    Re: What is your nostalgic "must do" thing?

    I always try to listen to the various sounds of Disneyland as I enter: the train whistle, the pistol shots at the hippos on Jungle Cruise, the music on Main Street, the Mark Twain whistle...and so on. Sounds like these always conjure up memories of youth, when I was a CM, and all the times I've brought my daughter to Disneyland.

    My boyfriend can't go on thrill rides until he rides a few gentle ones first, so last year when we went those were the first two rides we went on, and it totally made him a Disneyland fanatic. So when we go, those are always the first two we hit.

    I've always had a soft-spot for Mr Toad's Wild Ride. If I can't do Autopia, then I have to do Toad.

    My wife and I like to go say good morning to Walt at the fire station.

    The one thing I've consistently done is give Uncle Walt a simple, silent salute or nod of thanks to the window of the Firehouse upstairs, as I leave at the end of the day.

    The first thing we do, is run to the lookout at the Main st station, watch the people on Main Street do their hustle and bustle, and immediately ride the train once around, stopping in New Orleans square on the second round, and ride pirates. It's a really special tradition to me.

    This is my husband's ritual. First thing when we walk in and last thing before we leave. He also tries to catch the Flag Retreat Ceremony.
    Peter Pan: "You know, your hair is on fire."
    Me: "Yes. It happened after a recent trip to Neverland."
    Peter Pan: "Well, you can dunk your head in the pond behind us, if you want."

    Neverland since 1996.

    Peter Pan is always our first ride, then the rest of Fantasyland before the lines get crazy. We always have breakfast at the River Belle Terrace,

    Re: What is your nostalgic "must do" thing?

    We used to always eat at Carnation Gardens and I remember that, when we went with my grandparents in the early 70s, there used to be dancing under the big striped bandstand to live music. Greatest generation kind of stuff!

    Now that we're on the east coast with my own kids, we make a point of enjoying Dole floats in Adventureland. This is a MK ritual that comes from when my parents and the grandparents would take me to the park and we would have Dole Whips while watching the Tiki Garden Preshow.

    Re: What is your nostalgic "must do" thing?

    Once a year we take a pic of our daughter (usually on her b day) in front of the door near the Alice ride - so we have a pic of each year as she's grown and the door keeps getting smaller...
    Then whenever we go I take a pic with her in the Mr Toad car with her driving and me freaking out...
    Lastly, used to take a pic of my wife and daughter at Ariel's shell, now we have had to find new spots for their pics - the Tea Cup has served nicely.
