excited for him to get to ride the actual ride I spaced out all the fun stuff in the queue. Although, to my credit, I hadn't been to DL in about 14-15 years, and didn't remember all that fun stuff, and secondly, because we were making such great timing on all the rides so far, didn't want to jinx it by stopping.

Ok, almost the first ride comparison you make, and you screw it up. So your fired! But now I am looking forward to trying this again, maybe now I can finally beat Smidgy.

Space Mountain is something too that I can't wait to try over at Land, now that you did a good job of describing.

And I too am amazed at how small the castle there looks.
Wow, doesn't even look like a castle, I think Bilbo Baggins lived in a larger home.

Can't wait to hear about the Matterhorn, that's something I know absolutely nothing about.
thanks Mike

Here’s a few more pics I took on the ride, before my first battery officially died for the day.

OOoooh, I HATE that! The only time I was at DL ('04) my battery died about 5 minutes in... was barely up Main Street!!


Ah. The mail. Forgot we need to send out the first batch of postcards.

Thanks again for the postcard!!


SCORE! 2 Dole Whip Floats all for me.

Ok, I shared. It would be un-gentleman like of me not to do so. That and I would’ve probably landed up with a black eye. Or worse.

I’ve read many comments about the float being better than just the whip by itself. Naturally I had to see for myself. Although good, I still like the whip by itself. Save the pineapple juice for Mai Tai’s. Oh right, no alcohol served here either.

I prefer the float, but only if you get the pinapple/vanilla swirl. Then the sharpness of the juice is offset by the vanilla part of the Whip. But yeah, it would be altogether better with rum.


And with this break, we’ll break so I can write the next chapter.
Thanks! Enjoying all the details.

Yes, we left off where you were going to send my 200 Disney dollars cuz they were going to expire in 2013 anyway, and you knew that we could use them.


(Insert Jeopardy Theme Music Here)

Every time I try mentally, I keep coming up with Green acres.
"Oh, Olivah"




















Ok, I'm back. I remember now.

Wow, when your mind goes blank, your computer does too.

Last we left our traveling duo, EMH was over and they were setting out for the Matterhorn.



Ok, for good TR reporting sake, let’s pretend I’m managed to climb the Matterhorn Mountain.

Right. Since we are playing pretend, can I also pretend you then fell off and were dashed on the rocky tourists below? Or would that be the trusty rocks below?

After climbing the Matterhorn, I figured Lady H may be getting a little lonely waiting for me to come back down; so I jumped off the mountain so we can continue on with our DL day. Hey, if Secret Ponzi Man can stop the purse snatchers, I can climb the Matterhorn.

Gee, I wish I could exaggerate stuff like that once in a while and make things up. Gotta be a lot less painfull.

Anyways, after climbing the Matterhorn (as I stated before) Lady H and I decided we might as well give the ride a try. Another short wait. Wish the wait would’ve been a little longer though. I wasn’t prepared for the beating I would take on this ride. After riding a smooth Space Mountain, this ride was rough.

Yeah? go on.

Smidgy, you don’t have to worry about the heights too much on this ride. You spend a lot of time going in and out of the mountain, that you hardly ever notice the height factor. Just make sure and wear knee and elbow pads. It wasn’t completely horrible. There were a few parts that were pretty smooth, but overall I found it to be a rough ride. Might have been a little smoother if I wasn’t trying to take video and actually held on.

Ok, now right here it sounds a lot like Everest. Yes? No?

After suffering whiplash, (ok that may be exaggerating just a little) we toured the rest of Fantasyland. I had heard about Mr. Toads Wild Ride and how people miss it over at WDW. We had to see for ourselves what the hype was about. The wait again was only 5-minutes. On the ride, Lady H drove and she kept wrecking into all the walls and stuff. See if I ever let her drive again. If really was a cute ride.

I miss it. I'd rather have the Toad, warts and all over Pooh and his honey pot.
Hmm, that whole sentance sounds like it's fresh out of Hustler, doesn't it?



“Feed me Seymour.”

Youknow, I still by that Betty Crocker product now and then just so I can sing in the kitchen when I'm making it, "Suddenly Susan, standing beside me,"






Needless to say, Lady H had never tried a Dole Whip and I learned where in the Land to buy them. There’s a stand close to the Enchanted Tiki Room that sells them. Well at least we thought that’s where we could get one. We walk up and it’s CLOSED. I hope it’s not closed all day. We’ll try again a little later.

I think it was a Dole Float we tried once, and I wasn't too impressed. But it's the orange/vanilla swirl thing I've been trying to get for the last 7 trips that keeps eluding me.

Since we’re in the area, Indiana Jones is close by. Let’s go see how long the wait is. Only 10-minutes. Cool, lets go. Boy we are just breezing through DL this morning. My theory of going during this time of year so far has proven to be right. We’re practically walking onto each ride.

that's just great. As compared to me who ends up crawling into/onto most rides.
Or being carried.






Don't know what these tablets were or said. Probably some kind of warning to turn back and run for your life. Since I don't read hieroglyphics, we pursued on.

Hold on a moment, I can read Hiero,,,,,uh huh, yes,,, ok, I got it.

"Road construction next 24 miles."




My dear friend Nebo wants a ride comparison here, as I’m sure some of you do to. Indiana Jones compared to it’s WDW counterpart, Dinosaur. Truthfully I really don’t know how to compare these 2 rides. If you love Dinosaur, you’ll love Indy. As far as the ride vehicle goes, it’s the same. In Dino, they call it a time machine; in Indy it’s a jeep. Of course the adventure is different, but each have points where you go slow, speed up, make sharp turns and the person riding next to you eventually winds up in your lap. And because each offers it’s own story, it makes each ride worth riding to experience the differences. I really don’t have a favorite here because of the different story lines. This comparison is best experienced in person.

sWell, very good at taking the stand you did.
Tell me, do those little xpoints on the top of the fence start to hurt?




Blame Nebo. He asked for ride comparison's. Remember?

Yep, might as well, they're still blaming the dinosaur extinction on me.
Oh, and if I hadn't milked Mrs. O'Leary's cow.......


Now there are some similarities and major differences between MK and DL PotC. The first major difference is the queue. MK’s queue gets pretty dark, pretty quick.

Tell me!

Not so much at DL. Most of the queue is outside. Even when you come in, it does get dark, but not like at MK. The Blue Bayou restaurant is also part of DL’s queue. It adds a nice touch for the beginning and ending of the ride. Once you enter the ride, it feels like you’re in a swamp. As you go through, you enter a little room before taking not one, but 2 drops. After the 2nd drop, you see a bunch of skeletons. I don’t remember if there’s any at the beginning over at MK, but there were sure a lot more at DL. This is one of the major differences from the MK version. As you go along, you soon see the mist and the projection of Davy Jones. Blackbeard has yet to be added. The next few scenes are pretty similar. Barbossa on the pirate ship, the village call girls, pirates chasing wenches around the village, village on fire and the jail cells. If my memory serves me correct, after the jail cells at MK, you get to the end where Captain Jack is sitting in a chair surrounded by riches. At the end at DL, you have one more scene before getting to Captain Jack. Once you pass Captain Jack, a big conveyor belt takes you up, up and away. You have to jump ship and swim back to shore. So all you WDW fans, turn away again; score one more for DL. At least in my books. The added scenes seemed to make PotC at DL just a little better.



Anyone read Riglee’s report? Remember what they would do on dark rides? We’re on our anniversary. So we only did some snogging on part of the ride. If you know where to look for Hidden Mickey’s, some of the same one’s are here as well.

Right, from snoggin immediately to hidden Mickeys.



Lady H graciously let me have the front and she sat right behind me.



Fool. One thing I have learned in Disney; the closest to the front you sit on a water type ride, the wetter yoiu will get.







Only attraction we rode was Roger Rabbit’s (no relation) Car Toon Spin. His wife is one hot............................

Hi Lady H. Don’t worry, she’s not real. I only got love for you.

The ride, very similar to Mr. Toad and WtP. Only difference here is the car spins and you control how it spins. After the ride, we looked around Toontown for a while.

Oh boy, something new.

SCORE! 2 Dole Whip Floats all for me.


That and I would’ve probably landed up with a black eye.

Is that like a Black Cow?







Before we go on the monorail, we stop inside Innoventions. This reminds me of the Carousel of Progress in the manner that the building rotates. CoP does rotate right? I can’t quite remember if I saw it rotating; or if I was suffering from heat exhaustion and just imagined it was rotating. Could be the beers I had at Planet Hollywood. Anyways, Innoventions does rotate and we went in to check it out. Not before I took these.

So, there's no CoP in California?






12 noon and we finished DL in half a day. Well most of DL. EMH and low crowds really helped us get through the lines quick throughout the morning. As you can tell, they were really starting to pick up so we decided now was good time to take a break.

And with this break, we’ll break so I can write the next chapter.
Yeah, great chapter my friend, I even learned something.

[BGreat pics Tman! we were over at DCA that morning. We had an early pass holders entry day we were able to use so we could see Cars land. Went to DL later in the day and the lines were ok then too. Not as good as at rope drop but we were able to do quite a bit.
They were closing HM so they could put the Jack Skellington overlay on it. It stays that way thru christmas.
we just rode the new matterhorn the other night and found it to be really smooth. before it was so bumpy and jerky we had stopped going on it at all. But we were surprised at how improved it is.

We are going to the MNSSHP for the first time on friday... sooo excited

as far as comparisons go I agree that our buzz is better as the guns can be held up
we like their space mtn better tho.

We rode the new Matterhorn early in the day, and it was super-bumpy. It jarred my joints. People told me it gets smoother later in the day. Don't know if that's true or not.

It's almost impossible not to compare the two parks so don't apologize or blame Nebo, it's uncontrollable.


I've only ever had one dole whip and wasn't impressed but I like Smidgy's rum idea! BTW did your father really wake you up that way? Cool Dad!

Ponzi, the castle really is that small but you can walk through it and t tells the tale of Sleepy Beauty. It used to be a hidden gem.

Sounds like you guys had a great day, nothing better than not having to go commando and still getting to see the whole park in one day.

You didn't fail. You were just as excited as I was. We'll just have to remember for next time.

Sorry everyone. Looks I'm done with my part of the TR. Nebo fired me.


In my defense though (no I'm not going quietly) our last trip to WDW (2 years ago) was the first time we ever rode Buzz. And we only rode it once so it was kinda hard for me to remember all the details. I know, no excuses, but that's all I got.

You might be right. I think everyone is used to Cinderella's castle that when they see this, it's hard to believe the size.

You had me baffled here. Only thing I could thing of was that you hadn't read my latest chapter yet, until I saw your break down a little later.

My battery will usually last about a good 6 hours before kicking the bucket. Depending on how many pictures I take and if I do video or not. So it was weird this one only lasted 3 hours or so. Brand new battery to.

Both yes and no. Mostly no.

On Everest, you can actually see how high you get on the climb up. It's mostly outside except for the few portions you go through the mountain. Matterhorn is more like riding through caves and mostly inside the mountain throughout the entire ride.

Everest is faster and smoother. Matterhorn has some decent speed and I found it to be a little bit bumpy.
Everest goes backward. Matterhorn is all forward.

Both are fun, but I prefer Everest a little bit better.

Ok, score one for WDW now.

Come to think about it, I don't know if they offered the Pineapple/Vanilla or the Orange/Vanilla at the stand. I never bothered to look since I already knew what I wanted.

And this exactly why I like the front seat. I for one don't mind getting wet. I know many don't like to. As I mentioned, it was starting to get hot so it actually felt pretty good.

How we known you were over at DCA, we could've met up with you. We probably crossed each other at some point. Lady H and I went over to DCA in the afternoon. Talk about this in the next chapter.

Sorry to say, we never rode Matterhorn again throughout the entire trip. We'll try it again next trip for sure. Since this was our first trip together and we hadn't been to DL in such a long time, I think we were trying to fit in as much as we could.

Have fun at MNSSHP.
