I like Disneyland much more than Disney World.

Disneyland Rocks, as does Disney's California Adventure, which is on the same property.
Anyone who is planning a trip there....pm me! I'll meet you there- we go quite a few times each month.

Hey Middie, when's the last time you went to Cedar Point? Last time I was there the Magnum was new! I think my favorite ride there is the Gemini because it was the only ride (then) where you actually went weightless for a few seconds going down the big hill. My all-time favorite has to be The Beast at King's Island, CLASSIC wooden roller coaster that will rattle your teeth! I think that one will always be on the World's Top Ten!

Oh and Buck, Space Mountain is alive and well, in fact, the ride just got completely refurbished. Nothing new was added, Disney just basically rebuilt the original ride.

The fine dining restaurant in the California Adventure side is pretty good. The restaurant inside of Pirates of the Carribean has a mean prime rib too.

I hate going to Disneyland in the summertime though because it's like a zoo. But the firework show is really nice.

As long as it's fast and furious, I'll ride it. I love the heights and the plummets and the dizzy going-around, can't breath because I'm in shock kind of stuff.

I HATE HATE HATE Ferris Wheels. They scare me to death. It moves way too slow. When it stops you rock back and forth and then you lurch a few feet more only to stop again. /shiver
