Is Slinky Dog Dash the Best Coaster in WDW?

Hmm.  Great question, eh?  To get my full take, listen to my “glorious” and long-awaited return to the airwaves at …

WDW Main Street Podcast – Episode 461 – A Trip Report with Bob!

Yes, folks.  I’m finally back at the pub!  I dust off my bar stool and join John and Doug to provide a good, old-fashioned Walt Disney World trip report!

What will you hear?  Well, aside from Slinky, what breathtaking ride did I experience for the first time?  Where did Mrs. All in WDW and I stay?  What pool bar became our lunchtime home for a few days?  Listen to the show!

In the meantime, what do I think of Andy’s dashing dog?  Well, let me put it this way … it delivers way more zip than Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.  It’s not as wild and bumpy as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  In short, it was a very good coaster.

Having said that, how long did I have to wait in line to enjoy the ride?  And, what impressed me the most about Toy Story Land’s new “marquee” attraction?  You guessed it!  Listen to the show!

By the way, catch John’s “live” ride-through as he dashes through Toy Story Land on Slinky’s back!  Find it here!
