Dispatch from DisneyWorld

By Deane Barker on December 19, 2007

Just a quick note to everyone that I’m in DisneyWorld this week. I was hoping to be able to post something from here, but Internet access is sadly expensive from the room, and every time I go near the laptop, I get the Evil Eye from my wife.

I’ll be back in action after the holidays.

One quick story —

We were at the Animal Kingdom today, and my son was sad to find out that the Expedition Everest roller coaster was closed due to “technical difficulties.” The truth, however, was a little more sinister.

(Interesting note: right about the time this would have happened, I remember several stern-sounding announcements over the PA that went “would [name] or [name] from Navarre, Florida (I specifically remember the city) please pick up a courtesy phone and dial [number].” It’s sad to know now why they needed to find these people.)
