I wouldn't automatically skip Stitch's Great Escape. Our ds was a huge fan the first time we went on it and he loved it.

Another great CS spot is Pecos Bills.

Sometimes there are some great photo ops in the Exposition Hall.

I would definitely have Stitch on my list (as would most of my friends and family -- in fact none of the people I have gone with over time would do that a second time).

That said I can't imagine Tomorrowland Transit Authority (or the PeopleMover as us old timers like to call it) would be on anyone's skip list - now I know its going to be closed some of the summer but if not that is a definite to do if only for the rest/ambience/to get to view the park from a bit above.

IMwink, you need to add the Princesses at Pixie Hollow & Mickey Judges Tent to the meet & greet area at Toontown.

When you are dead tired hop on the train and ride! We jumped on last year during spring break and road it around for probably 45 min to an hour to cool down and rest. It worked wonders. We just scooted over to the end of the row and stayed there.

Great thread!

Just last year we saw the "opening show" of MK and the characters were up by the train station welcoming everyone in. So glad that we saw it.

Very good thread.

Couple of people have already mentioned, but Transit Authority should not be on the skip list. I know people like different things, but this is a great way to relax. Ride it when it is raining....cool look at the park.

We also love Pecos Bills for counter service.

I would definitely skip Stitch. My two daughters, my husband, and I all saw it as disgusting and unecessary. However theTomorrowland Transit Authority used to be my daughter's (15) favorite! Funny how a 15 year old enjoys boring rides more than the thrill ones! But anyways, Transit Authority is not to be missed!

Different Strokes

Yep, different strokes for different folks.

I happen to love the Tiki Room (the storm can scare small children though) as well as the Transit Authority. The TA is especially beautiful at night as are some of the other rides which take on another dimension after dark, The Jungle Cruise is one example.

Yes, Goofy sits on the bench in front of Tony's. I know cause Slightly Goofy often sits behind him.

If you watch the parade from the front of the park you can catch the EWP on the water as you wend your way to the buses. Sit down, rest and watch and by the time you get there you will have a better chance to get a seat on the bus instead of standing.

Watch for the talking trashcan over by COP.

If you are on a budget you can order a child's meal for about $4 and unless you are a hearty eater it will be enough. Drink included as well as some sort of dessert.

Turkey legs are great for low carb eaters and will feed a family of six for a week or one hungry husband.

When you enter look to the far right to get in without a long line. It says CM's but also others. Many of the parks do this also.

If you have hot and tired children and want a bit of rest from the park you can catch the boat over to Ft Wilderness and eat at the Trail's End buffet. It is relaxing and there are places for the kids to run around or just sit and rest a bit. There used to be a petting zoo over there as well.

The Noodle Station is seldom open but it is a great place to rest and quite near the MS bakery and/or ice cream shop so you can get a snack and rest. While not the very best view of the parade it is a comfortable place to see most of it from.

I discovered Columbia Harbor House on my last trip - great place to eat, it has a huge upstairs area to get out of the heat. Their tuna sandwich is great!

I also really enjoyed the Keys to the Kingdom tour. It was fabulous - Matthew was a wonderful tour guide. Totally worth the time and money.

I believe Woody's Cowboy camp has been discontinued. My understanding was it was only for Year of Million Dreams, perhaps someone can verify?

Also - no mention of Carousel of Progress on your list for Tomorrowland. It is one of those older love it or hate it attractions. Personally, we love it and the fact that it is Walt's original design provides an insight into his genius. If you decide to do it - it almost never has a line - in fact many people don't even realize it is there. Warning - the song is catchy and you may find yourself singing it for days after.
