Rides with Friends – A First Ride with Zoe

The thing that I was the MOST excited about when we decided to move to Orlando was not having to endure a few months or even a year of waiting for Zoe’s next Disney Milestone. She got her first haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop, she rode The Barnstormer as her first roller coaster, and learned that fairy tales come true when she met the Fairy Godmother as her first character experience.

And while Zoe is a lover of all the mountains (Space, Thunder, and Splash), there was one thrill that she still had on her list (that she is tall enough to ride)…The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

So after months of debating, she finally agreed to ride The Tower of Terror!

We walked the queue in silence sharing quick glances, waiting for her to chicken out. Then as we walked through the lobby, we realized that it was really going to happen we all got nervously excited. As the preshow “movie”, as Zoe called it, ended she led us to the elevators. After being strapped in, she took a death grip on both mine and Dave’s hands…and the rest is history!

  1. How exciting!! She’s a lucky little lady to live so close to the magic and have a mommy who “gets it”.

  2. What a fantastic moment to capture for Zoe! My hubby took our then 5 year old son on it for the first time two years ago. They dropped 10 times – hubby did not look so good afterward, but my son liked it. Of course, he refuses to go on it now.

  3. Too funny! I love her face. And that she said she loved it at the end!! All the kids had to watch it with me to figure out why I was laughing!
