    Re: Has anyone else rocked Splash Mountain solo before? (pic inside)

    The oldest and I have rocked the log solo... on several trips around without getting out.

    But yes, it was her favorite. She rode it 2 or 3 times in a row that morning. (I was wet enough, so I stopped after one trip.)
    I'm hoping she inherits my love-for-thrill-rides genes and not my husband's I'm-gonna-puke genes!

    Love it!

    I did but they got mad at me for putting my feet up just like you did here! The CM that sits just out of sight at the start of the last lift hill leaned out and told me to take my feet off the seat.

    I attempted to make the photo look as though everyone else had fallen out but that was a miserable failure.

    I took this on 9/23/13.

    I think moregumboplease and I had the same general idea...




    I look about 40 lbs fatter than I really am here but oh well, haha! For reference, here's what I usually look like.

    Hahaha, loving all of the pix and stories! Keep them coming!

    B2D, how did you get to sit in the front? They usually have you sit in the middle to keep the log balanced.

    Regarding the feet thing, one time they got on the PA and told my wife to keep her feet down, so with that in mind I waited until right before I dropped to put them up.

    They told me straight up I could sit in the front, but that I would risk getting pretty wet as the log would nose into the drops. I did it anyways didn't get as wet as I got on GRR in DCA later that night.

    Technically you can't get a log by yourself until after the baby is born.

    Re: Has anyone else rocked Splash Mountain solo before? (pic inside)

    I did in the Summer of 2010. For some reason, I managed to find the perfect time right at the end of August, and the beginning of September.

    Though I went around 10-11am in the morning, after a small workout/walk-a-bout on Tom Sawyer Island.

    There were so few people, that I was able to get a whole log to myself. Having one all to myself, I was reminded of the Disney Channel special, "Ernest Goes to Splash Mountain." Back in those days, you could lean back, before all the upright seats.

    I always remembered one scene where Ernest is laying back, relaxing, and goes (as he makes his way to the top): "Wish I'd brought a book."

    I so wanted to mimic that, but couldn't. Though when I see myself as the only occupant, I was reminded of the scene in Cartmanland, where Cartman has his own amusement park, and is just so happy to be the only person on the ride: "Wow, look at how much fun I had!"
    The list of Disney people I've encountered in my life: John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Lee Unkrich, Darla K Anderson, Eric Goldberg, Don Hahn, Peter Schneider, Burney Mattinson, John Musker, Ron Clements, Nik Ranieri, John Kahrs, Jeff Turley, Patrick Osbourne, Dave Bossert, Roy P Disney.

    People I would love to meet in person: Glen Keane, Andreas Deja.
