IN all the many, many years that I have been going to Disney, I have somehow NEVER been evacuated on a ride, until this year. A couple years ago Test Track broke down while we were in the line, so we got those passes for another time, and we have gotten stopped a few times. most recently last year on Pirates and of course you ALWAYS get stuck at the end of Small World cause the unload/reload is slow. One time my friends got evaced off of Mission Space Orange cause of a protein spill, but it makes me lightheaded so I was waiting for them. So that doesn't count.

But this year we actually got EVACUATED on the Pooh ride. unfortunately we were LITERALLY the last group to take off before the evacuation, so we were in the first scene, right around the corner, like 10 feet into the ride. So we got evacuated last and only had like 10 feet to go.



I SO want to Space Mountain with the lights on. But no luck yet.

Bummer you weren't further in on Pooh ~ that would be a fun one to walk back through. I'd love to ride Space Mountain with the lights on too :D

I know, it was a bummer about the Pooh ride.

The Pooh ride seems to be the bad luck charm for us when it comes to Disney trips.

Last year when we were in line for the Pooh ride, my husband got some bad news about his mother. And then this year it broke down and we were evacuated.

But darn it, I just love Pooh (well, Tigger really) so much, I can't not ride it.

He may not want to ever ride it again.

Haunted Mansion several times (sadly never evac'ed tho lol) the worst is being stuck coming out of the attic b/c it hurts your neck, PeopleMover, SSE, Buzz, Pirates, Little Mermaid, and Star Tours.

That would be bad to be stuck coming out of the attic on the Haunted Mansion because it isn't very comfortable just for the time it takes to descend normally.
Buzz is a fun one to get stuck on because you can get more points! :lol:

ITA about Buzz. My son has maxed out his score getting stuck on Buzz and hitting the same target over and over. It feels a bit like cheating, but it's super fun.

We took a Trip to Disneyworld in August, we got stuck at the very end of Buzz Light-years Ride in Future land with Zerg for like 2 minutes. I hit his main target multiple times and got the max score of 999,999. My son was like WTH! What did I keep hitting to get that score? I told him it will always remain a secret. AWESOME TIME!
