  • Your Own Little Spot

    As I was enjoying my chocolate muffin and hot chocoalte on the porch in Main Street this morning, I began to ponder does anyone else have their own little spot where they like to sit and take in the day? Do you have a special chair somewhere or a particular bench you enjoy? I love sitting on the bench on the porch in Main Street watching all the people go by in the morning before work...

      We like to sit at Whitewater, outside where you can see through the fence into the park and watch people as we eat. It's cool, calm, and quiet, for the most part.

        The bench inside City Hall where you can hear everyone's complaint.

        Bring some cheese to go along with everyone's whine.

          Ever since I learned about it, I've taken a liking to sitting on the steps of the staircase in the Court of Angels if I need a quiet spot to sit down at. For people watching I like the teacup outside of the Mad Hatter. :]

            Many years ago when the Welsh's shop was on Main Street I used to get a Grape Popsicle and sit on the bench on the porch and watch the people going up and down Main Street. I always waited until the sun had gone down behind the East Side buildings so I could sit there without the sun glaring right into my eyes. Great spot that is still there, but sadly the Popsicles are gone. When I can I still seek that bench out and if no one is sitting up there, I grab the bench and spend a few relaxing moment just people watching.

              It USED to be in the courtyard inside of Disney Gallery. I'd sit there, listening to the fountain splashing, and write postcards to my friends and family. I would bring a snack, or sometimes not. Sometimes I would head there after wandering the Gallery, and needed peace and quiet (it was SO nice and quiet in there). I hardly saw anyone else in there.

              Don't know where my NEW little spot will be, but, there will be one. That's been it for 20 years. Sigh.

                My spot also no longer exists. Just to the left of the Estage Jewelry Shop in NOS there used to be always a round table and two chairs positioned under the display windows. My friend Kate and I would always go there every Friday night, get a couple cups of coffee from the French Market and sit at OUR SPOT for hours. It was great. I really miss that.

                I guess I don't have a quiet spot anymore. Though I oftentimes like getting away to the Hearthstone Lounge and getting an espresso. It's usually nice and quiet there.

                  I also like grabbing a churro and sitting at the Court of Angels. So peaceful...

                    One of the benches around the fountain in front of the NOS train station. Grab a box of popcorn and people watch. You can see the train, the ROA/Twain/Columbia, HM, and listen to the jazz music at the French Market.

                      Nice and quite.

                      Also cool and refreshing, and makes me look cool.

                        Same here.

                        Also at a table between Riverbelle and Stage Door, next to the walkway. Great for people watching and you get the Rivers as a backdrop.

                        Also, the area in front of Matterhorn on one of those benches.

                        I'm all about people watching when I need a sit down break.

                            During my trip there in July, I found that I tended to gravitate toward the Snow White wishing well, and the benches next to City Hall, by the restrooms. Great place to watch all of Main Street, and people watch as people entered and exited the park.

                              I am one of those who enjoyed sitting on the planter in front of the J.C. and just enjoying Adventureland. There is also that smaller plaza next to Aladdin when Aladdin is closed. I also love Tiki's garden when it wasn't overly crowded. Of course the other spot was always enjoying an early morning hot chocolate and newspaper in NOS prior to the actual stores opening.. Mark Twain when it is empty is another one and there used to be a couple spots on TSI before it became a ZOO.

                              As a CM I found the greatest amount of solitude on an empty J.C. boat. Even though the animal noises are recordings, there is something about the noise, the boat engine, the plants and the sound of rushing water over a waterfall... no matter how PISSED I was, that was a chance for me to relax.

                                I'd have to say on Tom Sawyer's Island watching splash mountain, people getting soaked at the bottom.

                                  A little outside the park boundaries, but when I was small, we would usually have breakfast at the Harbor Blvd Mc Donald's and we would always sit by the front windows to eat so we can see the Disneyland Monorail System make their runs in and out of Disneyland. It seemed to set this mood of excitement for the day.

                                    I like the steps by the snow white wishing well, myself.
                                    My other spot used to be the benches along side the exit to SM and the ones at the exit. But now I ride that ride

                                    And how I picked you up and everything changed

                                    I knew you'd feel the same things...

                                        hmmmmm I believe it is the big and grand staircase tucked away in a corner of NOS.
                                        You know it kind of curves up to a balcony that you can't go on.
