    Re: What Ride Do You Go On When You First Enter The Park?

    Peter Pan. I hate waiting in that line. And though it is my favorite ride, I only ride it once a day. Back when the park was empty I could ride it twice at rope drop. But those days are gone. Peter Pan represents every element at the park into one ride, the theme of the bedroom, the nostalgic use of black light and the the thrill of the little dip down on to the volcano. With Peter Pan under my belt, everything else for the day is just gravy!!!

    A lot of times we'll head back to BTMRR. Because people tend to start at the front of the park and work their way back, that corner has very few people in it at first.

    So do I. Its one of my most favorite rides in the park, mostly because of its history, jerking, speed, and theming.

    The Disneyland RR is typically the first ride on the first day of our trip. It's cool to hop on the train circle the park and get excited about our next few days. We typically make the round trip from Main Street and then get off the second time around to NOS. Then it's promptly of to POTC and THM.

    Typically Peter Pan, but this summer (minus kids) the wife and I will head straight to BTMRR. Will be the first time on since it reopened.

    I don't have one specific one anymore, but when I was a kid it was the Disneyland Railroad up to 1989, and then after that it was Star Tours. Now it's pretty much any ride that has an unusually short line (like 30min for Space Mountain), or, if none of them do, then I generally do Pirates and Mansion.

    If it's a warm sunny day, my dad and I will go to Splash Mountain first. There is usually nobody over there so you can walk right on, and if there is nobody in line by the time it's done you can ride again and again. And you get the log to yourself, you can sit wherever you want to in the log.

    Sometimes it's Indy or Pirates or Haunted Mansion. Other times it's Matterhorn or Star Tours. It depends on whom I'm with and what's on everyone's agenda.

    If I don't utilize an early entry to Disneyland, my first ride is usually Indiana Jones. If I don't feel like getting a FP I will try and hop in line first thing while the wait time is shortest.
    If I do use an early entry, I will either hop on Star Tours and get a FP for Space Mountain or head to Fantasyland and knock out the dark rides while the lines are fairly short.

    As far as DCA goes, my first ride is either RSR or Toy Story Mania. It just depends on where I want to go first.

    When we go to DCA, we usually get straight in line to get a FP for RSR, saves us the hastle of getting in line so that we can ride ToT. That way, we can hop right on ToT multiple times while getting a guaranteed ride on RSR later in the day.

    Totally random each time we go. I think taking the "grand circle route" on the train would be a great way to start the day, but I doubt we'll ever get around to following any sort of plan.
