    Re: Bringing your own music on the rides

    I can't do it and don't want to. It takes me out of the experience. I cannot imagine per say listening to anything BUT Grim Grinning Ghosts on Mansion. If I did play my own music, then Space mountain might as well be just another coaster.

    I shake my head each time when i see it at dispatch when I am at Space. it CAN be a safety issue as I have seen a few times guys and girls getting their cords tangled in a safety restraint.

    ...As I see it

    Re: Bringing your own music on the rides

    I did this right after Michael Jackson died. I listened to the audio for Captain EO while watching Honey I Shrunk the audience. Then (for no good reason) I listened to "We Are Here to Change the World" on Space Mountain. Both experiences were enjoyable.

    This makes me think, Disney should sell "commentary tracks" featurng the imagineers (and maybe clips from Walt himself) so it's like having a DVD commentary but on the ride. That would be awesome. The only problem is you'd either have to get some serious noise cancelling headphones or turn it up REALLY loud.

    We'll put a pin in this idea and come back to it...

    You don't have to talk to interact with a seatmate.

    And the act of shunting your focus away from a companion by putting on those headphones is fundamentally an anti-social one... like as rude as checking one's phone while someone is speaking directly to you. You are in effect saying, "I'm going into my own world now."

    When the music is out on California Screamin' which happens quite a bit, I will play the Rockin' California Screamin' soundtrack through headphones.

    I have done this in the past. As for people who do this don't mind what other people do its their choice honestly how they want to enjoy the park IMO.

    I wouldn't presume to change an existing soundtrack, but I've always thought AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" would be a perfect accompaniment to Big Thunder Mountain RR.

    I've never tried that one, I'll have to do it next time. I have used Crazy Train on there and it was awesome.

    When you get on something like Space Mountain, your focus is no longer on your companion. Your focus is now on holding on for dear life. At that point, it is no longer rude.

    Now if the headphones didn't come off after the ride, that would be a different story.

    Re: Bringing your own music on the rides

    I really fail to understand how putting headphones on and not talking during a ride is any more rude or disruptive than talking during a ride. I find people talking during the rides to be far more annoying than someone listening to their own music. People who go on a ride to socialize are being disrespectful to those who actually want to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the ride as it was intended. Those who wear headphones so that only they can hear their own soundtrack are being mindful of others, non-disruptive, and if that's how they enjoy the ride I don't see how that should negatively impact anyone else.

    Wearing headphones off the rides, in lines, whatever... that I can see being antisocial. However, that is not the topic at hand.

    Re: Bringing your own music on the rides

    The thought has never once crossed my mind. I enjoy the rides as are, partially because of the music and sounds disney has already created to compliment the experience.

    I like to travel as light as I can. I don't want any more baggage no matter how little it is, to worry about it getting lost, stolen, damaged or wet.

    Oh man I have to try Crazy Train on Thunder Mountain. That sounds awesome.

    I always considered editing a song to fit the "format" of the Space Mountain or California Screamin' song, at which point you'd be able to press play at the same time and have a similar experience except with your own music. Never got around to it but it would be pretty simple.

    Yeah, someday I'll have to try to set that up for myself. There's a particular part of Narcissistic Cannibal that has about 45 seconds of really good turntable mixing going on that I'd love to time to the part where the ride is at it's fastest toward the end where it is going down, right, down, right, down, right, down, left, and then ends in the tunnel with the red lights, but I've never gotten around to it either.

    No, I only do it when I'm by myself. I'd say about 50% of my visits to the park are solo.

    Re: Bringing your own music on the rides

    I dislike seeing people in shopping malls or kids at dinner with their parents with their earbuds glued to their ears.

    Don't get me wrong, I LOVE music. There's a certain threshold I DO NOT pass.
