Wordless Wednesday

I couldn't think of too many words for the Disney  theme this week that started with the letter "U" ( which was the theme) but then I remembered this picture from 2012.  It was the afternoon after the Princess Half Marathon and our family ventured to Magic Kingdom. It had rained earlier that morning and there were chances of showers later on in the day. I decided to take an Umbrella into the park with us just in case.

For some reason my sister and I thought it would be clever to put our umbrella up as we went down the final "Splash" on Splash Mountain!   Afterall, we never actually had an umbrella on Splash mountain before.....lol  ( Can you see it in the picture on the right?)  Ok, so anyway looking back I know that was probably a dangerous thing to do and I'm surprised a cast member didn't say anything to us as we got off.

Good thing this was a freebie umbrella because the force of the wind on the ride bent the frame and we couldn't use it again.   We were glad it never did end up raining the rest of the day!

What's your favorite "U" word memory from Disney?
Have you ever done anything that could be considered dangerous on a ride?

  4. Ha, first time I have heard of an umbrella used. Looks like it didn't survive the fall as well as you did :)

    1. Funny you should mention that. I was just thinking "under the sea" this morning as another one I could have used! I'm sure someone used that. I will have to check the other bloggers who participated in Wordless Wednesday and find out!

  6. That is a hoot! I hate to get wet on rides so I am thinking that, in theory, this would have worked!

  8. How about unicorn? Are there any unicorns on the carousel in the Magic Kingdom, or are they all horses?

    1. Oh Yes! Unicorns would have been a good one! I don't really know if there are any on the carousel!

    2. Hmm...according to this, all the carousel animals are horses (and evidently if they weren't, that would make them merry-go-rounds). HOWEVER, one of the horses on the DL carousel is named Unice. :)
