    Okay, I admit I'm a chicken. I love Space Mountain but have no desire to get on Rock n Rollercoaster or TOT. Please give me an honest opinion of Expedition Everest. How does it compare to SM? Thanks.

    Ok Laurie the Grandmother of the group will tackle this question! 

    First of all I will NOT ride a roller coaster anywhere else except at Disney.  I do not love the dips and circles one bit.  With that said I continually ride all that Disney offers whether its Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Expedition Everest, Rock n Roller Coaster, or Tower of Terror.  The hardest one for me to ride in fact is Space Mountain!  My favorite is Rock n Roller Coaster!  I honestly don't mind this one as you are so secure in your seat that you don't move no matter what dip you take and it was my first time ever going upside down!  I didn't realize it did that and my family had to inform me!

    I honestly believe that if you enjoy Space Mountain you will LOVE Expedition Everest.  They are similar in many ways as far as the ride that you will experience.  You are enjoying this attraction in  daylight while you are in the dark for Space Mountain and of course they have different themes.  But without giving away what happens it is not going to be much different from the thrills of your favorite coaster at Disney.

    Maybe someday in the future you will even try the Rock n Roller Coaster!
