100 Things to Do #73 & #72 ~ Expedition Everest & Dumbo

Focused on the Magic
Today for the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by Deb at Focused on the Magic, I am sharing #73 & #72 in our countdown series 100 Things to Do in Disney

#73 Expedition Everest in Disney's Animal Kingdom ~ This is definitely Pierre's pick for the countdown.  Hopefully one day I will be brave enough to try it out!

#72 Dumbo the Flying Elephant ~ This picture is Joey, Hayley and Pierre's first ride on Dumbo.  Emily and I plan to have out first ride on Dumbo this year!  That's right, I have never ridden Dumbo! 

Make sure you head over to the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop and see everyone's great photos this week!

Dumbo has been a favorite for my kids since they were tiny. Everest my youngest son was not tall enough for on our last trip, but OH MY how he is looking forward to it this time!!

We leave in 10 days!!! :0)

You need to ride Expedition Everest! I couldn't stop giggling after I rode it. :)

I know stay away from coasters, but you GOTTA try Dumbo! Cman can't wait for "Dummo"! Each day before school he asks if we are going to Disney World to ride dummo or school. Then he cries when he learns it's school and not Disney World! said...

If you want it to be extra special...try and time your Dumbo ride with the fireworks. I did this by accident one night...and wow! Magical!!

Beautiful pic of EE!!!!

I'm with you about riding EE!!! Yikes!!

Lucinda is right - riding Dumbo at night during the fireworks would be an extra special first ride!!!

Here's an Everest story for you - on one of the times I rode it in June, I sat next to an Indian woman, her husband and son behind us, and the whole time she let out this super soft "eeeehhhh" maybe not polite to really scream? She cracked me up the WHOLE time and admitted it was her first ride.. at the end she laughed and said "well, that wasn't so bad"

I hope you ride it!!

I can honestly say I have no idea why I have never ridden Dumbo. It is a must do for me, and Emily refused last time but has talked a lot about trying it out this fall. It will be nice to experience something for the first time with one of my kids. Now Emily just has to follow through and ride with me! LOL!

EE scares the pants off me from afar, but if there is one attraction I really, really want to see it is this. Now to get over my fear! :-)
