Splash Down!

At Disney World, we rode Splash Mountain twice, a log ride themed after the little-seen 1946 Disney film Song of the South, a mix of live action and animated stories told by Uncle Remus about Brer Fox, Brer Bear and Brer Rabbit. I asked my daughter to comment on the experience:

"Splash Mountain is almost terrifying," my daughter said. "The big hill is a steep drop, and I am riding Splash Mountain just for [my dad]. In the picture I am feeling my stomach drop. I am thinking in the picture, that was very surprising! I did not know this was coming!"

I'm glad this ride didn;t make her racist, what with all that Uncle Remus propaganda.

Question: Did you crop yourself out of this photo? What are you screaming like a banshee or something. Now you HAVE to post the whole photo for us.

The photo contained all five people on the ride. I cropped Harper out because her reaction was natural and funny. Caryn and I knew the picture was being taken and mugged for the shot.

I will post the whole log ride photo, my friend!

Sounds like you guys had a wonderful time. You've got me wanting to go to DisneyWorld now.
