More Fun & Games & Things To Do Around WDW

 

So here are some more fun things to do in The World (not The World from .hack, but WDW). With all that stuff I mentioned before, these end up being afterthoughts. But if you go as much as I do…

Miniature Golf

When Disney realized people were leaving WDW to play mini golf (aka: Putt Putt; aka: Goofy Golf – no relation to the character), they got nervous that they were losing guests to outside interests. They got all pissed off that outside companies were getting the money. In response, Disney created: Continue reading “WDW for the Single Guy: an experiment, Part 27 (Bonus Features)”

The I, Omnibus Fast Food Wifi Power Rankings, June, 2018 edition

WiFi logo

Let’s face it, folks today always want to be connected to the ‘net. Whether it’s for work, social media, gaming, school, or all of the above, no one can spend precious time away from it. But you can’t skip meals either. Perhaps you have the common decency to realize that you shouldn’t eat on your desk (or on the toilet seat of the bathroom), and want to get a quick bite to eat. That’s where marketing comes in. Besides promoting their new menu item and/or combo meal, eateries now promote the fact that they offer free wi-fi in their building. And being able to check emails during lunch really does make a difference in the numbers of patrons entering your establishment Continue reading “The I, Omnibus Fast Food Wifi Power Rankings, June, 2018 edition”

The Water Parks

Note: Rating water rides is tough because they are all very similar. Please take rating with a grain of salt unless it is in the “A” – “A+” range.

TYPHOON LAGOON

In 1989, while Eisner was creating MGM Studios and Pleasure Island, he was also installing this crazy water park right across the street where Downtown Disney would be. River Country (we’ll talk about that in the extinct attractions section) was so popular that the Imagineers couldn’t wait to throw in another aquatic adventure at WDW. Here’s the story: Continue reading “WDW for the Single Guy: an experiment, Part 24 (The Water Parks)”

Nightlife, Part II

West Side

In 1996, Eisner started to worry that Universal’s answer to Pleasure Island, (Citywalk, a poor man’s PI) would hurt Disney’s business. Nothing was themed to Universal’s Citywalk – it was more of a strip mall with nightclubs. So Eisner responded to that with The West Side, which he shoved next to Pleasure Island – then renamed the entire area Downtown Disney. This area not only houses a broad range of stores and restaurants, but an interactive “indoor theme park” called DisneyQuest and Cirque Du Soleil: La Nouba. Here are some of the great things.
