I've been fairly lucky- I've not experienced any breakdowns, just the usual slowing for those needing extra assistance.
Although, from reading the reports, I've only seen Expedition Everest in B-Mode! Must get back and see it properly.
At RRC, our super-stretch limo was delayed but the music had already started- by the time the limo actually took off, the music had ended and I had a silent ride. It was odd to fly through the dark in silence.
In 2007 me and my family were going to go on the Great Movie Ride before Hollywood Studios closed. So when we got the the movie where it is in a bad part of town ( i forgot what it was called) we got stuck.We were stuck for like 30 minutes./the only thing I remember is a lot of cast members coming out a hallway by the doors to get to the next movie. I sadly fall asleep to see what they did =(
Then in 2008 when my mom and dad went they got stuck on RRC. They have pictures on there computer. The lights turned on and they had to be taking off the ride. In the pictures there are all these boxes by the track.It kind of ruined "the magic"
Last: Almost every time we ride Spaceship Earth we get stuck on the first hill thing and then when we get to the part where I think a mother is talking to her daughter on the computer or something like that.

I want to see what it's like with Rockin' RC with lights on...
Not going to Disney World any time soon...
i've only been stuck on the HM, and backed up on the boat dark rides.
There are a few places that i'd hate to be stuck. Near the Carnatourus in Dinosaur, the alien scene in the great movie ride, and on the universe of energy dinosaur scene. I'd start screaming if the ride did not stop the sounds and turn the lights on, etc.
What happens if POTC breaks down near the big ship/fort with all that water around? What happens if splash mountain breaks down right after you go down the big drop?
What if the Jungle Cruise Breaks Down? Can It?
Just wondering.... would you have to like swim to the shore? lol
Also, there was mention of a person who got stuck at the beginning of R'n'R with the lights on, etc., and he couldn't reach his camera, I'd have probably made some smart comment to the CMs there about how they needed photopass people for when the ride breaks down. LOL

The Golden age never was the present age… but with human liberty we can fulfill the promise and meaning of America. To everyone a chance. To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!

Are you 23? I am!
For those that remember World Of Motion- when I was a kid I got stuck at the part in the ride where the men are proposing ideas, for what would become the wheel, to the king. As you may remember at the front of the line was the man with the round wheel concept, apparently the idea of the wheel being round struck the king as being rather funny because in that scene he was lauging loudly and obnoxiously as one could. I was listening to him laugh for 45 minutes before the ride started again and to this day I can still here him laughing haha
I have been stuck on several rides and I think it is my favorite part of Disney. Space Mountain was the worse. We got stuck just before you enter the tunnel at the beginning of the ride and I am a tall person who was stuck in the middle seat. I wanted to scream when I was finally able to stand up. My legs were so cramped. But later that day we rode the TTA and we saw the whole coaster with the lights on!!! It was amazing...
I also used to be really afraid of getting stuck backwards on SE and HM becasue I was afraid of going flying backwards if the brakes were ever released....I think my older brother had something to do with that.
Also on TM I really got to see parts of the park that you ordinarily wouldn't see becasue we got stuck on the top of one of the hills...It was great sitting up there watching people in the park and seeing Tom SAwyer's Island...What a great view...heehee.
If you can Dream it, the you can do it!
My only hope is that we never lose sight of one thing, that it was all started by a mouse
Disney 2009 Part Two: 3 months 15 days.... Cannot wait!!

I have gotten stuck on both on that going backwards part. Mostly HM thou, lots of times to study the little facts that go by to fast to see other wise.
Faith is my name, disney is my...obsession
Since Pluto is no longer a planet. I think Mickey should be the new one.
Worst time at Disney World was the 45 minutes we were stuck on Pirates. Never got the lights turned on but boy did it **** sitting there looking at the same thing over and over. Thankfully after 15 minutes or so they turned off the sound so we didn't have the sounds etched in our brain.
I learned about a secret when stuck on "It's a Small World". My boat was in front of the South Pacific area and it stopped. Apparently the figures aren't mechanical dolls. When we got stuck it must have been right at the shift change because the "dolls" started to move away from their scenes. They started stretching and running in place as if to improve their circulation and then a tiny door popped open in the ocean background and the figures all walked through it. About 2 minutes later identically dressed characters came through the door and took the places of the ones who left. That's when the ride resumed. After our boat docked I asked a cast member about what I saw and she seemed very nervous. Her eyes darted back and forth and she just repeated, "Have a magical day, sir". I later learned that the "dolls" are really little people. To this day I haven't been on IASW for fear of reprisals.
