Hello Micechatters, this is my first post in this great forum and I am glad to finally be a member! Before I ask my question, I just want to say that this is the best resource for Disneyland info.
Well my first question is regarding space mountain. I will be going this July to Disneyland with my family and I am having a hard time convincing my mother to ride Space Mountain. She's into the more tamer rides and looking at the parades and shows but I know she'd like Space Mountain if she gave it another chance. She was tricked into riding it when she was a kid and now is somewhat traumatized. Does anyone have any advice into possibly convincing her into riding it? I think I might be able to convince her into riding Big Thunder Mountain, which I think isn't too difference in how it feels.
My second question is regarding scheduling in the evening. I am having a hard time deciding if I should eat dinner as I wait for the Fantasmic show - Watch Fantasmic at 9 - and stay for the fireworks. I have only seen the fireworks twice, and the last time I went I saw them at the hub and I loved it. So the question really is, how is the view from where I would be viewing Fantasmic? Is it worth waiting at the hub and then watching a later show of Fantasmic?
My last question is about character meetings. I go about once or twice a year, and I really don't have many pictures with characters. Where is the best place to see characters without wishing they had a fastpass just to take a photo?
Thank you so much in advance and keep an eye out for my video trip report of DL and DCA
