I've done that a couple of times, and it's a great treat!

Worth every bit of the $60. I would do it again in a heartbeat!  - ythdudette  1527.5 #123 5:07PM
Yess it's worth it... everyone should experience it at least once in their lives ;) if not two or 3 lol - disneyaddict24  140.4 #2984 5:12PM
How much is it?  If you don't mind me asking 😊 - PirateDoll  273.7 #1212 3:39PM
Oh no not at all! My cousin treated me to it but I believe it was $50. You get hot chocolate, coffee, or water before the show starts and then this snack tray with cheeses, fruits and sweets! You sit in a special area and it may not look like a lot but it's filling!  - disneyaddict24  140.4 #2984 3:41PM
I have done it twice and I highly recommend it! - mrssumr  70.4 #4309 9:37PM

I first visited DL when I was 6. I remember taking a picture with Peter Pan (who was a girl back then) and the crocodile. I was absolutely petrified of the crocodile, and my Mom kept trying to get me to hold his hand. In the picture, I wouldn't take my eyes off of him because I was afraid he'd eat me!

I can remember taking the shortcut across the park - Eagles Flight- the cable gondolas which passed through the Matterhorn.  - SteveGough  50.5 #4986 4:21PM
My earliest memories are of the Electric Light Parade. I remember Main Street all lit up, eating chocolate coins, the music and the lights on the floats! The song is my ringtone right now :-) - Diz_Mel  96.0 #3778 4:43PM

I was born in front of the castle in 1977, I dont remember it but it was a glorious day. This is why there is a golden spike there, its to represent my birth. And the clock that is above it is set to the time that I was born. - Dave  13832.5 #4 10:07PM

I've gone alone quite a few times, and really enjoy it. It does feel a bit strange at first, but the freedom finally wins out! Do make a point of meeting some MWrs - maybe do an in park RAK to meet some?

You can do whatever you want and never have to worry about what anyone else thinks, which can be nice sometimes. - Slotherini  1079.8 #188 1:46PM
Agreed! - Duchess_SMK  6604.0 #19 2:39PM
Yup! It's nice to go at your own pace. Go on any ride you want, watch any show, take as many pictures you want, eat whenever/wherever, and also just sit & relax - LBChica  2550.2 #62 3:12PM
I go alone quite often. Since I love photography I am free to shoot all I want without holding up people. Another fun thing to do alone is to really explore a land. - ru42  442.3 #536 1:50PM
My dream!! Just want one day by myself! Go as fast or as slow as I want. Take all the photos I want. Eat where and what and when I want. Only my own hands to clean, and nobody to tell, 'don't touch anything'! Sigh. - MeridaFan  4244.2 #39 2:11PM

OH. My. Goodness!!! 😱😍 Thank you SO much everyone! This has to be one of the most amazing gifts ever! I think I sat in my car after the reunion for a good half an hour and cried happy tears! I'm so incredibly grateful to receive this remarkable RAK. I plan to let my girls pick a few items and re-RAK the rest. I believe it is what Dahulagirl would have wanted and I'm honored with the opportunity to carry on the tradition. Words can not express how overjoyed I am! Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you ALL so much! πŸ’— - Duchess_SMK  6604.0 #19 1:37AM

From sitting out on meetups on the first 1000 points to put in wait times, all of the bubble guns, light up toys, EXTRA IPHONE CHARGING CORDS, minty chargers, walk offs, getting kicked off ToT, and all the behind the scenes you do, and on top of all that being an amazing friend. CONGRATS WELL DESERVED! Psst, May 18 is Coaster's Bday, it is tradition to sing iasw "his favorite" instead of Happy Birthday, hopefully all attending can make that happen or better yet go on iasw with himπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜„ - toph  2418.2 #67 2:29PM

I don't remember my first ride on POTC, although I'm sure it was the year it opened (I was 10). It was my mother's favorite ride. She wouldn't do roller coaster type rides, or spinning, or drop rides. Yet she would giggle and scream during POTC's drops saying it was just perfect for her. The background story wasn't readily available, but my mom was a history teacher and used POTC to teach me about Lafitte, the era, and pirates in general. She knew the song by heart, and would softly sing it throughout the whole ride. Her last visit was in the Fall of 1997, but every time I go on it I can't help but think of her and how much she enjoyed it. It's not my absolute #1 favorite attraction, but it holds the most memories. - Gia  802.2 #258 2:26PM

My first visit to DL was in 1973. My then boyfriend (now hubs) took me to the park on a very rainy Sat morn. First place we went was Pirates. When we exited it had stopped raining and the sun was shining on ROA. After riding Pirates and seeing this beautiful park shining I was so overcome with emotion I'll never forget it. That was the moment I fell in love with Disneyland. - DisneyGrandma  887.1 #226 9:20AM

The Walt Disney Family museum has a story from Walt about the ride. Walt wanted to show his wife what he had been working on, but the ride was not complete and as a construction site, dirt was prevalent, but Walt laid down floorboards to allow his wife to walk through and not get her dress dirty. A dreamer, a genius, and a gentleman. - campy  60.6 #4612 9:54PM
