    we've got a plan to try and do everything in 14 days doesnt everyone :lol: but are there any rides you've tried which you would just never do again? perhaps theyre boring, slow, rickety or whatever

    ooooooh! An interesting question!

    Personally there is no ride I would avoid.......however, mission space is one of the best ride but it is not for everyone.

    My advice is go to the green ride first before going to the orange ride.....

    I did and I was glad that I went to the green ride first as it is much less G Force so it was a good 'prep' for the orange!

    :yes:

    Well, the ones I won't do again are probably some of the most exciting! :lol:

    I don't like Tower of Terror. :lipwobble: Aptly named. It's the repeated dropping sensation (which is of course, the point of the ride!) that gets me.

    Haven't ever been on Rockin' Roller Coaster.

    Oh, that space orbiter thing in MK? Waited ages once to take a little relative on that one. Even HE declared it "boring" and not worth the wait. :sigh:

    Wasn't a huge fan of Expedition Everest. :sorry:

    So you can see, I LIKE the boring ones! :D That's the beauty of Disney, eh? Something for everyone, regardless of personal preference!

    The only ride that I would put in the NEVER category is Star Tours or whatever it is called and is being remodeled. It made me sick.

    Rides that I don't do, at least very often, include that Astro Orbiter. Normally too long of a line for not that great of a ride (IMHO), Stitch's Great Adventure, and the Teacups. I normally don't do RnR unless someone that is with me wishes to as it bothers my neck.

    That is a very very difficult question as everyone like different things - personally I would start at the beginning and get everyone in your party to go through each of the parks, and each of the individiual lands in the parks and write down what they absolutely , definitely want to do

    Make sure you do all these first as an absolute priority - twice or more if you want - everything else is just extra gloss on the holiday - there is nothing that I would really avoid - a lot for me would be queue dependant but if there were no queues I'd do it all

    I was so sick from Body Wars and Star Tours. I thought I was going to freak out in that little pod thingy.

    It was in the Wonders of Life Pavillion at Epcot - it has been closed for years now :sigh: - its next to the Universe of Energy - you probably haven't noticed it its tucked away

    I agree Body wars was awful

    Jeff, it's a great idea...travel through the body, see the inside. :D Sounds cool, right. But once you were in the pod, moving around and then also watching things moving around, it became too much for me.

    The one I really wouldn't bother with again is Stitch's Great Escape - the old Alien Encounter terrified me so I put off Stitch until last year - it doesn't really do anything at all, the effects only seem to work in a certain area and even then they aren't that great - shame because I love Stitch :sigh:
