Does anyone have a Disneyland traditions for when they first get in the park? I know the first thing my wife and I do is head straight to the haunted mansion and ride, it's her favorite ride and a happy wife makes for a good life

I park my truck then ride the tram. It happens 8 out of 10 times. - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 9:26AM
It's a very important part of the day - justinschu4  39.3 #5252 9:46AM
Don't forget ride down escalator - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 10:39AM
I usually zip line down Marsha. - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 11:10AM
Haha we stayed at the dland hotel once and my kids said it didn't feel right because we never rode the tram! - DlandDude  544.5 #375 5:03PM
I have to go on POTC, then HM. After that I let they ones I'm with decide. - DisneyGrandma  877.2 #210 9:35AM
My tradition was buzz. Now it's clocking in and making magic. - BCC  4783.2 #27 9:57AM
See was it that hard to pose a question without adding a picture? As for tradition, first thing in the park I hit up a restroom πŸ˜‚ - cesium55  531.8 #390 9:57AM
I've had some practice there is many post of mine without pics - justinschu4  39.3 #5252 10:22AM

I hit the bathroom after a long drive to Disneyland first - PartridgeFam  35.6 #5487 11:54AM
Our most consistant tradition is that before we step foot onto the property, my husband and I take a quiet moment to leave the whole other world behind. And to promise not to swear. Then we go to Disneyland first even if it's to turn right back around and go to DCA. - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 12:37PM
So you swear not to swear - justinschu4  39.3 #5252 4:02PM
I noticed recently we tour the parks almost in the same order as our DL music CD. Train, Tiki Room, Jungle cruise, Indy, Treehouse, Pirates. . . - GoofyMom77  904.1 #203 9:45AM

Hey... you post correctly! Nice job! It was to go on BTMRR...but that's out, so now it will be heading over to BTMRR and screaming and crying. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 9:57AM
Only til' fall, until then you can google a video of it and put a fan in your face on high while watching it - justinschu4  39.3 #5252 10:34AM
That might take the sting out of my broken heart... - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 10:35AM

We do not do anything special. We walk through the tunnel entrance and transform to another time where worries are absent. Kind of what heaven might feel like - Murryd  300.8 #909 4:16PM

Usually it starts with a bathroom trip. Then we choose between Peter pan, Indiana jones, or space mountain - kourtreed  15.1 #8591 10:27PM
We ask the kids what is the one ride they HAVE to do that day. We make sure to do that one and then from there we take it as it comes. Sometimes it is BTMRR or POTC or Space Mt or Buzz Lightyear. - swvballmom  6.7 #14586 11:03PM
