  • Oddball things you always look at while on attractions

    I'm not talking the usual animatronics or scenes, I'm talking really off the cuff things. Here's some examples of what I am talking about.

    When on POTC there are 2 things I always make sure I look at. One is as you leave the battle scene and enter the mayor dunking scene, on the left up above on the "patio" area of the facade, there's this very 1960's looking round bubble lamp that I always think looks like something you'd see in an enclosed patio. The other thing I look at is between the jail scene and the gun fight, on the right are 2 arches on top of each other and I always look at the keystone of the bottom one.

    On HM at the very end before going into the "ghost will follow you home" room, I look up. I'm not even looking at the crow thats there, I just always look up for some reason. :lmao:

    While on IASW, I make sure I look up at the mechanism that makes the dolls fly around.

    Mr Toad I look up (what is it with me and looking up?!) while inside the queue at the bust of Toad in the rafters.

    Splash Mountain - the rug Brer Rabbit sits on at the very end.

    I KNOW I can't be the only one that looks at oddball things. Think about it. What do YOU look at every time?

    on potc, i look up at the foot of drunk pirate sitting on the bridge. i keep looking at it until i can no longer see it. i've been doing that since i was little.

    on iasw, i also look up at the mechanisms that make the dolls fly around.

      On Indy, I always have to turn and look for Bones, even though I'm not as young as I used to be, and it kinda hurts my back!

        On IASW I always look at the floor where all the poles are. For some reason it always catches my attention.

          I never really thought about it, but yes, I too stare at the IASW mechinisms that make the dolls fly.
          Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

            On most of the Fantasyland dark rides I tend to look down at the track. When flying over London on Peter Pan I almost always look at my pants, The way the lighter jean fibers glow just always catches my attention. Also on Star Tours I always always always look at the floor instead of the screen because if i didn't the people sitting next to me would not be very happy.

            And I too always look at the foot of the drunken pirate

              I'm a pirate foot looker too. We should start 12 step program for people with anamatronic pirate foot fetish.

                On Pirates I always watch for in the last scene the metal helmet on our right on a wooden crate to move and clink. Sometimes the shield hanging on the wall gets "hit" and moves and clinks too :-) Those things make me happy :-)

                  Matterhorn - at the end... Oddly, I always turn around to see one of the slowly spinning radial tires pushing us toward the "permane ser sentados por favor" speaker.

                  Big Thunder Trail - ALWAYS look at old MINE TRAIN tunnel (now covered with camo netting) and have a 10 second daydream of what the attraction was like. While I don't remember much... I remember enough to know I was SOOOO excited to ride it each and every time as a child.

                    It's not so much what I "look at," but more what I "say" every time I go on certain rides. Whenever I see the sword fighting scene on POTC, I say "Fight fight , it's a fight" and when I see the pirate who's driving the boat I say "There's my boyfriend" and when I see the parrot I say "It's Chachi!" I say these things quietly of course so as not to disturb the other guests on the boat!



                    Oh wait....I forgot about "Hairy leg dude" and "wiggly piggly foot" and don't know how to spell it but it 's the sound of the two cats going "Rrrhhhaaaahhh"

                      Matterhorn- turn around as passing the Yeti (not sure why)

                      BTMR- the goat

                      Indiana- turn around right when we go into our chamber (not quite sure what Im looking for but I know its there...)

                      Pirates- in the battle scene, I always turn around to see where the fog comes from and the lighting

                      HM- I always look at the crack on the glass in the ballroom that Disney simply covered up to make it look like a spider web by putting a spider on it

                      Last but not least, the golden stake to mark the center of the park

                        POTC I've been looking for some hidden donuts in the skeleton grotto that a CM told me about but I can't find ( maybe there pulling my peg leg) I don't have the drunk pirate foot fetish but I do try to look at the red wenches "undercarriage" and I always look at the 2 cats in POTC, even though one of there tails is broken and I usually talk with the pirate"here kitty,kitty, want some rum?" I always make sure at the end that the jail cells have locks on them for awhile the first cell didn't have a lock ( don't want them pirates getting out!) On BTMRR I always make noises with the goat and tiki room you have to sing with the birdies.On Indy I'm always looking on the ground, don't know why?

It is a good thing I was not drinking something because it would have ended up all over my screen. This image of your cat, fully dressed, requesting a photo shoot (in an English accent mind you) just really got to me. Wow, I need to go catch my breath and maybe see what was in that bottled water I was drinking earlier...

                            Another vote for the pirate's foot in POTC and the doll flying mechanism in iasw. I also always notice the cat with the permanently broken tail in POTC.

                            On Alice in Wonderland when your caterpillar car comes out on the second level I always find myself looking down at the marks the tires make beside the tracks.

                            In the Haunted Mansion when I get to the grandfather clock I always look behind me at the "claw wheel" that makes the shadow effect on the clock face.

                              On Space I'm always looking down or to the sides. On Big Thunder I always look at the possums and the goat. And I watch the dolls in small world fly.
                              I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

                                For me it's the following:

                                POTC - I always look up at the end of the ride at the chair getting ready to fall. I also look at the "alternate" tracks where the boats go when the ride shuts down at night. Furthermore, I too am a pirate foot looker!

                                BTMR - I too look at the goat, the turtles, and snakes.

                                Sleeping Beauty Castle - Center Spike as well.

                                Haunted Mansion - The dresser/chest that's partially hidden after/next to the ballroom scene. Also, the huge service door in the attic scene. I also look at the support pole for the zombies/dead people who pop up behind the gravestones.

                                Space Mountain - I always try to make out where the tracks are.

                                Any Dark Ride - I always try to look and see the other people either ahead or behind me.

                                Disneyland Railroad - The crocodile used for F! that's tucked away in Frontierland.

                                Indy - The hidden Mickey in the projector room.

                                Jungle Cruise - It may not be "obscure," per say, but I GOTTA look at the backside of water!

                                Splash Mountain - The upside-down hangin' opossums - SO CUTE!

                                Monorail - Any backstage stuff I can see.

                                New Orleans Square - The entrance to Club 33 (sigh - maybe someday).

                                ToonTown - The forgotten tracks of the Jolly Trolly - SOB!

                                Soarin' - Other peoples' feet. (Maybe I do have a foot fetish?) LOL

                                ToT - The cool dragon statue in the lobby.

                                California Screamin - The fans above the loading dock.

                                Sun Wheel - The other gondollas ahead of me that are swinging.

                                Grizzly River Run - The people watching my innertube coming down the final plunge.

                                California Adventure - The sign for Santa Rosa Corn Chowder.

                                ----------

                                That was a long list, I know. LOL. Sorry!

                                ...Joe...

                                      I don't think anyone mentioned the three red powder kegs suspended from the ceiling in POTC--they sort of resemble a hidden mickey.

                                        HM - Hidden Mickey Plates during the ballroom scene

                                        POTC - the falling barrels, I always used to worry they would fall on me when I was little.

                                        I always look up at the Materhorn where the Skyway used to be.

                                        It's always me
