Magnolia Park is probably my favorite place in the entire resort because it just feels so calm with the jazz music playing in the background and my favorite attraction is just right across the way- Haunted Mansion.
My longer than usual, recent visit to the Disneyland Resort gave me the opportunity to finally visit some of these out of the way quiet places. I don't have a favorite, but I do love, to just sometimes stop, take a seat and watch the people scurrying by to their next ride or attraction.
I like sitting way back at the far end of the top deck of Hungry Bear, along the water side. The bottom level is just a tad dark for my taste, and it's always a treat to see the train come by. I especially like bringing out of town guests to that spot, and delighting in their pleasant surprise when the train steams by. It really feels like you're out in nature there...
From the list I chose Tom Sawyer Island just because there are lots of places you can go there where you can sit on a bench (or rock) and stare at the river. Plus it's one of the least crowded areas in the park.
