Spaceship Earth | Epcot Center by Mike Buchawiecki Via Flickr: It’s been a while since I posted a park pic. I took this last night - July 21 - at Epcot Center. We realized we hadn’t been to any of the parks since late May. I’m not sure if Avatar is the culprit, but I haven’t seen Epcot so un-crowded in ages. It was great!!
James and Sirius, upon entering the park, make a beeline to secure fast passes for their favorite rides (the ones like Matterhorn, Indiana Jones, Space Mountain, etc.)
At this point, Remus is really regretting not investing in a pair of those child-leashes that a good third of the parents at the theme park are sporting.
Peter tries running after Sirius and James, but gives up (not being fast enough) and hangs back alongside Remus, getting distracted by the array of gift/candy shops lining Main Street USA
Remus has to get a picture of Sleeping Beauty’s castle upon entering. He just has to.
James and Sirius are really smug when they get to cut in front of everyone with their fast passes. Remus just gives apologetic looks, and Peter has to shovel down the pretzel he bought before they get on the ride.
Ok, so considering the average temperature for Scotland during the summer time is around fifty seven degrees, and for southern California (L.A.) it’s around eighty one- they’re dying.
James and Sirius are wearing the bare minimum, and Remus has to rent a locker to stuff his sweater into
Sirius is rocking a man bun
James buys a Wizard Mickey hat and absolutely refuses to take it off
Peter may or may not be on his fifth churro by the time lunch rolls around
Remus really enjoys the small corners and alleys of the park where the crowd thins
Peter gets a coonskin hat from frontierland
Lots of shameless flirting with princesses coming from Sirius that result in autographs with the occasional phone number attached.
James seeing the Ariel and automatically missing Lily
Peter getting sick on the teacups ride after James decides to spin theirs as fast as he fucking can.
Lots of “JAMES NO!”
Sirius and James, after hearing about the two hundred feral cats that prowl the park at night, decide to go on a hunt for them
They legit smuggle cat nip inside the park and search the bushes for cats
Remus is so done with everyone’s shit
He just wants to have a normal visit at Disneyland is that so hard to ask?
Peter really wants to watch the parades, but Remus sees this as an opportune time to beat the crowds (now gathered along the street) to the rides
Remus is honestly ride or die. He doesn’t fuck with these slow ass tourists who have no idea where they’re going. He knows where to go and everyone is getting in his way.
Sirius getting picked on by characters (i.e. Chip ‘n Dale tugging on his man bun and snickering at it)
James in a flexing contest with Gaston
Remus only taking pictures the Mickey and Friends characters
And he’s all embarrassed to walk up to them at first
James taking the mic from the tour guide on Jungle Cruise because he thinks his jokes are lame, so he starts dishing out puns like its nothing and does a mic drop
Peter screaming a little too shrilly when the Yeti pops out on the Matterhorn
Sirius and James trying to find the entrance to the secret basketball court on the matterhorn
Also using alohomora to get into restricted areas of the park
Sirius singing Small World on repeat
James trying to harmonize
Remus really likes walking through Sleeping Beauty’s Castle (James and Sirius are hardly impressed)
But his favorite ride is the Disneyland Rail Road
Peter’s favorite ride is Star Tours and he convinces the others to ride it at least four times throughout the day.
James’ favorite ride is Indiana Jones. When he sees the snake statues in the ride, he mutters “Snivellus?”
Sirius prefers Pirates of the Caribbean
Remus getting really insecure because he notices little kids looking at the scars on his face with mild confusion- some are even scared
But then Peter Pan comes over and he does his thing. He tells Remus (making a big show of it so that others can hear) that he must’ve put up a good fight against the “pirate” that did that, and comments on how brave he is
Remus is just smiling the entire time and plays along with Peter Pan, and the kids gathered around are awestruck
Sirius and James posing for the camera on Splash Mountain
Having to restrain Sirius and James from jumping into the Rivers of America to get to the island
In 1991, a group of queer friends decided to organize an unofficial “gay and lesbian day” at Walt Disney World, a day for a small gathering of the local LGBTQ community to come and visit the theme park together.
They picked a Saturday in June because it was one of the slowest days of the year, one current GaysDays official said.
Now, more than 20 years later, the event has ballooned into a multi-day, massive Pride-month celebration with nearly 200,000 attendees and multiple locations.
Organizers say it’s only going to keep getting bigger. Read more (6/5/17)
Concept: you go to Disneyland and there are no time constraints. You get to meet all your favorite characters. You get to ride every ride. You get to explore the entirety of the park, and see everything in every shop.
