    What an adorable coaster! Thanks for another great video Rick!
    I’m not much for kiddie rides. I’m a rather large man and tend to not fit comfortly in a lot of kiddie rides. That being said, my wife and I do try and ride the Winnie The Pooh when the lines aren’t too terribly long. We can both fit comfortly in the seat,and like a child, I enjoy “bouncing” along with Tigger.

    We love the barnstormer too…riding it several times gave my then 5 y.o. the courage to try Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and now he will ride anything.
    Thanks for the report, I enjoyed it!

    Hi Rick,
    Thanks for this video because I missed Toon Town when I was out in DL last year and it looks like I missed a fun attraction.
    I’m a big Disney kid too and at the age of 67 I still love to ride Dumbo when I can and A MUST SEE is the The Muppets Show at DS!
    Have a magical day!

    Hi again Rick
    I am not much for kiddie rides. The only one that is “thrilling” is the Barnstormer at Mickey’s Toontown Fair.

    PS Do you think you could do the Cauosel of Progress as an episode one week? Thanks Nick

    Thanks for the ride on the Gadget Coaster. It does seem very similar to Barstormer, buit I thought Barnstormer lasted longer.
    The kid in me can’t distinguish between a kiddie ride and an adult ride in WDW. They’re all fun. All right if i must pick a kiddie ride I do adore the Peter Pan ride. I love floating over the scenes from the movie.


  7. Penny Serrato says:

    What a fun little coaster. Thanks for sharing. I have never been to DL so I am making a list of things to do if/when I go. My favorite Kiddie ride has to be Peter Pan at least so far, since I haven’t ridden them all that is still open for change.


  8. Brad S says:

    Wow expected a longer ride, that was a fast really ride on the Gadget Coaster but it was adorable, wish they had that around when I was a kid.
    We always like Peter Pan and I have to say one of our favorite is the Tea Cups since it can both a kiddie ride and an adult ride depending on how fast you spin it. Thanks again! Can’t wait to see what’s next!

    Hey Rick,

    I tend to avoid the “kiddy rides” other than It’s A Small World. But I have decided to change my attitude about “kiddy rides”. This week I recieved a new set of maps of the theme parks at Disney World. I was so impressed with the color and detail of the maps–they just drew me into my inner child’s world. I made a goal to go on every ride in every theme park–paying particular attention to the children’s areas that I ususally avoid. I will avoid some rides if they appear to be too jerky for my back and neck or too squeamish for my stomach.

    See you next week Rick–in your video that is.

    Take Care,

    Hi, Rick!

    Gadgets Go Coaster is really cute. I will definitely have to ride it when I go to Disneyland next year!!

    As far as a favorite “kiddie ride” at Walt Disney World, I think it would be Peter Pan’s Flight. I love “flying” over London!

    Have a great week!!

  11. Sue M. says:

    My fav kiddie ride would have to be Peter Pan, and Aladins Carpets, oh, and Cinderella’s Carousel!


  12. Debbie Bolen says:

    Oh Gadgets looks so cute! It is short, but for little ones, it is probably about right. I have several “must-do” kiddie rides, since my inner child is alive in WDW. I always have to see the Muppet Show, Peter Pan and of course Pooh! I rode Barnstormer a lot of years ago with my son on his 1st coaster ride and loved it…..I really hope they find a way to incorporate it into all the changes coming up.
    Can’t wait to see some other things in Disneyland in upcoming shows.


  13. Jim Minekime says:

    What a great little ride! I love the hand cranking the train up the hill.

    Dumbo is my favorite kiddie ride. Brings a smile to my face every time I ride it.



  14. Kevin Nelson says:

    Thanks Rick, Gadgets Go Coaster looks great and my boys would love it! I love all the attractions at WDW, but I would have to say It’s A Small World because it brings back so many memories, I sat beside my mom and dad when I was 4 years old and I love the fact that my boys will have the same memories sitting beside me and my wife, Life is Great! Keep up the great work and keep smilin’, the world will smile back!


  15. Jeanne Cundiff says:

    Great video Rick! What a cute little ride. My favorite kiddie ride has to be Peter Pan’s Flight. I just love feeling like I am flying around the top of the ship and looking down at the city of London. It’s just a neat feeling. Disney always gives the best.
    Thanks for another great video!!!


  16. Kelly Pettis says:

    I love most rides at WDW but my favorite would have to be the teacups.

    thanks for the dose of Disney. It is always so nice to enjoy the world.

    I dont know that it is a ride but we have never visited Tom Sawyer Island in the Magic Kingdom.
