    3. Indiana Jones
    4. Tower of Terror (once inside the hotel at least)
    5. It's Tough to be a Bug (another attraction I should add to my top 20! Dang it!)

    How about favorite counter service meal??
    I love the chicken sun-dried tomato pasta from Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta (I had to look up the exact name!) and of course the corn dog from Disneyland.

    Favorite Counter Service Meal?
    Sourdough bread bowl with clam chowder in Pacific Wharf. I will eat one of those even when I'm not that hungry. They are so worth waiting in line for 20min.
    I also got a pulled pork sandwich at the River Belle Terrace that I liked a lot. And of course, a corn dog is always a good bet.

    And counter service food item: the hot roast beef sandwich at Jolly Holiday (caramelized onion, horseradish aioli, white cheddar) and with the house-made chips. It's quite delicious.

    Top 5 queues:
    1. Jungle Cruise (Of course you include upstairs)
    2. Radiator Springs Racers
    3. Star Tours
    4. Haunted Mansion (up to the elevator)

    You have to remember that the queue has to prepare you for the attraction and immerses you to into the story

    I like the Jungle Cruise queue, too. It has a lot of little details that are cool to look at.

    Re: Disneyland and DCA: Your Top Picks

    Top five queues?
    I was having trouble ordering these, so here are my top five in no particular order:
    Tower of Terror
    Indiana Jones
    Star Tours
    Space Mountain (indoor section)
    Radiator Springs Racers

    I mainly based the list off of which queues really accomplish the task of immersing me in the story and allow me to believe that I entered their world. All five queues listed above really make me believe that I'm there and bring a certain indescribable magic to the experience. Honorable mentions to Roger Rabbit, Luigi's Flying Tires, Big Thunder, Jungle Cruise, and Splash Mountain.

    Favorite counter service meal?
    I don't actually know. I can't think of one particular meal that really stands out as my favorite. I do know that I like having breakfast at the Tomorrowland Terrace, not so much for the food quality, but because it's become somewhat of a tradition in our family and I really relish that time together. It's kind of the time where we sit and think, "We're here! We're in Disneyland!" as we sip our coffee and let our excitement build for the day that we are about to experience. So, yeah, I guess that's my favorite counter service meal.

    That sounds really good. I'll have to try that next time I'm in the park!

    I tried this sandwich a couple months ago and it was every but delicious as it sounds! I'm tempted to order it again on our next trip, but trying to try all new foods every trip.
