I'm the only one in my family willing to ride everything, at least once. Suffice it to say the last time we were at WDW, I got more than a few dirty looks as I made others line up for Winnie the Pooh, Small World, & Country Bear Jamboree.
I voted that I only ride the thrill rides, which isn't true, but it best fit. (and i don't consider any rides at the DLR true "thrill" rides) But I don't ride all the rides, like i skip the canal boats and dumbo and Go gadget coaster and whinnie the pooh, ect. I ride both slow rides like Haunted Mansion, and faster rides like California Screemin'. I guess I get the big ones, and a few smaller ones like Mr. Toad and Buzz Lightyear. However I will ride Indiana Jones at least 10-20 times a trip and POTC only once.
I picked everything, but the truth is it's some faster, some slower. A couple of rides I'd like to go on, but health won't allow me. Since I have an AP, I don't feel the pressure to jam as much as possible into my day, so I try to take in the scenery and enjoy the ambiance, as well.
I like to ride my favorites. And every trip is a little different... it used to be our "thing" (my husband and I) to ride the teacups once every trip at night and make ridiculous faces and take pictures so it would look like we were on a much scarier and intense ride than we were.... but now we always seem to skip it... sometimes we hit a lot of "slow" rides, sometimes its "E ticket" all the way... every trip depends
i too, agree that it depends on the trip. in past trips, i usually only hit the E-ticket rides, and skip the littles (alice, dumbo, storybook etc) but for this trip, i'm taking my 4 year old for the first time. we're gonna ride everything she's tall enough for, re-ride everything she likes, and throw in a couple of mommy's faves (splash, pirates). rides are my favorite part, although i do like to just look around at the ambiance and 'magic' of the park as well.
I didn't see a description for me. I ride almost all the rides, except for a few that scare me. However, I also enjoy all the other aspects of the park, such as the shows, food, atmosphere, history, and great photo opportunities.
I'm the type who races around to all the thrill rides, timing myself efficiently to max out on fast passes. However, I'm attempting to transition to the phase of walking around to enjoy the atmosphere. I took the chance to do this for the first time on Saturday and it was a welcome change. I left the park really relaxed without the painful, tired legs.
I can't imagine going to the park only to ride Thrill rides... I can do that at Knotts or Six Flags anytime... I like to go to Disneyland to be immersed in a story and a theme to escape from life. A good ride is a good ride whether fast or slow.. I like diversity.
