I’ve been fortunate enough to take a Disney World vacation these past few years and luckily this year I was able to go again.
First day we visited Hollywood studios and I gained a new coaster credit in Slinky Dog Dash. We rode Star Wars rise of the Resistance which is by far the most detailed and well themed ride I’ve ever been on, a must for Star Wars lovers! It combines a classic dark ride with a modern twist and really is beautifully done. Slinky Dog Dash was fun, had some decent airtime and goes decently fast, also got to ride Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway which is a trackless dark ride and quite fun too, although I’m not too big into Mickey.
Second day was Magic Kingdom which is by far my favorite park, got some good views of Tron Lightcycle run which looks to be an epic coaster that is already open for cast preview and we were able to see it up close and personal from the Peoplemover, Pirates of the Carribean, Haunted Mansion, and Space Mountain are my favorites so I had to ride them a lot, also got a ride on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Big Thunder Mountain which I like to refer to as Adventure Express South as it reminds me so much of Adventure. Didn’t get to ride Splash Mountain as it’s being redone right now for next year but overall got to ride all I wanted.
Last day was Epcot, only had a half day here and didn’t get to ride much but got to ride a few of my favorites such as Journey into Imagination with Figment and Spaceship Earth which is slow and boring but I love it. I rode Mission Space in the early afternoon right before I was supposed to ride the new Guardians of the Galaxy coaster, which I was pumped to ride, for those of you who don’t know Mission Space is a very intense space shuttle simulator/motion simulator attraction that puts you in control of a rocket ship whilst you fly your way to Mars, long story short this ride kicked my butt more then any coaster ever has as I got off sick as a dog. I then got in line for Guardians coaster and got through the whole pre show and got to the boarding area before doing something I’ve never done, wimping out due to a throbbing headache and nausea like you wouldn’t believe. I wasn’t able to ride it and that was the lone disappoint of an overall amazing trip!
