The Winner

Kimberlee A.

“Last year my husband and I were on our annual Disney World Trip but this time I was actually 5 months pregnant so we decided to do our Gender Reveal on Splash Mountain. First and foremost, we had no idea if we were having a boy or girl. I had the gender of our baby in a sealed envelope, I brought along a white poster board and a sharpie marker. When we got in line I went up to the cast members and handed them the poster board, marker, envelope, and asked them to write on the board what we were having but big enough so we could see it during the drop. They went above and beyond for us! Gave us our own log, decorated the poster rather than just writing a gender, and all of the cast members were telling everyone what was going on, some even crying happy tears. It was just perfect. So when we got to the top right before the fall we opened the poster and faced it out so all could see. Immediately after without looking at the front we folded it up. It wasn’t until we got to the ride photos where we discovered we were having a beautiful baby girl. On Monday – August 10th, 2020, our precious Sophia Grace will be having her first birthday. All of the cast members and of course Splash Mountain gave us a moment we will never forget to remember and we will cherish that forever and always. I can’t wait to share our story with or baby girl when she gets to go on Splash Mountain for the very first time in her life.”

“Rockin Roller Coaster by Aerosmith at Disney’s Hollywood Studios 2014…..

While waiting in line, I overheard the husband of this family talking about how he was going to pretend he was sleeping for the initial photo when the ride starts. I not once spoke to this man but I knew right from this moment what I was going to do for the picture. Low and behold I was put in the front row with this man. He right away pretended to be asleep… I didn’t make my move until the very last moment right before the camera lights went off. I put a look on my face, like… “Who is this guy, pretending to be asleep on a ride…. so original!”. After the camera went off and we went straight into the loop… he opened his eyes and enjoyed the ride. The ride finished and we make our way to the cue which shows all the pictures…. what a huge surprise and the entire family were laughing so hard and pointing at the screen at me with tears in their eyes. I kept my distance so they wouldn’t see me but I heard every word coming from their mouths. The husband said it was by far the funniest pose for a picture he had ever seen and his wife, puts her hand on his shoulder and says “Hunnie, that kid outdid your pose, he made that picture what it’s worth! ” I waited until they left and I exited the area. I can honestly say that family and other people were taking photos of the photo just so they could cherish that awesome picture. I even got a sense of enjoyment out of it. To this day, it will go down in history of my favorite most memorable Disney ride picture of all time. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I did!”
