    Traditions at DL?

    Do any of you have Traditions that you do at disneyland? Is there a ride that you have to go on first or last? Or is there a special spot that you like to go to in the park? Or maybe your like me and you always have to stop by the Gibson Girl no matter the line or the weather! One tradition I have is to go on POTC first when my whole family goes to the park. Anywho, just wondering! thanks!

    NO DOUBT SUMMER 09 TOUR!

    My tradition is scraping together enough money to actually be able to afford to fly, visit and stay near a Disney park every few years.

    At first I thought you were talking about the class. My family always starts the day at Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. Dole Whip!

    Mr. Lincoln is actually in the Opera House. The Hall of Presidents is a seperate attraction, that dose include Mr. Lincoln, at the Magic Kingdon.

    I thought you were talking about the class, too. But my traditions are the Dole Whip and Splash Mountain when I'm there alone.

    Re: Traditions at DL?

    one of my first memories of disneyland is sitting on my grandpas knee at the west side of the castle eating fantasia ice cream. my every visit had to incluse the ice cream from then on. my grandpa passed away almost two years ago and i still made the oddly yummy fantasia icecream a part of every visit. i was devistated when i was discontinued. for me that was hte single most wonderful thing at the pask because of the memories it helped support. ive now turned to dole whip and memories of my husband. its super yummy but the fantasia ice cream will always be special to me.

    Eating fantasia ice cream on a warm summer evening listening to Count Basie and countless other big bands at the Plaza Gardens with one of my best friends - a tradition that's sadly long since a part of "Yesterland".

    You know I'm actually surprised they haven't tried to build a Disney park in Australia. They already have parks in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Paris, and two parks in the US.

    The one thing I always do is go on Matternhorn first. I also try and go on Spalsh as many times as I can (usually 5-10 times in a day)

    Re: Traditions at DL?

    we have to hit small world, pirates, and the jungle cruise at least once every day (if not more!). it is also a tradition to make small world our last ride of the trip.

    one rather strange tradition we have is to see who can see the matterhorn first when we get close to the park. i don't know how or when that started!
    I'd rather be at Disneyland
