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 take the kids for their first trip aboard a rocket ship to another galaxy.
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 50 days from our Trip to Walt Disney World. I’m getting worried though because this is supposed to be a quiet time and all the dining reservations are booked already. Does that mean the parks are going to be packed after all? Who knows at this point. I guess we’ll have to wait and see as we get closer. But for now, let’s continue our night in the Magic Kingdom.
I was so excited to get the kids on Space Mountain. It is probably my favorite thrill ride in the Magic Kingdom and one that so many can’t wait to ride on when they walk through tapstiles. I’m not sure the random speakers improve things any, but at least they make things more interesting for us listening at home and reliving that memory of riding the attraction.
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 263, we just got to take our first ride on Astro Orbiter. As we leave the elevator, Traci and I convince the kids we should at least go see what Space Mountain is like, because it’s been hard for them to understand since neither one has had much experience with roller coasters at this point. We enter the queue and make the long walk through the tunnels to the main queue area. As we get near, we catch up with another family who has a little girl who is days apart from Susie in age, and she givers her the confidence to try the ride. As we approach our rockets, we split up and Mikey and I get the front car, and Traci and Susie get the back one. The ride is as thrilling as we remembered and the kids come off giddy with excitement. Then we begin the long return to Tomorrowland, and of course, a moving sidewalk is a ride that must be fully enjoyed by all 6-year-olds, so we stand the whole way back. Once back outside, we will begin the long walk towards the exit and the end of our time in the Magic Kingdom.
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 help the kids experience a new kind of thrill ride for the very first time.
