We’re still over here at the Mouse-Next-Door in Bugs Land, which is basically like Little Kid Land. I already posted about the bumper cars so here’s Flik’s Fun Fair’s equivalent of the Teacups.
That’s right! Pissed-off ladybugs!
Here we are at Francis’ Ladybug Boogie. Now I will admit that it has been a very, very long time since I saw A Bug’s Life. And I’m pretty sure I’ve only seen it once, quite possibly when I lived in Missouri. Which was a while ago.
So I didn’t quite remember the character of Francis, but his ride seems fairly comprehensive.
Read the bottom
Yep, it says “He’s No Lady.” And you know, I get that he’s miffed that people keep mistaking him for a lady, but at this point he should probably just get over it.
The Boogie part of Francis’ Ladybug Boogie comes from the record theme.
I remember these!
Like the rest of Flik’s Fun Fair, the theming is exquisite.
Which you can clearly see from this dark, entirely nondescript picture
I do love that many of the FFF rides have shaded queues.
Anyway, you board your pissed off ladybug
"Theo! Look at Mommy! Look at Mommy!"
Inside your pissed off ladybug is a wheel that just like the teacups, spins your car around.
We have told Theo that it’s just a handle and it doesn’t actually turn. I’m hoping that by the time he figures it out, he’ll be paying for his own Disneyland tickets.
Anyway, the group of angry ladybirds* swirl around in a crazy carnival-type pattern…
…underneath this bafflingly lame picture I took of the roof. I really have no idea what I was going for here, but whatever it was, I didn’t make it.
Ah now, they can't all be good pictures. Especially here on MYWTM.
In all, it’s a short but fun ride. It doesn’t have the capacity of the teacups, but its position in the park means there are far fewer crowds back there. I don’t know if Theo actually liked it this time–he’s liked it in the past and he likes the teacups, but seemed trepidatious this time. Then again, he is 3 years old.
*The terms ladybug and ladybird are interchangeable. Theo is in the Ladybug class at his preschool.
And speaking of Theo, we decided to take a cute picture at the Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater meet and greet.
The cars don't sign autographs
How cute is that?
