I've been compiling my must-do list for awhile, and boy is it long! Christmas 2012 will be my 10th trip and......drumroll please…..... I have never ridden Tower of Terror, because quite frankly I am a chicken. So, in honor of my 10th trip to the World, I plan on dragging myself into ToT and riding without too many tears

LazyDaisy is right! RRR is my favorite ride at the World and I have probably ridden it 100 times-not a single drop on the whole ride!!

The primary thing on my next trip will be Mission Space orange. I've read so many terrifying things about it I'm not sure I'll accomplish this.

One thing I did do the last round was Jungle Cruise after dark. It was actually unbelievable at night and definitely worth a go.

Here are my hopefuls for our September trip!!

Eat at a new restaurant we haven't tried before (Mission complete: Actually eating at 3 new ones!)
Ride Soarin
Relax for a morning in and swimming (we have NEVER done this before but I think it will be nice to take a break for a morning)
Arrive for rope drop
Stay for fireworks (I am usually exhausted and just ready to go and beat the crowds before they are over)
Stay at a new resort (Accomplished, we are staying at PORR)
Country Bear Jamboree
Either Splash Mountain or the Runaway Train (we shall see, I am terrified of splash and not too good with roller coasters but I know it would be a cool memory for DS)

Loops, rolls, inversions, darkness, loud music - yes, but no straight drops.

Here is a CG drawing of the track.

It's a very short ride. Put on your "big girl panties" and just do it!

We added the Waterparks and More Option. So, we will visit Disney Quest and one or both waterparks for the first time. Our big night out will be LaNouba. (And, we are staying at SSR so we are close to DTD and TL.)

Five. More. Sleeps.

We are going to eat breakfast at The Crystal Palace!
I am going to the Norway exhibit and ride the Maelstrom, and we are going to sit through the France movie, too.
My youngest son is taking French and I am going to make him ask for dessert at the Boulangerie Patisserie in French.


For the PP that is going to watch the Canadian film, we loved it!
I did get a little sick when I turned around to see all the screens.

Oh, I promised my DD and youngest DS I would ride TOT with them....pray for me, please!

I do not like roller coasters at all, but RnR is my favorite ride ever! Being in the dark with the Aerosmith music blaring is the best! Try it and I bet you will love it too! I was terrified the first time I rode it. And then, I rode it 3 more times in a row. It's awesome! Can't wait to ride it again in October. Our son started riding when he was 7 and he loves it too.
