If you had an infinite amount of time, money and no lines. What would you do for a perfect day at DL? What rides would you ride in what order? What shows would you see? What food? What merchandise would you buy?

I think I would start out riding IASWH. To get me in the holiday mood. I just crack up at the mermaids singing Jingle Shells!

Then on to Fantasy Land, criss-crossing to whatever rides my dc see first.

We would then run to Adventure Land to ride Indy, JC, etc.

I think now would be a good time to stop and have a churro then lunch. (No, we won't spoil our lunch! This is a Fantasy! and a Disney one at that! :D )

Now that it is early afternoon we will stroll on to see all the rides we've never seen like Splash and Pooh.

We will finish up our night by eating a snack in front of our premier seating to F! then we will get in line for the Storybook Canal boats, perfectly timing it to see the fireworks from our seats!

1. Wake from a refreshing night at the Disneyland Hotel. Ride Monorail into DL.

2. Head to Riverbelle Terrace for breakfast of Mickey Mouse Pancakes.

3. Ride POC (always a family tradition to ride first).

4. Ride HM, Splash, visit Country Bears ( :crying: ).

5. Ride Jungle Cruise, Indy, Tiki Hut, Mark Twain, Big Thunder Mountain (at least those in our party who are brave enough to do so, lol).

6. Head to Fantasyland. Ride everything but teacups (don't want to hurl), casey jr., dumbo.

7. Ride It's a Small World.

8. Take train around to NOS. Enjoy late lunch at Blue Bayou.

9. Back to DH for nap and/or swim.

10. Back into DL for evening performance of Fantasmic! (watching from the balcony, of course).

12. Ride anything in Tomorrowland that sounds fun.

13. Shop along main street and enjoy late dinner at Carnation Cafe.

14. Remember, churros, pineapple juice, etc., are also a must throughout the day. I've never gone without food while at DL!

I've had many days like that in Disenyland. They're called rainy days. Every time that I've gone when it's raining there have been no lines and we've been able to get on every single ride within one day.

I've already had that day. On our honeymoon we had a day where everything went right and the day was capped off by a lovely meal at Club 33.

I usually ride every ride that I want each day that I am at the park.

A perfect day for me when be if there wasnt really any line ups. I had 1 day like that it was the day after 9/11. I know that wasnt a good day for the world, but on sept 12, 2001 we went to disneyland because I promised my kids..we just didnt have enough time to ride on the rides as there was hardley any one there.

I would only allow Senior Citizens in with me.... no kids and no teens. This way, I know the e tickets will be empty.. I wuld ride them all til I barfed. I would dine at Club 33 and find a bench somewhere to sit so that I can just absorb the ambiance. I would take my sweetie there and SMOOCH in front of Walt and Mickey.

Weather cool and partly cloudy, about 65 degrees or so.

No traffic. A parking space close to the escalator. No wait for the tram. No strollers.

Breakfast at the Plaza Inn, followed by a ride on HMH, Indy, Matterhorn and Space Mtn.

Lunch at the Blue Bayou - chicken caesar salad of course. :)

Ride on Peter Pan, Mr. Toad's, Casey Jr. Pirates, Star Tours.

Visit the Tiki Room

Go over to DCA and see DUH

Eat dinner at Club 33 and watch the Christmas parade and the holiday fireworks.

Retire to my discounted room at the Grand CA, club level.

Ummm... everything! I guess I couldn't eat everything, so I guess I'd have breakfast at Storyteller's Cafe (the buffet, of course!), lunch at maybe Napa Rose (have never been there), and dinner at Yamabuki... what the heck, infinite time & money, I'll eat dinner twice! Maybe the Vinyard Room...

My perfect day at Disneyland would start out with Walt saying, "Hi ya Ken. Let's go grab an orange juice at Sunkist!"

I would wake up around 9 am, and go to DL where I'd have a sticky bun from the Blue Ribbon Bakery and head down Main Street. I'd pop in and out of shops and maybe buy a thing or two and head to rent a locker for the day, where my FIRST shopping excursion purchases would be left. Then I'd head to Pirates and ride it 2 times before moving on to the Haunted Mansion. From there, to Splash Mountain and back around to NOS for a clam chowder bread bowl. Yum! After that we'd head (me and hubby) to Big Thunder Mountain and ride it several times over and over! After that we'd kick around the candy shop in Frontierland and buy some fudge. Then I think I'd head over to Fantasyland and ride all of the rides there! We love Peter Pan!!! I'd wander in and out of shops in each land, and especially spend time in Adventureland Bazaar after riding Indiana Jones and the Jungle Cruise. After JC we would get Bengal BBQ while relaxing for a bit under the grassy umbrellas. Basically, I would take my time, enjoy the foods I enjoy and ride the rides I love over and over!!! :)
