So. I'm an asthmatic, and have been since I was a teenager. I'm an APer so I am at Disney on a regular basis, and up until tonight, I've never had an asthma attack at the park. I pace myself and take my medicine, and all is well. Two of my favorite rides are the Haunted Mansion and Pirates, and I go on them every time I'm at the park.
Tonight, a friend and I went on Pirates. We've noticed that it's been foggier since it was refurbed last year, but tonight the fog was exceptionally thick. We then went to the Haunted Mansion...and then we needed to go to First Aid because my lungs were on the verge of imploding. We tried to go through all the things that could have triggered the attack, and all we could come up with was the fog + the cold, muggy night.
The First Aid nurses were amazing, and made sure that I was taken care of. They allowed my friend to come back and sit with me while I was on my cot, waiting for my lungs to settle down. I was treated so well. I wrote a compliment about them (the nurses, not my lungs).
I'm flummoxed by tonight's asthma attack, though. Have any other asthmatics been having trouble with those two rides lately?
And if you're not asthmatic but you're in the know...is there any time to catch those rides when they cut the fog a little?
