Reasons I Love Disney A-Z..."R"

"R"
Roy O. Disney - Walt's big brother, for all of the wonderful things Walt did none of it would have been possible without Roy. Walt was the creative brother, Roy was the financial genius in the family. Together they were unstoppable, just look at what they accomplished. When Walt died before Disney World was finished, Roy put off his retirement to make sure Walt's dream was completed, and even added Walt's name to make it Walt Disney World. So when you think about Disney, just remember the "quiet" brother behind the scenes, I promise he was crucial to making all magic that is "The Happiest Place On Earth."
Rafiki (The Lion King) - The old and wise baboon who is a true and faithful friend to Mufasa. He has quite a sense of humor too. I really liked him in the movie, and he certainly taught Simba a lesson or two.
Rabbit & Roo - Both friends of Winnie the Pooh. Rabbit with his temper and his garden to tend to and little Roo the youngest citizen of the Hundred Acre Wood.
Remy & Ratatouille - A rat who is also a wonderful French chef, who knew. Now we all know "anyone can cook."
Rex (Toy Story) - This guy worries way too much about his small roar, but he is a great friend who is always there anytime the other toys need him.
Randall Boggs (Monsters Inc.) - This monsters ability to scare children is commendable, his is about to break the scare record. But his ruthless behind the scenes activities and willingness to kidnap children and steal their screams to store energy is cruel.
Roz (Monsters Inc.) - Number 1, as it turns out, Roz was a stickler for paperwork wasn't she. She was a hoot and kept Mike on his toes didn't she?
Rock N' Roller Coaster - Aerosmith worked with Disney to get the music exactly perfect for this roller coaster ride. It's an all indoor que, and you go from 0-58 in just over 2 seconds. I am not usually a roller coaster girl, but I'm gonna give it a shot, I'll let you know how it goes...
Runoff Rapids - When you visit Blizzard Beach make sure you ride down Mount Gushmore on the three unique waterslides called Runoff Rapids. The two outer slides can accommodate rafts that hold two people but the middle slide is enclosed the whole way down and only one person inner tube are allowed.
Rainforest Cafe - Disney World has 2 locations, one at Downtown Disney and the other at Animal Kingdom. I guess the Disney World site says it better than I ever could "Rainforest Cafe in Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park brings adventure to the lunch and dinner table with outstanding American cuisine that includes luscious salads, pasta, sandwiches, seafood, burgers and poultry dishes, as well as a variety of vegetarian selections." This particular quote is from the Animal Kingdom section of the Disney site but the menu is the same at each location.
Rose & Crown Pub - From what I understand reasonably close an English Pub in EPCOT, complete with fish and chips, and free flowing ale.
Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant - It St. Patty's Day, I can't leave this one out now can I? It's in Downtown Disney and serves us traditional Irish favorites like beef stew and Guiness,and has live entertainment.
