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

    My family and I always, and I mean always head to Space Mountain for our first ride of the day. This is to avoid the larger crowds later, as well as to start our day with something thrilling.
    Which ride do you go on first and why? Why is it special?

    Depends on when we are going. For EMH, its always Peter Pan. If arriving mid day, Pirates

    Peter Pan is always our first ride of each trip. We kinda have a tradition.

    It used to always be Star Tours, but my son loves Astro Orbitors so much we can't pass it without him asking to ride.

    It used to be Space Mountain, but lately, since the refurb, I've been heading straight to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

    We always went to whatever was new first. That was when there were new things every few years.

    For me it's less a "do this first" than "do these things definitely at some point."

    at DL, Peter Pan first and last. At DCA, used to be ToT. Now it's RSR followed by ToT.

    It really depends on my mood. Often it is what's the newest, such as when Star Tours first reopened, and now it's Big Thunder if I get there at rope drop. Other times I'm not so interested in the big, crowded attractions and I'll head to NOS and try to just enjoy the quiet ambiance before it fills up, and enjoy a ride on HM or POTC as a walk on.

    Matterhorn. I go to WDW so much more than DLR, so it is nice to ride attractions that I would usually not ride/see. And you could argue that all the attractions are different with layout or whatever, which they mostly are, but it still feels similar.

    We always like to start in the back corner with Splash Mountain and Winnie the Pooh, then work our way East across the park.

    The flipside of this question is what attractions do you NEVER go on when you first enter the park? I have a list of a few that no matter what, I'd never consider hitting first:
    Tiki Room, Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln, and a few others since I need a certain level of tired to fully enjoy t hem.

    Usually Space Mountain to avoid long waits later.
