Take a virtual audio trip in this installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, brought to you in immersive spatial sound, experiencing another magical memory from Walt Disney World. In today’s memory, you will join my family as we pilot a rocket ship high above Tomorrowland.
Well hello and welcome to the WDW-Memories Podcast where together we relive that Walt Disney World Magic. My name is Lou and I’ll once again be your host on this magical adventure.
We are about 80 days from our Trip to Walt Disney World and less than 10 days from the kick-off of the 50th Anniversary Celebration. I can’t wait to get down there. I’ve been watching people in the parks this week, sharing how beautiful it looks as it’s getting ready for the festivities, and it’s going to be magical. The best part is, I’ll have loads of new memories to share with you, but for now, let’s continue our night in the Magic Kingdom.
I will admit, this was my first time on Astro Orbiter. The lines always seemed so long, and it was “just another Dumbo ride” in my mind. Folks, it’s not. The views as your rocket circles Tomorrowland are amazing, especially at night. And it is faster than Dumbo, so there is a bit of a thrill aspect as well. I have a feeling we’ll have to make this attraction, one we will come back to often, especially at night if possible.
For today’s memory, we are continuing our second day in the parks on our trip in September of 2016. If you remember from Memory 262, we got to ride Peter Pan’s Flight and were trying to figure out what to do next. The crowds were lighter, so we stopped by Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, but the wait was just too much, so we decided to hop over to Tomorrowland and see about a couple of new rides for the kids. We are working on maybe getting them to try Space Mountain, but figure we’d ride Astro Orbiter first. Everyone is pretty tired after a long day already, and we may not make it. The line moves quickly enough, and soon we’re on the elevator up to the top of Rocket Tower Plaza for our ride. Once our rocket comes to a stop, we exit the tower and look to see if we have time for one more adventure.
Today’s memory is in binaural once again, so I’d suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now that you have your headphones on, let’s join my family as we enjoy a new adventure soaring high above Tomorrowland.
