Photo TR: 40 Hours In Orlando


Recommended Posts

Thursday morning, I was at work in beautiful downtown Glendale, when my bosses came in with an emergency. They needed someone to fly to Orlando to assist on a project that was of the utmost importance. The work wasn't difficult, but there was no one to do it. I volunteered, and thus got a completely free trip to Orlando for the weekend.

 

What ensues is the craziness that happened over the 40 hours I was in O-Town, and how I conquered it and became it's master.

Hey Scott. Hey Matt. I waited for like 5 minutes to get this picture for both of you. You better save it, print it out, and frame it.

OMG, open gate photo!!! OMG!!!!

Seriously, the hand is still there. PROOF.

I guess they haven't taken down the giant hand yet. oh well.

After my work had finished, I decided to head over to Epcooter. Hmmm...something's different here.

14.jpg.a0cbd5bcb3eaa9b8b8371d4f804fdf97.jpg

By the way, I rode the slide like 8 times because we had a break. Big fudging loser, I know.

16.jpg.769a93ac5109ad851e3031d9b1fc40f0.jpg

And your ass gets dumped out here. So necessary.

15.jpg.37de16c3302a1ceed47e8d2dc55b8442.jpg

Then you twist through this rock structure, complete with two waterfalls.

13.jpg.21e4acb70a7925fe573dce2418b65c26.jpg

It starts here. You go down the mast.

12.jpg.7b64a850778fe4d38aa6545ed76edc79.jpg

Ok, this is the BEST HOTEL WATERSLIDE EVER!!!

11.jpg.0f1a8293977041f799e9a85c83b38d5c.jpg

My hoopty for the weekend. Holler bitches.

10.jpg.8c41bef95baa934c69a80394e0f10557.jpg

So, this is what I had to get sent out to work on. I won't go into details, other than to say it was beyond simple.

F**K This!

If these were actually alcoholic, I'd be in AA. Mmmmm....

Hour Two: Get some (free) grub. How about Spoodles?

"Hi, I'm Good Tower. My ride story makes sense, my boiler room doesn't look like a cartoon, and I don't have a random hallway separating the elevator doors from the elevator."

3.jpg.40eda8612ceadfe692b9361bf1711a81.jpg

Here's my view. GOOD Tower, Rock N' Roller Coaster, and Boardwalk's Coaster Pool (Not a credit you losers...you know who you are.)

2.jpg.181d8f956f7424970d4fde4f4eaffd74.jpg

Oh, I got a villa. With a kitchenette. Jealous yet? Do you see the complimentary bottle of Palmolive and FREE SPONGE?!!?!

Let's start at hour 1: Arriving at my hotel...Disney's Boardwalk!!

EPCOT Part Dos

Nevermind, this is still WAY MORE TERRIFYING THAN ANYTHING IN THE WORLD.

52.jpg.cf0bb3ddfe9ec351ab41d06332c61d8d.jpg

As Day One winds to a close, I leave you with the most frightening image imaginable.

51.jpg.be1eee58bf2ec7213d81678e2b78f50a.jpg

When this hits B, and the doors open, you walk into the elevator. Unlike other versions, where the doors open, you walk through a hallway, and then get onto the elevator. Just saying.

I got some time to kill, why not head over to MGM for an hour or so?

49.jpg.78a622930127b0e7dbba36e090478240.jpg

From now on, any time I see anything related to Dreamfinder I'm just going to automatically think of South Park.

Imagine....a time when Imagination was a GOOD ride.

This would NOT work well with Vault or Margaritas.

42.jpg.3c2c6485e79828965eee81ff9bad205d.jpg

"Wes, we have so much in common. We both hate giraffes, we both play bass in mediocre bands, I even love drinking Vaultaritas!"

Always opt for the more intense version of Mission: Sinise.

You didn't think I could go to EPCOT without showing this, could you?

And the end is somewhere in that mass of terrible humanity. Who the heck cares? Everyone knows the plot. SPOILER ALERT: JESUS IS BORN. The end.

Here's the middle.

Ok, here's the first in a three part series. This is the end of the line to see the "Candlelight Processional".

LOL

THE VAULTARITA COMETH

29.jpg.a9b61af4d06f5b86f64aa9bdb7ea1d1b.jpg

...I tried drinking them at the same time?!

28.jpg.206846144c97cbb1bb2c95c6a0acfadb.jpg

Both of them taste so good by themselves, but what if...

27.jpg.cbb07ee85d3fabe2ffbe85debed2ce67.jpg

Well I have a Vault, and I have a Fiesta Margarita..hmmm....

26.jpg.e9bcbd93b69e4e33618e8de13b7a85e9.jpg

Sadly not Vault Icee's, which are apparently better than sex if you're a pathetic virgin.

Ok, so I decided to spend my last 6 hours or so in Orlando at Islands Of Adventure. Normally I take stupid pictures and make lame jokes, but I decided to try something different. Now I would shoot video with my Sony Digicam in Movie Mode and make lame jokes ON CAMERA. I shot all this today, edited it in the terminal at MCO with iMovie, and now it's uploaded here for you to see.

Erik is really excited to ride the wheelchair seat on FU!!

Still the ride with the best acronym ever: FU.

Doesn't the boy Who look like that dude from High School Musical?

I was trying to take a picture of the Doctor Doom Face doors and the damn things slid open just as I was taking it, so now you have to settle on an unintentionally creepy shot of some girl in Daisy Dukes. I know most of TPR would prefer to see Doctor Doom doors versus a girl, so sorry guys. :(

If you think this slogan rings true, you're probably an alcoholic.

3.jpg.6d86178db6a999a9edeae8e99e01e47b.jpg

A select few people probably get this joke. ;)

Sadly I got to Universal very early, so I couldn't go pay my tribute to the Lt. Dan photo.

I stayed at the Boardwalk a few years back, but the damn ship's mast slide was out of commission.

 

Burn in hell, Figment!

So... so brilliant... it's like a joygasm for the eyes!

Oh...my sides! Damn that was funny!

 

"YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!" is destined to be a classic.

 

Sadly not Vault Icee's, which are apparently better than sex if you're a pathetic virgin.

 

Ouch! Imagine the reaction to the Vaultarita...

 

So, when do we see the mast slide and coaster slide PoVs? (yes I am that sad, but somebody had to ask...)

 

Awesome PTR! Enjoyed it much.

Thursday, so I imagine you DID manage to get onto Spaceship Earth for a preview? >:[

 

Thursday was the day I found out I had to go, not the day I went. So no SSE preview...no biggie.

 

What do you do for a leaving, Wes, that you get these awesome free trips?

 

For a "leaving" I create magical content for the internet that usually doesn't load correctly. Should be noted this was my first ever fully paid business trip.

 

So, when do we see the mast slide and coaster slide PoVs? (yes I am that sad, but somebody had to ask...)

 

I don't do POV stuff, sars.

 

Anyways, great TR and I'm really curious as to what work you had to do there. Get shocked while drinking water?!

 

Just setting up and running some equipment, including an HD camera. Nothing spectacular, bt I guess I'm the only one in our department who can properly run an HD cam and was available. *shrug*

 

How about Vaultaritas at the next TPR party?

In all honesty, the Vaultarita, as awesome as it was to make, was sorta gross after awhile. I was able to drink about half of it. The flavors didn't go well together blended.

 

 

Stay tuned for the thrilling conclusion to this TR, coming later tonight!
