  • HydroGuy's Make Sure You Get On Your Favorite Ride Rule

    Rule

    Ride your favorite rides as early in the trip as possible.


    Who This Rule Affects

    Multi-Day visitors

    Explanation

    All rides break down at times. Sometimes they can be fixed that day, but on some occasions it may take more than one day to fix them. If you go on your favorite rides early in your trip, you will maximize your chances of experiencing that ride.

    By way of personal experience, in year 2000 we were planning Space Mtn for the afternoon of Day #1 on a three-day trip. It broke down that afternoon and was down for the rest of the trip. While I had ridden it before, none of my children had. Then in 2003 when we made a two-day trip it was down for refurbishment (it was down for two-and-a-half years altogether). By the time we finally got them on Space Mtn on a four-day trip in 2005, my children had had to wait five years to go on this ride.

    Why Did I Post This Rule?

    I find myself posting answers to the same question in different threads, and decided to make a list of “rules” to which I or others can quickly link in the future. In addition, the ideas behind the rule are often posted by others so I do not claim originality for the rule.

      Common Sense applies to Disney vacations. Sometimes people just don't use their common sense. That's why I try and visit each park's early entry. It is on those mornings that I can really ride the rides that I really want to. It makes a WDW vacation so much better. The same would apply at Disneyland. Head for your favorite things at opening time. You snooze you lose.

          I would like to respond, but frankly I do not understand what either of you mean.

            Sometimes the best thing to do is to do nothing.

              This is thejoshualee's guide to eating bread

              Rule #1 take bread out of package

              Who this applies to: Everyone

              Explanation: if you try to eat the bread while it is still in the package, then you will end up eating plastic.

              Rule #2 put bread in mouth, chew, and swallow

              Who this applies to: Everyone

              Explanation: if you try and swallow the bread before you chew it or put it in your mouth you will either choke or just end up swallowing air.

                Great rules! But people might not being able to find this buried here in this thread, so you may want to start your own thread where it will be easier to find.

                  sometimes the best thing to do is show up around noon, saunter on over to a shady bench near new orleans square, and just relax.

                    For an AP holder that may very well be true. For people who visit every year or two, or less, I doubt many of them would be interested in doing this.
