Always skip:
Country Bears Jamboree
Tomorrowland Speedway
Tom Sawyer Island
Most of Fantasyland (will sometimes ride Peter Pan's Flight or Small World)
Swiss Family Treehouse

Often skip:
Hall of Presidents
Stitch's Escape
Aladdin's Magic Carpets

After my last visit, Space Mountain has most likely joined the Always Skip list.
It's just too jerky and not enjoyable anymore.

We use to skip several rides before children, but now seem to hit most. The ones we currently can still skip (but am sure only another year or two) are the tree house and Tom Sawyer Island.

Always skip:
Walt Disney World Railroad
Swiss Family Treehouse
Magic Carpets of Aladdin (spins)
Splash Mountain = last drop too steep
Prince Charming Regal Carrousel (for 2 reasons: 1. It's a spinning ride
2. The name change is ridiculous, isn't it?)
Mad Tea Party (again, another spinner)
Dumbo (you got it!)
Astro Orbiter (heights and spinners)
And finally, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger SPIN

Riverboat and Tom Sawyers Island

I am not sure why because I loved both as a kid and I know my children would enjoy both of these. We are going to really have to make an effort to do both on our next trip.

In 35 plus years of going to MK, I have never been on:

Riverboat
Tom Sawyer's Island
Magic Tiki Room

We are going this summer and I intend to do all of the rides/shows I haven't done before as well as some I haven't done since I was a child, including:

Country Bear Jamboree
Hall of Presidents

Rides I have done, but will never do again:

Stitch
Astro-Orbiter (that thing scares me I guess it's being so high up-oddly Space Mountain doesn't bother me at all)

In all my trips, I've never been on Astro Orbiter. I think I'm going to do it next time (if the line isn't too bad).

I haven't been on Carousel of Progress or the Treehouse since I was a kid.
I finally did the Magic Carpets on my last trip.

Wow, I skip a lot. I do not skip everything, every trip. But, I skip most of these most of the time.

Swiss Family Robinson

Winnie the Pooh

Peter Pan
Wow, I didn't realize either until I read your list as to how much I skip. The only difference is the County Bears. I think they are cute. But I have to add to the list.
Space Mountain... afraid..
Astro orbiter
Carousel of Progress
Alladins carpets

Wow... looks like I am missing allot. Still see plenty though and have allot of fun. The list may be longer.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Tomorrowland Speedway- might ride this if it was more like gocarts

Buzz Lightyear- (i did it once not really my thing at least not enough to stand in line for, and I've never done TSMM at DHS)

Teacups -(I'm not fond of spinning)

Dumbo - Can't quite work up the enthusiasm to sit and go in a circle

Barnstormer- Rather wait in line for an actual roller coaster

I haven't done Tom Sawyer or Treehouse, but I visit without kids so no appeal I'd probably do more of the stuff I listed if I was with a munchkin, but as an adult visitor I'm just going to skip a ton of kiddie rides.

I'm going in May with my mom and I'm going to ride the Riverboat. I've done it with DH a few years ago but my mom has not done it in a very long time, if ever! Her fav WDW's ride is ToT (like 11 rides in a row) but at 75, I think she'll like relaxing on the Riverboat. It is a nice ride.

I have a 19yo DD who is not a WDW person (and hasn't been for a long, long time). When we discuss Disney she always says that she loved Tom Sawyer's Island and wishes we would have gone there more on our visits. We went once. So go and let them enjoy it! I think, since we live in the mtns., we probably thought, "why bother?"

I had never been on Astro-Orbitor until 2 years ago, I guess. DD and I went on it and out of all of the rides in Disney, I have never been more scared and ready to get off a ride! I screamed so much I'm surprised you did not hear me! It seemed sooo high, so fast...ugh! I'm sure I was quite the show.

I do not think I will ever go on that again!
