- RNRC
- Tower of Terror
- Everest
- Space
- Splash
I have tried BTMRR, and it confirmed that roller coasters are not for me .
Just because BTMRR made you sick, doesn't mean the others will. Do you know what part of it made you sick? I'm not a fan of BTMRR, but I'll do it (just have to take it easy for a little while after) and I find Everest to be the worst for me (It has to do with the going in a circle down the mountain at the end)

But I have absolutly no problem on ToT and Splash.

I can tolorate RnR better than BTMRR, but still need to take it easy after riding for a few

How about an entire park? I have yet to visit the Animal Kingdom, and figure I'll do so only if I'm there over 5 days and feel like running over for a few hours. Otherwise, I always skip it.

The only one I won't ride on is TOT. I'm scared of heights and that one would freak the h*ll out of me.

There are lots of things that I haven't seen/done. The biggest is Animal Kingdom, and I am so excited to see it in November!

We were literally sitting practically on top of each other, arms wrapped around each other, practically in tears. That is a terrible show. And while honey I shrunk the audience didn't have the same effect on me, I could take or leave that one too. I just lift up my feet during the mouse part. Lol
I'm with you on that one, DznyPrnces. Unlike you, I WAS in tears and DID leave early.

Mark of a procrastinator: The thought of doing something exhausts you.

I suffer from motion sickness but I have done both versions of Mission Space and I have done the Teacups. Never again but I did ride them once.

I have never done Primeval Whirl, Tom Sawyer Island or the Riverboat. Given that our WDW trips are coming to a close I am going to make an effort to ride Primeval Whirl. Hopefully I won't get too sick.

Primeval Whirl is pretty fun. Though I've found if you ride it twice in a row, youll get a head ache lol

I've never been on Toy Story Mania, theres always a huge line and we've always used our first FP in the morning for TOT or Rock-n-roll Roller Coaster. Is it really all that for such a long line?

Have never done Astro Orbiter - too long of a long every time we are in the area
Captain EO - just have no desire
New things that have opened since summer 2013

Haven't done anything inside Innovations in years

One that I have never done in my 35 years of going to the parks and will never do---Swiss Family Treehouse. I do enough walking as it is--don't need to climb stairs to not be entertained too.

Also, one other thing: On this and other threads, there are so many people that say they won't go on or can't stand Disney's "thrill rides" (the coasters, TOT, etc.). I'm guessing these people either don't frequent other amusement parks or just don't ride those thrill rides, because Disney's are mild in comparison. (Of course, I understand why.)

LOL this is a must do for us every trip. The kids just roll their eyes as I do (shh) but for DH it is nostalgic as he remembers it as a child from going to the NY Worlds Fair. it is also a good option for when you are waiting for your fastpass time to open up for something in the same area

Just did this for the first time a couple weeks ago. We liked it! Kinda creepy, yet interesting! We need to try it again in October.
