i've only ridden MS once. it was in may of 2007 when we went for the first time as adults. i took some dramamine just in case and it seemed to work for me because i was fine! the funniest thing about it was that we get in there, sit down, get all strapped in and ray looks down and says, "ARE THOSE BARF BAGS????" i looked and sure enough, they were. i think that's the first and only time i've seen barf bags actually ON a ride! luckily no one in our space shuttle had to make use of them.

Okay, I've decided on who I think you look like. IMO, it's a cross between Brittany Murphy, Jennifer Love Hewwitt (but blonde of course) and Rachel McAdams a tiny bit. I would say like... 40/40/20?

How's that for getting exact about it?

OT-or should I say, on a prior topic? I got my Fit Flops today! I really like them. Have you been wearing yours?

Star Tours: I seem to be one of the few that likes this ride. And I have to say that all this talk with the stories of all these rides is seriously making me want to go to Disneyland! Someone said the DL version was better, but I honestly don't remember the difference. I can tell you that I got to ride it the year it was first introduced in DL!

My unfavorite memory that I can't help but think of is that of my mom riding this ride. She just can't take it at all, she ends up closing her eyes and then she gets really disoriented and doesn't feel well at ALL for a while following.

My favorite memory is how DS could do a total recap of the ride after one ride. He went through a major Star Wars phase (he wanted to try to dress Jedi-like ALL the time, wearing nothing but brown, tan, and black, in solid colors).

Mission Space: We figured DS should ride the calm side, and the wait was short, it was pm EMH. We rode that. It was fun. DS was just a tad to short to really enjoy it totally though. He could see the screens very well. DH was just so eagar to ride the spinning side. Turns out there is a total playground/gaming area where you get off of Mission Space, so I supervised DS while DH went back to hop on the spinning side. He was glad he did it, but he did say he felt pretty messed up from riding it.

Hey now...where's my sense of adventure?! I'd like to adventure away from puking and freaking out in a closed space. Thank you Dawn!

Oh I'm so glad you like your fit flops! I haven't worn them yet since they're back home. But, I will wear them this upcoming week while I'm home on break!

And that's okay if you're one of the only ones who likes Star Tours! To each their own! I'm one of the only ones I've found on here who really likes Tony's!

Ugh, I still think I'll pass on MS!

So, I decided to try the orange (that's the original side, right?) with DF the last time we went. I was so scared during the whole line; they keep telling you to look forward; if you look sideways, you will get sick, etc. etc.

When we got strapped in, we ended up being with two other girls my age. I was terrified; I'm not normally claustrophobic, but I felt terrible and like I was trapped in there. The girl next to me grabbed for the barf bag right when it was over, too.

Obviously, I hate it. I refuse to even go on the "safe" side. I actually thought the ride was really stupid, too. It makes it sound like you control the whole thing, and all you do is hit a flashing button when yours lights up. My dad hated it too, and he loves thrill rides. We were both just praying for it to stop as soon as the ride had started.

DH refused to ride it on our honeymoon after he had heard me talk about how horrible it was. I just don't understand how anyone likes that one..

Ooo I have never done this ride as I get motion sickness quite bad and really couldn't deal with feeling bad. However, I would like to try it one day, it just needs to be my final ride so I don't spend the rest of the time feeling ill like I did after the Aladdin thing in DisneyQuest and Wild Artic at SW. My Dad and Nick went on it though and went on the wrong side, the easy one. They came out acting all hard saying "That wasn't that bad, I don't know what people are talking about", until we pointed out they had done the easy one

I absolutely love MS! I started on the Green side, and was like, "Ho hum." I and a friend immediately got off and went to the fastpasses so we could come back later with my daughter. I rode MS's orange 3 more times in October! I can't wait to ride it again! It really is tough on people who are really claustorphobic, though.

Oh for sure!! I absolutely meant them as a compliment! You are super photogenic and I have yet to see a "bad" picture of you. You look gorgeous in all of them.

Attraction of the Day...

The Racecars

Yeah, I know that's not the real name of them but that's what we call them. I'll never forget riding with my sis the first time she was big enough to drive them. It was a jerky ride! We kept going back and forth bumping the bumper from each side. She was being so serious and trying to drive good. It was cute!

And then...back in '05 when it was my B/F's first time at WDW, he couldn't wait to ride the racecars. He's a big NASCAR and racing fan so he was pumped. Well, I failed to mention that they are S-L-O-W. So, I rode with him (yes we fit in the car haha) and the whole time he was like "C'mon! Why isn't this thing going any faster?!" and freaking out. And then he goes "I think a snail just passed us."
