Once you pass Main Street, you can see the Astro Orbitor. You can never miss it. Michael never did. When we went passed Sleeping Beauty's castle (to grab a churro of course,) he would point in the direction of Tomorrowland, where we would divert our route and just watch the rockets spin for a few minutes. This was enough time for a group of guests to enjoy the ride. We always thought this was enough for Michael.
That was until a few months ago, when we passed by the Astro Orbitor and realized there was an incredibly short line. We decided on a whim to ride it.
And what fun we had.
You can imagine the tight fit, as my husband, Michael, and I crammed into one rocket. Although we felt like sardines squashed in a can, the feeling couldn't be compared to the joy we felt being together for the first time on the ride. It was those feelings of happiness where you can't even grab a camera because you're just having that much fun.
The next few times we've gone on the ride, we've taken turns riding with Michael. I can't tell you that it's gotten better from a "health" perspective. The ride makes me want to vomit really. I don't know if its the speed, the circles, the time of day we've gone on it (dusk), or even the chilly, cloudy weather but I end up really dizzy. I was never afraid of roller coasters either. My husband gets a horrible headache from the ride too.
