Disneyland Duel: Matterhorn v. Star Tours

Is the Matterhorn too bumpy? Does Star Tours give you motion sickness? We’ll answer these and other questions in our third DISNEYLAND DUEL, where we pit two random attractions against each other. Then I rate them for Location, Queue, Wait Times, Ambiance, Excitement, Enjoyment, and Nostalgia. At the end, we crown a winner!

Today we see who wins between the MATTERHORN and STAR TOURS, two Disneyland classics which are within a stone’s throw of each other. Let’s see who wins in this turbulent Disneyland attraction duel!

Disney World reopening in July! What we know and what we don’t…

Disney just announced some reopening dates for Disney World in Florida. JULY 11TH, Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom would re-open. Then JULY 15TH Hollywood Studios and EPCOT will open, too. Disney Springs is already open, and I suspect the water parks will stay closed longer because crowds are more contained and germs seem easier to spread in that environment.

Obviously, there are a bunch of rules and guidelines we’ll all have to follow. Things like wearing masks, temperature checks, social distancing. Apparently some kind of (as yet to be revealed) park reservation system. Parades, fireworks, character dining are on hold, too, since they want to avoid crowds however possible.

Disney Duel: Splash Mountain v. Incredicoaster

My newest video series, DISNEY DUEL, is where we settle scores between attractions, hotels, foods, and more. I’ll rate two randomly chosen Disney picks and then declare a winner! Then, it’s up to you all to leave comments and let me know if you agree or disagree.

Questions Unknown – Episode 1

Hello everyone! I hope your quarantine is treating you well. I know we’re all looking for ways to waste a little bit of time so I thought it might be fun to do a couple Disney videos. For this idea, I am going to answer questions that I got on Quora and Twitter here via video (instead of just typing it).

But, this time I’ve done something a little bit unique, too! Instead of reading the questions beforehand, I had my wife view the questions and write them down for me. That means I’ll only see them for the first time right here right now I thought that might make this a little bit more suspenseful so I’ve got four questions they are all about Disneyland (not California Adventure). Enjoy the video, and if you want to try and GUESS my answers, the questions and some hints are below the fold (and the answers are at the very end):
