    I always fall asleep on Hall of Presidents, universe of energy, american adventure and sometimes COP. I try so hard to stay awake...but after spending so much time walking, in the heat, its hard to resist.

    I remember falling asleep as a child in the Hall of Presidents. That was when I was 7. I think at 29 I could still fall asleep in there.

    Universe of Energy gets me everytime. I've never seen past Ellen introducing herself. Also, my first trip to WDW after a long day my entire family (both parents and 3 siblings) feel asleep at a movie in The Land in Epcot. Don't remember what the movie was about, something to do with land and agriculture I think. We all slept through it and woke up in time to leave the park.

    this surprises me, although i can understand falling asleep in this attraction, not ever seeing it surprises me, it is IMHO one of the best shows in world showcase and one of the best uses of animatronics that Disney has to offer it is a very impressive show

    Hall of Presidents got me when I was a kid. Now though, I'm really just too pumped up to fall asleep. I really like when you doze off in small places while waiting for someone. It feels just like being a kid again when you wake up and remember you are at WDW! Like last year, we had a lot of people, so I usually had to wait a long time for them to go the bathroom/smoke etc. I loved having a little sitdown in Main Street, or a little corner in Epcot etc.

    As far as you know....you could have gone around 4 or 5 times, snoring, drooling, people pointing...


    Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're NOT out to get you!

    There is something about the Universe of Energy that makes me sleepy. I love the ride, but when I get in there I cannot for the life of me keep my eyes open, which can be pretty embarrassing if you sister chooses to sit in the front row!

    DH and I BOTH fell asleep on Ellen, even though we both like the attraction. We had been getting at the parks at 7:00 AM for 8:00 opening 4 days in a row and never returned to the resort for a rest. I was pretty cranky by the time we got to the Universe of Energy. After Ellen, I was recharged!

    Even though I love Spaceship Earth I’ve fallen asleep in there before. When I was at WDW a few weeks ago I went in the Hall of Presidents for the first time in at least 10 years and I actually fought sleep because I was interested in seeing what changes they made. I’m a dork, I know! But it was so cool on a hot day and the narrator’s voice is so soothing….

    Let me preface by saying that I can sleep anywhere. I’ve even dozed while standing on a New York City Subway train.

    I have probably dozed or slept in every show or movie that I’ve been to in WDW at one time or another.

    I remember sleeping through almost the entire Universe of Energy ride (sorry Ellen). I can also remember nodding in the Haunted Mansion. I’m sure there have been more. For me any ride that’s dark and slow is a candidate for a quick Z.

    I love Hall of Presidents, but somehow I usually manage to doze off a little bit sitting in the cool dark. When I'm extrememly tired, I've been known to do the same in Carousel of Progress, but that's one of my all time faves, so I usually manage to stay away for that.

    Dinosaur! Puts me out everytime.

    Fainting is kind of the same as sleeping, right?
