    Excellent Love the DSI Lou you know how to make a Monday much better. Cannot wait to hear it. Thanks for the magic.

  2. Eric B. Freeman says:

    I wonder Disney would create a fifth new theme park at Walt Disney World in the future someday. Maybe it would be themed to music.

    I encountered Space Mountain around the same time I got hooked on Star Wars in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. This gave me my interest in becoming an astronaut (didn’t quite make it there) which lead me to my computer science degree….then to the military…then to a career in technology. So to me, this ‘ride experience’ is more than just that. It was something that motivated me and got me interested in creating technology. Love it.

    As always, I loved the DSI on Park rides. Now I know why I had such motion sickness on the refurbed SM, it was darker. Ugh. My wife and I honeymooned at Disneyland Paris and raved about Space Mountain 2. She felt it was more like Rock and Rollercoaster in DHS. So my question is, any plans for a research trip to Disneyland Paris. My wife and I plan to take our kids there and on the Disney Mediterranean cruise at some point. Can Mousefan travel be used to book European trips? Please keep up the great work, I find listening to your show an absolute must part of my work week. Thanks, Glen

  5. Space Mountain is now my all time favorite attraction. The queue and the music is a touch of magic. The interactive games remind me of VMK when they discontinued at Main Street U.S.A, I’ve been waiting for this segment for a long time.

  6. Lisa says:

    My favorite MK rollercoaster is Thunder Mountain. Always will be!

  7. April says:

    Haven’t been able to ride Space Mountain since the refurbishment…my husband and I last time was for our 1st yr anniversary. We now have a 2 yr old so it has not been an option on our last few visits but maybe we can try this year for spring break. Also, totally off subject during this segment all I could think about was hearing your “co-anchor” breathing so heavily…lol

    Every time I ride it I see something new

  9. Chuck Zitta says:

    I think I have to agree with Ryan about favorite coaster in the MK (not including the other parks). There’s something about Big Thunder Mountain that holds a special place in my heart. Speaking of which, I have always dug anything related to Snow White and the Seven big guys, being it was Walt’s first full length animated feature. So the Mine Train, though it is on the newer side, is also up there in rankings for me.

    I think I almost enjoy Space Mountain more when cruising on the TTA than riding the actual attraction itself. Don’t know why? Might be the relaxing aspect of the experience.

    Thanks again for another fabulous show, Lou and Ryan!!!
