    Re: What do you guys do in lines at the parks?

    I will often yell at the FP people to stop cutting, then yell at the CMs for letting them cut.
    (Disclosure: I AM KIDDING.)

    When I've gone with groups we'd play games. One was you start with the name of a song, next player names a song with one of the words in the previous song, repeat until exhausted. Another was a pyramid-style game in which words (names of people, films, geography, etc.) are written on pieces of paper where your partner would have to guess the word based on clues you give.

    Then there is "guess the origin of the other guest with the heavy accent." Could be in the US or outside the US.

    Re: What do you guys do in lines at the parks?

    If I'm there with someone else I'm talking to them. If I am there alone, I'm either texting, playing a game, reviewing the photos I've taken that day or reading.

    Re: What do you guys do in lines at the parks?

    That's when I pop out my snacks, people-watch and get on my phone (social media, of course). I sometimes strike up a convo with other park guests, usually AP's. I've learned ALOT when it comes to AP benefits from them.

    Often, I'll strike up a conversation with a complete stranger. It's amazing how nice people can be.

    If I'm in a group, sometimes we'll play 'I spy'.

    I guess I'm one of the few that still use an iPod touch to listen to music!

    Pretty much this.

    That's what I was going to say, when I'm by myself I almost always start up conversations and I'm an introvert.

    It's fun and I made a new friend a couple weeks ago and exchanged numbers.

    I wish ALL the parents in line were like you!!

    I usually get excited for the ride, talk to my husband, take pictures, or make all my Facebook friends jealous with check-ins and photo sharing.

    Or, I'll complain about people making out or standing too close to me, then come up with ways to thwart their actions.

    Watch the ride from the queue, and talk. Also, if Disney are selling food and drink while people wait, we always say that Disney lloves to have long queues so they can increase their profits.
    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...).

    I usually talk to my mom, people watch, or look at the scenery.

    I believe we've met.

    We avoid lines by trying to go on
    less crowded days,
    days with light rain in the forecast,
    hitting the popular attractions earlier,
    and using Fastpass. BUT when we're in line we talk, no phones. We recently spent our brief time in lines reviewing multiplication tables and spelling words.

    This wasn't a line, but my nicest waiting experience was when we were waiting for Fantasmic and I quietly read Harry Potter to my daughter with a flashlight on our old Mickey Mouse beach towel while we were waiting. When we've waited for the World of Color I've given her a frozen lemonade which can take almost 20 minutes to eat as it melts.
