In 4 days at the parks last month we went on:

Tea Cups 16 times
Dumbo 13 times
Silly Symphony Swings 14 times
Zephyr 9 times
Jumpin' Jellyfish 8 times
King Arthur's Carousel 8 times
King Triton's Carousel 6 times


I'm still dizzy.

Star Tours. I like rides, but this one just makes me want to hurl donut rings.

One of these days, I'll be testing how efficiently Disney can clean up lost meals.

What does it say about me if...

I am kind of glad It's a Small World will be closed when we visit. I like it once, but that is enough to get that song in my head for way too long. DS7 is very into trains. I imagine we will ride any kind of train ride a number of times.

DH is fixated on Indy. Once per day is enough! He'd drag me on it 3-4x per day over a 5-day trip. By the last evening, I wanted to KILL Sallah and Indy, chop the head off that snake and as a finale, throw dynamite into the flaming pit to see what would REALLY happen!

It would probably be better if there were a proper steam engine powering the thing. Whatever they have is an internal combustion engine (maybe gasoline or propane) with a transmission and doesn't really sound like a train. It actually sounds a lot like one of those ubiquitous CP Huntington amusement trains from Chance Rides.

However, the thing is probably about as easy to operate as driving a car. A steam locomotive would need qualified engineers and the training time would be steep. I know of a couple of miniature steam trains near where I live, and they don't have that many qualified engineers to operate the things. I think the Little Puffer at the San Francisco Zoo only has one qualified engineer.

This is my daughter's favorite ride and one of the few rides she will go on. Thankfully she is older and doesn't want mom to go on it with her. I think there are a total of 3 ride and Tarzans house that she will do. We spend a LOT of time at the tea cups! One time she and grandma went on it. She got it spinning to fast that gm almost got sick.

My youngest DD loves King Triton's carousel. She will ride it over and over while my older DD and I go on other rides at DCA. Bless my mother for being willing to ride it with her. Once they rose while we went on ToT and I think they rode it 14 times in a row. After standing in line the first four times the CM just let them stay on. She happily chose a different animal to ride each time.

DH and I alternated taking my older DS on Space Mountain and Star Tours while the other took my younger DS on Buzz Lightyear.

I probably rode Buzz at least 8-10 times over the past 4 days. And my score still sucks.

Also, don't eat a pretzel with cheese then go on Space Mountain, then Star Tours immediately after. Yuk.

So we just got back from being at the park last week. DS is now 7 (Thank God) and is now tall enough to ride California Screamin. Well, guess which ride he fell in love with, yep CS. Over and over. Luckily, he is 7 and can ride all by himself. While DH and I both can tolerate the ride and actually like it, we just don't like going on it 10 times in a row. So DS utilized the single rider line. I walked him through it the first time so he knew what to do and other then when he is in elevator, I could see him the whole time until he got on the ride and then waited for him at the exit when he got done. He LOVED it and went on it over and over. Same with Goofy's Sky School. I don't mind it once or twice but not over and over. So single rider line for that one two. DH and I bougth dinner at Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta and sat a table right next to GSS where we could see him the whole time and were right by the exit. Worked out GREAT for lots of rides including the kiddy rides (if your child is old enough to ride alone).

Now that said, I would never send him on Indy as a single rider since I cannot watch him while waiting in line.

I know this more attraction than ride but I would be happy to never set foot on Tom Sawyer Island again. My son could spend every day, all day there.

I got lost on Tom Sawyers Island when I was little, and I haven't gone back since. I am traumatized!

Luckily my hubby and I have different tolerances. I can do Winnie the Pooh, Buzz, and Monsters Inc 10x in a row. And he can do Star Tours and Screamin'.
