    Will Splash Mountain's Removal change how often you visit Disneyland?

    It sucks too, since I have a lot of really neat Disneyland stuff and was planning on making my home awesome once I'm finally out of student housing and have a more permanent residence. But now it all just seems a touch tacky.

    Will Splash Mountain's Removal change how often you visit Disneyland?

    I'm weird in the sense that I have little to no emotional attachment to DCA. I love Soarin' over California, and I used to enjoy NPH's California Screamin spiel. And while I enjoyed Tower I guess it never clicked. To me, the biggest loss when Tower was removed is that WDI somehow found a way...

    Will Splash Mountain's Removal change how often you visit Disneyland?

    The two things I would look forward to were Splash and Fantasmic. Both gone within 5 years. I still absolutely love The Haunted Mansion, so I'm definitely gonna go once that finally reopens. And Space and Thunder are phenomenal. But without Splash and Fantasmic I really can't justify the cost...

    I just wish I could have made it past age 23 before saying 'Back in my day Disneyland was way better!" I mean I guess I've been saying that since 2016 but still!

    Will Splash Mountain's Removal change how often you visit Disneyland?

    It's unrealistic for me to say I'll never go- but it's certainly killed my interest in collecting park merchandise, or going as frequently. I also have little desire to pay to go again after Splash is closed, and will only go if someone else is covering the cost of the ticket.

    Remember- it's the same WDI that brought us Chase a Baby! And they're now about to completely reimagine Splash Mountain. Shudder

    A Brief and Incomplete History of Splash Mountain

    I read through your entire Tony Baxter Tour a year or two ago. So many great photos + pieces of art, attraction trivia, and your stories about visiting the park with him were absolutely delightful.

    His Matterhorn safety spiel is intact- though modified to now say "Remain seated with your seat-belt fastened" instead of "Remain seated please", which I believe they stole from the old breakdown spiel.

    Man, if anyone hasn't had the chance to visit Downtown Anaheim it's well worth the trip. So many excellent food options, and the Packing House is absolutely delightful. only about 10 minutes from Mickey and Friends, and the food options are both better and more fairly priced than the tourist...

    News Disneyland Resort CLOSED on March 14th Indefinitely - No Known Reopening Date

    Saw on Facebook that Disney just cancelled the August arrivals for their College Program. I assume they don't think they'll reopen until late August at the earliest.

    A Brief and Incomplete History of Splash Mountain

    I kind of like how you can see pieces of other parts of the ride, it makes it fun to spot things. But that's probably just nostalgia and the 75 times I rode it in 4 months talking... Waving to the watch guy on the last lift was tradition for me and my family growing up. Good times! That's...

    A Brief and Incomplete History of Splash Mountain

    Something I didn't notice until a few years ago is that the Laughin' Place is completely visible on the dip drop if you look to the right, and during the Laughin' Place segment you can see riders go down the dip drop if you look to the right. Once you know to look it's super obvious... but...
