    Must do/have on each visit to DL/DCA???

    I know that there was a thread about rituals (always enter through the tunnel on the left, etc...) on each trip here in the past, but this is kind of different.

    What must you do or have on each trip to DL or DCA to make it "complete"?

    We make four trips down per year and always have a meal at Blue Bayou and Goofy's Kitchen on each trip (just not on the same day!). Also, we let our kids decide which ride will be the first and the last of the trip.

    As well as...

    First stop once in the Park...Disneyana.

    Pineapple slice from the fruit cart.

    Dole Whip and churro's at least once during the trip.

    Pirates and HM at least once every trip.

    A relaxing rest on the porch on Main St to people watch.

    Last stop on the way out of the Park...Disneyana.

    Check on our Magical Brick (like anyone would want to steal it!!!)

    Award Wieners at DCA as well as the swirled ice cream for dessert.

    I'm sure that there are more without even realizing it, but those are the basics.

    I try to get one picture that I haven't shot.
    "What single word is the name of a magazine, a cereal, a board game, and a never-ending series of soul-crushing disappointments which slowly leech away your hope and idealism until you are nothing more than a bitter husk of a man?"

    must check the line for splash mountain, and if it's too long, must complain for an hour.

    Always always, Fried Chicken from French Market.

    When the park first opens go do all the Fantasyland rides you want, it is dead for the first hour.

    Great items so far...Keep 'em coming!

    We also try to do something new each time. Either a ride, a store or a food stand that we haven't tried before. That is getting harder now, so that is why I figured I start this thread. More ideas for our up-coming trips.

    Thanks!

    If it's right in the morning then I always go to the Matterhorn first but if it's
    more towards the afternoon I get a fastpass for Indiana Jones first

    I used to have my must-dos. Now I go too frequently to bother

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Dole Whip and a Mickey Pretzel. Oh, and those little chocolate-covered Mickey Pretzels they sell in a bag. YUM!

    Free samples at the Pacific Wharf! Nothing like a toasty tortilla from the factory!

    Riding the ToT several times in a row to see if the drop sequence is random....jury is still out, but it is fun to ride repeatedly.

    Coffee at La Brea. Thank God it isn't far.

    Churros...oh wait, someone said that.

    Getting a tattoo at Downtown, er, wait, that isn't an option.

    Yet.

    I've NEVER been able to do that! I've only been able to go through Sleeping Beauty's Castle!
