    DW and I got to ride in front last year. The first time we rode with our kids years ago was the most magical, especially as we climbed the hill to the Contemporary and then on the the MK.

    I've only been up front once, and can't really remember it. Must have been about 1993 or so.

    this is by far, thee best pilot I ever had the pleasure of meeting. I tried hard to be interesting with my questions, which I think I was.. I remember talking about speed limits and asked him what part of the track has his most favorite secenery? He said, "I don't know about all that, but on the other side of where we're at now (passing through CR), is my favorite because you gain the most speed on it's pitch than anywhere else"! I learned from there that a red light signals to the pilot that they're going too fast, and if they ignore it for too long, the train shuts down..

    so I basically worked hard for mine (while not trying to stink the cab too much like beer).. and you got it folks.. in case of emergency, I'm licensed to take the helm!

    I rode in the front twice this past trip...once on the express Monorail Silver to the TTC (nighttime) and once on the TTC to Epcot Monorail Gold (daytime). It was just before Epcot opened, and I wish I would have had my camera!

    Same is true with regular pilots. At the annual Sun-n-Fun convention we have an Air Margaritaville. To make a long story short, each night of the convention we had pilots tanking up--and it was not 100LL!

    I just used my co-pilot license as a bottle coaster! One more and I am done!
