Default Which attraction do you nap on?

Sad to say, but I often find that I often end up having a little nap on some attractions. Wondered which one others nap on. Just a fun little poll.

There have been many dark rides and shows that I plopped into my seat with a sigh, relieved to be off my feet, but I have never even come close to napping on a ride. I find WDW way too exciting for that. I did, however, almost pass out at the Adventurer's Club once, but I don't think that counts...

I've never fallen asleep on any attraction. But if I did it would be Hall of Presidents

DH and I both fell asleep on Ellen's Energy Adventure once (even though we both liked the ride.) I think we fell asleep because it was the first time we'd sat down and relaxed after 3 days of storming the park commando style. The funny part was that each of us was trying to hide it from the other one.

Ok so I am a history teacher and I have to admit, the American Adventure can be pretty dry. My wife always falls asleep. I don't because I love history and it is truly an amazing show if you consider the technology that goes into it. That being said, I do feel they need to revamp parts of the show. The Civil War section is terrible!

Spaceship Earth, during the downward spiral. By that time, I'm pretty comfortable and easily lulled to a restful state. In fact, by that time, I always wish I could stay on for another round and continue the relaxing journey.

It never fails that I'll catch a quick nap when we do a show in the afternoon thats air conditioned. We schedule these attractions at this time for that reason. Its great to get out of the afternoon heat/humidity for the 15-20 minutes and just relax. I voted for Carousel of Progress, although I could have selected more than one.

Ha! Another vote for Spaceship Earth!

I love the ride...one of my favorites. However, when you are riding backwards looking up at the dark sky...in a nice comfortable reclined position

Can't be helped!

Ellen is for sure the easiest. I hope they never change it! 30-40 minutes of uninterrupted time in a dark, air conditioned space is like gold at WDW. American Adventure would be a distant 2nd.

Oh, my DH and DD use Spaceship Earth as their personal napping ground. I love that ride!

Honestly, as much as I try not to sometimes sitting the in AC on cushion seats in the dark gets the best of me - American Adventure and Hall of Presidents (although I always wake up to see the Presidents speak)!

sounds dangerous is a great napping area. It's dark, I don't put on the headphones & just have the kids tell me when it is over. I really can't believe this continues to stay open. Sooooo boring!

I put down Ellen's Energy Adventure, but I have slept in the Hall of Presidents and the Carousel of Progress. I have also lost consciousness in Bear Jamboree, although I have no idea how. I must have been really tired.

COP for me b/c we normally do it in the afternoon. The music, the slow turning theater, the a/c, after a big lunch.

See I can't help myself

I voted UofEnergy, but today at Epcot I also napped at the American Experience, Circle, and the France movie.. I might have been out cold on that one.

Hall of Presidents gets my vote every time. As fascinating the animatronic presidents are, the a/c wins hands down on a hot and humid day. It's dark and cool for a short nap.
