The only Toon Town ride worth riding is Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin. I go nuts with spinning the wheel like a little kid.

Space Mountain, Tower of terror, Splash moutain. I hope Radiator Springs Racers is worth waiting for. I have heard it's a very long wait with or without fast passes. Honestly though, lines don't bother me too much for any ride.

Whoa, whoa, WHOA. Let's not get crazy. I love Pirates more than any other ride in the park, but waiting hours for it is nonsense. If Pirates is crowded, just wait for Fantasmic to start, and boom, instant line killer. Almost the same story for HM. Those are rides that should never have more than a 45 minute wait.

I'm not saying I want to wait an hour or if another time would be shorter I would not switch. I was answering based on every ride is an hour plus, which lines would I get in. If you include "working the park" then no I've never waited that long for POC. But if you said you get one ride and POC is an hour, I'll wait in line for it.

I honestly have to say "nothing".

I cannot imagine waiting hours in line for a single attraction. I've done it before thanks to a trip between Christmas and New Years...and that was the last time for that.

I would rather change my vacation dates than wait more than an hour for any single attraction.

I totally agree with you. I rather skip the ride and come back another day than waiting more than 45 Minutes.

I am also in the category of "Nope, Not Happenin'" when it comes to the long wait time. I know I'm spoiled, living so close to DLR, but I can always find non-peak times to visit. I admit that in some of my earlier visits, it was necessary to wait in lines for any new attraction opened (Star Tours, Indiana Jones), just for the bragging rites :lol:

There really is a large gap between regulars and once-in-a-lifetime visitors. I've been to the park and not rode a single thing, and not even because the lines were long, but just didn't feel like it. However, there is still plenty to see or do that doesn't involve waiting in a line, so the trip is still worth it.

We skipped Soarin last trip. I'm ready for the new "rumored" film. Now, let me go hide before the rocks start coming my way

There is one that still amazes me, that people lay down their blankets and stake their spots for the 9:00pm Fantasmic at 4:00-4:30pm in the afternoon. Fantasmic is a great show but to wait for 5 hours, there is far more better things I would like to be doing during that time.

Do they even let them into the amphitheater that early?!

Wrong park, there is no seating for the superior Fantasmic at DLR.

Holy cow ~ what is wrong with me tonight?!?! :shock:
Yeah, the viewing situation is messed up in DL with there being NO spot to actually sit :roll: I can't see sitting for that long to have a spot though.
