    I might suggest not bothering with going on certain rides (depending on the audience) but as to actively avoiding things, no. Fr'instance 'Winnie the Pooh' and most of the Fantasyland Dark Rides are lost on adults. And before it's rework, Superstar Limo was a total Must-Avoid.

    You know you go to Disneyland too often when... I'm reasonably certain that's the Opera House Mens Room, behind the Bank.

    Re: Are There Parts of Disneyland Where You Are Embarrassed to Take Guests?

    I'm not embarrassed to take anybody to any part of the parks. It's a really immersive experience to someone who has only been a couple of times. Usually they are like really into it and want to see everything. Now heres what MIGHT be embarrassing: Being a tour guide at DL and taking people in a backstage area only to have it look really shabby, or less then awesome and have it ruin a little magic...

    I'm thinking it is as well actually. I can't think of any other that looks like that.

    Perhaps this is just weird but since the guests I bring to the resort are friends and family who I don't control the movements of and who don't judge me and my "reputation" based on a park I had no control over...no i don't avoid places in the resort. We all kind of decide what the group thinks it would be "fun" to do, and we do it. I know I know...fun...how silly.

    Re: Are There Parts of Disneyland Where You Are Embarrassed to Take Guests?

    Any guests I take to the park either have never been to Disneyland or haven't been in a long time. They're just there to enjoy the park and not criticize every fine detail. So, there is nothing I'm embarrassed to show them or take them on. I'll give them advice on my favorite attractions and when are the best times to ride them, but that's about it. If my friends want to see something in particular, whether I like it or not, I'm happy to show them.

    We tend to get hyper-critical on the Disney boards. It's always refreshing to see the park through new eyes.

    I LOVE this aspect of taking people for their first trip. It's like seeing things for the first time for me as well.

    Even I, who love backstage as if it were my own child, agree with this. Backstage is for those who have irrevocably fallen in love with onstage and yet always want to know how the magic is done.

    I usually just holler "follow me!" and run my guests around until their feet fall off. I am a bit of an overachiever.

    Superstar Limo was the attraction that Monsters Inc. replaced. It was a limo ride through Hollywood, passing celebrities and such. Pretty weird, and more or less universally reviled.

    Re: Are There Parts of Disneyland Where You Are Embarrassed to Take Guests?

    I don't avoid attractions purposely, but when going with less Disney-fied friends, I usually hit the big attractions first. I don't look or act like I'm a huge disney geek, so whenever I take young ladies to the park, and point out a few things here and there, it certainly gives the brownie points

    The Fantasyland attractions would be something I'd probably hit last when I'm with the fellas, but it's a nice card to have when you're out on a date, especially if you have a few little facts our secrets to point out. Heck, even Pooh has the old characters from CBJ, so pretty much everything's game to me!

    Usually the noon-meets.

    Not that I'm embarassed of my MC friends, or of MC, but if I'm with a guest who doesn't visit the park that much:

    A: I don't think they would get it
    B: I don't think they would appreciate wasting their time standing around doing nothing.

    Other than that, I find that people who don't go to the parks that often actually enjoy things like Pooh, Autopia, toontown, etc and don't often notice things that are "Wrong" that we all see.

    Wow - based on the video, can't say I missed much and we do like Monsters, Inc.
