    Your favorite part about...Adventureland

    Years ago I did a thread like this on a WDW site exploring the World Showcase. It was cool to learn what everyone loved and did in each pavillion. I thought it might be interesting to do it here. (If this thread does well I will start one for each Land, one at a time.)

    OK - think about your answer first. What really makes you feel the Disney magic when you are in Adventureland? What the the lesser known fun places about this area. What should regulars and guests alike not miss. The answers could be from the Land itself, a store, a ride, or whatever.

    So---what really gets you excited about Adventureland?

    Regulars and guests should not miss Adventureland just because it has a cool atmosphere. It is shaded, cool, and inviting. It also has the typical Disneyland intimacy to it.

    "In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room"

    I think that says it all.

    Jungle Cruise skippers!! :devil:
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I love the absolutely incredible remote feeling you get on the JC, even though Main Street, The RR tracks, and DTD are only a few short feet away from you.

    I love the retro theme of Adventureland. It ties Indy in nicely to the whole area. I love listening to the scratchy 20's and 30's music coming from the radios in the JC area and the Indy queue. I like the explorer's outpost look to the JC building...

    Adventureland's vibe is the coolest thing. The stores have the most interesting toys, the food is the most unique, and I love the sounds -- bird and animal calls.

    I used to love the Indiana Jones line, too. I loved the generator outside, controlling the lights (does that still happen? It's been a while since I've been there), and the sound of the bats inside, and the general coolness and dampness of the atmosphere once you're inside the temple.

    Flickering lights? Awesome - I'm there!

    Actually, I will be there in November -- I totally can't wait. And threads like this only fuel my fire.

    Um, Dole Whip floats. But I love that genie's lamp in the shop. It's really funny and it's a nice litle tucked away corner to chill in, if only for a few minutes.

    Yes -- the genie lamp!

    Is there a reggae-type band that still plays on the roof the Jungle Cruise queue?

    (Good grief -- you'd think I hadn't been to DL in years -- it's been maybe 18 months.)

    I haven't seen the Steel Drum Band up there in many years
    Although my favorites would be the Tahitian Terrace, old green slurry pavement and the more grass-hut look of the original Tropical Imports and Jungle Cruise, nowadays I'd have to go with the beautifully renovated Tiki Room.

    Bummer about the steel drum band. That added to the atmosphere.

    I never realized how tiny Adventureland is until this thread.
