    It was so brain-warpingly bad that even the day guests went to the Guest Services lobby to try to get that wasted fifteen minutes of their life back. The exit Guest Opinion polls for DCA actually went up when the ride was closed or they hadn't gone on it. Ergo, they closed it and left it closed.

    Not even close - the old ones out on TSI by the Mill can get really rank, and because of the required raft trip they only get serviced a few times a day. No AC, and the fans can't keep up.

    RE: "Hidden Mickeys" in the Opera House RR
    It is a real stretch to consider the door hardware holding on the latches and coat hook as "Hidden Mickeys", they are in the right orientation but the spacing is all wrong. Now if they had placed a fender washer under the bottom bolt to make it bigger, then I would give it to you as 'benefit of the doubt'...

    I agree. I wish we could still hear Thurl Ravenscroft's voice.

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

    This is a great thread. There are soooo many things about Disneyland that embarrass me, that it makes it very difficult to bring a guest along at all!

    Snow White is a ride I avoid at all costs when I have a guest due to the fact that the apple rarely makes noises any more. Also, when the witch turns around in the boat to hand over the apple, I usually proceed to embarrass my self.

    Space Mountain is also a no when I am with a guest. I mean it's white, it's copper, it's white again...how embarrassing!

    The Tiki Room is an extremely embarrassing attraction to take guests to that do not like birds. I have a friend named Sol that has wild birds on his farm that are constantly attacking him and his horses, thus, he would prefer to steer clear from these animals. I forgot about his phobia and dragged him in there on a hot day and the guy went ape. Of course, I was embarrassed.

    I guess the absolute in Disneyland embarrassment would be the jungle cruise. Many times I have gone on that ride and the Skipper has made an inconsiderate crack about my hair or my clothes. When you are with a guest you want to feel like a hundred bucks, right? Well I have been belittled on that attraction 30 too many times, and now choose to tell guests that the ride is closed and move on to the pirate ride.

    You are safe Bruce, she would probably have just sent us there since this thread is long enough to survive without our aashee's little distraction. Besides talking about aashee's equipment package is really only worth one or two posts IMHO.

    So you have been getting Don Rickles as your Skipper, cool.

    Do you take your visitors to New Orleans Square for a trip to smell the bathroom, followed by a screening of "Honey I shrunk the audience"?

    Or do you do Pirates and Mansion and Space Mntn and walk past HISTA?

    I wouldn't skip HISTA. I think most of the HISTA haters are people who have seen it one too many times. Most Disneyland first timers would find it enjoyable and humorous. It may not be the most technically sharp 3D movie out there, but it's still a fun little movie with good effects and plenty of surprises.

    Cancerland. The smoking areas.

    Other than that, I've never once had to apologize to anyone about any portion of Disneyland. I can be a little hard on it at times, as I'm sure everyone here can. If I'm with someone who hasn't gone as often as I have, then they usually fall in love with everything as a real Disney experience.

    Then again, there's a particular attraction order I usually take guests on that helps a lot. The 50th film in the Opera House at Disneyland and Golden Dreams at DCA make great thematic ways to start the day. But, throw them in the middle of the day after other, more immersive attractions, and they would fall flat.
