After reading @SourcererMark79's wonderful thread about other guests ruining your experience, I wanted to know if anyone had stories of other guests making your experience better. I've got one that happened recently. I've been on Soarin' a bunch of times. Like, a bunch. I love the ride tremendously, but after a few times it does tend to get a little repetitive. Last time I went on it though - this June, during my past visit to DCA - a couple sitting next to me brought all the joy back. They were from Japan and were first-time DLR visitors. Given their Chip n Dale and Duffy gear, I figured they'd been to Tokyo Disneyland a couple times at least, but it was clear they'd never been on Soarin' before. After buzzing about during the pre-show, when the ride started, both of them, particularly the man, were just agape at the ride experience. Every single time the scene changed or the ride swooped or smells filled the room, you'd just hear "Sugoi sugoi sugoi!!" It was so darn cute and they seemed really happy and I was just really glad to be able to share that first ride experience with them in that way. It brought me back to the first time I rode Soarin' Over California in 2001. I hope y'all have some fun stories like this too!
