When walking through the gates at WDW or any other Disney park, what was the first thing you saw that made you say "look at that"?
Personally I walked through the gates of Disneyland Paris and saw a horse drawn carriage.Attached to the horses behind was a leather chute which caught any droppings and guided them into a bag.I know it,s not pleasant but it is the first thing I saw that made me say "look at that".
One Life,Live It
Honestly everything I see in the park makes me do that because I turn into a 29 year old kid when I go. But if I had to nail down one thing it would have to be Fantasmic. I love that show more than all others. This May was my first trip back in 12 years or so and I don't remember it being there last time. That whole show makes me go "look at that" plus one of my wifes good friends is a CM in the show.
I don't remember the first thing from when I was younger... but the first thing from the last time I went....
The first Disney park we went to on that trip was Epcot... we got to be behind the scenes and stuff because we were performing that day at the park. So the first time I got to see the behind the scenes stuff..... nothing spectacular but still interesting.

I would have to say the very first time I went to Disney World, I was amazed at Cinderella's Castle. To me, it was the most beautiful thing on this earth. Of course back then I was only 8 years old!
The first thing that made me say "look at that" when I became a CM was seeing all the broken Norway boats lined up on stilts top be fixed behind the scenes. They were in various stages of disarray. The more complete ones had CMs sitting in them. Later I saw that there were signs telling them to keep off but no one paid attention
My first trip to WDW was as an adult. Our first stop was the MK on a rainy day, and all I could see or think about was getting my children's raincoats on under the train station. As soon as we were ready, we walked out and our DD4 screamed, "There's the CASTLE!! There's Cinderella's Castle!" I couldn't take my eyes off of her as she beemed with pure joy. THAT was my first "well, look at that" moment at WDW.
