Kill Refurb Marry- Disney Parks Transportation

It's time for another round of Kill~Refurb~Marry with Mouse on the Mind and This Happy Place Blog! If you're not familiar with this game, it's the one where you choose three related things within a given theme: one you have no use for (Kill), one you'd like to revamp a bit (Refurb), and one you love (Marry). This month's theme is Disney Parks Transportation!

Here we go.....

Kill: OK, I'm going to have to start right off with cheating. I can't really kill anything in this category- but if I could, I'd kill the feeling I get when I'm on the Tragical Express. Yes, the dreaded Tragical Express, the saddest ride on in the world, the YOUR VACATION'S OVER version of the Magical Express. Few things are more depressing than that ride back to the airport. Sure, they make it as palatable as possible, with interesting video segments, old animation clips, and low key tidbits of information... but when it comes right down to it, the feelings that come along on this ride are the worst.

This should have a sad face for the way back to the airport...

Refurb:  It has to be the Monorail. Monorail, I love you- but you've seen better days. You're down quite often, you're showing some wear and tear, and you've started sometimes wearing wraps. Please stop that.

Marry:  Friendship Boats. The Epcot area resorts are my favorite, and I love cruising around on Crescent Lake. Sure, it's not the quickest way to get between Epcot and Hollywood Studios- for that, I walk. But a relaxing Friendship Boat journey is a perfect way for me to sit back, take a few deep breaths, listen to the water, and think about what lies ahead. Plus, I love watching the Friendship Boat Cast Members, in their nautical uniforms. They have a particular way of working those controls and navigating the waters, and they always seem to be loving their jobs.

There you have it! Make sure to check out all these Kill~ Refurb~ Marry entries from around the blogosphere! 


  1. Kill: I agree100%! The Tragical Express is the worst.

    Refurb: Well, I guess you are right, although it pains me to say it. My childhood memories of the wonder of the monorail are absolutely magical...but I'll admit they probably don't have the same effect on kids now and could use a little updating.

    Marry: You lost me on this one! I've tried to love these boats, but it's just not happening for me! But those captains sure do have a sweet gig.
