    In the line for Tower of Terror there are a LOT of goodies that are callbacks to the old Twilight Zone TV show, including the chalk portal from Little Girl Lost and the camera from Most Unusual Camera.

    My favorite piece is huge and easy to spot, but the truck in the queue for Indy is the original truck used in Raiders of the Lost Ark... If you look at the front bumper area, you can see golf balls that were attached for the stunt actors to use as grips/handholds if they needed them.

    When in line at Peter Pan look across the plaza at the window over the Snow White attraction. When in line for Snow White, try to grab the apple on the statue.

    At Star Tours, there are lots of old ST things and Star Wars things to look for, pay attention to the details.

    In Indy, once inside, grab the colomns of bamboo and pull the rope that the sign says not to.

    At HM read the headstones.

    At Small World try to hit it on the quarter hour marks and watch the clock. And watch if a train is coming by.

    Of course with most queues, there are lots of things to read, some about the attractions, some just punny.

    The cracks in the ground

    I just like to lean somewhere and listen to the background music. Especially in Adventureland and the Tower of Terror. it's nice to hear those classic 30's oldies playing to a modern audience.

    Another one: the bookshelf in Toad Hall, right behind the CM who is loading the cars, is hilarious. Lots of twists on old classics there.

    Lots of neat little details in the Jungle Cruise line, especially if it runs upstairs

    Some gags and jokes in the Roger Rabbit line too, including cameo's from the movie's characters

    You could also just people watch,

    my favorites are
    Grandparent who is more excited than their child
    Over tired child who needs a nap
    Mother who didn't want a child on her smart phone

    and my all time favorite

    Child who is the perfect mix of tired, excited, and full of sugary foods about to blow

    Have fun

    Not actually in line, but look at the lamp in the window of the firestation on mainstreet, and give Uncle Walt a little remember.

    Also walking down Main Street and reading the tributes in the windows to people important to Walt and Disneyland. You can also do this riding the Omnibus.

    Look for the original ticket booths, like at Alice and Storybook Land. Look for the Skyway Chalet while at Casey Jr.

    Hidden Mickey - Historical fiction about Walt that mixes action and mystery with time travel and fantasy! Tweens to adults will enjoy these novels. And now, three gamebooks to play in Disneyland, DCA and WDW Magic Kingdom!

    While in Mickey's House, look for the hidden Donald Duck on the piano.
