Squirrel! (Who Says Disney is Just For Kids?)

SUBMITTED BY: Daryl Morey  LOCATION: Orlando, Florida (2013) The #1 Dad Responsibility? Act like a goofball for your kids. “Dug,” the Talking Dog from the Disney/Pixar film “UP,” eagerly recreates his Squirrel pose thousands of times a day. It’s a role that Daryl can’t resist! (Daryl Morey is our top Tacky Tourist Photos correspondent from [...]

This is What Fear Looks Like

SUBMITTED BY: Stacey Dunn Reid   LOCATION: Orlando, Florida (2012) We all know from the movie “Jurassic Park” that the T-Rex is a ruthless and heartless beast that will crush you to bits with little or no warning. Nowhere is safe. You could even be eaten while you are on the toilet. With that actor’s [...]

Social Media Emperor

SUBMITTED BY: David Meerman Scott   LOCATION: Cairo, Egypt (2013) World famous papyrus researcher and Egyptian Ambassador Hassan Ragab was charmed by Disney’s EPCOT’s theme park — which inexplicably does not include Egypt — but he thought it was a bit “too computerized” for his tastes. Ragab’s attempt at a “more human” amusement park is the [...]

Fairy Tale Casualty

SUBMITTED BY: Peter and Nancy B.   LOCATION: Glen, New Hampshire (2012) “Police described the vehicle as plump and orange with no license plates…”  (Sorry, we can’t be any more clever than that. Vehicular homicide and drunk driving jokes don’t play well with our demographic).

Pint-Sized Samson (or Delilah)

SUBMITTED BY: Tacky Tourist Photos   LOCATION: Orlando, Florida (2012) Old Testament fans surely don’t wanna miss the chance to play the role of Samson at the Holy Land Experience Bible park on the outskirts of Disney World.  As you know, Samson destroyed the Temple to the Philistine god, Dagon (Judges 16:23-30), by pushing out the [...]

I dare you to bite my finger!

SUBMITTED BY: Allison Scott    LOCATION: Orlando, Florida (2012) Allison’s father, David, looks more like he is mocking the facial expressions of the T-Rex than he is acting terrified. (David Meerman Scott is the author of “The New Rules of Marketing & PR.”)

Battle of the Bunny

SUBMITTED BY: George Scully  LOCATION: Winchester, Virginia (2011) At Dinosaur Land, the most fearsome place in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, no one is safe. Not even pink little bunnies. (Fascinated by giant mutant insects?  Check out the Tough Guy Butterfly).

Channeling Peter Pan

  SUBMITTED BY: Noelle Boc and Isabelle    LOCATION: Orlando, Florida (2011) Just like Buzz Lightyear’s muscle flexing sessions, Peter Pan teaches Walt Disney World visitors how to be confident and sassy. The key is making a fist as you put your hands on your hips and stick your chest out. Captain Hook would be very [...]

Winner of the Sphinx Rodeo

SUBMITTED BY: Ari G.  LOCATION: Glen, NH (2011) New Hampshire, home of Story Land‘s Sphinx, is a helluva lot safer than Cairo right now. (Ari G. is a frequent Tacky Tourist Photo contributor who has munched the World’s Largest Box of Popcorn and bench pressed the Liberty Bell. His favorite ride is Splash Battle: Pharaoh’s [...]

Warning to Cher: The pitfalls of plastic surgery

SUBMITTED BY: Gerry Cronin   LOCATION: Canobie Lake Park, Salem, NH (2011) Sonny & Cher, icons of cheesy 1970s entertainment, would be horrified by how they are being immortalized in a New Hampshire amusement park. The late Congressman Bono looks like one of those overstuffed pantyhose puppets. And Cher’s hair looks like vinyl siding. No amount [...]

Boys Will Be Girls

SUBMITTED BY: Beverly West Leach   LOCATION: Hershey, Pennsylvania (1997) Beverly’s son Zachary (then age 12) captured the spirit of the classic Coppertone Girl ad so well, that we think the suntan lotion company should sign him to a modeling contract. Especially since the real Coppertone Girl wants to put her past behind her. Yeah, Zach’s [...]

Amusement Parks Make Me Hungry

SUBMITTED BY: Ari Garnick   LOCATION: Salem, NH (2011) Imagine what this box would cost at the movies, where we just shelled out $7 for a large (free refills didn’t ease the pain)! Does Canobie Lake Park boast the World’s Largest Box of Popcorn? We filed an official inquiry with the Popcorn Board, the industry trade [...]

Prohibition on the Planet Gamorr

SUBMITTED BY: Bill Burke   LOCATION: Lake Buena Vista, Florida (2011) According to the Wookieepedia, the Gamorreans were “porcine humanoids from the lush jungle Outer Rim planet of Gamorr, where their technological level was equivalent to lower technology periods that human civilizations experienced more than 25,000 years before the battle of Yavin.” The piglike militants “also [...]

When Disney endorsed public humiliation…

SUBMITTED BY: Stacy G.      LOCATION: Orlando, Florida (1976) If only the Puritans knew that their preferred method of torture and humiliation would become a favorite amusement park photo-op centuries later. (Tacky Tourist Photos would love to receive so-called “vintage” travel photos from your childhood, like these Disney pics or this other stockade gem from Williamsburg, [...]

Never wear tie-dye to Basic Training

SUBMITTED BY: Ari Zackin      LOCATION: Orlando, Florida (2006) It’s wonderful for Disney to take a pro-military stand! Remember when we played with these Little Green Army Men as kids, tossing pebbles at their helpless platoons? Believe it or not, these toys are now “controversial.” Thanks for sticking up for the troops, Pixar! (The Zackin family [...]
