Going to Disney World!



  • Paulgla - Mission Space is still pretty intense. My son and I just about hurled after the "More Intense" version of the ride. I recommend everyone try the "Less Intense" until you know how your stomach will handle it.

    Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom put a hurtin' on me. It is a bit jerky. I used a TENS unit the entire time I was there which helped, but since I walked all the parks, my back was still "done" at the end of each day.

    I got one of the passes Angie spoke about that allows you to enter a different way in order to be more comfortable. But, we were just there two weeks ago and the longest we had to wait was 10 minutes for any ride, so I didn't have to use it. My kids wanted me to so they could jump the line, but I had to explain the difference between right and wrong...again.

  • Just a comment for anyone traveling and filling scripts, don't know how it is for Florida. In Illinois, ONLY a doc, not a PA or NP, can write for things like oxycontin. So, while I can bring in a script from another state written by a doc for that med, if written by a mid-level provider, forget it.

  • My all time favorite coaster is the Incredible Hulk in Universal or what ever they call it now.
    I once rode it FOUR times in a row!

    I was at the Disney this year between my trial and permanent SCS placement this spring. PM would probably frown on me abusing myself that way again now.

    Kind of on/off topic, but I find it very frustrating to have a small section of "good" days, only to wake one day and feel like a semi has rolled over you, they scraped you of the road and tossed the remains in a trash barrel and you have to crawl out....so, be careful down there :D
  • I absolutely LOVE roller coasters. I have never been to disney but have always wanted to go. I thought that was now a pipe dream with all of my back issues but after reading this I am wondering if there may be a way that I could do it. I hope that you have a great time. You certainly deserve it with some of the things you have been through recently. Be sure to tell us all about it when you get back.
  • ride is Dinosour in Animal Kingdom, but there is no way I can do it now. Last time I rode it was when my back first started to get really bad and after the ride started, I thought, what am I doing???? I still loved it!
