Come and join us for another installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, where I try to make it possible for you relive your Walt Disney World Memories when you can't actually be there.
As I woke up this morning, I realized “I’ve got to release a podcast in a couple of days”. And because I have only a couple of days to record the intro and edit down the audio, I didn’t get a chance to post on all the social media websites soliciting comments like normal. For that, I want to apologize to all of you. That said, today we’re actually revisiting a previous memory. Today we’re going to go back and re-ride Space Mountain.
Our request today came from Dan who wrote on the facebook page:
...How about the music as you walk through the Space Mountain Queue?Well Dan, I only have a little more of the audio from the queue that I haven’t already released. As I said, this is a revisit of an earlier memory. Back in 2008 we got to ride Big Thunder Mountain and Space Mountain in Memory 025 which was a memory from my 2006 trip. In 2009 Space Mountain was closed and refurbished, adding audio to the ride. So when we went back to the parks in 2010, I had to see the changes for myself.
So it’s September 2010. Traci, Susie, and I were joined by my dad and sister for a day at the parks. In the evening, I wanted to catch a ride on some of those refurbished attractions, so we split up for a couple of hours. My sister and I caught Space Mountain and the Haunted Mansion while Traci and my dad took Susie to Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor. We’ll be joining this memory as my sister and I are walking through Tomorrowland towards Space Mountain. We have fast passes from earlier in the day that we are going to use, so sorry Dan we don’t spend too much time in the tunnels area either, although the lines are short to begin with. You’ll hear us discussing briefly the Lines app by TouringPlans.com (no they are not a sponsor, but I can’t recommend them highly enough). We’ll only spend a second in tunnels because there is no line for either side. You’ll hear me explain to my sister some of the changes that have been done and what to expect. Realise though, all my knowledge is from reading blogs or listening to other podcasts, and this is my first time experiencing these changes too. We wait in the switchback area for a few minutes, and then it’s our turn.
