That, my dear, is because LOVE is gross! LOL I'm not much of a traditional love story person myself. Just the fact that romantic comedies are now called "romcoms" makes me want to vomit. lol
And you must ride Alice the next time you are in DL....I think it's very cute. I'm not a huge Fantasyland person, really, but there are a few rides that I MUST do. No matter how crazy it has made us, we always do Small World. And I love Peter Pan--I just wish they had Fast Pass in DL like they do in WDW. I'm not waiting an hour for any ride...well, maybe, other than Indy.
I'm glad to hear the the Mexico ride got updated. lol I never did like it very much, and yet, I'd still ride it. And then, i'd get the song stuck in my head! lol I LOVE Emperor's New Groove--one of my favorite movies. I think I may need to turn that on.
I've been on both spinning rides at DL--but anymore, I skip the tea cups. They make me want to barf. And on Roger Rabbit, I had to try to hold my car "straight" because, again, it would make me barf. The first time I took my son to DL, he wasn't even 4, and he was tired of all of the "dark" rides, so when we got in line for Roger Rabbit, he asked if it was in the dark and I lied and said no. lol He was so mad at me, and for several years afterwards, would still bring it up!
Since my first trip to a Disney park was about 32 years ago, I have no idea what my first ride was. Here's a secret about myself--I didn't go on the Haunted Mansion until I was about 12. Just the idea of it scared the poop out of me. Someone had to sit out the ride with me every time we went. Now, you couldn't keep me off of it! lol
I don't know if any of you heard about this, but back in September, when my family was in DL, Pluto got hit in the crotch by some crappy kid, and then Pluto chased him around the front part of Main Street. Does anyone know what happened to Pluto? I sure hope he didn't get fired. If that had been my son, he would have spent the rest of our vacation in some serious crap and certainly not in the park. I used it as an example to my 12 year old of how NOT to act. As kids, we were always told to say "thank you" to the characters for their time (and not punch them in the crotch lol), and it's just carried over into adulthood.
I swear...I am SO JEALOUS of all of you who get to be in any of the parks whenever you want to be. I was watching the Modern Marvels thing on WDW and I was getting teared up when they showed clips of Walt Disney talking about his dream. I like to think that he's watching us from somewhere knowing how happy he's made so many people.
How old were you when you first fell in love with Disney?
Well, I was 18 months old the first time my parents took me. I swear, my dad could sell someone on taking a newborn--he STRONGLY believes that a child can never be too young. So what if they won't remember! lol Probably my first memory of going was when I was 5. We used to live in Fresno, and the morning of my birthday, my parents just piled us in the car and said we were going somewhere and it was a surprise. Guess where we ended up? lol We were very lucky as kids--my parents wouldn't buy us $50 Guess jeans, but we got to go to either DL or WDW every year. I woudn't change that for all of the guess jeans in the world. lol
One of my favorite trips was when I was in WDW when I was pregnant with my son---I was only 5 1/2 months along and there was no way I was staying off of the rides. The first thing we went to go on was Tower of Terror and my dad looked at the "rules" and said I should go. I told him that i didn't fly all that way to do nothing--and went on. On the drop, I could feel the baby fluttering all over the place. LOL
