Pfffft! breakdown shmeakdown. I got your backstage pictures RIGHT HERE!!
Here's me and Tigerlily the day before Disneylands actual 50th when Splash broke down.
And here's some backstage for those inquiring minds.
We've been evac'd off Splash, POTC and Alice.
I think one of the reasons they don't want you taking pics is because guests aren't supposed to be backstage and they want you out of there ASAP. So that means "Be attentive and follow directions, NOW!" Two things you're not likely to do very well if you're dinkin' around takin' pics (like me).
And yes, I did happen to slow down the evac a little while posing for that pic with Brer Rabbit, but hey, how often does something like THAT happen?
