    Kick back and relax areas

    Okay i tried a search, i'm not sure if this has been done before. If it has I'm sorry, and everyone can point at me and laugh...again

    Anyway, does anyone have a favorite place where they can just kick back and relax at the Disneyland resort? I personally like the main room in the Animation building.

    On Pirates of the Caribbean.

    1, It's my favorite ride
    2. The queue is never much longer than 15 minutes
    3. The building is air conditioned
    4. It's USUALLY (excepting a-hole teens and crying toddlers) quiet.

    I love New Orleans square, especially the benches by the fountain. It is beautiful and quiet, a great spot to people watch.

    It has to be the back area of Hungry Bear where you can sit and just watch the river traffic. Also, there is the balcony of the Gallery. Great place to just sit and watch the day go by.

    You read my mind! I love the shady benches and the music there!

    The cute little front porch on Mainstreet with the rocking chair. I think I could sit there and rock and people watch all day.

    Definitely a tie between the main room of the Animation Building in DCA and Carnation Cafe..close to Main street so that you have a good view of everyone walking in an out w/ smiles on their faces!

    I have to agree, was one of my favorite places in the park.

    Unfortunately, now it's behind rehab walls

    My favorite places to kick it away from the crowds would be:
    1) The area behind the Columbia to watch the Splash Mt. victims and river traffic.
    2) The walkway between Frontierland and the Carnation Pavilion (? area where school bands preform) to watch the hub from a distance in the shade. No one is ever back there.
    3) The patio behind the gallery
    4) Anywhere with live music, especially the piano dude at the ice cream parlor. That guy rules.

    other than accompanying my sister to the smoking sections, i don't think i have ever just kicked it and people watched. that said, i do really like the walkway between frontierland and fantasyland. especially at night- you can hear the crickets, the wind rustle the trees, btmrr, splash, and marktwain without all the people.

    Yep, the porch on Main St starting about a half an hour before the rides close. People watching at its finest. Of course, you also need the cup of hot chocolate and cinnamon roll to round out the evening...

    Second place goes to the River Belle and a table to eat dinner while waiting for Fantasmic to start. Great view and table service too. The best part is after the show is over watching everyone scramble to get out of there while we sit and enjoy the last of our hot chocolates, waiting for the crowds to thin out.

    I think the same thing about sitting at a table in the Carnation Cafe and watching people streaming into Disneyland in the morning. You get to see all the bottled up excitement and eagerness...

    Plaza Pavillion. Needs more tables and chairs on the Adventureland side of the entrance though.

    I like sitting over by Thunder Mountain where on the far side of the of McDonalds French Fries wagon. There is some good people watching over there, but the most relaxing place is in the downstairs of the Hungry Bear, way back in the back. It's cool and you can watch boats/canoes go by. I love watching little kids that can't paddle splashing the crap out of the people around them as they attempt to paddle.
