    When you bring a "newbie" to the park...

    I love brining people to the park who have never been to disneyland or people who have never experienced the magic of the 50th celebration. i ESPECIALLY love taking them to watch the fireworks and see their smiles grow from ear to ear. The looks on their face are priceless!!

    What do you like to do when you bring someone new to Disneyland?

    Hearing the "Weeeeeeeee!" when we take off on Soarin'.

    Hearing my nephew say "That was the best ride so far!" as he gets off every ride!

    Introducing them to the taste of Red Wagon corn dogs.

    Not telling them about the drop on Pirates and hearing the screams of delight.

    Re: When you bring a "newbie" to the park...

    If it's their first time, I let them decide everything. I want them to discover the park themselves. The most information I give about anything is:
    "yeah, it's good", or
    "meh, whatever", or
    "Oh for the love of God! Anything but It's A Small World!"

    ...hearing them say at the end of the day, in a disappointed voice: "Well, i guess you can't do everything in one day." Then responding back: "Well, i guess we are going to have to come back."

    What's wrong with -- It's A Small World?

    It's just like POTC with a different song, and different scenes!

    But other than that it's almost the same.

    If I had any desire whatsoever to hear that song, I would just go outside and wait for an ice cream truck.

    This is basically what I like to do too, but I'll tell them that somethings not worth going on, like Small World, but sometimes they insist and I do enjoy saying "I told you so" afterward.

    Re: When you bring a "newbie" to the park...

    Mostly I love being able to navigate the park. If I have a newbie, I let them lead the way. If a line is too long, we can get faspasses and go do something else. I like being able to plot the best line to cover the park most efficiently. As opposed to going to Space Mountain , walking to Splash Mtn, then back across the park for Buzz.

    I know the best places to eat, I know where the bathrooms are, etc. It's kind of fun to go with somebody who doesn't know the park.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

    I tend to let them take the lead in everything. Sometimes I end up discovering something I've missed over the years.

    Re: When you bring a "newbie" to the park...

    I love seeing everything through new eyes. The fireworks, the Castle reveal as you come through the Town Square, the thrill of a flying elephant...it's all magical and helping/seeing people discover it for the first time is even moreso.

    Heck, I've even taken people who aren't die-hards and seldom go to the park and have then been told that they've never had as much fun at DL as they did that day with me.
