Wordless Wednesday! Mad Hatter's Tea Cups!



My bfs first trip to Dlp in 2008 - Also his first time on the Mad Hatter's Tea Cups! 
Before we went on he wasn't impressed - he likes huge rollercoasters! He saw this one as a 'kiddie ride'.
Once we were snug inside our teacup he said "Whats that??" pointing to the big metal disc in the middle. "You spin it and it spins the teacup" I said ( Doh! :P ) His face lit up! "You mean you get to control how fast this thing spins!?" It's fair to say I came off more than just a little dizzy! Not such a 'kiddie ride' after all :P

You can see some worn paint on the inside - this was around 8 months before the much needed refurb of this attraction! But it's all spick and span and gorgeous now! :)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Be sure to pop over to the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop at Focused on the Magic to see lots of other Wordless Wednesday posts from other awesome Disney bloggers! :)

I like drops and inversions, but I'm not much of a spinner. I use the big wheel in the center to steer my tea cup straight. I sound like an old lady, don't I? :oP

Manda said...

lol we were Mrs Mommy MouseEars! Though I think he was having more fun than I was! :P
I don't think I could steer my cup straight if I tried! You must be a pro dizzneemomma! :P And not an old lady at all! I only just got over my coaster fear about 3 years ago!! lol :)

Definitely a realistic photo. Made me woozy like I was on it... My kids love to spin; however, I don't handle it very well anymore, so I sit in one by myself and let them spin away.
