Definitely got stuck on Haunted Mansion on my last trip there. We were just about to go into the ballroom part too! we got to listen to madame leota's part a bit longer than usual though so that was cool.
That's where I've been stuck! ...and tail of a rat... ...by ringing a bell... over and over and over

We got stuck on CoP for the first time ever on our last trip! It was terrible! We were on there for 50 mins. and stuck in between scenes sometimes repeating scenes twice and the Cast Memeber kept yelling into the mic. to keep seated! We were happy to exit CoP that time. I never thought I'd hear myself say that!!! :mickey:

We got stuck on Roger Rabbit in Toon Town, they had to walk everyone off of the ride. I think I shall avoid that one from now on, lol :) - blue

Pirates of the Caribbean - in the burning village
Its a Small World - by the belly dancers
Haunted Mansion - in the hallway with the floating candle stick
Splash Mountain - multiple places

Got stuck on Pirates of the Caribbean in 2007, early in the ride right before the "drop". Normally, you're in complete darkness, but the ride was down long enough that they actually turned the lights on. The drop is a lot steeper than I imagined.

I suppose I've been very lucky. The only ride I've ever been stuck on in 10 trips was Test Track. They'd had problems with it all day, finally got it running, and then it stopped twice while we were in the ride due to malfunctions. One was right before the scene where you look like you're going to crash through the wall but instead blast outside. That was painful! That car slammed on brakes. My neck hurt for almost a year thanks to that.

When I was a kid I was the Haunted Mansion with my grandfather. We were stuck at the point where you ride past a mirror and see a ghost with you in your doombuggy in the reflection. It was very loud and my grandfather couldn't hear anything I was saying. I was antsy and bored. I'm not sure how long we were in there. When you are a kid everything seems like an eternity.

Even though we've had annual passes for a good portion of my life, we've only gotten stuck once. It was on Splash Mountain as we were going up the main drop. If we're only getting stuck once, that's a good place to do it. It was pretty cool getting to walk down from the very top of the attraction. :wink:

Not technically a break down, but I rode Storybookland and about half-way through the guide fell off the boat and into the water in the canal. I felt so bad for her. It was cold that day and she wearing a very heavy coat and was soaking wet.

I'm not sure how she fell off the boat - I think she just slipped. I didn't see what happened until after she fell in the water. She said that this has happened to other cast members on that ride. The good thing is that she wasn't hurt.

Spaceship Earth twice and Haunted Mansion twice. HM was creepy, because the first time, we were stuck at that long corridor with the floating candelabra. :shock:

I was stuck on Toy Story Mania for about 40 minutes, just after the last screen. They kept apologising and asking Rex 'to reinsert the batteries'. After 30 minutes I was beginning to lose the will to live and couldn't help calling out 'Would someone take the bloody batteries away from Rex!'

It made the people in earshot giggle. I can't complain really that was the third time in 45 minutes I'd rode it.
