Nap-worthy attractions

Post by Amy » Sep Sat 04, 2010 6:39 am

So, there has been much discussion as of late on which attractions almost invite you to take a nap while "enjoying" them. So, with a hat tip to elizabethswann, what attactions do you think are a great place to grab 40 winks?

My nomination goes to one that I have never slept through (actually I've never had a nap in an attraction!) but my Mom certainly enjoys a good 20+ minute nap at least once every time we visit.
The American Adventure in EPCOT
She says it is dark, cool, and the seats are just too comfy! In fact she confessed that one of the times we were doing our own thing she went to "see" the show so she could grab a quick rest :lol:

HALL OF PRESIDENTS!!!!! I wish i had a mattress for that one!! I love history and all, but after being so active all day, then walking into that....well, you may as well give me Nyquil!

I used to say Spaceship Earth, but now that I have gotten older and can appreciate the attraction a more, I've removed that one from my list.

Right now I have the Seas with Nemo and Friends on my list. That one is great for a good 5 minute nap.

I enjoy the "ELLEN" ride, but it's a great place to get a power nap.

I'd have to agree about the UOE ride with Ellen. Although the wooden benches are hard, at least I can get one all to myself and stretch out, using my backpack for a pillow. Works every time. I get some funny dreams with that one, though.... :shock: :lol:

Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage for sure although you might get a little bit of an aching back from the angle you're napping, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, Pirates of the Caribbean (hey, as much as I love the ride, the ride being dark is perfect to help one fall asleep), DLR train though when it jerks you a bit, it might not be good.

Hey, after a long day of wandering around in the heat and being squished within the crowds, you'd nap!

At least anything slow moving would be nap worthy.

I'm one of those people who can't fall asleep sitting up unless I'm, say, traveling and in a passenger seat of the car. That said, even I felt like I was going to nod off on Ellen's Energy Adventure. If I had had some ear plugs with me to drown out the racket, I might have conked out. And I like Ellen, haha! :lol:

I can fall asleep anywhere. Baloo sometimes gets upset with me because if a movie doesn't hold my attention, I go to sleep. She chooses wisely the movies we go to see. She doesn't like to pay $7 so I can take a 2 hour nap.
