The Fantasyland dark rides tend to have buffers to transition between scenes of wildly different emotions. If Snow White was designed like Pooh, after exiting the cottage you'd immediately be inside the Witch's Cottage.

Yeah buffers are better some with the older stuff but I don’t find that to negatively effect the experience on Pooh personally. With that said, the only place Pooh doesn’t have one is between the Blustery and rainy day and I’m not really sure it needs one there.

Snow White is hardly a great example though. I’d say Snow White in it’s current form is much more “disjointed” than Pooh.

Pooh’s last couple of scenes are so hilariously stupid:

“Wake up, Pooh! Wake up! It’s your birthday!!!”

This could have been wonderful if they’d just added one final line for Pooh: “I’m so confused.”

What the heck is going on with the weather this fall? It's been unseasonably cool, and we've had several bouts of rain in September and early October already! Now today, it's cold and drizzly, with heavier rain about to move in to OC this afternoon. It's like late January, but it's only late October.

Here's the Mattercam just a few minutes ago. This is not Seattle, it's Anaheim. In October???

California had some of the most rain in history I believe over the last few days. Here in NorCal outside Sacramento it was storming so hard the last few days I had never seen anything like it, something like 5.5" or so in 24 hours. It went from 90+ degree weather almost halfway through October to some of the heaviest rainfall in history in like 2 weeks or so. Crazy hot to crazy rain. Looks like some of that is reaching SoCal now. But I guess we need to get used to more extreme weather considering global warming, it doesn't just make everywhere hotter all the time it leads to more cases of these extremes in weather.

I know the bomb cyclone has been pretty bad especially up north, but I am glad at least it's a sign we're on our way out of fire season. Maybe we have to worry about flooding next, though. 😅

A neighboring community that suffered through wildfire a couple of months ago was evacuated AGAIN during this storm because of the risk of mudslides from the burn scar. Welcome to California. :(

Watching the numbers increase on this is my new favorite thing.
Also, for what it's worth, according to the forbidden site, they claim that this petition is being shared by former Imagineers.


And for the record, just incase anyone is planning to chime in with "AkShUaLlY pEtITiOnS dOn'T wOrk..." I fully realize that it will take something far more significant than a bunch of online signatures to enact any real change...

It would require a shareholder revolt. And I don't see that happening.

But if creating an online petition and getting people to sign make some happy because they think they are doing something..... 🤷‍♂️

I have no candy left for Trick or Treaters, so I turned off the house lights and just relaxed in the dark playing Animal Crossing’s Halloween event... but then I ran out of virtual candy for the villagers, so now my Animal Crossing character is sitting in his virtual house in the dark playing Animal Crossing...

Oh my gosh, Halloween is back in full force and I'm pooped! 🥱

I'm just now sitting down with a glass of wine after several hours of craziness at my door. Dozens and dozens of kids were out this year, and I loved it!

As a way to prevent myself from being pranked by the local high school kids (Go Spartans!), I always give out full-size candy bars; either Hershey's With Almonds, or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. The precious children of 2013 who got those big Hershey bars from me are now the crummy pumpkin smashing teens of 2021, but they leave my house alone because of years of goodwill that I literally bought when they were younger. 🤣

Cultural Trends of 2021: Star Wars is dead. A few years ago that's all I got at my door was Star Wars costumes, but it's not happening this year, America has moved on (don't tell Chapek or WDI). Marvel was huge, lots of Captain Americas and various superheros. That Squid Game thing of track suits and fencing masks which I really don't understand was well represented this year by the older kids. Also lots of Princesses, Pixies, Fairies, etc. for the girls. Oddly, I saw three different examples of Flintstone costumes this year. And video game robot things that are hard to explain, but I bet you got them at your door too.

I also give out gift baskets of See's Candy, one for Best Girl Costume, one for Best Boy Costume, and one for Best Family Costume. The 2021 winners were...

Best Girl - A young girl who showed up as, bizarrely, a Toddler's N' Tiaras beauty pageant contestant. Complete with those fake teeth they wear, and a giant Dolly Parton wig. And she did that creepy head bobble and huge smile. I know the family from one street over and know their daughter is otherwise completely normal, so I could tell she was making fun of it to great effect. Winner!

Best Boy -
This young guy who had this giant inflatable dinosaur costume, about 7 feet tall. It was the oddest thing, it was literally an inflatable dinosaur somehow powered by a small onboard air compressor, a towering Tyranosaurus Rex. With a window he could look out of in its chest, like a Disneyland character. And after he said "Trick or treat!" he said "I may be extinct, but I still need candy!" The biggest thing that has ever been at my door on Halloween, that's for sure. Winner! (And his proud Dad seemed to be more thrilled at winning my See's Candy basket than the kid did.)

Best Family - The Flintstones. They weren't the only ones wearing Flintstones outfits this year (Is this a thing again?) but they were the cutest. Dad as Fred, Mom as Wilma, son as Bam Bam and daughter as Pebbles. All done in full Stone Age regalia. They were adorable. Winner!

Happy Halloween one and all! P.S. Star Wars is dead.

Fabulous!

I turned off all the outside lights at 9pm and saved myself one big Hershey's With Almonds chocolate bar, and with a glass of red wine I am watching the Paul Lynde Halloween Special from 1976 on YouTube. It's horrible, but it's good! :D
