I was a local AP for two years so i feel like I have no excuses but I have never:

had a dole whip (had it finally in 2012, but in WDW- hoping to try one this Christmas!)
Been on: Space Mountain, Storyland Canal Boats or Dumbo
Gotten ears with my name on it (also want to do that this time!)

Yep, we are also AP holders and have been for the past 3 years (putting head down in Disneyland shame)

    -had a dole whip
    Okay... that is too funny. Dole whips are great, but not my thing. My family LOVES them. When we were there this week with my mom - all she wanted to do during our three days was Ride POTC, Luigi's tires and eat a Dole Whip. On Monday the line was about 50 deep at 1pm. I was totally surprised that so many people knew about the Dole Whip magic. We ended up waiting about 15 people deep at 7 or 8pm.

    I have never had a Dole Whip, but I don't like soft serve and the idea of them doesn't sound like something I would like.

    I can't think of anything else I haven't done at one time or another.

    pretty much all these. I didn't even know about the Aladdin show. :( Sadly, I had an annual pass in 2012...luckily I'll be getting it again this November so I can rectify this.

    I haven't been on:

    Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin
    Gadget's Go Coaster

    I haven't seen the Aladdin show either. Or ridden the Wheel of Death or CA Screamin' (And it's because I am a wuss, LOL).

    I have never been in the Penny Arcade, eaten at any of the "fancy" restaurants besides Blue Bayou, or ridden the Golden Zephyr. I think that's about it.

    Oh, I feel bad admitting some of these!:sad:

    I have never...
    --Rode the Explorer Canoes
    --Rode Screamin' (this is changing this next visit in January)
    --Ate a Turkey Leg (another one that will be accomplished in January)
    --Found the Petting Zoo, let alone actually visit and pet any creatures!
    --Cared about Fantasmic! (Yes, it's true, I could never see it again, and be okay with it!)

    However, I think I've done a lot of things that are often overlooked--like Mr Lincoln!

    Oh, I love Dole Whips!

    I've never eaten a Mickey ice cream bar.

    I have never ridden:
    Mickey's Fun Wheel
    Grizzly River Run
    California Screamin'
    because I am a big chicken (however I have been on Tower of Terror twice, so that should count for something!)

    I have also never ridden:
    Mad Tea Party
    Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin
    Gadget's Go Coaster

    I also haven't ridden Radiator Springs Racers yet since we couldn't even get near them last trip - next time though!

    Never stayed in a Disneyland Resort Hotel, although we did go to a character breakfast at the Grand Californian, so I've seen inside.

    I've never ridden a canoe around Tom sawyers island
    I've never eaten at Club 33
    I've never taken a tour

    One day!!


    Jul 23, 2011
    We were lucky this summer as we were able to spend 12 days at DL for our DD's graduation trip so we were able to do things we have never done before, even if it was something that did not appeal to me/us.

    One was the canoes. Mistake!!! But I can say I did it and will never do it again. lol

    The other was Captain EO. I think my hubby almost divorced me over these two. :rotfl2:


    We always mean to do Astro Orbiters but the wait always seems to get us and we end up getting out of line.

    Jumpin Jelly Fish in DCA.

    That's all I can think of right now. Wow.


    Crazy for the Mouse!

    This is too funny, because I too have been to DLR many, many times.

    Mr Lincoln (plan to se that this Dec), splash Mtn (afraid of drops), Matterhorn (but plan to fix this in dec) , lillybelle, canoes (not interested in doing this), Tom Sayers island and chip and dales treehouse, captain EO and innoventions

    Golden zephyr, grr (not interested in getting wet), TOT and screaming (chicken!), fun wheel (again, chicken).

    Things I finally did and am so glad I did? Animation academy in dca-it was great!! Highly recommend!! Jedi academy in DL which dd loved! It was hysterical too!

    And those who haven't done alladin really should!! It's a great show and the genie makes it even better!

We just started going to Disney in Dec 2012 (since we were kids) and have had 2 trips so far and our next one planned in a few months :banana: so making a list of things to try!

    - ridden Finding Nemo
    - Snow White's grotto

    - had a look at the redwood creek challenge trail

    All of which I plan to rectify when we are there in 10 days!!!!!
