The Many Emotions of Cole’s First Roller Coaster

We’re back, we’ve unpacked, and we’re working through the feelings of PDD {Post Disney Depression}. The past couple of days, I’ve been sifting through all of our pictures and videos and so far, this is one of my absolute favorite moments we captured: Cole’s first ever ride on Goofy’s roller coaster.

Poor Cole. Such a shorty.

Jack first rode the Barnstormer just after his second birthday, but he was always at the top of the growth charts. Cole, on the other hand, has always been on the small side, so this March he just missed the mark to ride the toddler thrill-ride of Storybook Circus. I think we might have all cried a little.

A few weeks before we left for our most recent trip, I measured him again and was excited to find that Cole had finally reached the ridable height required for the Barnstormer. We were all elated, so a common verse for our chain-tearing silly song was,

Cole’s gonna ride Goofy’s roller coaster,

Roller coaster,

Roller coaster.

Cole’s gonna ride Goofy’s roller coaster,

When all our chains are gone!

When the moment finally arrived, we were all anxious to know how Cole would take this first “thrill ride”. Luckily, Tim caught the whole thing on video.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I find it hilariously wonderful. 

Also, just so you know, he rode it two more times and loved every moment. He’s excited to ride other “big boy” rides like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Test Track, and Splash Mountain in the future. Time to eat some green beans and spinach! Grow, Coco, grow!

With love, Malorie
