[image description: Three Images. The first is a logo that reads “Morgan’s Wonderland: a special place for special friends.” The second image is a boy in a wheelchair, a girl with crutches, a girl with wings and a boy with a seeing eye dog. The third is headshots of the forementioned children with their names and brief explanations of their super powers. Which read as follows. “Rocket. He has a extreme rocket propelled super chair tha helps him zoom across anything at the speed of sound.” “Jette. She has jet propelled arm braces that help her blast hundreds of feet in the air at lightning speed.” “Morgan. She has big, beautiful wings that enable her to soar through the sky without fear or limitations.” “X-Ray. He has a super dog named Max and his eyewear enables him to see for miles in both X-ray and Night Vision. “]

Did you know that there’s an amusement park specifically designed around the needs of the disabled? Their mascots are a team of disabled superheroes, cut-outs of these four are scattered around the park showcasing them in various stages of their missions. The two pictures of the team came from this review. The ones she took are FAR better than the ones I was able to snap with my crappy phone camera. 

As many of you know, my son is Autistic. No family outing can just happen spontaneously. We have to be as prepared as possible, and anyone who has ever been to a typical amusement park knows that chaotic is putting it nicely. Crowding, the overwhelming noise, and waiting in long lines? It’s not a pretty picture. Morgan’s family had the same kinds of issues.

That’s why they decided to do something about it.

Morgan’s Wonderland is a fully accessible park for disabled children and their families to come enjoy the day together without anyone having to sit out. The staff is fully trained and completely understanding when it comes to physical disabilities, intellectual disabilities, the works. 

I posted some words about this place back when I took my son two summers ago, and we’ve been meaning to go back ever since and plan on doing it soon. I’m just surprised that I haven’t seen people talk about it on my dash at all in all that time. 

Their mission statement: "To provide a safe, clean and beautiful environment free of economic barriers that all individuals, regardless of age, special need or disability, can come to and enjoy."

A one day pass for children 3-10, seniors over 62, and those with military ID is only $10, while general adult admission is just $15. Individuals with special needs are admitted free of charge.

Morgan’s Wonderland is located in San Antonio, TX. These guys are doing some really great things and I think more people need to know about this place.

A lot of people commented on the last one that it convinced them and they were finally going to watch Buffy. I am thrilled to think that anything I made could have spread this lovely show.

Steven Moffat has said that calling Peter Capaldi’s incarnation the ‘Twelfth Doctor’ is wrong.

Speaking in SFX magazine #251, Moffat said: “I’m just going to throw this continuity grenade back at Doctor Who fans and say,…

Imagine if your icon had the voice of Morgan Freeman 

That would be weird since my icon is a cartoon version of me.

Everyone should watch Sky High for the sheer fact that there is a character whose mother is a superhero and father is a super villain and the kid’s name is Warren Peace. 

Warren Peace, man. 

He also looks like this, if that helps at all

This movie is ridiculously underrated and the fact that they didn’t get to make it a four-part series like they had planned is a tragedy

So I was just looking at this awesome concept art from The Princess and the Frog.

I had it enlarged, big as it could go, scrolling along, admiring the details, and then I got almost to the end of the picture, right along the fountain.

This movie takes place in the 1920s.
