  • Skipping attractions

    Today’s SQOTD made me think about skipping attractions while traveling with family. Do you sacrifice a desired attraction FP when the rest of your party wants to do something else or do you separate to do your own thing? My kids are teens and we seem to skip certain rides unless I make a specific request. Last year I chose to skip TT with the family and ride FEA by myself.

    We're fortunate in that we both tend to like the same attractions. I must admit I love to fly in Dumbo and DH doesn't, so I just go off and do that on my own.

      I'm usually solo unless someone joins me and now the only person that would be joining me is my mom. So, we certainly could separate but we tend not to.

        We pretty much all like the same attractions.
        That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.

          Since there are only 2 of us, we generally do the same attractions, and we both get a number of things we love.

            Luke and I enjoy most of the same attractions, though I don't do the bigger roller coasters anymore. I don't mind taking a break to rest my feet while he gets a ride or two on one these.

              Ed and I like most of the same attractions so if it is just us we don't have to skip anything. When we took my parents we had to take into account their ages and mobility issues and skipped some of our favorites.

                As we now do longer trips, some attractions that are on Lucille's ,"NO Burger Flipping WAY or HAVE YOUR LOST WHAT'S LEFT OF YOUR MIND?" List. Those I set up for down days and go off on my own to enjoy. Some others I book for both us and see how she feels when we get there. If up to it, Great, if not BETTER I get to do it twice. But I try not to FP those more than once a day and make sure they are near a store she likes or a people watching spot she enjoys

                  Lenny and Abby will ride Star Tours (it makes me sick now to ride) and while I will wait in line with them, I walk right through and wait at the exit for them and take that few minutes to just sit and relax and people watch. Last time we went when Flights of Passage was open, Lenny opted not to ride due to concerns of the ride vehicle so he stayed outside and I walked through the FP line with Abby to keep her company. When she went into the preshow room, I was led to the exit - I figured this would make me sick as well and chose not to ride with her - where I was told to feel free to wait for her, which I did. Other than those two attractions, we pretty much all like everything else and stick together.

                    Our last few trips have been with 8-10 people (3 family units) so we definitely don't all want to do the same things all the time. Sometimes the people who don't want to go on the attraction will just wait on a bench. Other times we'll just split up and do different things. We always plan to have time together every day and time apart. That way everyone gets to do what they want to for the most part.

                      We usually ride most of the same things together. But,on occasion I will ride something DH doesn't like and vice versa.

                        My wife won't go on most coasters. My boys and I usually get a fastpass for coasters and my wife usually gets a fastpass for a show or character meet while we are on coaster.

                          There are only a few attractions that I can't go on so I usually tell my DH to go on a single rider line if it's available. If I travel with friends who have motion issues then I just do whatever rides they're able to do since I go to WDW so often.

                            Usually the shows or movie attractions like: Festival of the Lion King, Reflections of China, Carousel of Progress, etc. I can't always do all of them because my family doesn't enjoy them much.

                              My husband and I like the same attractions so we tend to stay together. Our sons are 17 and 19 and usually stay with us, but do go off and do their own thing (usually when we want to stay in World Showcase)
