But first, a question: when we say Disney Mountains, do we mean that in the literal sense; namely, do we mean the traditional triumvirate of Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad found at Disney parks worldwide? Is Expedition: Everest eligible, being as it is subtitled a mountain?* Does the Fantasmic stage count?** Looks pretty mountainous to me.
Settle in: judgments begin now.
Kill: The Magic Kingdom's Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
I'm sorry! I know it hurts. But BTMRR, while adorable and magnificently themed, is a glorified kiddie coaster. (Never mind that both Moon and my mother find it terrifying; they are wimps, wimping along wimpily. ;) Because of Moon's aforementioned terror, I did not experience Disneyland's BTMRR during our Tink trip, so maybe it's a little beefier?
Disneyland's Space Mountain has music and lights and an overlay and - this is important - CARS YOU CAN GET INTO AND OUT OF WITHOUT FALLING ON YOUR FACE, EXPOSING YOUR UNDERWEAR, OR OTHERWISE LOOKING LIKE A RAGING IDIOT. I want the MK's version to have cars that don't make me look like a raging idiot!
