    Re: What's the most laps you've ever done on the DLRR?

    I have never kept track but I am sure I have hit atleast 10 at one time at some point. I loved trains as a kid and still do, and the DLRR is my top attraction, I love the sounds, and the smell, and just everything about it. I can also sleep on it no problem if I am tired, the moving of a train is very relaxing.

    Off topic a bit but once I fell asleep on the SD Trolley after working an overnight shift and the train operator woke me up when the train was going out of service, once off the train I realized I was downtown and it was 4:00pm, I got on the trolley at 7am....lol..

    As much as I like the DLRR, my personal record is a paltry one and a half times. I guess I'm programmed to ride and let others on when my one time around is over. I did ride it 4 times in one day a long time ago with my 4 year old nephew who just loved the dinosaurs, so I took him on while others in our party rode Splash Mountain or other attractions.

    When I was a kid, I was OBSESSED with trains...so my mother took my sisters around the park to ride other rides, and my father sat aboard the train with me for hours it seemed like. I'm certain we must have gone at least 10x around the park. I always loved the different displays you could see...and I even got to go into the engineer's compartment & set off the train's whistle....

    Fast forward 30 years later, and now I had the chance to do the same thing with MY two sons...With their grandfather there also. What a memory. I think Dad was content to let me narrate to my sons about the rides around the park while he relived his own memories of doing that with me.

    Circle of life, indeed.

    My husband and I usually start off with a ride from Main Street to New Orleans Square, and then get on it multiple times during the day.

    When our feet give out, we'll ride around 2-3 times until we're back in good shape to walk.

    I wish DCA had something similar.

    Me and a friend fell asleep on the RR for at least 2 hours on one trip. lol Not sure how many round trips that is but I'm sure it was quite a few.

    1 actually. After years of assuming the railroad was the most boring thing in the park, I finally convinced myself to actually GO on it a few months ago. It's now on my "not to be missed" ride list

    During One More Day we did 12 circuits. No reason to get off and fight the masses.

    Depends on the hogger (engineer).

    To some of us, however, the motions are as soothing as being rocked to sleep as a baby.

    Nothing sad about that. They're being mellow and not getting in any fights, arguments, or being loud. Besides, you said "buzzed." That's different from being drunk.

    Come to think of it, that sounds like a relaxing time if I was buzzed!

    At 4:15am during Leap Day, it wasn't too bad/hard to fall asleep ;-)

    It's not too bad actually.

    I've slept in a lot of worse places than the Disneyland train.

    Since we go down to Disneyland several days at a time, I always kind of like to start my first day in the park with a couple of "grand circle tours" - usually 2 and a quarter (two full trips around then get off on New Orleans Square). I always find a couple of trips on the RR a good way to get reacquainted with the park after being gone awhile.

    I have a co-worker who would tell me her and her husband would spend an afternoon getting buzzed in Downtown Disney then head over the train to basically go in circles to sober up. Kind of sad really.

    No flash photography, please.

    A few weeks ago, we drove down from the woman's house and spent the entire day at the park.

    I think we made 4 or 5 complete circuits. We each took a nap.

    Back in the olden days, when it took an actual ticket to ride, I would often ride around at least 5 times. I really felt I was getting my money's worth!

    No fair getting off at any stop. Have you ever been on for a few complete tours?

    Anyone hear of any records for this?
