The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

The Mad Tea Party

Hop in a GIANT Tea Cup and go for a spin, and spin (see warning below). The Mad Tea Party “will have you dizzy with laughter“. This is the wording taken directly from the Disney website. (Yeah, you’ll be dizzy with something, but for Dad and many like him it’s not laughter.) The Mad Tea […]

Casey Jr. Splash 'n' Soak Station

Casey Jr. has come to town and brought the circus with him – but that’s not all he brought. He’s also brought some very cool entertainment that’s wet and wild.

The Barnstormer Starring The Great Goofini

The Barnstormer, starring the Great Goofini, is one of the new rides in Storybook Circus. When the circus pulls into town there is the big show act, and there is the secondary act The Great Goofini, well, he doesn’t get top billing. He runs second to an elephant who flies. (How sad). Goofini is everywhere […]
