Fireworks. If they are playing the night you are there - they are the #1 draw for me. I don't even bother with 4th of July fireworks shows here in SD anymore - Disneyland has ruined all other fireworks for me. The technical wizardry, choreography, inspiration, emotion, it is the complete package.

POTC and HM! The kids like to start the day by riding Dumbo, Teacups, and Alice.

Wait till you take a Disney cruise and you watch fireworks in the middle of the Ocean, or watching the fireworks over the Magic Kingdom from the California Grill atop the Contemporary Hotel while your having dessert. Both were unbelievable and a must do at least once.

Just one? We always take a group picture on the fire truck in Toon Town every time we go with who ever we are with.

But we do have to eat a Dole Whip and a few churros too.

That's tough.

I know for my wife, it is to have one of those cookie ice cream sundaes on the our last slow walk (very slow walk) down mainstreet and out of the park.

When we first enter the park, we have to enter under the right side tunnel and read the Walt Disney quote:
"Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday tomorrow and fantasy"
that is on a plaque above the tunnel. 4 weeks today until I can read it again!

It used to be ride Matterhorn or Space but in recent years it has been the simple moment of standing at the entrance to Main Street and taking in the Disneyland feeling that washes over me.

I'd say my new favorite is BTMRR at night... during fireworks. Among many other things!

I have 4 things on my list so far:
1. RSR -- DS is going to go NUTS!
2. POTC -- Mommy's favorite!
3. Holiday tour so we can watch the parade and hit IASW
4. Watch my kids see all of the magic for the first time and watch DH's reaction to their reaction -- I know he'll get teary.

But I think I'm going to add the Mark Twain steering on there! Both the kids would get a kick out of that!
