Everyone sing-along

I'd prefer one of the "wrath of khan" ear worms to that.

We made our daughter take the ride when we were there two years ago. Mostly so she could scar her kids in 20 or 30 years.

I actually like riding that ride multiple times after dark. Gives it a nice creepy vibe to it; a classic.

We went to WDW in 1971 when it first opened. My mom got seasick on the Small World ride and had to puke in her purse.

How about a rousing rendition of go fark yourself sung in the style of the Hashers?

From the article: " "Everybody in the world knows the song," said Duncan Wardle, a Disney vice president who is heading the celebration. "It has a special place in people's hearts."

This is true. ( I really don't like that particular song...)

I skimmed that line in the article and immediately went cold. At this point I have to assume my soul is black, or my childhood was an empty void; I remember liking "Disney stuff" a lot as a kid, but goddamn, I feel absolutely nothing as an adult looking or thinking about Disney stuff now*

/*talking about the iconic characters and stories. I can enjoy some newer films for what they are

No. Just....hell no.

Disney was for decades all white, all tight, and damn well copyright.

No good childhood memories to spoil.
 
2014-03-21 10:28:24 PM  
And you just know at some point the world will stop turning for about a half hour or so while that bloody song keeps playing.

They've been torturing confessions out of al-Qaeda operatives in Gitmo with it for over a decade now.

I'm pretty sure doing this would summon something particularly nasty from the darkest depths of the Underworld.

Bad idea.

When we took our kids to Disney World, that farking song almost drove me crazy.

I was ~10 back in the 70's when my parents put us in the line. 45 minutes in the hot Florida line to get on. When we got to the front, I actually asked the smiling attendant lady how long they made her listen to that every day. It was perhaps the sorriest I had ever felt for another human being up to that point.

I've heard the story from several people.  They'd get stuck, and the song would keep playing.

Thanks soupbone, for giving me a break oh yea in my time of great despair.

Silly subby, no one has fond childhood memories of that song.
 
2014-03-22 07:19:09 AM  
Then after the public performance, everyone would get a bill for royalties owed.

It's a beautiful song and my family will go on that ride ten times at least on every disney vacation. It's very American, like everything else disney. It celebrates humanity by showing how alike we are while celebrating our differences. Like the whole melting pot thing.

>>Richard Sherman, who co-wrote the tune

How has this man escaped prosecution?

Sure, there are things about the human experience the span cultures and geography, but I still maintain that the world is not 'small'.

When you're the best In the game, you do what you do. No farking way Michael Crabtree gets away with writing that shiat.

28 years ago, I took my then 6 year old son on that ride.   The ride broke down while we were inside, but the song continued ---- FOR AN HOUR AND FREAKN' 45 MINUTES!!!!   I  haven't been on it since.

Two years ago, my son took his daughter to Disney World and rode it (it was his first time in 26 years).   He said it was a bit traumatic, but it was worth it for his daughter---once.  He won't be doing it again.
