Add Some More Thrill And Understanding

It was always a rumor about another land in Disney World.  Villain Mountain I believe was the rumored name.  I have been going to Disney World since I was a baby.  I enjoy going on vacation there.  I have discussed with many other Disney lovers that Disney does need to add a little bit more flair to the parks.

I also see that Disney is a bit more strict with their handicapped policies.  From my understanding a handicapped person needs to go to Town Hall in Magic Kingdom to get a pass from them in order to use the handicapped entrances in the Magic Kingdom.  I know wheelchair people that have problems getting Disney to do anything because they don’t have necessary info upon going to the Guest Relations at the parks.  I would have thought that they wouldn’t give an issue to people that have shoulder braces, casts, wheelchairs, or other necessary needs.  During peak times this is pretty much thrown out the window from what I have witnessed.  They make everyone wait the same during certain times.

Disney is a great place, but they do need to think about some change.  Change is good.  Even if the executives don’t think they are… They might be.

Disney Unsafe? Not In My Eyes!

Someone I know was talking to me the other day about vacationing.  We were discussing Disney World.  He asked me about how safe Disney World really is because he had read a lot of things, and didn’t want to make the kids worry.  This was resulting from the amount of accidents that have occured over the past year or two.  I explained to him that every park has situations, and then there is also the case of ruthless people that try to get something for nothing, or by using their problems to get forward in life.

Disney has had their fair share of mishaps, but as far as I read they don’t even seem to be Disney’s fault majority of the time.  Not just in Disney, but people try to sue for their own foolishness on a normal basis.Disney is by far one of the safest parks that I will ever take my family to.  When there is an emergency Disney has their own force of security, medical, and fire personell.  I also know that they work with the area sherrif, police, and other emergency services.  If there was a bad enough situation I am sure that they have a way to get medical air evacuation too.

How do you feel about Disney and the safety measures that you have seen?

Splash Mountain Reopens

Splash Mountain has reopened after @ 1 month refurbishment.  During this refurbishment the flume ride boats were fitted with a “Safety Lap Bar.”  Safety has been a question for some time, but got looked at with wider eyes after a death in 2000.  Most of the reason that the issue was never acted on was in concern that the lap bars would slow down the efficiency of loading, and unloading.

I myself enjoy Splash Mountain the way it was, but if Disney feels that there is a safety issue, then I can’t really blame them for putting them in because someone somewhere would try to sue Disney if they got injured because of their own stupidity.  Think about it.  The lap bars are meant to keep you in place until the ride is over.  Obviously people have tried to get out of the boats before the ride is over otherwise why would Disney think about doing this?
