Nice read! πŸ‘πŸ»

Tagged in: Disney History  
I love ToT! πŸ’– Such a fun read and neat to see the opening ceremony with the fireworks and lightening effects!  I just love the feel of Old Hollywood. ✨😍Haven't been on any other versions, but would love to do so. I'm definitely hopeful that the Guardians of the Galaxy change is just a rumor--I honestly don't think there's much truth to that idea since ToT is such a cornerstone for DCA and the Old  Hollywood theme is classic CA, and the ride is beloved and iconic in the park ...  I just feel like it would be like taking the Matterhorn and making it into a Star Wars or Lone Ranger ride...doesn't make any sense to me πŸ˜‚ but I do suppose anything is possible?  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  627.0 #337 8:35AM
I'm thrilled you enjoyed it! I agree, the old glamorous feeling in the Hollywood area is lovely. I so hope you're right about the rumor. πŸ˜” makes me sad! Ha! I never thought of it like that, Lone Ranger mountain is just...wrong!  - Duchess_SMK  6494.7 #19 10:53AM
Hi! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ. I've always enjoyed that very haunting music, while waiting in queue. It's just works to make it feel creepier. I also like, in this instance, how the palm trees are not manicured and look as if they've been abandoned. What a fabulous opening with Mrs Serling! Great special effects with the fireworks! For years I wanted nothing to do with this attraction, thank goodness Mr. talked us Churros into it- it's now a family favorite. I've never been to any other DL resort. As for the change, I feel like it's a Β s t r e t c h. I love Guardians of the Galaxy, but I just have to wonder how the Imagineers are going to retheme it and make it feel natural?? Thanks again for your post!😘 - misschurro...  7264.6 #14 9:02AM
Hi! Me too! I get all excited in line, especially since I hardly ever get to enjoy it! I'm glad Mr churro talked you into it too! I still remember seeing the pic from your first time. πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ» I agree a total stretch! It doesn't seem possible to me to fit! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment! Always appreciated!  - Duchess_SMK  6494.7 #19 9:06PM
They released saying that the rumor is true..I HATE to see this change! I love it how it is now! - megtywit  0.0 #0 9:51AM
i wish there was a way to protest the change . Seriously it's perfect the way it is . It's also my favorite ride in California adventure .  - TigerLily1  10.2 #11221 10:20AM

Those are soooo good!! We actually got one "on the house" cuz my mom's steak was too pink even after a remake was done!

Hi. It's been years since I ate at the blue bayou. Iam thinking of taking my friend there for lunch in September. I remember it being expensive.  Do you get enough food for your money?  I don't want to be hungry afterwards. And also is it possible to ask for a table by the water when making reservations. Thank you - Snowbelle15  2.5 #58800 5:15AM
A lunch for two and specialty drink was $88.53 before AP discount... We took food home with us.. So yes plenty of food ... You cannot order Γ€ la cart it's a meal or a kids meal or nothing...I wanted soup and salad had to settle for soup... It more of a upscale location now.. Get there early to your reservation and asked for a waterslide table.. Those only go to Guest with reservations...  - Fantasmicfan1  3665.4 #43 11:40AM

Great job as always SMK!

Tagged in: Disney History  
This ride is nothing less than perfection! Although, I will admit I really miss Paul Frees' dialogue when you go through the cove that takes you from the past to the present. I miss it every time..."No fear have ye of evil curses says you, Ayyyyeee....   properly warned ye be says I...   who knows when that evil curse will strike the greedy beholders of this bewitched treasure!"(Old ghost's voice)   "Perhaps he knows too much...   he's seen the cur-sed treasure...   he knows where it be hiding? Now proceed at your own risk...  ye may not survive to pass this way again!"I swear, I hear it in my head every time we sail through that cove and I would love for it to return someday, even just temporarily!☺️ - Nala  382.4 #605 9:24AM
