The ‘Long’ Line and The ‘Other’ Line

dtw dad

I received this Chip Panel article from our friend and long time follower DeAnna. I hope it makes you think next time you see those people bypassing you in line.At Disney World, there are two (2) lines at every ride and exhibit. There’s the LOOOOOONG line, you know……the one that you’re praying is really short before you get there, then you turn the corner and realize it will be at LEAST 45 minutes until you’re boarding a jungle cruise through the “faux” Amazon?Then there’s the … [Read more...]

Oldies But Goodies – The Ride Designed With Us In Mind!!


Sure, there aren't any loops, no 60 mph takeoffs, and no 13 story drops but The Great Movie Ride is still one of my favorites. A lot of Oldies feel the same way for lots of reasons.
