As one of your readers pointed out, things in "Real-Life-Land" have been keeping me away from spending the time I would like to here!

All caught up now!



Sending you for your application for the Mom's Panel. Just being you is the best you could do! I'm really pulling for you!

to hear about the cancellation of Hunter's trip!

but for Lacey's pin and being able to join you for a little bit on your trip!


And now, back to Disney:

What pretty bonus pictures from F&G.

Figment is definitely not a must-do every year sort of attraction. I can't remember when they "refurbed" this ride, but did you ever get a chance to see the version with the Dream Finder? That version was really better IMHO.

We have never eaten at the Electric Umbrella. We just love Sunshine Seasons and the food in the World Showcase, so I don't think we will ever get there.

Your M:S update was HILARIOUS!!!

Great, and very authentic looking barf pictures!

Love Mama's reasons for not riding- she is a wise woman!!! As you may recall, on Ben and Mark's only ride on the orange side, Ben puked! 3 times! And like a 9 year old boy, he couldn't be prouder!

Thanks for giving me your take on Mission Space my friend. People have asked me if we confused the sides...NOPE, rode it twice two different trips, had the same experience. Got the warning cards, had me worried to pieces then...snooze....oh well, that is why I love Disney, so many options!!

Heck yeah, plans were made as soon as the 2014 rates came out. Two lovely weeks in Disney! May 24th through June 7th! Like you, I'm counting down the days until we are back!

I know how real life can creep up on our Dis time.

Sending you for your application for the Mom's Panel. Just being you is the best you could do! I'm really pulling for you!

Thank you! I'd love to make it onto the Panel.

to hear about the cancellation of Hunter's trip!

He was sooooo bummed!

but for Lacey's pin and being able to join you for a little bit on your trip!
They had initially planned on coming during the last part of our trip but with the pin, they'd save about $400. That's a lot for a young couple. Heck, that's a lot for anybody!

And now, back to Disney:

What pretty bonus pictures from F&G.

Figment is definitely not a must-do every year sort of attraction. I can't remember when they "refurbed" this ride, but did you ever get a chance to see the version with the Dream Finder? That version was really better IMHO.

I can't even remember the older version.

We have never eaten at the Electric Umbrella. We just love Sunshine Seasons and the food in the World Showcase, so I don't think we will ever get there.

Thank goodness, Disney has something for everybody 'cause we didn't care for Sunshine Seasons. I think it was because it was super busy and we felt rushed to order and couldn't find a seat.

Your M:S update was HILARIOUS!!!

Great, and very authentic looking barf pictures!

I had a couple more barfing pictures but decided that two were enough.

Love Mama's reasons for not riding- she is a wise woman!!! As you may recall, on Ben and Mark's only ride on the orange side, Ben puked! 3 times! And like a 9 year old boy, he couldn't be prouder!

I DO remember Ben puking and being proud of it too.

Oops, sorry! Didn't mean to make you feel all barfy.

Us semi-normal folks gotta stick together.

It's been a while since I rode Mission Space. DH doesn't like doing it with strangers and it's usually just us. Maybe next year, if his plans and dreams work and all his buddies (and associated families) can come down and help us celebrate our 10th anniversary (and the 20th anniversary of the first 'bachelor herd' trip he and his buddies went on.)
Yeah, we have had to share our cabin/rocketship with others before and it seems like you can't let loose and act all crazy and stuff.

Woo hoo! Anniversary trips are the best!

No Mission Space for me, anxiety and claustrophobia kick in big time. Best to sit out on the bench and be the official bag holder! Glad you didnt need the barf bag, but its always fun to watch peoples reactions around when you act like you may need it.
Glad to hear that you're still around. I was beginning to worry that I had offended someone with some of my silliness! Yay for a cruise! Where'd you go? What'd you do? What'd you eat? I wanna know!

There's no way that my Mama could get on Mission Space. She has a hard time with dressing rooms.

Up until this trip, I had only done the orange side. Lacey has a weird ticker (heart) and she's afraid to do the orange side anymore.

I don't care if you post something that's redundant so feel free to post any time that you'd like. I didn't feel much on the green side either (we did it later in the trip). The orange side is much better! Hopefully, you can try it out sometime.

I have at least a half dozen more pictures that are just of my legs or of just the word "NAVIGATOR" so I didn't do too terribly well.

I love your barfing pictures. They made me smile.
The first year that we went to Epcot, I felt like we had wasted our money. Of course, that was back in the day when I didn't know about the Disboards or guide books, etc.

If I were you, I'd do the green side and see how you feel. I'm betting that you'd be fine.

I can certainly see why some wouldn't like Mission Space. It can give you a really dizzy feeling.

Thanks for letting me know that you're still here and reading!

Back when the attraction first opened, there wasn't the green side option so all that we ever knew was the orange side. I guess once we realized that it didn't bother us, we never thought to try the green side.

Looks like you will be going right after me this spring!
Seeeeeee.....the outside posting world ain't so bad is it?

Yeah, I can see how the mom in the family would be left tending to the barfer. Just like a Mama is supposed to do.

I forgot to look at your ticker.....we're going to narrowly miss each other?

Good to see you again! Ya'll been doing okay?

There are to many things to comment on so I'll just say.....

I'm so sorry to hear about Hunter's school trip. I know that must have been hard to get all excited about it and then find out its off. At least he still get to go this year.

He was both angry and disappointed. He was looking forward to seeing Disney with his friends.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you to get on the Mom's Panel!

Thank you!

I've never done the orange side of MS because I know I would get sick. I have a very weak stomach. We did Dinosaur, Primeval Whirl, and Everest in a row and I didn't think I was gonna make it out of the park I think River would probably like it.

Oooh, I think you need to stick to the green side. Don't want to have to make use of the barf bags.

I'm going to try really hard to stay caught up now
I know that it's tough. I fall behind a lot!

I've done green team but the claustrophobia makes it hard! I've certainly never gotten photos on the ride, too busy reminding myself to breath.
You're the first person who caught the 1) B) iii). I can see why you'd forget to breath on Mission Space if you are claustrophobic. It's a tight place you're squeezed into.

Thank ya'll for letting me know that you're still around and reading. I worry sometimes that people thinking that my joking/kidding/picking around is too much. In this day and time, there's so much that we can get down in the dumps about and if I can put a smile on somebody's face, then by golly gosh darn it....I'm gonna try and do it!

I'm still here! Just caught up on the last couple updates.

I went on Mission space for the first time in our last trip in 2011. I really wanted to go the previous trip but DH wouldn't go. I went with my dad, my (now ex-) BIL and his dad. My dad and his dad and I went green. I kind of wanted to try orange but I was nervous, now that I did green I think I can handle Orange. I actually used to really like those carnival rides where you stick to the wall and I have heard that is what it is like.

In 2004, I was there with my DH and our friend, it hadn't been open that long (this is before they separated orange/green) and we chickened out because we couldn't get anyone to tell us what it did. This is before I knew about the DIS and Youtube.

[QUOTE=mickeystoontown;49970552]Glad to hear that you're still around. I was beginning to worry that I had offended someone with some of my silliness! Yay for a cruise! Where'd you go? What'd you do? What'd you eat? I wanna know!

There's no way that my Mama could get on Mission Space. She has a hard time with dressing rooms.

The cruise! Well we were supposed to be on the Magic going out on 10/20/13 but Disney called us on 10/17/13 and canceled because they didnt finish all of the dry dock rehab!!! <---- This is what I did at work.
Well because the friends that we were traveling with are more awesome than awesome (would that be awesomer or the awesomest?) found another cruise for all of us to catch 10/21. We went on the Norwegian Sky out of Miami to Grand Bahama, Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay. We had a great time, the crew was fantastic, the boat was small and not all blinged out but it was really nice!. The food, OMG!!, lobster, lamb, lobster, sea bass, those creamy powdered eggs on the buffet (yes I'm weird and love these), smoked salmon every morning with breakfast. They did poolside food everyday, Paella, grilled meat, tacos, nachos. There was food everywhere and it was all fantastic. We did the Ultimate Beverage Package which included alcohol and soda, it worked out well for us. Ahh poolside mojitos at 10 am, hey its vacation am allowed to do that right?! I'm not a huge fan of Nassau so I got off for a few minutes then went back to the empty pools. We were looking forward to going to Great Stirrup Cay but because the water was too rough we didnt get to go. They have to tender everyone in and it just wasnt safe so we had an at sea day. It was a great cruise we had a ball and would definately go again.

The best thing about it though is because Disney canceled the original cruise and in true Disney fashion they refunded all the money back AND gave us another 5 night Disney cruise free, yes thats right free!! So we rebooked back on the Magic with our awesomest friends for 12/4/13 which works out great because we get off the boat on her birthday!

I'm here too and loving every minute of your reports. I just tend towards lurking more than posting. I should post more since I'm writing a TR and love it when people comment on mine. I wouldn't worry though, I think you probably have a ton of lurkers like me. I just checked and your thread has had over 147,000 views!!
