This week we wanted to stick with the Halloween/Spooky theme on Up the Waterfall. However, we may have gotten more than we bargained for. We reached deep into our memory banks and discovered childhood traumas that we didn’t realize stuck with us for so long. In other words – the Scariest Rides at Disney parks!
I think many of us can relate to the rides we discuss, especially former classics like Snow White’s Scary Adventures, and certain sections of the Great Movie Ride, as well as of course – Alien Encounter. We somehow made it through our therapy session and are now ready to share it with you! I apparently totally mis-remembered the original Snow White’s Scary Adventures as having flat cut outs of the hag popping out to get me. The real thing looks to be much, much creepier. I guess my memories were self-preservation!

I’m half way through this show and I wanted to chime in and say that you and I are in agreement with parenting. My son was very afraid of loud noises when he was younger and my daughter was afraid of the haunted mansion. So when they were little my husband and I did ride swap on haunted mansion so our daughter didn’t Have to go (and our son got to go twice!) and we would typically leave magic kingdom before fireworks. They are both teenagers now so we can stay for fireworks but my daughter still doesn’t like the mansion. I never forced them to do Park thing they were terrified of but we always talked through what made them scared. Thank you for your interjection in the podcast. I found myself saying “me to mom!” Out loud as I listened in my car.

Thank you for saying that! It’s so sad to see that happening in the parks, glad I was not alone in that feeling! <3 Thanks as always for listening/watching too!
