    Taking Newbies to Disneyland!

    I find it really fun when I get to take friends who don't go to disneyland very often to go experience the MAGIC. somethings that i HAVE to do with newbies is POTC, Space Mtn, Splash Mtn, Fireworks. Those to me are the FOUR most important things in my book with newbies. i just love seeing their jaws DROP wen they see fireworks or when they come off space so HAPPIE. haha wat do u guyz HAVE to do with newbies?

    Add the Haunted Mansion - a real classic. Don't forget the Tiki Room also.

    You forgot Big Thunder!

    Also, get some churros.
    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

    Everything. That's why it takes, depending on how busy it is, 4 days or so ...... including a day or two of RideMax .......

    Disneyland is special to everyone for different reasons. You don't want to deprive a newbie of discovering what is special to them because you only showed them what is special to you.

    I would add Indy as well just because most of the people I have taken have been there, but not since they were a little kid (pre-Indy). For the most part though, I try to fit all the thrill rides and classics in, including the Fantasyland rides (to be rode after 11pm when it's not so busy). Taking a newbie is fun for me because I love the place so much, but it sure wipes me out considering it's been over the course of one day! Not enough in my opinion to completely appreciate the place.

    Ultimately, I try to let them decide since I consider it "their" day. I just end up being the tour guide.

    Re: Taking Newbies to Disneyland!

    I brought my g/f for her first visit last week. the first thing we did POTC, HM, Indy, and Splash all in that order. Then a dole whip. We didnt get there till about 4 o clock. We pretty much did everything imaginable over the next four days.

    Every time I have brought new people, I make POTC my priority for the first ride, simply because it was the first ride I went on as a young lad.

    I love taking new people to DL. The best way I've found to do it is to go along and not say a single word about anything.

    Let them lead the day. You end up re-discovering all sorts of things you rarely pay attention to.

    Re: Taking Newbies to Disneyland!

    One of my favorite things to do is to take adults on the dark rides in Fantasyland, especially Peter Pan. I love to see their faces before the rides "like great she's dragging me on baby rides" and then see their face coming off of Peter Pan, or hear them giggling coming off of Mr. Toads! Love it!!

    That is such a great idea. I'm taking someone who hasn't been in 11 years, this October. I always have a very firm schedule I keep when I show up.. ride Indy, ride POTC, get my apple fritters and Mint Julep, then ride HM and Splash, head back to BTRR and into Fantasyland etc. etc... but thats a great idea to let him be the guide on our first day. We have enough days (5) that I can let him run the show.

    Thanks for the idea!
