Kill, Refurb, Marry: Walt Disney World Transportation

Leave a comment

My friends at the wonderful This Happy Place Blog and Mouse On The Mind are hosting another round of Kill, Refurb, Marry, so I thought I’d play.

Kill
Sure, they’re charming with their cute awnings and fringe. But those damned surry bicycles are a hazard! They are super hard to steer, and take way too much energy to pedal. This makes for a serious pedestrian hazard on the narrow sidewalks of Port Orleans Riverside. Heck, I’ve almost been run over on the Boardwalk by one of these nutty things. Kill ’em.

Refurb
Here I have to go with the Monorail. Step on to a hot, crowded monorail in WDW in August and you know what it smells like? Urine. It’s worse than the Boston Orange line. To see what a monorail SHOULD be, check out pics online of the Tokyo Disney monorail. It’s amazing.

This one was easy, though I’m not sure if it counts. Last month my family booked a Fireworks Cruise on the Seven Seas Lagoon. We were picked up by a pontoon boat at the Contemporary, and rode around with our super fun captain for a half-hour before stopping right across from Main Street to watch Wishes. It was a perfectly magical night. My pictures suck. (Lost my camera and had to use the iPhone.). Trust me, it was very cool. Wish we could do it every trip.
