What parks in Florida for roller coasters?

Monday, November 4, 2013 3:50 PM

^Not in the parks. Every line but Dinosaur at the AK, most of the rides at the MK, and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at MGM are outside. Epcot is the only place where every attraction that has a long wait (>30 min) has an a/ced line.

Maybe that's why he said SOME places and not EVERY place?

This is precisely why You're Not Supposed To Go To Disney World In The Dead Of Summer.® I have. Twice. My last visit was when I was 14. My parents did it wrong.

Yeah, Florida weather is hot and humid. Frankly, it's no worse than summers in the DC Metro area, except that it possibly lasts a little longer.

As I've gotten older I've grown to dislike heat and humidity more and more. However, I've also grown to hate cold weather more and more. And yet I still like the change of seasons...go figure.

And Ill accept four months of cold and dreary for eight months of awesome. (I love the fall, and I never complain about December weather because of Christmas.)

Im just tired of southerners stating how they will take the summer for the nice winter, and then turning around and putting on their "yeah right" face when I throw down that I prefer my weather.

Of course, once I retire I plan to have my cake and eat it too (future snowbird) but until I can afford to do that Ill take cold winter over hot summer any day.

I enjoy snow, a lot actually. But I am partial to the milder weather here in the Metrolina area.

In an ideal world, I would probably live in Seattle in the summer, Orlando the rest of the year.

If we could just eliminate the snow, Ohio wouldn't be so terrible. I can deal with a few months of cold, it's the snow (and the dreary, constantly grey skies that accompany it) that I can't tolerate anymore. If we could just skip from October to April, that would be fantastic.

I have a lot of fun sled riding and snow tubing with my kids. I'll keep the snow, but I'd like to ditch the extreme cold. Still, you can bundle up and stay warm when it's cold. When it's oppressively hot you're pretty much screwed.

I love the Ohio snow and I can even deal with the cold too. It's the melty, muddy, slushy goo with seemingly endless gray skies that bums me out.

Or you can strip down and get wet when it's hot. See, there's a positive spin for everything. :)

It was the flat, gray skies of Cleveland that lasted for weeks that I couldn't take. People (who don't know any better) criticize Seattle for the winter rains, but at least there you'll see the sun frequently, especially if you live further out from the sound.

That, and the nice trees and scenery around the area. Sure, we have some forestry here in CLE, but the tall, west coast trees are where it's at.

Having everything green year-round helps too.

Only weather I struggle with is 1) cold and rain (35-45 degrees and rain) and 2) extended periods of high temps and humidity. To me, the ideal winter is one where snow starts to fall the weekend after Thanksgiving, with dustings of fresh snow every couple of days and heavier accumulations every week or so resulting in total ground cover until sometime late in April. Follow that with 2 or 3 weeks of spring (my least favorite season) and move on to summer.

I am amazed at the number of people who live in northeast Ohio (and I suspect other places with cold/snowy winters) who pretty much dread winter. You can see the look in their eyes this time of year. They are entering into a period of depression and will basically hibernate for the next few months. If I didn't really like winter, I would likely feel the same. But if I did that, I would really think about relocating. Three or four months out of the year to be unhappy or stuck in the house every year is too long.

It's hard to love travel and leave your family because a lot of your travel time is now visit the family time. I think at some point my wife and I will leave Pittsburgh for mountains and or sun but I don't know when.

Yeah, Jeff. I've been to Seattle three times (spring, summer and fall), it rocks. So green. I could do that easy.

Portland and Vancouver, BC are great too.
