Ya I still shrug my shoulders up so I get a little extra room. Even momentary pressure I don't like lol without pushing back. I don't like the weight just sitting there.

Be careful, I don't think the space in the "cockpit" is any bigger. It's just a tamer ride.

Yeah, I was going to mention the same thing ~ if your primary concern is claustrophobia, you might still have some problems on the tame side.

I've been on stitch's great escape and didn't like same with Astor orbiter.I've never been on mission space and probably never will go on it lol same with kali river rapids just because I don't want to get soaked! Lol! But I love all the other rides and attractions.

This is a tough one. I ride most of the attractions/rides but, if I had to pick one that I would skip or not ride, it would be Tower of Terror. Between how dark it is, and how high you go up just scares me. :mickey:

There are a few on my list....

-Stitch's Great Escape FREAKS ME OUT and I really don't feel is fun or something fun for kids! They need something new there!
-In my old age, I've become more and more claustrophobic, therefore thinking about riding Mission:Space does not sound fun. I'm sure I'll get on it again someday but not any time soon.
-Definitely Kali River Rapids is a tough one. The one time I went on it I got SOAKED and was freezing and had to buy sweatpants to walk around the parks in because i didn't want to waste time going back to the hotel to change.

But....never say never!

There aren't any that I won't ride. There are some (Aladdin's carpets, Tomorrowland Speedway, Universe of Energy) that I don't mind missing. But if someone in my group, especially one of the kids, wants to ride something I gladly go on it!

Now the must dos (credit to Stacey)....that's a different thread!

MK-I won't ride Astro Orbitor (It's just another Dumbo and Flying Carpet to me just higher, blah),

EPCOT-Won't ride Mission Space, we rode it early in it's life and my wife wasn't feeling too hot after, and it didn't impress me that much. And I can't stand The Journey Into Imagination ride or whatever it's called these days. Which is a shame 'cause I think Figment is awesome.

AK-I won't ride Dinosaur just because it was really boring to me. You get shaken in the dark a lot, then theres a flash of light and look a Dinosaur, then darkness again, some lights, flash a dinosaur and then its over.

HS-I wouldn't ride The Backlot tour because I'm a huge movie buff and it broke my heart to see the way stuff just got thrown back there like a junkyard and rusted away. Now that it's gone I sometimes wont ride Toy Story Mania because the line is atrocious.

I just got back from WDW on Sunday and almost got talked onto Space Mountain -- next time I am going to try it. BUT Splash Mountain I will never ride again --years ago I did it once and was terrified, went back the next day thinking it would be easier -- the suspense of waiting for that drop almost gave me a heart attack. I am afraid of heights and that drop at the end is too much. :-) Too bad b/c I like the whol Brer Rabbit thing.

The suspense is usually much worse than the actual experience for sure ~ just goes to show how good Disney is at setting the mood with theme and surroundings!

Well, the Swan Boats aren't that fun anymore, since you have to swim through the ride yourself. And then the cast members get all upset at you...
