    Re: Which rides and attractions you skip?

    There are only two attractions that I will officially skip: the Canoe's and Nemo. One is too much work and the other is too closed in. Did ride Nemo once and was not at all happy with the experience. Lesson learned!

    Everything else I try my best to get to, but if I don't make it- no worries. There's always next time.

    Space Mountain: This is a maybe. It depends on if the others in my party want to ride. It's just a bit pointless for me because I take off my glasses to ride stuff that goes this fast. It's just waiting in line for 45min to get wind the face in the dark for me.

    Dr. Fink, I wear glasses and get to enjoy "seeing" Space Mountain and BTMRR too. I bought a pair of Croakies to slip over the ear pieces on my glasses, then slip them even tighter for a snug fit. I don't miss a thing anymore.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll look into some ear pieces and straps for my trip in May.

    Re: Which rides and attractions you skip?

    Personally, I skip Star Wars, California Screamin', Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain, Silly Symphonies and the Fun Wheel. All are motion sickness inducing.
    Note on the Fun Wheel: I don't get motion sickness on this one strangely, but my wife and daughter don't like to ride it, so I stay off too.

    I definitely never never skip space mountain it's hard to understand why you do. In my opinion it's fun to go fast thought the dark with wind rushing through your face

    Re: Which rides and attractions you skip?

    Because of problems with spinning, I have never ridden the Rocket Jets, and haven't been on Tea Cups since I was about 10. We usually don't get to ToonTown or Critter Country unless we want to ride the canoes. Also haven't been on the Columbia since my teen years. Now hubby is in scooter, so that one is out anyway. Depends on lines for other rides which we go on. Other than the ones mentioned, I'm pretty open

    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!

    I tend to skip Space Mountain as well. I think it's highly overrated and would much rather go on Big Thunder or the Matterhorn where there is some actual show elements. But that's just me.

    Re: Which rides and attractions you skip?

    We usually skip:

    At Disneyland:
    All of Toontown
    Storybook Canal
    Mr. Toad
    Peter Pan! (We LOVE it but we usually skip because of the lines )
    Nemo
    Innoventions
    Starcade
    Buzz (I've noticed we have started skipping this. I think it just isn't as exciting as it once was to us or our kids. It might be because there is now TSMM in DCA)
    Astro Orbiter (line moves too slow)
    Mr. Lincoln
    Main St. cinema
    The Columbia
    Tom Sawyer's Island

    At DCA we usually skip:

    The Muppets (unless there is a movie preview in there)
    Monsters Inc.
    Aladdin
    Playhouse
    All of Bug's land (except sometimes daughter does the bumper cars)
    Luigi's Tires
    Mater's
    The Funwheel, Zephyr, Jellyfish, Boardwalk Games
    Grizzly River Rapids (don't like to get soaked)
    World of Color! (We like it when we can see it but have decided that it is just too crowded and the viewing area wasn't planned right. You can almost never see what is going on. Too many heads, arms, and ipads in the way).

    Our musts at Disneyland (trip is not complete if we don't do it)

    Splash Mtn., Space Mtn., BTMRR, Pirates, Tea Cups, Small World, Canoes, Mark Twain, Disney Railroad, Tarzan's Treehouse, Billy Hill and Hillbillies, Cafe Orleans, Fireworks, soaking in the atmosphere of Main St. and whole west side of the park.

    Our musts at DCA

    Animation Building, TOT, Soarin', Screamin', TSMM, the Silly Symphony Swings!, RSR, and enjoying Buena Vista St.

    #1 attraction I wish they would bring back: The Skyway

    Re: Which rides and attractions you skip?

    I tend to skip the Mad Tea Party. It doesn't mean I won't stand around and watch it once in a while but it is one of those "been on it once" type of things. When we went to Disneyland last year we skipped out on Star Tours. I've done it at WDW and to be honest that ride along with Mission Space at Epcot aren't my favourites. I am not a huge fan of simulator rides. They have one at Sea World Orlando too which you can ride to get to the Polar bear enclosure but to me those things just throw off my balance. Borderline headaches for me. I know Star Tours had a refurb and all but the line was too long for me to check out.

    Also not sure I'll do Finding Nemo Voyage again. You're awfully cramped in there.

    Last time I went on Nemo I got stuck in the very front of the submarine for what seemed like 10min before the doors even shut because there was a massive family with about 6 kids that couldn't seem to figure out how to board properly. Then the kids kept sneezing the whole ride.

    Never again.

    I used to skip Tow Mater, but we recently rode it and now I LOVE it. We also recently rode Luigi's Flying Tires... once was enough.

    Friday I rode the swinging car on the ferris wheel - NEVER AGAIN.

    Thank you to Poisonedapples for my awesome signature!

    Re: Which rides and attractions you skip?

    Good choices, but I love Space Moubtain. I like that you can't see where you are going.
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).
