    First ride / Last ride in a day or trip

    So we are talking about our upcoming trip to DL, and we are already planning what we will do when we arrive in So Cal and our first day at the park.

    Our first ride, it's become a tradition lately, IJ is it, it's also the closest "big ride" (if you will) then Pirates, then splash.

    Our last ride for a day typically is Pirates. Or Matterhorn?

    PoTC, Splash or IJ is usually our last trip before we leave the park to go home.

    What about you?

    Depends, if it's just the adults, our first is usually Indy or Space Mt. If we have kids with us, the first ride is always Buzz.

    Our last ride is usually one of either Splash, Pirates or Haunted Mansion. Though we did decide to do Star Tours as many times as we could in the last 30 minutes before park closure one day. We got 8 in.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Space Mountain first, last ride of the day varies during the day. I prefer to ride Nemo last at park closing.

    Usually SM to start off the day right. Last, its usually POTC, or, if i am feeling crazy, maybe SM again, but usually there is a line, so i pass it by.
    I do like to end my days with what could be called "the Main St U.S.A. Ride." Its not high thrills, it mainly just involves me standing, and soaking up all that is main st usa.

    No traditional ending, but we start with POTC, oh to get a whiff of that wonderful smell

    Don't really have any by myself but with Jeff we ride Peter Pan last.
    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 tend to get the same smell from my Datsun after it rains as you get in POTC. Guess that's how i get my fix.

    Re: First ride / Last ride in a day or trip

    The DLRR is always a perfect way to start off every trip and every day for that matter.

    To end, I love JC or Indy. Empty Adventureland when you come out is just dripping with atmosphere. Priceless ending to a trip

    PotC to open...


    Don't really have a closer.. but last time it was PoTC


    For some reason PotC personifies DLR for me ....
