  • [Question] Things you should do at least once in Disneyland

    My family and extended family are headed to DL in June. I have been to the parks a handful of times over the years and there are still a few things I have yet to do that I really would like to try out this time around. On our last visit I finally saw Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln and rode the Casey Jr. Circus Train... both of which I can cross off the list and don't feel like I need to do again. The only thing I can think of is the canoes which I have already warned my kids we WILL be doing. Just recently I learned there is a Library in the Animation Building in DCA? What other gems am I missing? Does anyone have any favorite lesser known attractions they would like to share? Anything that you should "at least do once?"

      Well according the stupidest experience with the GP thread, you must have an outside the bathroom pee adventure. :thumbdown

          -Ride one of the Main Street Vechicles (take your pick)
          -Have a Dole Whip while watching The Enchanted Tiki Room
          -Try to translate the Maraglyphs in The Temple of the Forbidden Eye
          -Stop to watch The Bootstrappers perform (the Pirate Band in New Orleans Square)
          -Find the out of the way path that lets you see Splash Mountain riders post-splash down
          -Ride Splash Mountain during the fireworks show
          -Find the Graveyard on Tom Sawyer's Island
          -See Billy Hill and the Hillbillies play at The Golden Horseshoe
          -Ride the Red Car from Buena Vista Street to Tower of Terror
          -Check out everything in the Disney Animation building (Animation Academy, Turtle Talk with Crush, and Sorcerer's Workshop)
          -Listen for the lost little girl behind the chalk outline in the second level of the Tower of Terror queue
          -See Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular
          -Watch as the lights come on in the evening in Cars Land
          -Work together with your partner in Toy Story Midway Mania to unlock the bonus point easter eggs
          -Stop to watch people get soaked (or not) by the geyser at the end of Grizzly River Run

          And, of course, every attraction is worth seeing at least once, even the ones people tend to look down on.

              I highly recommend the Tiki Room on crowded days.

                Love these! I can't believe I forgot about the cars on Main Street...I have never done those. I have had a Dole Whip and (gulp) didn't like it...I know, I know...I think I might be the only one. And I have seen Aladdin. The rest I will try and achieve! Thanks!

                  Grab a Mint Julep and some beignets, a seat on a bench at the fountain in New Orleans Square and soak in the sights and sounds, I've always loved that spot because of the atmosphere... and the close proximity to the Haunted Mansion and the Mint Julep bar.

                  Enjoy your day!

                    I hope you didn't mean to pee on Tiki Maynard.

                    I will add visit the Disney Gallery on Mainstreet, see Shrunken Ned in Adventureland, have lunch overlooking the water at Hungry Bear Restaurant.

                      Check out the Toy Story Zoetrope at the Animation Building. It never fails to impress and every newbie I've ever seen watch it lets out a gasp of awe when it gets going.

                      Throw a coin in Snow White's Wishing Well and stay to listen to her sing.

                      See the evil queen come out from behind her window above Snow White's Scary Adventures.

                        Hey, grab that apple at Snow White's Scary Adventures, too.

                          Don't worry, you're not the only one. I don't like pineapple, so I let other people enjoy the Dole Whip.

                            I'm a rope drop type of Disneyland visitor and you've described a typical morning. Coffee, beignets and New Orleans Square. Great way to start the day. Of course you wear powdered sugar all over your shirt the rest of the day.

                            No no no. Don't anger the Tiki Gods and Goddesses.

                              Mmm, gotta have a Dole Whip. And don't forget to visit city hall for your free button!
