    Ok, this one's not for every time, but only for every time we're there from (near)opening to closing. At the end of such long days, my group will gather at the north end of the compass in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. One at a time, we must come up with and perform a unique and silly walk from north to south, jumping on the mid-point of the compass and always wiping our feet on the "S."

    Favorite snack: I don't tend to eat much while in the park, but when it comes to the good stuff, visit either Storyteller's Cafe or Goofy's Kitchen, the selection and quality is unmatched.

    We let the birthday child (for that particular trip) choose which ride we go on first and which is the last ride we go on before we leave. Plus we always get them their birthday buttons for that trip. Everybody's happy (by the end of the year)!

    My wife thinks I'm nuts, but when entering the park, I have to go under the right tunnel (by the wheelchairs and strollers). Can't go under the left. When leaving I have to go under the other tunnel.

    We always ride POTC (assuming its not being refurbished), generally as the last ride of the evening...

    Not a very unique tradition, but I always try to walk through the castle across the bridge. It is possible not to.
    I also like to look up at Walt's light above the Fire House.

    Left side of the castle entrance for me.

    And when we were only going once a year I always took the kids's picture in certain areas. Like I took Shawn's by the door next to the alice ride every year.

    Hey 'Mom,

    Or should I say neighbor... We're in Brentwood. We just had lunch in Mudville last saturday at Bob's at the Marina. Ever been there?

    We too have been taking pictures of the kids at the same spot in DCA since we were first there on the AP sneak-preview weekend before it opened. Never did start that in DL.

    Great tradition.

    Traditionally? Go through what ever side is less crowded, get a reservation for dinner at Blue Bayou, have a cup of "decent" coffee with an apple Dessert with my wife. IT takes two people, I am not kidding. But to me it goes great with the coffee.
    I was told by the waiter that the good coffee came from DCA Bakery. Sorry forgot the name. :confused:
    But it just tops off the meal nicely.
