2 Disney Visitors Injured Getting off and on Rides at Magic Kingdom

Admin

The most interesting part of this article for me is the last line, “The parks report the incidents as part of a deal they made to avoid state inspections.” Not sure that’s a good thing.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

“A 69-year-old man fell and fractured his hip while climbing off the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel at the Magic Kingdom Jan. 30, the report said.

I don’t think it will make any difference at all. None.

Disney World Is Using Pricing to Spread out Its Crowds

I’d probably be happy to pay more for less crowds. Some of the best times we’ve had were during the Early Morning Magic with limited admission to Magic Kingdom. I’m fairly certain they won’t find the sweet spot though.

From Attractions Magazine:

“Looking at those comparisons, we come to this: A new Star Wars-themed land that is nearly as large as Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley and Pandora – The World of Avatar put together!”

Even with the size of the land itself, I still want to ride the attractions without four hours in line for each one.

Just being in the land isn’t enough for us. Enjoy those benches!

From Twitter:

“Hell yeah two grown men just got into a fight at Epcot directly in front of dozens of kids waiting to meet sombrero donald duck. that’s the magic of disney baby”
