I plan on doing the same thing to any future kids I may have. Boys can be pirates. Girls too actually. I just like pirates.

OMG - you have to watch Dumbo. Check it out from your library and watch. It is such a sweet movie. And it brings fond memories for me, as it was my son's absolute favorite as a toddler. It is just over an hour long, and would entertain him for that amount of time while I was busy with his new-born baby sister. BTW, those two are now 21 and 18 years old.

Sounds Dangerously I find painfully dull

Did not think that Chef Mickey's was great

The BIG ONE........when I was young (very young and stupid) I thought Snoopy was better than Mickey!

as a young child I loved Snoopy and Raggedy Ann & Andy, but I was totally in love with The Mickey Mouse Club!! I wanted to be just like Annette! Too bad I couldn't sing!

I'm terrified on drops so I can't steel myself to go on any of the major coasters (can do Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain(which took years to work up to--even though I went on as a child). Never did Space Mountain or Expedition Everest, and wouldnt EVER consider Tower of Terror!

I find splash mountain to be much worse drop wise than space mountain.

Really!! Hmmmmm Before I finally went on splash mountain, I watch it on youtube on some peoples videos over and over, to find the point at which it was scary. I discovered that was as it is cresting the hill upward just as it comes out of the "cave" before the final drop. So I decided to close my eyes so I couldn't see the distance. Once it went down, I could open my eyes again and it was so short. It was that feeling that the log was up in the air, probably from seeing the tiny people in the crowd below.

there are no videos of space mountain that I could find because its dark. I wasn't sure if that would make it scarier since I couldn't anticipate the drops. If the drops are no worse than say, Thunder Mountain, then maybe I'd try it.

starts out dark, but the ride itself has the lights on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nm8teZcbJM

space mt doesn't have the big drop like splash does. and since it is dark, you can't see the drops, only feel them, and they really don't feel even close to that big one on splash. that splash one makes me feel like i am about to float out of the seat. never felt that in space.

SWEET!!!! Its that fly out of the seat feel that I get going over the "cliff" on Splash that turns my tummy upside down. If Space Mountain isn't like that... then I should be able to handle it. I can handle Thunder Mountain. Goofy's Barnstormer doesn't have big drops either, but it jerks you around so you get whip lash! You'll have to wait til August to find out if I don't chicken out!

you do jerk around a little bit because you can't see to lean the right way ahead of time, but seriously, if you have rode those, you can ride space mt.

I hate Dumbo, Bambi and Pinocchio. LOL. I don't know why I just can't stand those three movies.

Oh and this one isn't really a secret but people find it strange that my favorite ride at MK is Carousel of Progress. LOL. I can't help it! It just makes me feel so fuzzy!

- I'm almost 21 and my favourites are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Winnie the Pooh (the old cartoons/movies). But ofcourse I LOVE the movies too, but just before I go to sleep I love to watch MMC and/or WTP.
- Everytime I visit Disneyland Paris I could cry when I walk in and see main street and the castle. I'm sure I'll cry when I walk into WDW next year, as it is a long cherished dream. Oh, and with fireworks too.
- I'm going to Disneyland Paris with my boyfriend and an other couple next month. I don't like it that much that the other couple is going with us, while it seemed great when first planned.
