    I'm trying to remember what attractions I've been stuck on. I do remember being stuck on Spaceship Earth waaaaay back in '83 all the way up at the top in the planet Earth room, and having to walk down all the steps to the bottom. That was an adventure!

    The other ones we've been escorted off of were Alice in Wonderland at Disneyland and Splash Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland. It's kinda fun seeing some of the backstage area.

    I got stuck on Splash a few years back, just before the big drop. We heard the same announcement about 50 times, then, just as they were getting it back online, a lady behind us had a panic attack and jumped off. So we were escorted off, and got fast passes for any 3 rides we wanted to use them on. It was cool to see the behind the scenes stuff though!

    I've been stuck in the haunted mansion when you are going down backwards...it was probably just a few minutes but it wasn't fun

    I was stuck on Space Mountain. We had taken our position to begin, but we never started. We sat and sat and, finally, a CM came to help us out of the vehicles and walk us out.

    Like Nate, I hit 999,9999 on Buzz Lightyear. I like that one because I tell my youngest son he can never beat my record.

    Got stuck for about fifteen minutes on Haunted Mansion in the Madame Leota scene then they came and let us out. We walked out of the ride with the lights on. Ruined some of the special effects for me.

    This probably wasn't being "stuck".

    On omnimover rides, the entire tracks of cars needs to stop temporarily to allow people with mobility issues to board a ride vehicle.

    This probably happens to me 3 or 4 times during a week long trip. I just hope it happens in Buzz Lightyear!

    My cousin and I were stuck on Splash Mountain at the very top of the hill for about 15 minutes. A couple years ago, my family and I got stuck on Expedition Everest right before the yeti and they had to walk us behind the scenes. Other rides Ive been stuck on in the past have been: HM, TT, PoTC , TTA, & Space Mountain

    I can only remember two times this has happened. Both ironically on EMV attractions... DINOSAUR at DAK and Indy at DL. We didn't walk off at any point but we were stopped for at least 10 minutes.

    Been stuck on a few rides, most memorable was some lady jumping out of her log right before the final lift hill on Splash Mountain. Needless to say we sat there for 20 mins & a few years later they installed lap bars
    Too many trips to keep track of now! Vacation WDW twice a year so any questions ask freely ☺️

    Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Peter Pan, Small World, People Mover, Monorail, Dinosaur, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion… It's all good I figure since they run so much there are going to be some problems. We just sit and wait it out and don't throw any tantrums Some people get so mad. It’s never been a super long delay, so we just roll with it. Why stress it!!
    Been there, done that and going back!!! See ya real soon !!!

    I've walked off Everest and Splash before.

    But the best story ever is what happened to my son (13) and nephew (5) last summer. They were stuck on the Barnstormer, right at the top. One of the cars had already gone over the ridge when it stopped. They were up there for a really long time in the rain. They had a cast member stand by each car, which I thought was a bit odd. Then, the suits with radios showed up and I knew something was up. Then, the fire department came. They had to tie the track down before they could evacuate people because they were worried that if they shifted the weight, the cars would go over.

    So, after about 35 mintues, they walked each group off. Everyone got a towel and like 5 fastpasses that were good for any ride and were good for 5 days.

    That was an adventure!

    I've been stuck on rides a bunch of times but the longest was on the people mover. I was with my cousin and we wanted to see the inside line for Space Mountain. We were across from the ride when we heard a loud bang, like lightning hit something, and the ride stopped. It began to pour, then the wind picked up. We got down on the floor, I have no idea what we thought that was going to do, until cast members came through to get us out. We were on a path along side the track and taken through Mickey's Star Traders. We were completely soaked, our sneaked squished as we walked. We had to go back to our room and when we got there, we found out the resort didn't see a drop of rain.

    I noticed the stories about going through attractions without music/animatronics moving. My son and I went through Splash Mountain once when there was absolutely no music or movement in the animatronics. The cast members sent us through again and everything was working.

    Default Darn Splash Mountain waterfall!

    At the end of Splash Mountain....just after the big drop, you know that little waterfall on right side of the log? Well I got stuck there for about 15 minutes. The funny part is I was quick to show off to my family how dry I managed to stay...but that waterfall changed that. Disney did turn the waterfall off about 5 minutes before we started to move forward again, but it wasn't any help at that point.

    I've also been stuck on Test Track a couple of times, had to be escorted off.

    Big Thunder - on the first ascent up. It think it was a good 20 minutes - fortunately, a cast member came there to keep us company. And they let us ride it again without getting out.

    Places we've been delayed multiple times: Small World, Spaceship Earth, Haunted Mansion, Buzz Lightyear, People Mover, COP and Pirates. In fact - on Pirates - they let us out the exit doors in the middle of the line - jammed packed & shut down. Kind of scary with all those people.....

    And, I've been on Space Mountain when the lights came on - twice. That's disturbing because it looks like the track above you is so close that you're going to be decapitated. I did not like it with the lights on!!!!

    We just got stuck on Haunted Mansion this past Saturday. We sat for probably 15 minutes or so, then they turned off the music, put the lights on, and walked us off.

    Was SO cool to get to walk out through the graveyard scene!!!

    I've been stuck on several rides, but this is my most memorable. My family and I got stuck on Horizons. CM's took us out of the car. The guy took a piece off the back of the car, and we climbed out. We were walked off the ride and came out in the back parking lot and had to walk up back to Epcot. What a cool experience!

    HM in the ballroom! About 10 minutes and loved every second of it.
    POTC - Right in the beginning where the smoke comes down and "Dead Men Tell No Tales!". We got stuck right in the smoke for about 10 minutes got going and then got stuck again by the pirate in the pig sty.

    I really don't mind getting stuck on rides for a little while. I take the opportunity to look at the little details that might get overlooked as you pass by. The smoke in the face for 10 minutes got a little old though.
