  1. On all the rides where you might have problems, yes. As with fitting on DB, that depends, MF, and TTD have smaller waist size requirements due to their belts, and on Raptor and WT its the chest size that will cause you problems.
  2. Unless B&M changed their designs they should be the same (2 clicks.) To my knowledge they have stayed the same since Apollo's Chariot and Raging Bull.
  3. DINING PLAN DISNEY TRIP = DIET DEATH! Been there, done that WAY too many times! I swear I gained 15 pounds on my last Dining Disney Trip! RD Last time I went I actually stayed even. Im a Disney Commando and also the designated Fastpass runner (ie I get sent across the MK to get the Space Mt Fastpass in between riding BTMRR and the Haunted Mansion.) So we will see, I cant wait for the trip.
  4. Speaking from experience, DBack's seats are more forgiving then MF or TTD so if you plan on going to CP in a month I suggest working on that diet. Ive gained some weight from last year, and I essentially wore the same thing to opening day as I did to the haunt. I needed a little help from the ride ops both times so I hopefully gained in areas that will not affect my ability to ride any rides at CP. However, a Dining Plan Disney trip occurs between now and then so we will see.
  5. Way too Much TV is surprisingly quite humorous. Be sure to be looking at the bar during the Flipper section, what you will see caused me to openly laugh.
  6. Im a back seat person, but if Im presented with a line for the front seat wait that is as long as other rows of most coasters (some I only sit in the back) Ill go there (which rarely happens, the day has to be pretty dead.) That said there are some select coasters that Im willing to wait longer for the front row on occasion: -Alpengeist -Montu -The Beast -Millennium Force -Top Thrill Dragster -The Voyage -Dueling Dragons
  7. Ill be leaving WDW the day you are arriving. My suggestions: -Look into a Disney Guide Book, I personally like the Unofficial Guide because they have Tour Plans that you as a Disney novice will be quite helpful in helping you plan your day. -Do not miss any of the park's night shows (Wishes and Spectromagic at the MK, Illuminations at Epcot, Fantasmic! at DHS) some of them (Spectro, Fantasmic!) do not happen every day, plan your days so that you see them at least once. My family's rule is that we never have a night on the property where we do not see one of them. -Stay on property, it truely makes the vacation feel special, it feels like you leave the "real world." Also a park is open for ERT (or as Disney calls it EMH, extra magic hours) one hour in the morning and three hours at night every day. -You are there during the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot, be sure to check that out -Just to give you an idea, here is our schedule: -Day 1: Arrival day, check in and spend the afternoon/evening at DHS which is showing Fantasmic that night. -Day 2: Blizzard Beach in the morning/Magic Kingdom in the afternoon-evening (Spectro is running that night, Evening EMH) -Day 3: Animal Kingdom in the morning (EMH,) Typhoon Lagoon in the afternoon, and the Magic Kingdom in the evening (we will likely simply see Spectro and Wishes and not even ride any ride as we have a reservation at Ohana before this) -Day 4: Epcot all day (morning EMH) -Day 5: DHS all day (Fantasmic showing) -Day 6: Magic Kingdom all day(morning EMH, Spectro showing) -Day 7: Epcot all day (evening EMH)
  8. You do realize that this one does not actually cause you to go upside down right? Think of this loop as Mantis' inclined loop. Also, Noah's Ark has an excellent safety record, I highly doubt they would put this in if it was not deemed safe.
  9. Drop Zone, Mt. Olympus is not getting the looping waterslide, Noah's Ark is. Which is good, because Noah's is a better park in general anyways (and has much more slides and a larger waterpark) then Mt. Olympus.
  10. and here I go and delete one thinking I had six (hiding head in shame) -Wishes Although if we were to expand it to night shows with fireworks Fantasmic would be #5.
  11. I dont know about best, but it beats the pants off of CP's nightly show. Top 5 firework shows Ive ever seen: -Boston's 4th of July Firework show -Magic Kingdom's 4th of July show -1995 Green Bay 4th of July show (@ Lambeau Field) -Illuminations
  12. There is only one ride that made me feel horrible (not sick just close to passing out) and that was for some reason a Pirate ship back when I was 7. Since then havent ridden another of its type. I can and have gotten on "spin and pukes" and every manor of coasters after a huge meal and nothing has phased me. No ride has made me want to throw up yet. The only thing Ive had comperable was that Pirate ride experience and the near black outs Ive gotten after multiple rides on one coaster (without getting off) before I realized the value of drinking lots of water when at a park, especially on a hot day. I can also read in a car, but dont expect me to sleep in one or a plane for that matter. I have to be really tired to do that.
  13. I highly doubt the shows will stop, because without the shows Sea World is at the very best a half day park.
  14. Thanks to my 4 years of living near CP, I can now say that the ride Ive ridden the most is defiantly the one and only Magnum XL 200. Ive visited the park at least once every year since 1999 and ridden that ride multiple, mulitple times a visit. Sometime in the past 4 years it passed Canobie Lake's Yankee Cannonball (my first coaster at age 2 and my favorite coaster at my home park for 8 years.) Other rides lurking up near the top of my list are MF, BBW, and Lockness Monster.
