I think I wet myself?

Let's see.. for a skipper.. when he falls off the boat does he get wet, or does the water get him instead?

Another 24 hour workday, Disney?

Are you kidding me? As if one of those 24 hour long Disney days wasn't enough, you're going to do yet another one? Have you thought of asking the rest of your hard working happy not-so-lucky Pygmy slaves, erm, employess, erm, "Cast Members?" Unlike your lifeless Small World dolls, Pygmies have a life outside of the theme parks! Hard as it may seem, it's true! Yup, after I've nearly missed throwing my spears at the last boat load of lackluster tourists, I head over with the guys to Chief Namee's Cannibal Cafe for some finger sandwiches, elbow maccaroni, and toast with toejam and jelly. I let him know that his wife makes a very fine dinner, and the chief turns to me and would say "Yes she sure does, but I really am going to miss her" and we both laugh at the absurdity of that, since his wife doesn't taste good reheated as leftovers. But that's beside the point, the point is, I'm ranting about Disney's cheap gimmicks and tricks.

Jungle Cruise has a theme song now?

I'd say it's about time my ride has a theme song! I've had my own theme song for quite a while now before I discovered this beauty of a song. A couple things to note while listening to this song:

1) He sings his song (decently, but could be worse so I'm not complaining.)

2) There are no lyrics posted (neither a bouncing ball to follow either, what a shame.)

3) This is ONE of several songs made just for the Jungle Cruise!

Jungle Cruise with live actors?

I might be confusing my experience on a ride at Busch Gardens, but when I was about 5 or 6 (a long time ago ) I keep thinking there were live actors at the native camp on the left side when you make the curve to the left before you enter the temple. Were there any actors on the side, or was it just my imagination?

I'm closing my blog down . . . forever

Ha! April Fools! . . . wait a sec, I'm a bit late on that one. Where did all the time go? Since when did the Spice Girls get back together? Who fed my goldfish? What's happened to my blog? Well, I think my blog is tired of me walking out on it every so often, so that I'm not even allowed to live under my rock anymore, I've moved up to the dog house! I'm really digging the sound of having a roof over my head now held up by four wooden walls, with a doorway, how cool is that? The downside is, I'm gonna have to work even harder this time to win my blog's heart back! Over the next few weeks, you'll probably see me toying around with all the new blog functions and tricks blogger came up with, because you all know me and playing with other people's, and blog's buttons *insert evil laugher here.* In the meantime, whoever still manages to follow this blog, and read through all my nonsense, thanks for your loyalty, and for that, I'll keep this blog going for your entertainment! Just do me a favor please, and let me know what you'd like to see on here, any questions for Ask A Skipper? Anything you'd like me to rant about for the War Rant? Got a cool place you'd like me to check out? Anything fun or gamey? Let me know! I'd love to hear from you! Comment below, send me an email, I'm even on Facebook!

Disney quotes and contact info

The recent news about Magic Kingdom serving alcohol has stirred up quite the commotion, and several are using and abusing Disney quotes. I think it's time I started pulling some quotes from the man who started the mouse house, Walt Disney:

When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.
-Walt Disney

Or heritage and ideals, our code and standards - the things we live by and teach our children - are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings.
-Walt Disney

Disneyland is a work of love. We didn't go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money.
-Walt Disney

We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together.
-Walt Disney

We did it Disneyland, in the knowledge that most of the people I talked to thought it would be a financial disaster - closed and forgotten within the first year.
-Walt Disney

Magic Kingdom to serve alcohol

. . . um, what did I just type in the Title? Yes folks, you read correctly. After 41 years of being a dry park, they will now start serving Beer and Wine in Be Our Guest as part of the Fantasyland expansion. From what I've heard, Disney's been finding a way to sell alcohol to MK for quite some time, but find a way to sneak it in under the guise of "adding to the theme and ambiance of French cuisine." Now, before I start jumping to conclusions about how dinner drinks in MK will then result to beer carts every 30 feet down Main Street, consider the fact that EPCOT started off with two places in the World Showcase to serve alcohol, Mexico and UK in restaurants. If we were to take a stroll through the countries now, you'll notice that there's even more locations to buy some ice cold beer, or any other drink native to the representing country. Now, what makes me think that Disney wouldn't do the same with MK? We all know how once they find a gold mine, they'll do whatever they can to cash out as much as they can.
