    Well apparently I need to ride it so that I can dislike it properly. Of course, that means I'll probably end up loving it and wondering why I've been giving it a miss for years - and then they'll get rid of it :)

    If you do, do it at sunset. It sort of glistens. Very cool to experience.

    I like Astro Orbiter at night, if anything, it's serene and what a view!

    HA! Tony and I get on quite well because he's a t-totaler and, well, I'm not :wink:

    Well that, and apparently he owns Ghiradelli's.

    I like the dining plan - muhahahha!!! Bring it on :p

    Our last trip Marc made us ride the people mover 5 times and Spaceship Earth 3 times. I rolled my eyes and laughed, but deep down inside, I loved every minute of it!!

    The lines at Astro Orbiter are usually enough to turn me off. I think I've ridden it once.

    That's true, the elevator going up and the checks on each individual 'space ship' does make for a really inefficient loading process. I've only ever seen it twice with little/no queue - once was during a parade and the other was when it had just reopened after some maintenance work.

    As for me, I wish they would update Soarin'. There's as much to see here on the East Coast as there is on the west.. I love the ride, I just think the movie needs to be updated to things you'd see here.

    I don't enjoy the whole build a car thing on Test Track. I love the ride, just no desire to build a car...

    I don't do IaSW unless we are with grandkids. Song drives me bananas! Talk about ear worms...

    -Don't like Hoop de Doo
    -Don't like Illuminations (have seen it only twice in all of our visits)
    -Rode Astro-Orbiter for the 1st (and last time) in October as we were trying to do everything at least once.
    -Like the new Test Track better than the old, but still think it's an over-rated ride.
    -Would watch Fantasmic every night if I could. :)
