Great ride on the Anniversary on 10/15/2006
We spent Thanksgiving 2005 at Disneyland and DCA. Very crowded but still fun. Space mountain was a blast. The ride and accompanying music was addictive; we rode at least 3 times. Lots of twists and turns in a dark setting. Park staff did a good job with the long lines on record-attendance days. Take care with young kids as little legs get tired quickly. Make good use of FastPass to minimize the waits. One caution about the entrance to this (and a few other) ride, the ramps just before the boarding are can be very tight. If you're uneasy in tight places, prepare for some time in a narrow tube. Be sure to smile for the camera on the last drop!
