    Re: What attractions/rides have you never experienced?

    I forgot about Pixie Hollow. Something about waiting over an hour to meet Tinkerbell for 30 seconds was never appealing to me.

    I have done the Princess Faire, though. I met Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty. It was only a 45min wait with a bunch of screaming 4-year old girls in costume.
    I wish Frozen would have never been made.

    Just find a happy place and you'll be fine. I had a Coke and a Churro when we got in line so I entered in a fairly good mood. By the time we got to the princesses I was pretty sour, though.

    Pixie Hollow is BEAUTIFUL at night, after the meet & greet is over and everyone's gone away. The lights on the fountain, the Celtic music (and the lights that blink in time to it) and the atmosphere are great. Walk through then.

    For me, my list is pretty short. I've never been on the Columbia because I've never seen it out when I've been at the park; it's always the Mark Twain instead. Ditto with the canoes; I always seem to be there when the canoes aren't running or I'm not feeling well enough to ride.

    At DCA, I haven't been on King Triton's Carousel or any of the Bug's Land kiddie rides, but I've done everything else.

    Stepped foot on Tom Sawyer's Island, not getting the kicks dirty. Nor have I ever had a desire to walk through any Toontown house.

    Re: What attractions/rides have you never experienced?

    Surprisingly I have done every ride in Disneyland / DCA. But as for rides that were closed down before I got to ride them would have to be Rocket Rods. I remember hearing it and having all my friends in the time wait in line for it, but I never did because I was "scared". Then when I finally had the courage, It was down. then never opened again :/ Oh well!

    I haven't been to Tom Sawyer's Island since it became Pirate's Lair.

    I guess there is more I haven't done than I realized.

    It might not be the only ferris wheel in the world, it's one of the few with those (terrifying) swinging gondolas, so I wouldn't exactly call it "unoriginal", although the wait is typically long. Unless you were talking about the non-swinging gondolas, but in my experience, they always seem to have a relatively short wait. And even from the typical, non-swinging gondolas, the wheel offers a really neat perspective of DCA and Dineyland that you can't experience anywhere else. It's fun to slowly climb into the sky and see all these attractions become smaller and smaller and see more and more of the park and the city come into view. I like looking for buildings in Disneyland that are peeking out through the trees.

    HOW COULD THAT BE?! Those three rides alone are worth the price of admission IMHO. When you go to DL again, please do me a favour and go on those rides, at least Space Mountain. You will see what you've been missing.

    Guess I need to add those to my list too. I like playing video games but never felt the desire to play them at arcades. Can't bring myself to spend the money on those Boardwalk games either. Plus I've seen a bunch of those stuffed Dumbos and fishing Mickeys they give as prizes at Goodwill for 99 cents.

    Most of these I still have no desire to ride/see. Although, concluding the list is the Red Car Trolley on Buena Vista Street, which regretfully, I didn't ride when I was there several months ago and would love to ride during my next visit.
    What you just posted right here is exactly what I haven't done either. I have no desire to ride them whatsoever

    Re: What attractions/rides have you never experienced?

    I made a point of riding every ride at Disneyland this year, including new-to-me Columbia which was fascinating. To think that people actually sailed around the world, I repeat, AROUND THE WORLD ON THE OCEAN in a ship that exact size. It's mind boggling thinking that just looking at it but actually being on it gives a whole new perspective. You can walk from front to back and above and below decks in mere seconds, and that's your entire world. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN. Sakes alive.

    I can't vouch for meet-and-greets but I accidentally walked through Pixie Hollow at night and saw a lovely water show and wandered into the Coronation Ceremony or whatever the stage show at the Princess Faire was. I used to folk dance so the little royal dance lesson and maypole part was kind of nice. I wanted to get out on the floor but that would have just been weird. Ha ha.

    I've done almost all of DCA, except Flik's Flyers, Tuck and Roll, Red Car Trolley, Jumpin' Jellyfish and Grizzly River Run. I was there when Superstar Limo was in existence but never saw it open and I really wish I'd been able to go through at least once.

    A ride I would normally pass but absolutely could not resist is King Triton's Carousel of the Sea, which I like to call "The Technicolor Twirler." Man, I haven't seen such color clash since the psychedelic-influenced children's programming of the early 70s. I have ridden on the back of a purple whale. And I am not insane. ;-)

    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.

    They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based onÖ if something is new, I reject it immediately because itís frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.
