You are probably familiar with the popular parlor game, Kill Boff Marry, where given the choice between three people, you must decide which you’d murder, sleep with and spend the rest of your life with.
Estelle from This Happy Place Blog and I decided to transform the game into a WDW-themed version called Kill Refurb Marry. Our little game grew in popularity, and a few months ago, we decided to add a little Blog Hop action to the game so we can all link up!
This is the eleventh Kill Refurb Marry Blog Hop! I hope lots of Disney bloggers will join in the fun. You can check out their links on this month’s the Kill Refurb Marry homepage. This month–just in time for the most disgusting levels of summer heat–we’re sounding off on Air-Conditioned Attractions.
I’ve decided to put my own spin on this one … because I HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE the heat. And I need a cool, quiet place to close my eyes from time to time. With that in mind, I automatically disqualified anything with an exterior queue as well as anything that lasts less than 15 minutes.
Kill:The Great Movie Ride
I’ve already killed this thing. Actually, I killed it in the very first Kill Refurb Marry, back when it was just Estelle and I. Cray, right? Though 18 months have past since I last weighed in, my reasoning remains much the same: it’s, simply, terrible. The plot stinks. The audioanimatronics stink. The whole concept stinks. And most importantly for our purposes, it’s nap-credentials stink. So let’s use that massive show building for something better.
Refurb: Carousel of Progress
Oh, how I love this classic attraction. It has great music. It’s hilarious. And it has comfortable seating, excellent air conditioning and a 20-minute run time. But because it’s classic and I truly do love it, I wish they’d fix the audioanimatronics–especially poor, balding Rover and sadly, limp-wristed Father. And, while we’re closed for refurb, maybe they can put in new seats, replace the carpet, paint the interior walls … aaaaaaaaaaaaaand update that final scene so it’s less ridiculous.
Marry: American Adventure
I don’t love the American Adventure. It’s long and sort of boring. But the music is lovely and soothing, the chairs are comfortable and it’s the perfect length for a nice, rejuvenating nap. Before you know it, 30 minutes will have passed, and you’ll be all cooled down and ready to take on the second half of the World Showcase. Perfect!
