I read a thread on here a couple of years ago about traditions and rituals for entering/leaving the park and just things that absolutely don't leave the park without doing. I don't know how long it's been since some of you have partaken in suxh a thread and I loved some of the responses that I read couple of years ago, so I'll kick it off:
Every 1st day in the park we enter through the left tunnel, tap the right hand side of the tunnel wall (twice) (Been doing that since my first visit to DL in 1975. My mom thought it was odd that I did that when I was 3. She thought it was really odd when I did again at the age of 5 since I couldn't possibly remember the trip at 3. I don't actually remember much from that trip at the age of 3 at all. Been tapping the wall ever since my first trip) and hop on the RR once all the way around the park and back again to New Orleans Square to begin the day (been doing it since 1975 when I was 3.
On the last day of the trip, we always exit out the right hand tunnel and tap the left hand side of the wall on our way out. One other thing that's a little embarrassing (considering I'm 38 years old). I always leave the park with atleast a tear welled up in my eye as we reach the end of Main Street and out of the park. I've only let it trickle down once on the last 6 years, though. So I think I might still have some tough guy left in me. LOL
