Fun fun fun! Although now I am re-terrified to try Space Mountain again... thanks

My one and only trip to WDW was back in '81 as part of a highschool choir trip. The only park was MK and we kids ran around from one ride to the next having a blast. I had NEVER been on amusement park rides before except those little travelling carnival type ones. Anyway, I had survived BTMR with no problem so I was easily talked into Space Mtn. Back in those ancient times the seats were much different and in my traumatized memory of this I believe they were benches that could seat 3 people across with a bar that came down over your lap. Well I ended up having to ride alone in my car Now in those days I was a very tiny 16 year old, just over 5' and maybe weighing 95 lbs. Once that evil ride from he** started I was slipping and sliding all over that bench and under that bar, clinging to it with all of my strength. I was convinced I was going to die that day...

So anyway, I've recently seen photos of the new seating which looks a LOT more secure so I have tentatively decided to try it again this fall We'll see

I absolutely love Space mountain and thought rockin rollercoaster was harsh.
And the tea cups? I could never ride those just watching makes me sick, just looking at the blurry back ground in your picture made me queezy. Good job on another entertaining installment.

It has been a delight reading your trip report. I have been to the World a dozen times and still get so excited to go. Going again in June and then again in November. In June we will stay in the Animal Kingdom Lodge. For November-Pop Century. Thank you so much for the great pictures. Can't wait to read the rest of the TR.

Aussie Angel - loving the TR!!

We have done WDW 3 times and last year we did Disneyland California (and Vegas) And we are gonna do them again this year Sept/oct and we will do LA and Grand Canyon this time! I wasn't fussed about going to Vegas but when we were there I had a great time and can't wait to go back! It was hot but not as hot as when you went and not as busy as it was November!

I love seeing your pics of WDW, makes me wanna go back NOW!! The one that got me most was the one of the two of you at Rock 'N' Roller Coaster, one of my favs. as you can see the wet floor from the cleaning and I can smell the 'new day in Orlando' smell!!

I also love my food and drink but as I'm on Weight watcher and cutting down on both I will need to get back into training (eating and drinking) before we go back to DL and Vegas!!

Can't wait for the next installment!

Ps, My husband and you DF would get along well - Star wars Nerd, Loves Chip and Dale, does what he is told in Disney and a fellow Aussie (he is originally from Adelaide!)

Love your report I did not like space M., I was holding on for dear life. Because of that ride I was too chicken to try RnR. My DH tolf me if I could not handle Space M. RnR would be too much so I did not do it.

I did howerver do the one in AK with the yeti before Space M.(had my eyes closed so did not even see the yeti ).

Thanks for the advice about the Sci-Fi, I'm going to have a look at their menus again. Can't find anywhere else I like the look of at MGM. Keep the trip reports coming. Got my DS (9) hooked now too.

Another great installment. I can't believe you loved RnR but didn't like SM? Previous poster is right about the seats used to be alot different back in the old days. You actually sat 2 people to a seat, where the front person sat directly in front of the rear person and you were both belted in together with your feet out in front (kinda like riding a toboggan, oh do you have snow where you live?) Anyway, I always remember that because I had to ride in front of my sister once and her braces got caught in my hair when she opened her mouth to scream Keep up the good work, now I have my DS waiting for the next installment as well!
