    Re: Which rides and attractions you skip?

    Since I have a heart condition, I will never, EVER go on California Screamin' again.

      I love to stand and watch The California Screamin ride launch. However, that's the closest that I will ever get to ever riding the ride, which I won't do.

              The first time I rode Space Mountain I actually had my glasses on because I didn't know how fast the ride went. I spent a majority of the ride with one hand on the lap bar and the other hand on my frames. It's the only ride I take my glasses off for.
              Merrily on our way to nowhere at all.

                    In Disneyland I generally skip, Dumbo, the one with the whale and boats, Peter Pan, everything in toon town except Roger Rabbit, autopia, and subs. I either skip because I dont like them, or I find the waits too long for what you get.

                    In DCA I always skip Mickeys "death" er fun wheel, Tower of Terror and the swings.

                        Re: Which rides and attractions you skip?

                        There are only two attractions that I will officially skip: the Canoe's and Nemo. One is too much work and the other is too closed in. Did ride Nemo once and was not at all happy with the experience. Lesson learned!

                        Everything else I try my best to get to, but if I don't make it- no worries. There's always next time.

                            Space Mountain: This is a maybe. It depends on if the others in my party want to ride. It's just a bit pointless for me because I take off my glasses to ride stuff that goes this fast. It's just waiting in line for 45min to get wind the face in the dark for me.

                            Dr. Fink, I wear glasses and get to enjoy "seeing" Space Mountain and BTMRR too. I bought a pair of Croakies to slip over the ear pieces on my glasses, then slip them even tighter for a snug fit. I don't miss a thing anymore.

                              Thanks for the advice. I'll look into some ear pieces and straps for my trip in May.

                                Personally, I skip Star Wars, California Screamin', Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain, Silly Symphonies and the Fun Wheel. All are motion sickness inducing.
                                Note on the Fun Wheel: I don't get motion sickness on this one strangely, but my wife and daughter don't like to ride it, so I stay off too.
                                I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                                  I definitely never never skip space mountain it's hard to understand why you do. In my opinion it's fun to go fast thought the dark with wind rushing through your face

                                    Because of problems with spinning, I have never ridden the Rocket Jets, and haven't been on Tea Cups since I was about 10. We usually don't get to ToonTown or Critter Country unless we want to ride the canoes. Also haven't been on the Columbia since my teen years. Now hubby is in scooter, so that one is out anyway. Depends on lines for other rides which we go on. Other than the ones mentioned, I'm pretty open

                                      I tend to skip Space Mountain as well. I think it's highly overrated and would much rather go on Big Thunder or the Matterhorn where there is some actual show elements. But that's just me.

                                        We usually skip:

                                        At Disneyland:
                                        All of Toontown
                                        Storybook Canal
                                        Mr. Toad
                                        Peter Pan! (We LOVE it but we usually skip because of the lines )
                                        Nemo
                                        Innoventions
                                        Starcade
                                        Buzz (I've noticed we have started skipping this. I think it just isn't as exciting as it once was to us or our kids. It might be because there is now TSMM in DCA)
                                        Astro Orbiter (line moves too slow)
                                        Mr. Lincoln
                                        Main St. cinema
                                        The Columbia
                                        Tom Sawyer's Island

                                        At DCA we usually skip:

                                        The Muppets (unless there is a movie preview in there)
                                        Monsters Inc.
                                        Aladdin
                                        Playhouse
                                        All of Bug's land (except sometimes daughter does the bumper cars)
                                        Luigi's Tires
                                        Mater's
                                        The Funwheel, Zephyr, Jellyfish, Boardwalk Games
                                        Grizzly River Rapids (don't like to get soaked)
                                        World of Color! (We like it when we can see it but have decided that it is just too crowded and the viewing area wasn't planned right. You can almost never see what is going on. Too many heads, arms, and ipads in the way).

                                        Our musts at Disneyland (trip is not complete if we don't do it)

                                        Splash Mtn., Space Mtn., BTMRR, Pirates, Tea Cups, Small World, Canoes, Mark Twain, Disney Railroad, Tarzan's Treehouse, Billy Hill and Hillbillies, Cafe Orleans, Fireworks, soaking in the atmosphere of Main St. and whole west side of the park.

                                        Our musts at DCA

                                        Animation Building, TOT, Soarin', Screamin', TSMM, the Silly Symphony Swings!, RSR, and enjoying Buena Vista St.

                                        #1 attraction I wish they would bring back: The Skyway

                                          I tend to skip the Mad Tea Party. It doesn't mean I won't stand around and watch it once in a while but it is one of those "been on it once" type of things. When we went to Disneyland last year we skipped out on Star Tours. I've done it at WDW and to be honest that ride along with Mission Space at Epcot aren't my favourites. I am not a huge fan of simulator rides. They have one at Sea World Orlando too which you can ride to get to the Polar bear enclosure but to me those things just throw off my balance. Borderline headaches for me. I know Star Tours had a refurb and all but the line was too long for me to check out.

                                          Also not sure I'll do Finding Nemo Voyage again. You're awfully cramped in there.
