both my boys had nightmares after this ride and refused to ride it again and they like SM. The ghosts weren't ghosts but more like bloody or fire-lit skeletons that chased you along the ride and random eyes and such.

I know there are a lot of responses, but I just returned so I'm going to give my opinion on Ghost Galaxy.

I thought it was amazing. I would actually love to see Space Mountain like that all the time. Now I've never been to Disneyland, so it's the only way I experienced Space Mountain.

The "ghost" is like a ghostly constellation. I'm not sure if it was the music or the "ghost" but it seemed like it screamed at you... and sometimes it looked like it was trying to grab you.

It is REALLY loud though. Every time I rode it I came off with a headache.

Do I think it's scary? Yes and no... it's not like boogyman, "I'm going to get you scary..." It's more like "omg am I going to crash into that screen, oh crap it's a drop/turn" scary. I don't know if that makes sense.

I really liked it though.

Gost Galaxy did not feel Disney to me at all. It was much more disturbing. I know it was supposed to be a "fire" guy, but it was more like a "guts" guy, and he was serioulsy scary. IMO, that ride fits Universal Studios, not Disneyland.

We typically go to Disneyland in the fall and I really miss the normal space mountain on our trips! Ghost galaxy just doesn't do it for me!

I love Ghost Galaxy, and I don't think it's scary at all. Now I do think some kids might find it scary. Delores (the name of the ghost) can be pretty loud and she's distorted looking.

I think Ghost Galaxy is amazing. I definitely wouldn't put it up there with Horror Nights. Horror Nights is actually scary and it's 20x worse than anything Disney does, as in scary.

OMG! How did you find out the name of the ghost? That's kind of cool!

I rode GG last week and was actually a little disappointed, I didn't think it was that scary. I didn't see the outside queue because we did fastpass.

I don't know that the ghost has an official name...Delores come up as one of the nicknames given to the Ghost by CMs. Kind of like "Bob" was the nickname used by D23 at one point (http://d23.disney.go.com/news/2009/09/space-ghost/).

I know the ghost is meant to be scary, but I found it cheesy. Also, the ride seemed a lot slower to me because of the different music. I didn't like it at all and Space Mountain is one of my favorite rides.

HAHAHA, I used to work at Disneyland, specifically Fantasyland. My best friend worked in Tomorrowland and she told me the ghost's name

I just rode it, and it wasn't too scary! We sat in the third row back, and it was actually hard to see the ghost most of the time.

My kids were scared of ghost galaxy too. Y son loves coasters and space mountain at WDW and refused to go on it again. Also he was told the ghost's name was Delores too by our VIP tour guide.
