Re how I want to meet my maker at WDW: without warning, the Yeti goes into "A" mode and swats me right out of the train.

Just wanted to put another plug in for the Studios Central Radio (SCR) app for the IPhone! Woot! Really enjoy listening to the Studios music and loops during the day.

I was so sure that Wonka Bars would be in there somewhere...

While riding Spaceship Earth, one of the "legs" suffers instantaneous, catastrophic, metal fatigue and snaps. The "ball", gaining momentum, proceeds to roll off merrily into central Florida, crushing everything in its path.

That, or I die of a Saccharine overdose on "It's a Small World". You pick.

For the "What's next" question, the biggest park project that Disney has underway wasn't mentioned - Shanghai Disney. That's a whole brand new park that should open in only 3 or 4 years.

A terrible Doom Buggy accident that leaves me the 1000th grim grinning ghost.

For me, if I have to go at WDW, then I want it to be during a malfunction on the Tower of Tower where it slingshots us out of the top of the hotel then falls. Right before the drop, I want to say something prophetic to the person next to me like, "I think you'll like this, I heard the Imagineers made some changes." or "Did you hear Disney is making some cost-cutting changes to their rides?" Once shot out of the top of the hotel, I want to say, "Hey look Wendy, I can see Matt's house from here."

If I was gonna bite it in the world, I would want one of the Dumbos to break off while I was riding so that I could actually fly for a short while before crashing in to the castle. The Headline could read "I've seen an elephant fly but have never seen an elephant land"

Just a quick note on wifi - there is free wifi lounge in Inoventions. The IBM area has free wifi and chairs to sit at.
Haunting the Tower
Authored by: TQM on Monday, April 04 2011 @ 07:31 PM CDT
I want to go while riding Tower of Terror. Just let me plunge to my death whilst having the time of my life. Plus, then I could haunt the Tower and be part of the spookiness in the 5th dimension.
No One?

Len....seriously? You can't believe anyone wouldn't want the Almost Hight Speed Rail? Really? Politicians generally don't make a lot of smart decisions...but this was one. And Matt...you have the wrong character from Superman....Rick Scott is not Lex Luthor.
Disney deaths always involve falling?
Authored by: ErwinM on Monday, April 11 2011 @ 11:23 AM CDT
At least, only if you're a villain. The problem with something going horribly wrong and having a nice in-park death is that most of the cases would shut down the ride temporarily (or permanently), and that wouldn't be cool for other guests. So here we go.

1) In over 50 years on both coasts, nobody's taken up Shrunken Ned on his offer. The Jungle Cruise could use some new material anyhow, so I'd be willing to donate some brain cells toward it.

2) Get stuck in the Carousel of Progress's last scene and starve to death. You'd never get food delivered there..."That same address calls for a pizza every 5 1/2 minutes! Stop taking their calls! You'll know who they are, they're calling from a car phone!"

3) Put the Sky Buckets back up long enough for someone to demonstrate that using a little finger-tight deadbolt to hold the door closed was a REALLY BAD idea. (And there's the falling death for good measure.)

4) The Pharoah's Curse in the Great Movie Ride is just a special effect, right? ...Right???

5) Die while taking a nap in Sounds Dangerous. If it takes someone dying in that theater to shut it down, then I'd take one for the human race. (After making sure the life insurance is paid up.)
