    We are going to Disney World in jan 2010 and my sister loves Goofy. It would be amazing if she could ride Goofy's barn stormer with Goofy. Is this possible?

    Hi Grant,

    It would be amazing to ride the Barnstormer with Goofy, and it does happen.  Although, in all honesty, I have to say that there are many people hoping for the same experience, so don't get your hopes up.

    Your best bet is to be one of the first people in line for the attraction when it opens.  If Goofy is walking by at the time, he will often ride with one guest.  Wearing some sort of Goofy clothing, like a hat may also help get you a little extra attention.  Again, keep in mind that it's one of those random, rare events that will make someone's vacation extra-magical.

    I would also suggest taking your sister to a character meal at either Chef Mickey's or Cape May Cafe at the Beach Club.  This way she'll get a little extra one on one time with her favorite character.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation and good luck!
