Stop, Drop & Disney!
Our Kober family and friends get together to discuss how they Stop, Drop & Disney! Join us in this podcast as we talk about how we enjoy the Walt Disney World Parks & Resorts when we have no Fast Passes, no reservations, no agendas, no plans. It’s often our favorite time in the parks.
It’s hard to understand these little nooks and places if you don’t see it. Let us share some photos that illustrate places we discuss in the podcast. They are places we love to Stop, Drop & Disney:
Jennica kicked off the list with Monster Laugh Floor, which I assure you, Braedon has been to.
We also mentioned the People Mover, with its wonderful views of Tomorrowland. Unfortunately there are problems with this attraction. Check out this article to learn more.
At the top of the list seems to be the infamous Country Bear Jamboree. I’m guilty at starting this fandom, which goes back to my childhood.
Braedon mentioned the checkerboards, and I love Tom Sawyer Island. I think the two are beautifully combined in this photo:
We spoke of parking at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and taking the Disney Skyliner to Epcot. It’s a lot better than fighting the enormous parking lot, park entry, and construction walls of Future World.
From there, it’s a quick stroll to so many places around World Showcase where you can Stop, Drop, and Disney.
Here’s one of those lovely corners of United Kingdom.
Here’s Allison’s favorite corner at Epcot: The Winnie the Pooh Greeting area.
We all agreed that we love Japan.
Jennica loves The Living Seas. I didn’t have any pictures of cuddle fish, but I had a great turtle photo.
If you listen to our podcast, you’ll know about this path that goes from Spaceship Earth directly over to the Living Seas. Definitely check it out next time in the park. It’s fantastic!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Braedon absolutely loves Asia’s Maharajah Jungle Trek. Lots to do and see, and if feels like it’s a world away:
I mentioned my love of Flame Tree Barbecue by day…
And by night.
And the views of Rivers of Light are quite lovely.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios
I have a personal love for the park area around Echo Lake. People watching (people staring as Braedon calls it) allows you the opportunity to catch the Citizens of Hollywood as they go about their day.
Jennica–all of us actually–love Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards at night–especially as the holidays get underway.
My personal favorite is along the terrace at Ronto Roasters–especially at night. Add a Ronto Wrap and a Blue Milk and you can call it a day.
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is full of little corners that invite Stop, Drop and Disney. Here’s a little tree decorated with lanterns near the entrance by Toy Story Land.
Disney Springs & Walt Disney World Resort
Even more than any one park, we spend considerable time at Disney Springs. We don’t even do the malls in Orlando. We just enjoy a stroll around the many sections that comprise this newly refurbished destination.
You can find lots of great places along the springs themselves:
Anything with a boat works at Disney. We love the shuttles that carry guests between Disney Springs and Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts.
The entire Walt Disney World Resort beckons you to Stop, Drop and Disney. Allison prefers a monorail run to Disney’s Contemporary Resort:
Here’s my favorite stop along the monorail route. Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
Definitely check out Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, whether it’s indoors…
Or outdoors along the savannah. Here you can find great opportunities to Stop, Drop & Disney.
The Skyliner offers new journeys for Stop, Drop and Disney (don’t take the “drop” part too literally here. Recently I’ve been checking out the wonderful offerings at the new Disney Riviera Resort.
I love the murals in this resort. We’re going to offer a more closeup look in the weeks to come.
We’ll also do a video cast from Voyageurs’ Lounge, which offers wonderful Disney historical tidbits. Definitely check it out!
Well, that’s about it. That’s our take on some of our favorites. Make sure you listen to our podcast. How do you like to Stop, Drop & Disney? Do you find time when you visit the parks, or are you too busy between FastPasses.
