  • Is it about how many rides you can get in, or the experience?

    As a Disneyland fan, I usually run into two types of people:

    The ones who just try and fit as many rides and attractions in as they can, fastpasses and stuff like that. It's almost like they cram.

    Or the ones who just enjoy the experience. They don't have a hurry to get on, aren't trying to get on as many times as possible, but just enjoy the entire experience.

    I used to be more of the first, cram as many rides in the time I had. But after awhile, I realized that I was missing certain pleasures by just cramming instead of enjoying..Of course I enjoyed the rides, but it was more about getting on them as much as I could. I was with one friend who had me go on Splash Mountain 9 times in a row, until closing...

    So what kinda Disney person are you? Do you cram in the rides, or just pace yourself and enjoy and not have as much priority on ride fitting?

    I am kind of a mix. I try to cram in as many rides possibly while also enjoying the experience. In 2009 I will be living in Socal, and I will be a frequent (and I mean frequent) DL visitor. Since I will be going to DL at least twice a month, I will probably take things a little slower.

      I can ride on both sides of the fence. I have learned to go with the flow of the guests I'm with. When I go to Disney World, I'll be a crammer. Since I work 6 miles from DLand, I can take my time.

        depends on how long you are there for and how far away you live. Also how crowded it is. Sometimes when it is dead the story BECOMES 'We rode Indy 15 times and Splash 12 and Space x....." but they may not have set out to do that.

          It really depends on my mood when I get there.. sometimes I'm in the mood to really get in as many rides as I can.. other times.. I'm just there to walk around and soak it all in and really notice the little things that make the park so magical..

          But for the most part.. I'm there for the experience of it all.. especially when it comes to bringing other people.. I'm there to make sure they get the full Disney experience whether it's all the rides.. all the shows.. or just walking around..

            before AP it was all about cramming...with AP it's all about the leisurely pace and enjoyment. Sometimes we only go on two rides all day.

              When you live far away craming is a must, if you can get in as often as you like why cram? I cram, I have to so I can see and do more before I have to leave.

                Since I usually go for two days at a time, I try to cram the first day and enjoy the second. The experience, however, is always more important than craming everything in. I just love being there. Craming becomes more of a priority if I'm with someone who hasn't been in a long time or ever!

                  There is so much more to Disneyland than the rides!
                  We have found we have the best days when we only get in a few rides, and take in all the park has to offer.
                  All the shows, Parades, cookies baking, musical chair playing.
                  So many things that make up the Disneyland experience.

                    I'm not much of a line waiter so I tend to just go there to relax. Sometimes, especially during the holidays, I'll go with the sole purpose of just being in the environment. If I pass by a line that's short, then great; I'll go. But I don't want to feel stressed when I'm there, so I take my time. Plus I know the ride will be there next time I come (unless Al Lutz doesn't give us a heads up), so I'm not going to cram anything in.

                    I said...Dang this looks too good to be true...

                    It's a nice day when you wake up in
                    Disneyland...

                      The AP's have slowed our pace WAY down, which is better, I love riding the rides, but I also appreciate just sitting on a bench with an ice cream cone and watching the world go by.:ap::whistling

                        I wish I could fall into the second group, but I'm definitely in the first for the time being. I don't live in SoCal (yet), so trips to the park are relatively rare...a few years apart, generally. I absolutely love the overall atmosphere of the park, and I adore the mental image of me being an AP holder who can wander into the park if I have a few extra hours and just sit, take some photos, maybe go for a quick spin on Indy. That'd be great, but I just can't do that yet. So in order to experience the rides I miss, I do try to fit as many as I can into my trips...without becoming too stressed, that is.

                          Hi, my name is KISSman and I am a compulsive ride crammer and I need help. :blush:

                          Ok, I don't think I need help, but I'm definitely a crammer because I'm much happier when my day consists of a healthy helping of attractions!

                          When I'm in Disneyland, there's rarely a lot of aimless wandering around without having some idea of what's next.

                          For me, the way I know I've had a great day is when I count how many times I was able to get on Pirates and The Haunted Mansion. When the number is at or above 2-each, I know it's been a fun time. That's usually the best barometer for me.

                            With Ridemax, I could cram and still have plenty of time to rest. THIRD OPTION PLEASE!

                            Now, I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a nightmare Fantasmic!
