    Wow .. I am blown away by the video today because it was my Mom’s favorite ride at Disney World and we had to go on it each time we went, much to my dismay. It also happens to be the 1 year anniversary of her passing today. Thank you for bringing back fond memories. Worse song to ever get stuck in my head … The Hustle! Few years back we stayed at the Pop Century and for the next couple of months I went around humming it! As always, can’t wait for the next episode! Congrats Steve!

    Oh what a super swell ride!!! I felt like I was in the boat with you!!! I’m so lonesome for the Magic Kingdom. Got to get back there soon. Humm a song that got stuck in my head: Mamma Mia and a couple more of those ABBA songs!! All day long for about 2 weeks, after seeing the show!! ha ha
    Thanks for another great escape. Excellent way to end my busy day 🙂

    It is very difficult to decide. I would have to say the worst song that ever got stuck in my head was the main music theme in the old NES game Back to the Future. Check out a video of that game and listen to the music in the walking stages and you may have to agree in a way.

    Off the subject, Small World in Disneyland, CA is better in my opinion. Did you know that ride was originally created by WED Enterprises at the 1964 New York World’s Fair’s? Keep up the good work.

    Hey Rick,

    Love the video, love the ride. I wish I could go to either Disney World or Disneyland and destress.

    Worst song to get stuck in my head–I know there are some of those songs out there but I can’t think of one right now. But, I love musicals–Les Miserables, Phantom Of The Opera, Oklahoma, The Music Man, the list goes on and on. Once I start watching these movies I can’t get the songs out of my head and I want to watch them over and over.

    See you next week.


    P.S. Rick I am still waiting for a plush Mater.

    what a wonderful show. There never been a song that I can remember ever getting stuck in my head. My family can never understand that I can go through Small World an not have the song stick. Maybe that’s because when I was in Grade school we did it as part of a concert. so maybe that’s why song don’t stick in my head. I love you shows an can’t wait for the next one. Great work see you here next week.

    Hey Rick,
    I love “its a small world”. I like having a Disney song stuck in my head. The worst song to get stuck in my head is Seasons of Love. As I watch this, I got inundated with memories from 2011. We have 133 days left. I would love to meet you in the parks. See you next week.

    Rick,I loved this episode.I love the classic rides a lot.I look forward to seeing you in the snow next episode.It should be a lot of fun.Were you able to find any sushi up there?If not I am sure you were craving it by the time you got back home,lol.The worst song I ever had stuck in my head was Tiny Tim singing Tiptoe through the Tulips.My mom made me listen to it,then I couldn’t get it out of my head,lol.Anyways,thanks for another amazing episode.I look forward to every one of them.Have an awesome week.

    The new camera is great. Such details. Now you have to re-shoot all the rides.
    Small World never gets old for me. I saw it first at the World’s Fair, and I’m still not tired of it. I think I have become immune to the song too.
    Worst dong stuck in my head? Well, I’d have to go with the most recent culprit, Gangham Style.
    I have to catch up with the videos, again, and see what I’ve missed.


  9. Jeanne Cundiff says:

    Oh wow! Thank you so much for a wonderful Disney fix today! I love this ride; the Polynesian part of it is my favorite. To answer the question, I had a children’s preschool song of Father Abraham stuck in my head for about 2 weeks. I woke up singing it! I am a Christian but that was rather miserable. Oh boy, it might be stuck again! I am glad you had such a great time on your vacation. I don’t want to brag, but we leave in 39 days for WDW! It is cold and snowing here in Ohio and I am so ready to get warm and experience that Disney Magic! Looking forward the the Flower and Garden Festival, we have never seen it before. We are hoping to get a glimpse of You doing your magic!!
    Have a great week,

    CLASSIC RIDE! Thanks Rick, we ride Its a Small World every trip to WDW! Great camera, very sharp images, well done! Love the polynesian part too, the drums are awesome! Worst song is Fancy by Reba, I’ll have a wreck trying to change the channel so fast! Thanks again my friend, keep that young beardless smile on!


  12. Penny Serrato says:

    Here’s a new one…Thanks for getting the song stuck in my head to replace the worst song that was already stuck in my head, the theme song from Green Acres. The new camera is really nice, ready to see how it does on a ride with low light. Can’t wait for next week. TFS
