The Miscellaneous Thought Thread

It's too bad they did it with Space Mountain because you could see inside the dome and watch the glow-in-the-dark rockets speed by. It really added to the wait in line.
Since they sealed that window up during the rebuild to make the ride much darker, that bit of entertainment would be gone from the queue anyway. Great trade-off, though; darker Space Mtn. is better Space Mtn.

It certainly needs something! While I appreciate how dark Space Mountain is these days, I wish there were some points of interest to see on the ride. People always claim the window is the culprit for light leakage into the old mountain. I wonder if they've overlooked that funky satellite, which glowed bright orange and was centrally located. We don't need a return to that but as I've said in other conversations, the old Space Mountain had character, now we just go to space.

Now that I’ve been popping popcorn in my cast iron pot all popcorn will be inferior, even Disneyland. Even Disneyland is hit or miss. Sometimes it’s great but sometimes it’s too salty or so buttery that it the butter literally squirts in your mouth.

The last time I got popcorn at Disneyland, it was honestly kind of stale and not nearly as good as I remember. Didn't want to go through the hassle of asking the lady to make a new batch since it was obvious what was in there had been sitting for way to long.

Are they still serving the chip a tooth or two Mickey ice cream bars that you need to let thaw for 25 minutes at 2pm in July?

🤣

Not sure. The only ice cream I buy inside Disneyland is the firehouse sundae at the Gibson Girl. The prepackaged "Mickey" bars are too pricey/not big enough for my appetite.

LOL just saw the first part of your signature. You don't see that on mobile.

Yeah that was the last time I bought one. I stick to Ghirardelli these days. They make a pretty delicious sundae and have some good mint chip that's great on a warm day.

There is that legendary asteroid that still sits inside the ride- they just don't light it up because it's "too bright" or something.

I refuse to believe that with all the new projection mapping effects, they couldn't do something to illuminate that thing in a way that doesn't detract from the space illusion.

I try to represent the brother/sisterhood. The forum shall never forget the events that transpired that one fateful weekend a month ago.

While we're talking about the best food deals in Disneyland/DCA- one thing I'll concede is better at DCA is the fact they sell the $5 sourdough bread loaves. Those things are massive, delicious, and I can eat one while waiting for the parade/fireworks/rides when I'm back inside Disneyland Park.

Those are pretty good. I love me some sourdough bread but only tend to eat that when someone else gets it and we share.

Almost forgot, if you like sourdough bread or bread in general, Lure Fish House has maybe the best. It’s a small seafood chain, the closest location is in Westlake Village I believe. Really excellent seafood too.

They light up the asteroid at Hong Kong Disneyland and still have projection mappings. The ride is identical except with a few smaller asteroids on sticks.

I miss the Free Tortilla's. It was surprising how many birthdays some folks had in a year.... Nothing like a hot one, then go over to the Boudin Sandwich Shop and grab some butter....

At the Honda Center watching Ice Skating, or actually watching my Wife watch it...
