It is actually a test device for the new wifi feature that can broadcast the songs in the park to ÿour ear buds
It extends and is used for dancing in case the boat stops. Only the funnest of guests are allowed to ride in the extend-a-pole boat. - Linzee 1396.6 #134 6-24-13 8:32PMLike(9)Reply
If the attraction gets stuck, there's a secret compartment on that boat that contains a tether ball. That way your not bored while waiting for the CM to get ya. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM 1002.5 #199 6-24-13 9:07PMLike(4)Reply

Thanks a million for posting! My husband had the honor of marching down Main Street in high school. We're both former band nerds so watching this gives us major pride! U have to do it to know how much hard work and dedication it takes to perform that well as a team. Thanks again! - TheBearandtheBow 72.4 #4230 6-24-13 3:09PMLike(1)Reply
Thanks #1!!! That was awesome!! My favorite part was the drummers (the one guy with the drum and two cymbals looks like a Mickey head 😁😜) and when Simba and Scar were fighting!!! I got to see them perform one song on the red carpet!! I hope to see all these others live!!! I for sure want to see the MJ tribute!!! Maybe you can teach Dave how to use a try pod like you did!!!! 😉😂😂😂😂 - caramiapoohluvsbb8 4485.5 #33 6-24-13 3:11PMLikeReply

Gah, unfortunately I have to cancel this RAK as I can no longer go to the parks on the 24th. I will be redoing this RAK as a mail RAK, which gives more people the opportunity to enter! Keep your eyes out for that, and sorry for the inconvenience! - ladylikesdisney 945.0 #206 2-20-13 11:52AMLikeReply
I loved your video..it inspired me to look a little more closely while visiting the park..perspective. I often rush about and don't really appreciate all the little things that make the park so special.
Thanks. Although many pictures show very little people in them, don't be afraid to have people in photos. Years from now, styles and clothing in the photos will show history. - RadioMaverick 1276.9 #146 1-13-13 11:04AMLike(3)Reply
I'll be there cheering on my daughter with some of her MW friends. Maybe we can all stand together. I'm making signs.
This is awesome! Farther along the course is nice because it's the last miles that really get hard! I'll be running it next weekend. Once you decide where you'll be, let us all know so that we can look for you! Ill be dressed as Alice 😃 - LilSterner 5828.4 #24 1-12-13 2:18PMLike(3)Reply

Thank you for all you do! Now, more than ever, kids need good instructors and strong role models. And those DL trips don't pay for themselves, lol. It's hard to go back, I'm sure, but look forward to the next trip and know that with each passing day, you ARE providing children with stability and making a difference in our crazy, mixed up world :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar 641.5 #335 1-6-13 5:46PMLike(5)Reply
It feels like it's been months since the last time I was in my classroom, but it's only been two weeks. That must mean I've had a restful Winter Break. Here's to an easy transition back into doing what we love, and just think! Only two weeks of work until our next (mini) break (MLK, Jr. Day). That'll be my next chance to escape to the parks because my brothers will have Mom Duty then! :) - susieQzee 555.8 #393 1-6-13 9:51PMLikeReply
My daughter and I watched from hungry bear once and you can see everyone getting into position wearing black cloaks. We also saw the price carrying the mermaid down the path to the boat.
This is a fun place to stand during the show. We watched the orangutans float waiting in the dark and sitting quietly. Suddenly they started their dancing in the dark so that when their drum music started and the lights came on, they are in full dance already. I love that behind-the-scenes stuff!!! - DisneyMom13 331.1 #779 1-6-13 11:14AMLike(1)Reply

Please add my daughter ladylikesdisney. Our favorite part is when the pirate yells, "We wants the red head!" My daughter is a red head and as a child she thought they wanted her.
The time for entries has now ended! I'll be picking a name within the next 24 hours (probably pulling a name out of a hat or something along those lines.) Goodluck to all of you that entered. 😃 - PiecesOf8 608.4 #356 1-8-13 12:02AMLike(2)Reply

I agree..when my daughter left for so cal to go to college, I was worried. Through MW, she has met some life long friends and is never alone inside the park. I can't think of a better place for my 21 year old to hang out. When I visit, More...

I appreciate this. It can be so hard to break through established social circles. I wish more people had their arms out-stretched with an attitude of 'theres always room for another'.

Paradise Garden Grille in DCA. The longest line I've ever seen there is two people and I think the food is a freshing change from normal park food. Not to mention the lovely eating area that is NEVER crowded and I love the live music they play. It's truly a great place to catch your breath and relax at. - Sarafina 491.7 #462 12-17-12 11:45AMLike(4)Reply
A wonderful resting spot that is quiet is behind Donald's boat under the waterfall in ToonTown-also Pooh's Backyard behind the ride. - missyandpaul 285.8 #1063 12-18-12 3:04AMLikeReply
I think Big Thunder Ranch (home of the Jingle Jangle Jamboree) is an awesome place to hang out especially when it is host to a holiday theme event. Never too crowded, especially early in the day, and always fun things to experience. - leafs17 158.4 #2657 12-18-12 8:24AMLikeReply
