Anyone who knows us at Imaginerding is well aware that we consider Splash Mountain to be the ultimate Disney ride. Although Andy’s favorite ride is Spaceship Earth and mine is the Haunted Mansion, we both agree that Splash Mountain offers a great story, wonderful songs, a fun (although wet) ride and a lot of details. Other rides may have better lineages (Haunted Mansion and Pirates) but Splash is an all around “really-good” ride*.
On one of our research trips, we were able to ride Splash Mountain twice without any wait. We took as many pictures as we could in the queue and the daylight areas of the ride for future posts.
Just for you, though, we broke our rule and took a flash picture inside the ride–just this once. We saw this book on our first ride and didn’t have our cameras out. Andy nailed a great shot on the second go around.
We present to you another book update: How to Catch a Rabbit by Brer Wolf.
Since I wasn’t able to snag a review copy of this title or step out of the log, I can’t do an official book review. What I can tell you is that I would not recommend this book. After spending nearly 10 minutes following the author’s escapades throughout the attraction, I can safely conclude that Mr. Wolf is a hack and that the book did not help Br’er Fox secure any rabbits while on the ride. Near the end, Br’er Fox did catch the rabbit, but ended up throwing him into the briar patch after some quick talking by said rabbit.
If you can get your hands on a copy of this rare item, it is worth it from a collector’s standpoint. Otherwise, I would leave this title in the swamp.
Once again, another great reason why you need to slow down, look around and enjoy the details while you are in the parks.
As the famous architect Ludwig Mies van der Mouse once said, “Walt is in the detail.”
