    The Short List: Ten Attractions, 3 Meals, 3 Shops

    Something to chat about...if you were going to the resort and were restricted say to experiencing 10 attractions (you could ride or see the 10 as many times as you liked), 3 meals at 3 different locations, and only going in 3 shops...what would they be? Just a different way of tackling it, and I thought the numbers would make a interesting criteria....not enough to do everything at the resort, certainly, but a good sampling of what is available.

    My ten attractions:

    Haunted Mansion
    Pirates
    Tower of Terror
    Snow White
    Alice in Wonderland
    Enchanted Tiki Room
    Midway Mania
    Matterhorn
    Big Thunder
    Disneyland Railroad

    My three meals would be at the following:

    Blue Bayou
    Cafe Orleans
    Napa Rose

    Shops:

    World of Disney in DTD
    Disneyana on Main Street
    Pirates shop/courtyard annex

    Re: The Short List: Ten Attractions, 3 Meals, 3 Shops

    If I were going to the resort... well, I am, tomorrow, with my family. Here's the most likely attractions we'll do (asterisks indicate that I may have to do some serious persuading...)

    Attractions:

    Space Mtn
    Indy
    Peter Pan
    Alice (If it were me without the kids, I'd replace this with Screamin')
    Big Thunder
    Midway Mania
    Soarin' Over California
    Matterhorn
    Small World (if it were open)
    DL Railroad*

    Restaurants:

    French Market
    Whitewater Snacks
    Bengal BBQ* (actually, that's just for me, the kids wouldn't eat there)

    Stores:

    Any pin store, but most likely Frontierland
    The book store on Main St. (well, that's for me, not the kids)
    The Midway Mania store (I guess I have to count that one, otherwise we can't go on Midway Mania.)

    (hmm, maybe tomorrow night or Wednesday morning I'll reply with an update as to how close our actual day compared to my list here...)

    Discussion is welcome too certainly....looking back at my list, I'd swap probably Brennan's for the Napa Rose, on second thought. I am disturbed by the lack of Mansion on a few lists heh personally...but to each their own....

    Re: The Short List: Ten Attractions, 3 Meals, 3 Shops

    In no real order, and assuming that I happened to have admission to both parks and no monetary concerns for dining and shopping:

    1. Indiana Jones
    2. Space Mountain
    3. Pirates of the Caribbean
    4. Haunted Mansion
    5. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    6. Matterhorn
    7. Splash Mountain (maybe)
    8. Disneyland Railroad
    9. Toy Story Midway Mania (gotta give it a first try)
    10. California Screamin' (not because it's any sort of Imagineering masterpiece, but because it's been a long time since I last rode it)

    1. Blue Bayou
    2. Golden Horseshoe (also been a while)
    3. Rancho Del Zocalo

    I don't do much shopping, but the Star Trader and Main Street's music shop are both possibilities.

    I'm disturbed by the lack of Mansion on my own list. Probably that simply reflects that I've been on it quite a bit lately, and am wouldn't mind skipping it next time. It really is one of the best. :-)
