I'm so looking forward to our trip in 3 weeks. It will bring much needed happiness! DS who is 7 is so excited, he says he is going to ride Space Mountain this time. We'll see. He braved ToT last time and hated it. So I'm leary of Space Mountain, especially since I can't sit right next to him. I would hate for him to be scared and I can't do anything about it. Heck I was scared the first time I rode it and I was 17!
Nicole - so sorry to hear of the loss of your coworker. I'm hoping you have a great trip to help take your mind off of the sadness and change for a bit.

So I may have shared this story before but it's one of my favorite WDW stories so please excuse if I have.....

We were at WDW when my nephews were young. My youngest DNephew was just the height to be able to ride SM. His dad had not ridden it since the 70's with me, disliked the ride and was happy to let me go with the boys. At every stick they stopped DNephew to measure him which was fairly confusing as a youngster but eventually we made it to the loading area. By this point he had a look like a deer caught in headlights but his brother and I were going so he was too. I decided to let him choose what order we sat in the 3 person car so I knew he was as comfortable as he could be and he placed me in the first seat, selected the second for him and placed his brother in the 3rd seat (who was a big guy being a whole 2 years older! ). So the ride starts and it's absolutely silent behind me. No laughing, no crying, no screaming and I'm thinking this may not be good. The car climbs to the top and starts down - still nothing! So I decide I'll let out a little scream and see what happens. Within 2 seconds I hear the most BLOOD CURDLING SCREAM EVER from immediately behind me!!!!!!! Which continued thru the ride!!!! We get to the end and I'm not certain what I'll discover and turn to find my DNephew is all grins and telling everyone how his Aunt started screaming before he did!

What a cutie you are!

Does anyone else get confused with Kat4 and 2Kats????

2Kats, I loved that story about your nephew. And I don't think you posted it before. Too funny.

Oh my gosh. I just did it. Made the mistake I was trying to avoid!

Must make more coffee....must drink more coffee......

Kat4, loved the story about your nephew!

Muushka -- "must drink more coffee!" That is my mantra all day long! Got to have it.

Kat -- love the Space Mountain story! I rode it when I was 15 and I was terrified. I said Hail Marys through the entire thing.

I've read that coaster newbies should do Big Thunder Mountain first. It will shake you up, but it isn't really scary. If you like it, try Space Mountain. It is scary, but somewhat smoother. If you're OK there, then try Everest at AK. It is mega thrilling (aka scary) but is VERY smooth. Would you experts agree with all that?

My 12 year old thinks he wants to do the big Summit Plummet water slide at Blizzard Beach. 5 stories almost straight down. I've read that it is actually a little painful! If he did that one, I think I would have totally white hair!

DD Kati's favorite ride @ MK is Space Mountain. Has been since her first ride at age 11. She also love Expedition Everest. Her favorite spot is the front car. We have got to ride there twice. The view from the mangled tracks spot is to die for. It looks out over the world and is worth it. Her other fav is ToT. She has been known to repeat it up to 4 times in a row going from the exit back to the ride line so much that the Cast Members at the front of the line get to know her!!

My favorite ride is SM...but not at WDW. We almost hate it there compared to the one at DL. The track at WDW is just not as smooth, and more like our Mattahorn, which really is just uncomfortable.

Signed,
Yet another Kat.

I too just love what they did for the DL SM! I can ride it over and over while we now might miss a FP time at WDW and not be upset. And the Matterhorn - I swear they accomplished their goal on the last redo if it was to make it even rougher.

I've had some experience at this before. I once worked in an office with 6 other people and three of us were named Kathy! Our boss made us choose new "names". And I grew up in a very small town in MN. There were 8 girls and 3-4 boys in our class. Guess what 25% of the girls were name? - Yep - Kathy! Considering we were all born in this same town I'm not certain what my mother was thinking since I was the younger of the two of us by 2 months. I guess she liked the name!

I so agree with both of you about SM & the Matterhorn. We were fortunate to go to both WDW & DL this year. I love SM at DL & rode it over & over. In fact on one day during early entry I was the only one on it & it was a little spooky being on the ride all by myself. Just had to buy that picture! Hate SM at WDW.

Sharon and Kat -- so you don't like SM because it's too rough?

Is it rougher than Big Thunder? I'm doing my little survey here so I can inform my family before we get on these things. Like I said, here at home, my son thinks he is going to be very brave, but that may change when we get there.

Different subject, same idea though -- last time we went, boys were 6 and 8. We did the 3D Bug's Life show and it RUINED them for anything else. They were terrified. Even the big one cried. They just kept saying "Mom, I want to leave. Mom, I want to go now." Sad!

After that, the younger one would do NOTHING. Not the jungle cruise, not Kali, not anything that wasn't totally visible to him. Bummer.

Today I am waiting to hear from one of my dearest friends who has been battling cancer. She gets the results of a big PET scan this morning. It seems that this will determine whether or not there is hope for survival. If you can, shoot up a prayer for her! She also has a couple of little boys and she needs to stick around and raise them!

OK -- gotta wake up my crew and start the day!

Praying your friend gets a report based on Gods grace and mercy

Im not big on SM at WDW. I will ride it because others want too, but its a bit rough for me.

My fave in all of WDW is Splash Mt.

Woke up to 2" of snow this AM. It started last night around 6, and we drove home in it after doing payroll and paperwork at my dads office at his home. Drive wasnt bad, but this AM, lots of slick roads. Problem is the temps, plus its clear so warmth is gone. We have had a weird weather week here, been raining everyday since Mon, then snow with thunder and lightning last night
