hello all i'm a nubee here and am just learning the ropes but i go to dcr at least once or twice a year but most of the time we only go for one day. so i'm wondering in what order do you all ride the rides and what is everyones must see and skip it list. btw to all of you just getting up to speand a day at the most wonderful place on earth (lucky!!!!)  have a magical day!!!!!

Welcome! My must is Splash and I can skip It's a Small World. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  705.4 #305 6:43AM
on a hot day small world can be a welcome break from the heat but it's on my see it if we're ahead of schedule list #1 on my skip list is the submarine and my #1 must see is fantasmic - jackthepumpkinking  4.2 #23574 6:48AM
It usually has a longer line than Pirates, so I go on Pirates on a hot day. I can skip Nemo, but the observation deck is air conditioned and not many people know about it. So, I'll go there to experience Nemo without going in the subs.  - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  705.4 #305 6:55AM
might have to try that if you over 5'6 the nemo ride is quite a challenge to even see .... - jackthepumpkinking  4.2 #23574 7:04AM
Yep, I'm 5'8" and claustrophobic, so I don't like the subs.  - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  705.4 #305 7:11AM
i'm 6'1 and well let say plus size so its a no go for me too....  - jackthepumpkinking  4.2 #23574 7:14AM
My must is Thunder Mt. and Pirates. It's breaking my heart that Thunder is closed when I'm there! I've never missed riding it before. - LovemesomeDoleWhip  108.7 #3563 6:56AM
OH and Welcome! :) - LovemesomeDoleWhip  108.7 #3563 6:56AM
i know the feeling i went a couple years ago during the potc refurb and to boot the haunted mansion was down for the holiday overlay it was dissapointing but hey the show went on and wow they are taking forever with big thunder was closed in june when i went they said it'd be back up by october now it's been pushed to feb???   - jackthepumpkinking  4.2 #23574 7:03AM
Yep, that's what the word is. It's a major refurb for sure.  13 months is a loooooong time. Original DL was built in less time. LOL - LovemesomeDoleWhip  108.7 #3563 7:09AM
and for less $ i bet lol....... - jackthepumpkinking  4.2 #23574 7:15AM
Welcome!! My must ride is Indiana Jones! I skip nemo because of the long lines - ILuvSleepingBeauty  235.7 #1613 7:20AM
thx and indi rocks the only ride i don't mind waiting in line for - jackthepumpkinking  4.2 #23574 7:30AM
If your fortunate enough to go more times, try and go one day without going on a single ride. See all the shows and specials things they have going on around the parks. Like Magical Map or the Animation Academy. Even little things like DJs performance in Carsland or the Main Street Band performing in front of the castle. Things like this make you look at Disneyland in a whole different way. 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #209 7:33AM
back in june we did the 3 day pass the magical map show was awsome also saw abe and oh yeah the alladin show is another haaveto for us and "its tough to be a bug" too - jackthepumpkinking  4.2 #23574 7:41AM

Q?  i was there in june and there was a potc cast member rocking a pegleg and talking like a pirate to my daughter i wanted to get out picture with him cause , well,  he looked like the genuine article my wife refused on the grounds of his handicap.  do you think i was in the wrong?

If you ask me I don't think the CM had an issue or he wouldn't be rockin a pegleg and working POTC. I bet he loves being asked for photos. He is who he is and he embraces it and has fun. I don't see the problem. - LovemesomeDoleWhip  108.7 #3563 3:18PM
I personally don't feel there is any reason to tip toe around handicap individuals. I believe that CM gets a lot of picture requests and as far as I know it doesn't bother him at all. He enjoys what he does - missmimi90  2050.7 #88 2:46PM
have you seen him too i feel like i missed the pic of a lifetime for the sake of my wifes being pc.... - jackthepumpkinking  4.2 #23574 2:51PM
He is around sometimes, yes. Other mouse waiters have seen and met him. - missmimi90  2050.7 #88 2:52PM
He also works on the Columbia.  I think taking a picture WITH him is a souvenir of a moment your daughter shared with a great castmember.  I have pics with cms that bring back great memories, like the cm at Everest (WDW) who tried to photobomb our group picture and acted disappointed he wasn't asked to be in it.  I asked him to take one with me and he's giving me the biggest hug.  ðŸ˜„ Taking a picture OF a cm without their knowledge just because of a disability would be insensitive, and yes, politically incorrect.  ðŸ˜‰ - bluefairy  643.8 #345 5:41PM
We saw him and talked to him in Sept. He was a really neat guy!! - leopardditz2000  1203.0 #160 3:30PM
his name is Bruce and yes I posted a picture of him and I on 9/11/13. I just bumped it. He is a super nice guy. - Plumiegirl  10393.3 #9 7:20PM

Do a search for it. I just know everyone says its great but I don't like spoilers and want to be surprised by it so I have been ignoring posts with pics.LOL - Cinderella_Schnooks  3486.8 #48 9:22AM
Thats what i've been doing too lol - madsdad  1868.2 #100 9:26AM
Howd u get a pic with big al and i wish they'd bring the country bear jambory back and get rid of the dumb winnie the pooh ride...   - jackthepumpkinking  4.2 #23574 9:50AM
You can often find the Country Bears hanging out in the Jamboree area by Big Thunder Trail. - SneakyStella  321.9 #855 4:55PM
Lol I've been ignoring them too! - BriHizzle  374.8 #649 4:59PM
I posted pics Saturday, fun holiday jokes too! - ShariRenee  12069.2 #8 9:23AM
