People ask me why I keep going back to Disney. Truthfully, it's because the rides there are just my speed. There are coasters but they aren't big, scary coasters. I went to Six Flags with my friends in college and rode 2 rides the whole day. I'm just too scared of most rides. I didn't feel like I got my money's worth, while at Disney, there is enough to keep me occupied all day. I was in MK from open to close on Friday and wasn't bored for a moment!
Same here. When I was a teen, I went on everything my friends wanted to go on - even the coasters, though I didn't really enjoy most of them. I don't know if I'd call myself a chicken, exactly; it's just that the physical sensation of going down a big, straight drop or being turned upside-down is pretty unpleasant for me.

Then, the summer I graduated high school, we went on the wooden roller coaster at Canada's Wonderland. That thing is ROUGH. It makes herky-jerky Space Mountain feel super-smooth by comparison. My head, back, neck, and even my teeth hurt for the rest of the day. That's when I decided that I wouldn't let anyone peer-pressure me into riding anything anymore!

I still love BTMRR and Space Mountain, but I'm really glad for the mix of wild and tame rides at WDW.

This is my vote.
