According to screamscape.com, over the past week Disney started opening the window of opportunity to ride Mission: Space a bit more.

The preview ride sessions have been expanded to include weekend days now and in the past few days, they have started to open the ride at 1 pm instead of 4 pm.

Theyve also heard a few stories about a third centerfuge being added to the mix as well, so the line can move even faster than before.

Yoo Hoo, TINY!

Think about it... If everyone was getting "urpy" during the ride, then why would only some people being hit with other people's "protein"?

No, only some of the people are reporting that they've gotten sick (far from everyone, by the way) and what has been found is that most of those who got sick didn't follow the directions to keep your head against the head rest and not to look towards the side.

Just goes to show ya, tell your friend not to believe everything they read on some other boards.
:smart:

hey rich,  i actualy heard about people getting let's say nauseous from a family that had just returned from wdw.  i'm sure that everyone has a different tolerance and opinion.  i thought it would be helpful to get a few other first-hand opinions.

Oh, I'm not disagreeing that people are getting sick to varying degrees on the new attraction -- just that I think it is easy to get the impression that the vast majority of people are getting sick on Mission: Space. And I'm not convinced that is the case (in fact, I think it is the opposite).

No offense intended and I agree with you that the first-hand reports are very helpful.

Oh man! I'm soooo psyched up now! I'm DYIN' to ride this one! Absolutely DYIN'! Will I MAKE IT til my next trip to WDW?!

Never mind the possibility of my getting sick on the ride... will I get sick WAITING for the ride? LOL

Thanks for all your info and everything Rich! Oh and check this out... I just looked at the link you provided for the ride's official website, and it has a vote question for "On your trip to the moon, which would you like as your in-flight movie?" Would you believe that one of the available choices is "Amazon Women On The Moon"? I'm not kidding about this! LOL


By the way, what the heck does the phrase "talk to the hand" mean, anyway? I've only heard it a couple of times before this thread.

"Talk to the hand" I believe comes from a fairly recent movie which I haven't seen. It basically means "I'm not listening to you, so talk to my hand (which of course doesn't have any ears, so you're wasting your time continuing to talk)."

:talktohand:

But even though the above MickEmoticon is named "talktohand" I think it also looks like someone who good-naturedly is saying "Stop, please, you're too kind."

So, use it with either meaning you like. :)

Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

Getting back to Mission: Space in this thread, I just heard great news!

Disney has just announced that starting August 10th Mission: Space will be open during Epcot's operating hours giving Guests previews of this ride which still officially opens in October and still has its announced "Soft Opening" on August 15th.

I think that's A-OK!
:wwww:

I wonder if WDW/Epcot have created any special toys and stuff to mark the Mission: Space occasion? I would assume they would. :nod:

Buzz Aldrin travels to Mars aboard Mission: Space at Epcot

Legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin who walked on the moon during Apollo 11 with Neil Armstrong is the inspiration for the "Buzz" in Buzz Lightyear




Legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin took the controls aboard Mission: SPACE on July 28, 2003, at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., during the filming of an ABC television segment that features the new Epcot thrill attraction.

Aldrin was joined by actors (L-R): Dhalyn Adams and Tyler Kremer. Aldrin was the lunar module pilot aboard the Apollo 11 mission that landed on the moon July 20, 1969. Mission: SPACE, which opens Aug. 15, 2003, will take Epcot guests on a pulse-racing ride to Mars.

Aldrin's television segment will be shown Aug. 15, 2003, on ABC-TV during the network's airing of the feature film "Mission to Mars."
