    Attractions Worth Spending time on...

    All the E-ticket rides tend to overshadow other little things at Disneyland..
    are these attractions worth the time? :

    Catching a movie at the Main Street Cinema?
    Disneyland®: The First 50 Magical Years?
    Innoventions?
    Tiki Room?



    at DCA:

    Disney Animation?

    Re: Attractions Worth Spending time on...

    Of what you mention, I'd recommend ducking into the Main Street Cinema for viewing some of the old cartoons...it won't take long, though, and there is no seating...It's good, but basically just a go in and spend a few minutes type of a thing. Tiki Room I highly recommend, it's a fast-paced show, a good place to rest your feet, and very signifigant in the Park's history.

    The Cinema is a nice place to relax for a few minutes, but nothing impressive. The 50th exhibit is actually pretty good, I'd recommend it if you have time. Innoventions I wouldn't bother with, it has two bad pre-shows and ends up taking a long time for what you get out of it. Tiki room is a classic and definitely worth seeing, not quite a must see in my book, but right up there. Animation is actually really cool, one of the better non-ride attractions at DCA especially if you or your party are fans of animation. Many fun interactive displays and some nice little shows too.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    I say take some time and go to the Animation Academy in DCA. It was so much fun, my husband and boys went 4 to 5 different times.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    50, Tiki and Animation Academy.
    Main St Cinema is cool to duck into... you don't have to stay in there long.
    The house of the future is worth the foray into Innoventions as well.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I highly recommend the Animation building at DCA. It's one of the few great attractions at DCA actually.

    All the attractions you mentioned are worthwhile for at least one time. Except Innovations. Stay clear from that mess.

    Yes it is. It took the place of "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln" during the 50th. Lincoln was supposed to be brought back a wile ago, but it never happened. It will close to reinstall Mr. Lincoln on the 16th and will be closed for about a month I believe. Check Al's latest update for more info.

    One thing you definately have to do is hitch a ride on the Mark Twain or Columbia. It's so cool being able to go on the River of America - especially if the Disneyland Railroad happens to be going by. It's also pretty cool to be able to waive to people at TS Island.

    everything you listed besides innoventions is worth the time and the space it occupys, i think!

    I agree.
    Tiki, whoever it is "geared" for, is a classic, and enjoyed by both the adults and children I know.
    Likewise, the Main St. Cinema gives a classic connection to where it all started.
    Besides, what are you going to fit in that area anyways if you take it out? It would probably end up another parcel of unoccupied valuable Disney "land".
    Innoventions, on the other hand, is not worth the land it is sitting on in my opinion. There could be something done with that area that could be so much better. Innoventions has run its course as far as I'm concerned.
